Ninth Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventions


Ninth Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventions

04.11.2019

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are honored to invite you to the Ninth Bulgarian Bifurcation and Complex Coronary Interventions Course which is to be held on 24-26 January 2020 in Acibadem City Clinic Tokuda Hospital, Sofia.

Traditionally BBC’s mission is to design a program of presentations delivered by renowned experts providing concise theoretical and practical knowledge on bifurcations and complex coronary interventions. We aim to create a Course of extensive teaching and discussions during which forefront operators would perform live-cases showing modern approaches and technical innovations in the field. Fellow cardiologists will be able to conduct proctored hands-on sessions under the supervision of the best experts in interventional cardiology.

We have defined as main focus of the coming forum Complex PCI in high-risk patients with no other option, bifurcations and other complex lesions as we are positive that bifurcations are significantly present in these type of lesions.

Close interaction between participants, faculty and operators and the friendly atmosphere during the Course are the most valuable assets of the forum. We shall have the chance to enjoy the presence of the International Course Directors – Prof. Yves Louvard and Prof. Robert Gil who are going to share their broad expertise and huge experience.       

Traditionally the Course gathers most prominent European experts in interventional cardiology as faculty and around 120 participants: young cardiologists and doctors from Bulgaria and neighboring countries. Close to 10 nationalities are represented every year by faculty and participants.

Strong partnership with the industry is established in order to be kept with up to date innovations.  

No registration fees will be applicable.

We look forward to meeting you in Sofia!

Sincerely yours:

Yves Louvard MD Robert J. Gil MD, PhD Honorable Course Director International Course Director

Dobrin Vassilev MD – Course Co‐Director

PhD Vassil Velchev MD – Course Co‐Director

PhD Valery Gelev MD, PhD – Course Co‐Director
