The 15th INTERCEPT (INTERnational Course on Extracorporeal Perfusion Technologies) will take place in Milan, April 12th-14th , 2018.
For this edition, we have prepared an exciting scientific program, with international speakers coming from all over Europe and a new format inclusive of satellite symposia and live surgery.
The first day of the INTERCEPT will be totally dedicated to Guidelines for Patient Blood Management, Coagulation and Hemostasis. The year 2017 was incredibly productive for new Guidelines, with the release of the joint EACTA-EACTS Guidelines on Patient Blood Management in cardiac surgery; the SCA guidelines; the ESA guidelines for the treatment of coagulopathy; and finally the last Edition of the ELSO Red Book. So, we asked to many physicians involved in writing these Guidelines to explain and confront them.
As a novelty, day 2 will be totally dedicated to ECMO: the ECMO day, with presentations covering the various aspects and the recent advances in this technique.
At the end of both day 1 and day 2 there will be two Industrial Satellite Symposia, and a lunch session on day 1.
On Day 3 the delegates will be transferred to the Great Hall of the IRCCS Policlinico San Donato (10 minutes by bus) to receive a live-surgery morning. During the live case, they will see advanced hemodynamic monitoring and the application of the Goal Directed Perfusion to a complex case. Intermittently during surgery, dedicated lectures will be offered.
We hope and believe to have settled an interesting scientific program, and we wait for you to attend the INTERCEPT and visit Milan in April 2018.
