About EAPCI


Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.

 

Who we are

The EAPCI was created in 2006. Its objectives and activities stem from the synergy between the assets of EuroPCR and the former ESC Working Group on Interventional Cardiology.  Across all our activities, EAPCI aims to foster a close and mature collaboration with industry partners, based on a clearly defined code of conduct. Post-graduate education, improving patient access to device-based therapies and promoting clinical research represent obvious areas of common and shared interest.

What we do

  • The EAPCI contributes actively to the programme of the yearly EuroPCR Course, which has become its official annual meeting.
  • The EAPCI has another official course: PCR London Valves, focusing on the care of patients with valvular heart disease. 
  • The EuroIntervention Journal continues to aim at presenting the best of research and education in our field, including case presentations in lively electronic format.
  • The PCR-EAPCI Textbook: Poised to become the reference for interventional practitioners, the PCR-EAPCI Textbook offers four volumes dedicated to the diagnosis, coronary interventions, structural heart disease, peripheral interventions and perspectives. Both clinically and practically oriented, the Textbook covers everything today‘s interventional needs to know.
  • A strong involvement in the field of education through the Education and Training Fellowship Programme, the ESC eLearning Platform, the EAPCI Fellows Courses... These activities are the main focus of the Association and are being expanded, in close collaboration with the Interventional Working Groups throughout Europe, and abroad.
  • Finally, the EAPCI contributes with enthusiasm to all activities of the ESC, as they pertain to revascularization and other percutaneous interventions, only to name the contributions to the ESC Congress, the EURObservational Research Programme (EORP), preparation and implementation of Guidelines.
