10th Anniversary of the National Congress of Interventional Cardiology


10th Anniversary of the National Congress of Interventional Cardiology

22.04.2021

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to invite you on behalf of the Organizing Committee and in my capacity of a President of the Bulgarian Society of Interventional Cardiology to the 10th Anniversary of the National Congress of Interventional Cardiology, which will be held from 30 September until 2 October, 2021 in the new Congress Center in Burgas, Bulgaria.

Last year we faced a tremendous obstacle of a worldwide pandemic, which changed some of our practices. However, interventional cardiology is one of the most dynamic fields in medicine and continues its development even now. The National Congress of Interventional Cardiology is an event that gives us the opportunity of keeping our clinical practice at the highest level. It brings us knowledge of the newest tendencies in the field and helps us develop as a community.

The program of the congress will focus on hemodynamics, TAVI, congenital heart malformations in adults and coronary syndromes. Traditionally, the National Congress of Interventional Cardiology will include a session that represents own experience, live cases, discussions, company symposia, etc.

The National Congress of Interventional Cardiology has always been accompanied by a rich medical exhibition that gives up-to-date professional information on the newest treatment practices in interventional cardiology.

For the Anniversary congress, we have chosen a hybrid form of organization with the opportunity of participating live and online. We will provide a professional organization ensuring that all of the anti-epidemic measures are taken into account.

For additional information on participation, registration and accommodation, please contact our official partner: Congress Management and Events (CME Ltd.) – Mira Bonova, mira@cmebg.com, 00 359 896 700 956 or Denitza Yonkova, denitza@cmebg.com, 00 359 896 700 952.

We are very excited and we shall be happy to welcome you to the 10th Anniversary of the National Congress of Interventional Cardiology!

Yours sincerely,

Assoc. Prof. Vassil Velchev
