Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Improving the quality of life and reducing sudden cardiac death by limiting the impact of heart rhythm disturbances.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.

Rapid Rule-out of Acute Myocardial Infarction using undetectable levels of high sensitivity cardiac troponin
In the diagnosis of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), delays in confirming the diagnosis (rule in) may increase the risk of complications, but also delays in excluding the diagnosis (rule out) interfere with the evaluation of alternative diagnoses and contribute to overcrowding in the Emergency Department (ED) and increasing the cost to the health care system. The current ESC Guidelines recommend not to exclude an AMI before a second hs-cTn measurement (after 3h) is performed. We consider that 3 hours is still a lot of time at the ED, and therefore wanted to improve the rapid-rule out at the ED of the AMI
Currently undergoing peer review. Therefore, I would not like to have the abstract published prior to the publication of the manuscript
First of all, it brings me the excellent opportunity to meet other young fellows and to exchange our ideas and concerns. Furthermore the recognition of my work encourages me to keep on doing research and to pursue my idea of combining clinical work and clinical research in the following years and after
Being member of the ACCA gives me the chance to keep updated about the last advances in the field of Acute Cardiac Care, and the possibility to apply them directly in new ideas for our studies
I would definitely recommend other young fellows to participate in the YIA of the ACCA Congress in the following years, because it is a great opportunity to learn and to have fun at the same time.
