Over 100 speakers for Dubai heart summit

DUBAI, February 18, 2015

More than 100 leading speakers from around the world will take part in the inaugural international conference 4TS (Top To Toe Transcatheter Solutions) opening in Dubai, UAE tomorrow (February 19).

The two-day conference will be held on Thursday and Friday at the Conrad Dubai Hotel, consisting of workshops, presentations, live cases, live in a box session and debates. The subjects covered include coronary intervention, endovascular intervention, vascular surgery and interventional radiology.

The event will be led by conference founder and chairman, Dr Omar Kamel Hallak, chief of Interventional Cardiology and Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at the American Hospital Dubai.

The 4TS conference is being organised in collaboration with the International Society of Endovascular Specialists and the American College of Cardiology Chapter in the UAE (Emirates Cardiac Society).

The conference has been accredited for CME hours by the United Arab Emirates University and European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology.

The inaugural 4TS conference has been specifically designed for physicians who specialize in interventional cardiology, vascular surgery, and interventional radiology, as well as fellows, residents, and other healthcare professionals interested in atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

“This unique conference will bring together the top specialists from the Middle East and beyond the region to look at issues such as a multidisciplinary team approach to treating cardiovascular disease and the potential for transcatheter procedures around the whole body,” said Dr Hallak.

“We have more than 100 renowned speakers participating in the conference , sharing their experience in their fields, from top institutions including Texas Heart Institute, Yale University, Johns Hopkins University, and Washington University, and hospitals across the Middle East.”

Peter Makowski, CEO, American Hospital Dubai, said: “The American Hospital Dubai is pleased to be playing a prominent role in the conference, and sharing our own pioneering work in interventional cardiology undertaken by our team from The Heart Center. We are already seeing the benefits of our multidisciplinary approach to cardiac care with innovative procedures, which are saving lives.”

The Heart Center at the American Hospital Dubai has recently introduced three new procedures offering new hope to patients for very common health conditions – heart arrhythmia, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), and resistant hypertension.

These conditions can be life threatening and are now treatable through advanced minimal access surgery. The American Hospital Dubai launched The Heart Center in 2004 to treat all types of adult cardiac conditions including interventional cardiology and surgery.  – TradeArabia News Service
