This is the first online version of the updated “Fundamentals in Cardiac Surgery” – series being held as a virtual meeting and focusing particularly on coronary artery disease.
The lectures of the course are covering clinical aspects from the diagnosis of coronary artery disease to advanced investigations and medical therapy necessary for the decision-making and treatment of the patients. An overview over the most important trials and current guidelines, mechanical support for complex cases to avoid pitfalls and different techniques including off-pump and minimal invasive approaches will be presented. In the accompanying breakout rooms the participants are invited to join the discussions of selected cases, get in touch with the lecturers and faculty members and exchange experience and discuss questions. The course is also covering the technical aspects of conduit preparation and a step-by-step instruction for proximal and distal anastomoses.
The updated “Fundamentals”-EACTS 2021 courses are in alignment with the current EBCTS syllabus
