Welcome to Vienna!

Dear Colleagues

In the beginning of last year we revived the exciting Consensus – Controversy – Compromise – C3 meeting in Vienna. Live procedures and hands-on workshops were combined with high-level lectures. This format of the meeting has ignited many interesting discussions, which we would like to continue. Therefore, we hereby invite you to cordially join us for the C3 Meeting 2020 in February in Vienna.

In the first edition of the interdisciplinary meeting we counted almost 300 participants. Interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and other specialists from Europe and overseas shared their expertise on consensus – controversies – compromise and debated on the management of cardiovascular pathologies.

The Center of Cardiovascular Medicine (CCVM) at Medical University of Vienna / AKH offers, under the umbrella of the Heart-Team Education Association an interdisciplinary activity focusing on:

Consensus – Controversy – Compromise - C3

Pro-Con Discussions, State-of-the-Art Lectures and transmission of Live-Procedures will be the environment to discuss patient specific options by individualized decisions, we will challenge Guidelines and unveil real unmet medical needs.

Bring your expertise and discuss burning questions about new therapies and established treatment algorithms. Catheter-based therapies will be performed LIVE in the Hybrid-OR and the Cath-Lab at AKH-Vienna. Furthermore, novel, complex or minimally-invasive surgical procedures will be performed LIVE and transmitted to the appealing congress venue Hotel Intercontinental Vienna.
