Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleague,

The Organizing Committee takes great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the 10th International Congress on Coronary Artery Disease – from Prevention to intervention.

The Florence meeting will follow the format of the very successful previous ICCAD Coronary Artery Disease meetings and will provide a comprehensive update on coronary disease in all its aspects.

Keynote lectures will be delivered by a distinguished international faculty, while a large number of selected free communications will report new data from basic research laboratories and clinical centers around the globe. The program will include sessions on Stem Cell Research and Myocardial Repair, Vascular Biology, Carotid, Peripheral and Valvular Interventions, and TAVI. There will be a major focus on new frontiers in interventional cardiology and to the surgical management of coronary disease.


We look forward very much to welcoming you to ICCAD 2013 – 10th International Congress on Coronary Artery Disease – in the romantic and beautiful city of Florence in October.
