EUMS 2018 will be held in Paris from December 5 to 8 and to be organized by La Pitié with new perspectives to mark up the maturity of the MCS (Mechanical Circulatory Support) therapy, 30 years of MCS already!
Several publications report on refractory heart failure patients despite advanced treatments: medication, rythmology. Almost ~30% of patients are not responding to treatment. For these patients population, MCS could become a good alternative to improve care and living conditions.
For all these reasons we consider EUMS 2018 in Paris will be the right time and the right place to make some changes we expect to have a positive impact for the patients’ treatment and medical community. We are pleased to welcome cardiologists from CRM and HF in addition to cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensivists, rehabilitationists and VAD coordinators.
Our final goal for the next decade is to expend the multidisciplinary approach in treating heart failure patients and develop: Heart Failure Device Therapies.
