Program Highlights

22nd Interventional Cardiology Symposium

Presented by the Montreal Heart Institute

Dear Colleagues,
Following the success of our 2012 event, we are pleased to present the 22nd edition of the annual Interventional Cardiology Symposium in Montréal.

It seemed like just yesterday we were marking the Symposium’s 20th anniversary, but we are now well into our third decade, with plenty of achievements and milestones to look back on. The Symposium has built a legacy on its international forum for cardiology professionals, and its spotlight on the latest discoveries and developments in the field. Attended by colleagues from North America, Europe and Asia, the Interventional Cardiology Symposium is simply the best event of its kind anywhere.

Taking place from June 10 to 12, 2013 at the Centaur Theatre in Old Montréal, the Symposium program for 2013 includes an impressive roster of leading cardiologists who will share their insights on the latest issues and innovations. As in previous years, live cases broadcast directly from operating rooms in Montréal, along with videos of the most cutting edge surgical interventions, will be an essential part of our stellar scientific program.

We are excited to welcome you here in Montréal. Consistently rated as one of the world's most multicultural cities and best place to live, Montréal offers up a symphony of delights for all tastes, from fine dining, outstanding architecture, a dynamic nightlife, beautiful green spaces and over 500 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!
