Event info


Experts in the fields of cardiothoracic surgery, anesthesia, critical care medicine, and perfusion technology will present current best practices for patient care, with a focus on the following areas: surgical and perfusion techniques for aortic aneurysms, adult congenital cardiac surgery, heart and lung transplantation, current techniques for organ preservation, goal-directed perfusion monitoring, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support for adult and pediatric patients, updates on international perfusion education, and advances in the development of the BiVACOR total artificial heart.

The goal of the conference is to share knowledge, skills, techniques, creating an educational dialogue among local and international communities of cardiovascular healthcare professionals.


The symposium has been designed for: cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, interventionalists, cardiology fellows, family and general practitioners, nurse practitioners, perfusionists, perfusion students, autotransfusionists, and ECMO specialists.

• Describe perfusion strategies to measure cerebral oxygen delivery and strategies for goal-directed perfusion.

• Describe optimal perfusion circuit and perfusion techniques for organ transplantation and organ harvesting.

• Recognize current perfusion techniques and strategies for adult congenital heart surgery.

• Describe current perfusion circuits, strategies for cerebral and myocardial protection for aortic aneurysm repair and thoracic surgery.
