What this meeting is about


Cardiology Update 2019 – Meet the Experts – will provide insight into the role of NOACs in the prevention of cardiovascular events in patients with ischaemic heart disease. The meeting aims at discussing results of recent trials testing the effects of NOAC administration in patients with stable coronary artery disease and peripheral artery disease. The programme will address the role of the coagulation system as a pathogenic factor in the development of cardiovascular events and as therapeutic target.

Cardiology Update is a highly interactive meeting and this year we plan to have more time than that in previous meetings, for questions and answers following the different talks. There will also be clinical case presentations and discussion.

Meeting Objectives


1- To gain insight into the role of the coagulation pathway in coronary artery and peripheral artery disease progression;


2- To understand the effects of anticoagulant therapy in the prevention of major cardiovascular events;


3- To gain insight into the effects of combined anticoagulant and antithrombotic therapies in the prevention of peripheral vascular disease and its complications;


4- To discuss the role of platelets and diabetes in vascular disease progression and clinical outcomes and how to prevent events;


5- To create an interactive forum where faculty members and attendees can have fruitful face to face discussions;


6- To discuss clinical cases that provide insight into novel cardiovascular disease prevention strategies.
