9 ¾ Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventions Course


9 ¾ Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventions Course

03.11.2020

Dear colleagues,

Due to COVID-19 infection of two of the Bulgarian Course Directors the 9 ¾ Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventions Course will be held on NEW DATES: 20-21 February 2021.

For updates on program and additional information, please visit:  http://bbccardio.com

Streaming will be available at: www.bbccardio.com

The sequence of the edition we have chosen for the coming Course in 2021 reflects our desire to save the celebration of the 10th Anniversary for brighter times when we shall be able share it by having you all at a reviving face-to-face summit. It gives us also a hint to the idea that we shall need a variety of skills in order to continue the completion of our mission at present turbulent times – developing our knowledge, enhancing our expertise, most important – preserving our community networking and vivid spirit.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic 9 ¾ Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventional Course will be held virtually. Hopefully this will enable many more new colleagues to join us. No registration fees will be applicable.

Our highly distinguished faculty ensures that all aspects of the proposed event will offer high-quality scientific content.

The Course will include as usual a state of the art overview of scientific achievements on bifurcation lesions and their treatment during the last year and a presentation on the practical approach in implementation of the latest innovations.

The focus of the 2021 edition will be based on profound research on up-to-date role of computed tomography in treatment of coronary artery disease.

Following the tradition BBC 2021 will hope to inspire passionate discussions over the interesting live-case sessions. A dedicated session for fellows will be incorporated in the program as well.

The Course will offer an outstanding, cutting edge scientific program, with support from our partnering companies – sponsors and exhibitors.

We are looking forward to the pleasure of greeting you to the coming 9 ¾ Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventions Course!

Stay safe!

Sincerely yours,
