Four finalists selected from the highest scoring abstracts presented their unpublished work in this dedicated session. The winner of the ACVC Research Prize in Acute Cardiovascular Care was announced at the end of the session and the prize (3000 Euros) and diploma was handed over by ACCA president Prof. Hector Bueno.
The ACVC Research Prize in Acute Cardiovascular Care is a highly competitive and prestigious annual prize for unpublished research. The young and fast growing Acute Cardiovascular Care Association is the primary scientific community for research in the field of acute cardiovascular care. With the successful establishment of the annual research prize, ACCA confirms its role as the leading scientific association in acute cardiovascular care leveraging clinical and translational research in the field.
The ACVC research prize was released for the first time in Geneva 2014.

(Edinburgh, United Kingdom):
"High-sensitivity cardiac troponin testing and the diagnosis of myocardial infarction"
High-sensitivity cardiac troponin assays may improve the diagnosis of myocardial infarction, but increase the detection of myocardial injury in patients without acute coronary syndrome. Across two independent Emergency Department cohort of consecutive patients we evaluated how troponin testing would impact on the diagnosis of myocardial infarction.
“"The ESC ACVC 2016 conference was fantastic. It was a great honour to be short listed and I was delighted to be awarded the ACVC Research Prize. The session was a perfect platform to convey latest research in cellular biology, translational work and clinical medicine. Overall the sessions were a great educational resource especially the workshops for trainees. Look forward to the next ESC ACCA 2018 in Milan!"
