Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee we are honored to invite you to the Sixth Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventions Course, which is going to be held on 20-22 January 2017 in Tokuda Hospital Sofia.
The program will make an update on the most advanced issues of bifurcations and complex coronary interventions  as: left main, innovations in CTO, controversies in interventions in patients with diabetes, perforation management, etc.
The invited faculty comprises of eminent experts in the field coming from Bulgaria and abroad.

The Course will present interesting live-cases with discussions.

For the coming edition we are eager to design an efficient practical Course featuring also a hands-on session for young interventional cardiologists who will be able to perform live-cases under supervision of foreign experts.  Recorded best-case sessions for fellows will also be included in the program.
Participation in the hands-on sessions will be possible for fellows or licensed cardiologists whose licenses have been acquired not more than two years ago counted back from 20 January 2017. Participants willing to attend the hands-on sessions should send a scanned copy of a letter of recommendation given by their head of the cath lab, medical diploma copy, license copy if applicable. Submission of applications will be possible till 2 December 2016, at the e-mail address of the event management company. As places for the hands-on sessions are limited, applicants with valid documents will be listed on a first come first served basis.
Recorded best case sessions for fellows will be a new element of the course program. Best case will be nominated by the foreign faculty.

Cases should consist of a short pdf presentation in English and a movie in Quicktime H.264 format and resolution  720 p or 1080 p. Materials should be sent via WeTransfer, prior to 2 December 2016, to the e-mail address of the event management company. The file should be compressed if its size exceeds 2 gigabytes.
Around 120 participants are expected to attend the course. The course will be held in English.
