19th Interventional Cardiology Symposium

Presented by the Montreal Heart Institute

Dear Colleagues,

Now in its 19th year, the annual Interventional Cardiology Symposium invites you to Montréal for a dynamic meeting on the latest developments in the field, led by a roster of top cardiologists from North America, Europe and Asia. Our program also includes an impressive selection of live cases, broadcast directly from the Montréal Heart Institute, the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, British Columbia and the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. Satellite symposia along with Academic and Industry Buzz, presented by academics plus pharmaceutical and biomedical professionals from North America and around the globe, round out a full three-day schedule.

On June 19, as a special part of our program, we are also proud to include the 1st Annual Cardiac Imaging Symposium. Organized by co-directors Matthias Friedrich of the Stephenson CMR Centre at the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta, Anita Asgar and Josephine Pressacco of the Montreal Heart Institute, and Winfried Willinek of the University of Bonn, this cutting edge event will feature a full day of presentations covering the most recent updates and innovations in this exciting field.

One of top cities in the world for international conventions, Montréal offers delegates a cosmopolitan and accessible location for our event. Well deserving of its solid reputation for innovative gastronomy, an exciting calendar of cultural and sports events as well as a dynamic city life from morning to late at night, Montreal promises to make your stay unforgettable.

We look forward to seeing you here!
