View the scientific program.

We are proud to be celebrating the fourteenth annual "Controversies and Advances in the Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease" symposium! The symposium will provide attendees with practical, up-to-date information on complex and controversial cases of cardiovascular disease. The latest data and clinical trial results will be presented and debated by cardiologists, interventionalists, and surgeons, allowing participants to weigh the pros and cons of different approaches and discuss the many standard and emerging hybrid methods of treatment.

The scientific program will consist of sessions focused on treatment options for specific cardiovascular disease states. Each session will include a combination of case presentations, cross-fires, discussion panels, and question and answer periods. A faculty of internationally known leaders in the field has been invited to share their knowledge and experiences with complex and controversial cases.

Abstracts must be submitted by November 3, 2014
