The world's largest heart failure congress -- Heart Failure Congress 2012
Date:3/20/2012

ons in which 16 abstracts will be briefly presented with Q&As to follow, a perfect format for journalists to pick up story ideas.

Sessions will be devoted to new devices for therapy and patient monitoring and controversies over when to use CRT (for example patients with atrial fibrillation or a narrow QRS). "There are subgroups of patients where it's controversial whether the benefit is there or not," says Professor Stefan D Anker, President-Elect of the HFA. "There is a big cost argument also. These devices don't come for free and of course many want to maximise the benefits to cost ratio when the number of devices they can implant is limited."

Held during 19-22 May 2012 at the Sava Center in Belgrade, Serbia, the congress is organised by the HFA in conjunction with the European Section of the International Society for Heart Research and the ESC Working Group on Myocardial Function. The collaboration has increased the focus on translational and basic science. "When you want to develop new therapies it's always important to have interactions with basic science because you need to look for new mechanisms and new targets," says Professor Anker.

The congress promises to be a rich source of news stories for journalists. The eagerly anticipated 2012 European guidelines for heart failure will be launched by Professor John JV McMurray (Glasgow, UK) on the first day. "This is going to be the premiere of the most important and relevant recommendations for all cardiologists on how to manage heart failure," says Professor Ponikowski.

Professor Gregory YH Lip (Birmingham, UK) will launch "Thromboembolism and antithrombotic therapy for heart failure in sinus rhythm", a consensus document from the HFA which has been endorsed by the ESC Working Group on Thrombosis. The document will be simultaneously published online in the European Journal of Heart Failure. It's a great chance for journalists to cover the latest advice on the timely issue of
