The ESC is the world’s largest cardiovascular congress with over 500 experts sessions and more than 10,000 abstracts submitted contributing to the advancement of cardiovascular medicine worldwide.
“43 years of PCI” is the spotlight of the ESC Congress 2022 in Barcelona. It will highlight the influence of PCI on all areas of cardiology. Furthermore, new ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines – STEMI management, valvular heart disease, peripheral artery disease and focused update on dual antiplatelet therapy – majority of these relating to interventional cardiology will be released during the congress.
