A Comprehensive Review of the Latest Breakthroughs and Advances in Cardiovascular Medicine from a Practical Viewpoint


Practical Update in Cardiology 2021 is designed to provide attendees with a comprehensive review of the latest breakthroughs and advances in cardiovascular medicine. The course will focus on practical management of common cardiovascular conditions such as atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, mitral regurgitation and pulmonary embolism. With a combination of didactic lectures, case-based presentations and panel discussion, faculty will discuss cutting-edge therapies as well as common challenges encountered in daily clinical practice.


By attending this conference, attendees should improve their ability to:

  • Discuss new advances in the management of atrial fibrillation
  • Discuss state-of-the-art care for acute pulmonary embolism
  • Describe cardiovascular complications of COVID-19
  • Review the management of chronic mitral regurgitation
  • Discuss how to reduce cardiovascular risk in diabetic patients
  • Describe the role of genetic testing in cardiovascular disease
