The Pediatric & Adult Interventional Cardiac Symposium (PICS/AICS)
The Pediatric and Adult Interventional Cardiac Symposium – PICS-AICS 2015 is being held at the Aria Hotel, Las Vegas from September 18-21, 2015. The focus of this years meeting is on how we can overcome greater complexity through collaboration. Hence we have focused sessions outlining opportunities for greater integration with adult structural heart disease specialists and congenital surgeons. We have endeavored to ensure the meeting continues to support open dialogue as well as visual learning, along with updates from all the relevant trials and societies, with real opportunities for networking and sharing global clinical and research experience.
This year, a record number of abstracts have been submitted and a committee of experts has chosen nearly 190 abstracts for oral and poster presentations. The abstracts cover the entire gamut of interventional cardiology for congenital and structural heart disease. Two awards will be issued this year: one for the best oral abstract presentation and the other one for the best poster abstract presentation.
I hope through this journal, which is the official journal of the PICS Foundation, you will be able to read through these interesting abstracts and learn more about the work our colleagues around the globe are doing in this exciting field. If you have any comment on any of the abstracts, feel free to communicate with the editors of the journal.
