 Complex Cardiovascular Catheter Therapeutics - Advanced Endovascular and Coronary Intervention Global Summit
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:Our educational mission is to deliver innovation through a global exchange of scientific research, new techniques and technologies, and to improve patient care through best practices. At the core of C3 are the live demonstrations and lectures by world leaders in interventional cardiac and vascular medicine. C3 will also host joint international sessions to increase attendee interaction with our world-renowned faculty and create a more personalized opportunity to find answers to the difficult challenges of daily clinical practice. Our agenda will include critically important sessions on how healthcare providers must adjust to a new era of scrutiny of our practices, outcomes, and cost effectiveness. As in prior years, C3 will prioritize the education of the next generation of physicians, with fellow and young practitioner programs. By popular demand, the Nurse and Technologist symposium returns to focus on the newest techniques in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Best practices will be emphasized through challenging cases, scientific abstract presentations, and publications sessions.

 Cardiac Rhythm Device Summit: Implantation, Management, and Follow Up
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:The Cardiac Device Summit will provide an update on the indications, follow up, and management of cardiac rhythm technology, emphasizing clinical pearls. Hundreds of thousands of patients receive cardiac rhythm devices each year for brady or tachyarrhythmis and heart failure. In addition, the number of people who may benefit from an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and/or cardiac resynchronization device (CRT) has substantially increased in the past decade. Evolving device technology has increased programming complexity, follow-up, and management. Cardiac implantable device management related to electrophysiology remains a major part of daily practice for cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and non-physician caregivers involved in the management of these devices.
