ESC Congress 2014 'a resounding success'

'The ESC Congress has been a resounding success and I am proud of finishing my presidency on such a high note.'

With 27 clinical Hot Line presentations, 15 Clinical Trial Updates, 19 Registry studies, four new Guidelines and 4597 abstracts being presented, the ESC Congress 2014 will be remembered as one of the biggest and most exciting in the history of the society.

eLearning, professional unity and accreditation among new ESC President’s top priorities

Fausto Pinto, who became President of the ESC today, says plans to strengthen the accreditation systems in cardiology, the ESC eLearning platform and the role of the Society in Brussels will be high on his agenda:  'Why should patients accept treatment by doctors unless they’ve the confidence in knowing they’ve achieved pre-defined levels of proficiency.'

ESC introduces five new practice guidelines, with a range of tools for everyday application

This year's ESC Congress will see the launch of five new ESC Guidelines: Non-Cardiac Surgery, Acute Pulmonary Embolism, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, Aortic Diseases and Myocardial Revascularization.  The guidelines were developed by expert Task Forces under the governance of the ESC’s Committee for Practice Guidelines. All in all, more than 100 experts are involved in the development of each one.   Read more & access the Guidelines

Far-reaching programme of ESC Registries

Since its introduction in 2008 the ESC’s registry programme - known as the EURObservational Research Programme, or EORP - has grown from just two pilot surveys (both in heart failure) to a broad-ranging and far-reaching programme of 13 registries arranged within the categories of ‘General’, ‘Sentinel’, ‘Special’ and ‘Prevention’ (the last of which now includes both arms, hospital and primary care, of the latest round of the Euroaspire data collection and analysis).

A wealth of opportunities for young cardiologists

The ESC young community (under 36-year old) represents the ESC’s future. Founded in 2010 with the Cardiologists of Tomorrow, its number increases year on year. They are all embedded in different ESC Constituent Bodies. Currently eight ESC young groups are supporting a broad range of cardiology fields of expertise. In 2014, more than 500 young cardiologists benefited from free ESC Congress 2014 registration, thanks to Cardiologists of Tomorrow.

The ESC annual congress has become an international forum

“ Munich 2012 is over. It was an excellent meeting with innovations for our attendees. Munich shows that the ESC annual congress has become an international forum. It is the biggest cardiovascular forum at the moment with one third of our attendees coming from non ESC countries and also there was a focus on education with the launch of the ESC e-learning platform."

Prof Michel Komajda FESC, ESC President 2010-2012
