The Grimaldi Forum will be the venue for a specialist heart conference starting on Thursday, March 2, and continuing through Saturday, March 4. Organised by the Heart Valve Society, this congress will bring together about 600 specialists in heart valves, from all over Europe, the United States, as well as from Asia and the Middle East. The focus will be on the small valves in the heart that prevent the blood from flowing back in the wrong direction.
Professor Gilles Dreyfus, Medical Director of the Cardio-Thoracic Centre of Monaco, is the President elected for the year 2017. He is enthusiastic about bringing his colleagues together in such an environment of excellence. “It’s the perfect meeting of all the world’s specialists, be they cardiac surgeons, cardiologists or researchers, eager to participate and exchange knowledge,” he said.
Topics include some of the amazing advances in medical imaging within the heart, indications of risks, and also the benefits of early intervention on valves, and the important role of Biomarkers in surgery.
