The Year's Major Event In Cardiovascular Medicine: ESC Congress 2010

The European Society of Cardiology Congress 2010, the world's biggest international meeting in Cardiology will be held in Stockholm, Sweden, from 28 August to 1 September 2010.

The spotlight of ESC Congress 2010 will be coronary artery disease (CAD), 'from genes to outcome', which the chairperson of this year's program committee, Professor Fausto Pinto, describes as still the number one cause of death in the developed world. 'What we'll be seeing in this year's program,' he says, 'is how developments in basic science are now being translated into clinical progress in the early diagnosis and treatment of CAD. This is an area which involves the laboratory and the clinic, and a range of specialists which includes technicians and nurses, family doctors and consultant cardiologists. They will all play a part in this year's program.'

Last year's ESC Congress in Barcelona attracted almost 32,000 registered participants (as well as 750 registered press), making it the largest medical meeting in the world; this year's event promises a similar attendance.
New fpr 2010 is a one-day program on Saturday 28 August for primary care physicians and nurses. The program is open to all but has been designed with Scandinavians in mind, and this too may provide much local interest. The congress's opening press conference will also take place on this Saturday, at 9.00 am.
ESC Congress 2010 promises once again to be the world's major event in cardiovascular medicine.
