2024 Cardiometabolic Syndrome Conference

Cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) is a complex medical condition associated with significant morbidity, mortality, and cost. It is increasingly appreciated that the condition is also linked to non-cardiac disease including fatty liver disease and cancer. The underlying pre-morbid conditions for CMS include hypertension, insulin resistance and type II diabetes, elevated serum lipids, and obesity. Despite a deep understanding of the roles these pre-morbid conditions have on cardiovascular disease, liver disease, and malignancy and increasingly effective treatment strategies, the most recent projections predict dramatic growth in each of the risk factors and subsequent clinical disease. This suggests that we need to look beyond standard healthcare solutions to the social drivers of health, new community partnerships, and innovative research programs if we intend to alter the trajectory of CMS. The proposed program will convene key stakeholders across a variety of disciplines to re-imagine new approaches for CMS.


11th Annual International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences

The 11th Annual meeting of the North American Section meeting of the International Academy of the Cardiovascular Sciences (IACS-NAS) will focus on new approaches for the prevention, diagnostics, and therapies for various cardiovascular diseases. These include base editing/gene therapy, stem cell research, hypertension, heart failure, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, peripheral artery disease, and carotid artery disease. The conference will also explore the potential benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence and machine learning in healthcare. Renowned cardiovascular scientists from around the world will deliver lectures and share their expertise with attendees, making this conference an excellent opportunity for building collaborative research programs and for young researchers to learn and grow. By attending, participants can gain cutting-edge knowledge and establish valuable professional connections to enhance their ability to improve health outcomes and save lives.


ISEVS Interactive Cardiovascular Symposium

Houston’s premier hands-on endovascular event is held in the heart of the Texas Medical Center. This international symposium provides endovascular specialists with the latest information on the fast-changing treatment of endovascular disease. Didactic lectures from world-renowned cardiovascular interventionalists will teach attendees about cardiovascular imaging techniques and how cardiovascular care has transformed in the telemedicine era. The symposium also features an intensive hands-on workshop where attendees practice various interventional techniques. The course features tracks for novice, intermediate, and advanced cardiovascular interventionalists.

12th Current Trends in Aortic and Cardiovascular Surgery

The 12th Current Trends in Aortic and Cardiovascular Surgery Symposium is poised to be a transformative educational experience, dedicated to addressing the continuous evolution in the field of cardiovascular surgery. With a specific focus on aortic and cardiac procedures, the symposium aims to deliver a comprehensive update on the latest advancements and insights.


Echo Review Boot Camp for 2024 Echo Board

The Houston Echo Review is a two-day hybrid course of lectures, interactive discussions, and case presentations designed to prepare cardiovascular specialists for the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) examinations. The course will be a fast-paced review of topics similar to those covered in the ASCeXAM scheduled for July 2024.


The Ali Massumi Cardiac Arrhythmia Symposium

The Ali Massumi Cardiac Arrhythmia Symposium is a 1-day hybrid symposium designed to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of healthcare professionals with regard to all aspects of arrhythmia management. This symposium will raise awareness and educate healthcare professionals about new management methods for and developments in treating patients with arrhythmias, along with the best practice approaches to clinical diagnosis, evaluation, and management of abnormal heart rhythms.

2nd Annual Perioperative Mechanical Circulatory Support Symposium (Adult & Pediatric) & Cutting-Edge Critical Care Echocardiography Workshop

The 2nd Annual Perioperative MCS Symposium is a 2-day hybrid course. The symposium will take advantage of modern educational concepts to provide clinically relevant material through an interprofessional and multidisciplinary approach to the perioperative management of patients undergoing mechanical circulatory support (MCS). In addition, a complementary advanced critical care echocardiography (CCE) workshop will be offered. The highly interactive approach puts the learner in the position of the clinician needing to make both simple and more complex decisions commonly faced when providing MCS and utilizing CCE. Concurrent sessions focused on adult and pediatric patient populations will provide attendees with the latest perspectives on MCS care for patients of all ages.

Global Cardiovascular Symposium

The 2024 Global Cardiovascular Forum highlights new guidelines, approaches, technologies, and procedures in the care of the cardiovascular patient to educate a national and international audience of physicians in the recent changes to the practice of cardiology. The faculty will discuss recent ACC/AHA guidelines, aortic stenosis, transcatheter aortic valve replacement versus surgical replacement in younger patients, percutaneous coronary intervention versus coronary bypass grafting, treatment strategies and barriers to caring for underrepresented patients with heart disease, the indications, risks and benefits of non-invasive assessment of chest pain and intravascular coronary imaging and novel treatments for atrial fibrillation.
