Congress Description/Objectives


The overall mission of the 63rd Annual World Congress of the International College of Angiology is to bring together basic and clinical scientists to share current knowledge and techniques in angiology to update the pathophysiology of disease, clinical diagnostic methods, and treatment for improved healthcare delivery and future research. 

This program will provide a forum for the synthesis of State-of-the-Art information that encompasses the pathophysiology, clinical diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases as they are encountered by primary care physicians, vascular, general, thoracic, cardiothoracic, and cardiovascular surgeons, neurosurgeons, cardiologists, internists, and cardiology and vascular interventional radiologists. The theme of the 63rd Annual World Congress is “The Sun Still Rises-Angiology 2022.” 

This Congress is designed to meet the specific educational needs of medical professionals involved with the management and treatment of cardiovascular diseases as they are encountered by primary care physicians, vascular, general, thoracic and cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists, interventional radiologists, neuroradiologists, fellows and residents of the above specialties, vascular biologists, their staff and nurses.

The objective is to offer a serious academic forum to those physicians and allied healthcare personnel interested in research, education and clinical investigation in the field of cardiovascular medicine and surgery.

The intention is to provide an in-depth review of the spectrum of topics related to the management and treatment of patients with cardiovascular and vascular disease. Special emphasis will be placed upon evolving trends, therapies, and minimally invasive treatment of cardiovascular disease. The congress will feature internationally renowned faculty, and recognized leaders will discuss state-of-the-art techniques in the management, diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease. The focus will be on surgical, percutaneous and medical management from peripheral vascular disease to coronary and cerebrovascular disease and abdominal aortic aneurysms offering a comprehensive review of what is new in management, techniques, approaches and prevention.

This Congress is designed to offer a serious academic forum to those physicians and allied healthcare personnel interested in research, education, and clinical investigation in the field of cardiovascular diseases. The congress is intended to provide an in-depth review of the spectrum of topics related to the management and new treatment modalities, including diagnosis, assessment, intervention, risk factors management and surgery. 

 At the conclusion of this activity, the attendees should be more confident in their ability to:

1.         Examine concepts related to cardiovascular diseases.

2.         Discuss strategies to improve patient outcomes in managing cardiovascular diseases.        

 3.         Analyze treatment strategies that involve complex patient situations with multiple contributing risk factors.

Learning Objectives
After completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe and apply the value of an integrated approach to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac and vascular disease.
  • Assess and differentiate between competing technologies for vascular intervention.
  • Choose when and how to appropriately apply various interventional and non-interventional procedures in the treatment of vascular disease.
  • Describe new developments and techniques in the diagnosis, medical management, and treatment of cardiac, peripheral vascular and cerebrovascular disorders to make improved patient care decisions based on outcome and cost. 
  • Enhance knowledge in the practice of treating vascular disease.
  • Identify and explore new research problems for future collaboration.

All presentations have a purpose while providing a balanced view of diagnostic and therapeutic options followed by constructive debate. These objectives are achieved through nationally and internationally recognized invited guest lectures, special symposia, oral and poster presentations and exhibits, highlighting the most challenging and controversial topics and procedures performed in interventional medicine. Submitted abstracts and invited guest lecturers serve as a major part of the overall program.


Needs Assessment
There is a lack of awareness about new management and treatment strategies.

•                There is underutilization of novel devices to optimize patient outcomes.

•                There is insufficient prophylactic use of pharmacological agents to optimize care.

•                There is a lack of evidence-based practice integrating research with clinical experience to provide optimal care

As health care delivery to patients with complex vascular disease improves, a multidisciplinary approach is often needed to care for these patients. We are addressing the gaps needed to make these treatment plans more effective.

As outlined by the planners of the Heart and Lung RSS, healthcare team members need to improve their competencies pertaining to mechanisms and treatment of arrhythmias, appropriate use of cardiovascular invasive and non-invasive diagnostic modalities, new vs. conventional modalities for treatment of valvular heart disease, congestive heart failure diagnosis and management, current ACC/AHA Guidelines and applying appropriate criteria for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.Implementation

Learners will be queried as to their anecdotal impressions of changes to their patients' outcomes as a result of changes they have made in practice performance.  The following methods will be utilized:

Didactic lectures and Q and A (lectures provided for the instruction of learners)

Case study/review (provides an account of an actual problem or situation)

Group discussion (provides an opportunity for interprofessional learners to think together constructively for purposes of learning, problem-solving, decision-making and/or improving human relations)

Formal debate (allows controversial topics to be explored from pro and con points of view, engaging audience response to debaters)

Ancillary tools used to sustain long-term changes consist of follow-up cases and patient reminders.

Core Competencies
The following core competencies that will be used in this activity are:

ACGME/ABMS, Patient Care and Procedural Skills, Medical Knowledge, Practice-based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, Systems-based Practice

Educational Partner and Accredited Provider
Northwell Health, Office of Continuing Medical Education is the educational partner and accredited provider for this program.
