The latest science and treatments in emergency cardiac care
Date:9/7/2012

More than 400 scientific abstracts will be presented by international scientists, providing a great source of news stories for journalists. The full scientific programme is available here.

"This first annual Congress of the new Association will highlight the importance of various professionals working together to improve the outcomes of patients with acute cardiovascular disease," said Professor Peter Clemmensen (Denmark), president of ACCA. "It will focus on all acute cardiovascular disease cases admitted acutely, from the pre-hospital phase to the emergency room, and the stays in the coronary care unit and intensive cardiac care unit."

Over 40 sessions will be held on myocardial infarction, acute coronary syndromes, acute heart failure, life threatening arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death, resuscitation, acute valvular diseases and general intensive care.

Experts from around the globe will provide comprehensive updates on diagnosis, systems of care and therapies, including state of the art technology and devices.

Professor Christiaan Vrints (Belgium), former chairman of the ESC Working Group on Acute Cardiac Care and past-president of ACCA, said:

"There will be innovative information on the management of acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock, acute arrhythmias and acute coronary syndromes."

Professor Bulent Gorenek (Turkey), chair of the scientific programme and local host of Acute Cardiac Care 2012, added:

"Myocardial infarction is the number one cause of death in developed countries. The novel developments in diagnosis and treatment discussed at the Congress will be of great interest not only to cardiologists, but also to journalists and the public who all need to know how to react when faced with a heart attack".

For the first time this year experts will present challenging clinical cases in acute cardiology from their daily practice. Management of cases and implementation of guidelines1 will be discussed with the audience and experts will provide recommendations for daily practice.

The Acute Cardiac Care Congress attracts cardiologists, emergency physicians, nurses, paramedics, surgeons and technicians. This multidisciplinary flavour is reflected in the main theme of the Congress, "Integrative approach and management of Acute Cardiovascular Diseases".

The Cardiologists of Tomorrow will have an increasing role at the Congress by organising scientific and educational sessions, including a challenging case in cardiogenic shock, and chairing some sessions.

Professor Clemmensen said:

"Becoming an Association of the ESC has increased our visibility within the ESC and beyond and we hope that this will boost attendance at the Congress in Istanbul."

Professor Gorenek concluded:

"Istanbul is the cultural and finance capital of Turkey. With a population of more than 11 million, it is a unique city that connects the two continents of Europe and Asia."
