Join experts in the field for the three-day programme consisting of interactive lectures, live-in-a-box cases and keynote presentations on topics including preoperative optimisation and optimal treatment in advanced heart failure patients, telemedicine and new options for percutaneous LVAD use

The Summit Chairmen are Volkmar Falk (Berlin, Germany), Finn Gustafsson (Copenhagen, Denmark), Ivan Netuka (Prague, Czech Republic) and Jan Gummert (Bad Oeynhausen, Germany).

Volkmar Falk, said, “The field of MCS is rapidly evolving. Besides all aspects of VAD therapy, the 6th EACTS Mechanical Circulatory Support Summit will cover new concepts for short term assist in the treatment of cardiogenic shock, new devices and the latest developments for mechanical support in right heart failure. The use of organ perfusion systems, prolonged use of micropumps and state of the art in Xenotransplantation will be discussed in the context of VAD as bridge to transplantation. Inspiring lectures by the international leaders in the field and interesting live in box cases will ensure the leading role of the EACTS summit in the field of MCS.”

Last year’s Summit had over 200 attendees, with overwhelming positive feedback. Ninety-eight per cent of delegates who completed the evaluation agreed that the event had met their expectations and 100% would recommend to a colleague.
