Join us for this invaluable conference where we will consider current practice, recent developments and future possibilities in surgical treatment for heart failure. The role of conventional cardiac surgery for heart failure patients, ECMO support for post cardiotomy cardiogenic shock as well as transplantation and mechanical circulatory support will all be highlighted. Participants will enhance their understanding of how to assess when heart failure patients should have conventional treatment or be referred for transplant assessment, and how ECMO can be used for post cardiotomy cardiogenic shock.
Benefits of attending:
- Appreciate when conventional cardiac surgery should be considered to treat heart failure.
- Understand the role of mechanical support in post cardiotomy cardiogenic shock.
- Be clear of the indications for mechanical support in acute and chronic heart failure and the possible surgical management strategies.
- Comprehend the current state of heart transplantation and novel technologies in organ donation.
This meeting aims to present a comprehensive series of presentations on the surgical management of heart failure. The presentations will provide information about the role of conventional cardiac surgery in the treatment of heart failure, and assist non transplant surgeons to appreciate what is involved in setting up an ECMO support service within a department for post cardiotomy cardiogenic shock treatment. For cardiac surgeons and cardiologists working within transplantation/MCS units the conference will enable them to be up to date with the surgical/MCS strategies available, and review the current position of heart transplantation and its future potential.
