Summary

This 3 day meeting of the ESC Working Group on Myocardial and Pericardial Diseases aims to communicate progress in basic science and practical management of myocardial and pericardial diseases to a broad audience with an interest in the conditions including physicians, specialist nurses, clinical researchers, pathologists, geneticists, basic scientist and young investigators.



The meeting covers three days and is divided in two parts

The first day is dedicated to educational workshops with “How-to Sessions” and illustrative case study presentations. There will be a focus on genetics, imaging modalities including MRI, echocardiography and CT-scan, in addition to diagnosis and management of myocardial and pericardial diseases. There will also be sessions discussing the results of basic scientific research and the potential impact on clinical management and development of novel treatment modalities by use of gene therapy.

The remaining two days will have a focus on specific topics including genetics in hereditary cardiac conditions, diagnosis and treatment of myocarditis and pericarditis, algorithms for implantable devices for management of arrhythmia and resynchronization therapy, novel algorithms for medical heart failure therapy, mechanical support of advanced heart failure, palliation, rare myocardial conditions including Anderson-Fabry disease and amyloidosis, sports-medicine and prevention of sudden cardiac death.

Accepted abstracts which will be presented as posters and there will be an award for the three best presentations chosen by the scientific committee.

The majority of speakers will be internationally recognised experts in the field of myocardial and pericardial diseases.
