Main topics:
We are very pleased to invite you to the next, 23rd edition of the Warsaw Course on Cardiovascular Interventions (WCCI). The event will take place at Hotel Airport Okęcie in Warsaw, 24 Komitetu Obrony Robotników Street, on 10-12 April 2019.

It is a renowned course recognised by interventional cardiologists not only in Poland but also in other European countries, USA, and Asia. WCCI is officially accredited by the Association on Cardiovascular Interventions of the Polish Cardiac Society, the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI), and EuroPCR. Thanks to the collaboration with EAPCI and EuroPCR we are honoured to have excellent lecturers who are interventional cardiologist not only from Europe but from all around the world.

As usual, we prepared this year’s Course programme very carefully. The programme comprises three main scientific topics supported with live case transmissions from operating theatres.

The first topic concerns coronary revascularization, the second revolves around structural heart diseases and valvular heart disease, whereas the third concerns peripheral artery disease. Let’s not forget about recently introduced changes in a health care system in Poland – on the first day there will be two debates on these subjects. To make the Course more attractive, all sessions will take place simultaneously in various rooms. Thanks to this, every WCCI attendee can individually pick the sessions which he or she finds to be the most interesting.

Just like every year, various live cases performed in cardiac catheterization laboratories at the Institute of Cardiology in Warsaw and, Invasive Cardiology Clinic at the Hospital of Internal Affairs and Administration in Warsaw, and also from centres with which we closely collaborate: Budapest, Brno, and Toulouse will be shown during the Course. Also, there will be lectures and discussions with world-renowned specialists in cardiology, cardiac surgery, angiology, invasive radiology, and vascular surgery.

As always, the course programme includes satellite symposia that present recent clinical studies results and innovative treatment devices and techniques in interventional cardiology.

During the first day of the course, there will be a Young Practitioners Master Class in interventional cardiology organised under the auspices of AISN, EAPCI, and PCR. The course is intended for young doctors from Central and Eastern Europe, those who are starting their activity in percutaneous coronary artery angioplasty and contribute to the popularisation of the Warsaw Course in Poland and abroad.

Registration surveys for the WCCI and for the Young Practitioners Master Class will be soon available on the Course website: WCCI
