21th Interventional Cardiology Symposium

Presented by the Montreal Heart Institute

Dear Colleagues,

Following the success of our 20th anniversary meeting and celebrations in 2011, we are pleased to present the 21st edition of the annual Interventional Cardiology Symposium in Montréal.

For over two decades the Symposium has provided an expert forum for cardiology professionals to view the most recent discoveries and developments in the field, in the company of colleagues from North America, Europe and Asia. Taking place June 14 and 15, 2012 at the Centaur Theatre in Old Montréal, the Symposium program for 2012 includes an impressive roster of presentations by leading cardiologists to share their insight on current issues and the latest innovations. As in previous years, live cases broadcast directly from operating rooms in Montréal, along with videos of the most recent and illuminating surgical interventions, will be an essential part of the scientific program.

Recently named a UNESCO City of Design, host city Montréal welcomes Symposium delegates. Consistently rated as one of the world's most livable cities, Montréal offers up a symphony of delights for all tastes, from fine dining, outstanding architecture, a dynamic nightlife, beautiful green spaces and over five hundred kilometers of bike paths, to a plethora of cultural and sporting events that are sure to keep the most ardent fans entertained.

We look forward to seeing you here!
