WELCOME TO csi america

Catheter interventions in congenital, structural and valvular heart diseases and heart failure


Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure to formally invite you to join CSI America 2023 - the 5th edition of CSI in the USA. We are excited to announce our collaboration with AdventHealth Nicholson Center, a medical research and training facility in Orlando, Florida. 

The main scientific program of CSI America will provide an update on the latest trials, studies, new devices, techniques and hot topics in the field.

At CSI America 2023, we are adding a new feature to the program - a cardiac catheterization laboratory experience on live animals. Attendees will be able to perform interventional procedures in swine under the guidance of world class faculty.

Our ever popular cathlab café sessions will give attendees and faculty the chance to share and discuss their most interesting cases in an informal setting.

 We are passionate about improving the lives of patients with cardiovascular disease by creating platforms for exchanging knowledge both in-person and virtually.

We look forward to meeting you in Orlando, USA this year, November 15 - 17, 2023.

Yours sincerely,

Zahid Amin, Stefan Bertog, Issam Moussa, Horst Sievert, Sir Shakeel A. Qureshi

(On behalf of the board of directors)

"I just wanted to say how impressed I was with your team at the meeting in Denver. All the girls were SUPER professional, helpful and organised.
If I’m allowed to say it I was really proud of them and I think they are a very big part of the show."

John Thomson, Johns Hopkins University
Baltimore, USA


“It was a great pleasure to see you in Denver. I thought that the meeting was really superb. Congratulations on it.”

David Holmes, Mayo Clinic
Rochester, USA


“The cath lab café sessions were very good – I think they should be incorporated more into the meeting proper.”

Howard C. Herrmann, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, USA


“It was an excellent meeting and, absolutely, I hope to return to CSI Denver next year.

Really liked the set-up for the panelists/moderators (non-elevated "living room stage" rather than the elevated less personal set-up we see in many other conferences). Cannot think of anything specific that should be improved. What came to my attention during the heart dissection and hands-on device simulation session (which was really well attended) is to include a wet lab where attendees can learn how to snare devices such as interatrial septal/PFO/LAA occluders and misplaced coils (this is something that many fellows will not see during their fellowship).

Absolutely, the Cath Lab cafe and bootcamp sessions were very good.”

Stefan Bertog, Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Medical Center
Minneapolis, USA


“It was my honor to be there. I absolutely loved the interaction.”

Vinod Thourani, Piedmont Heart Institute
Georgia, USA


“Well, that was a very enjoyable meeting all round. Thank you for including me.
The Cath lab cafes are a great idea - they were nicely interactive and the relatively small group concept was not intimidating or threatening for those presenting cases where things did not go to plan or resulted in a complication. This format encouraged interactive comments.

I thought the split between structural and congenital was perfect. The AV setup was flawless.
It was clear that the University of Colorado faculty worked very hard on both sides of the programme and that was acknowledged around the coffee and lunch breaks by many others. Respect.

Live cases outstanding, fireworks, flowers, and chocolate for the CHCO team.
I didn't 'poll' people directly but had several comments as to how there was a 'bit of a buzz' around the meeting. Maybe because it was a sort of 'welcome back to proper conferencing' reaction but nevertheless if the programme and speaker performance hadn't been good I don't think we'd have had those comments. The overall 'feedback' which I came across informally was extremely positive.”

Neil Wilson, Oxford, UK


“Thank you very much for the wonderful congress experience at CSI 2021 in Denver; the organisation has been extraordinary, I had a wonderful time, and meeting you was a pleasure! 
Thank you again for your wonderful organisation and the excellent support throughout the process and I hope to see you again sometime at one of the other CSI events!”

Sebastian Feickert, Vivantes Klinikum
Berlin, Germany


“Great meeting at CSI America… 
I enjoyed the presentation and discussions accordingly…
Let’s continue the work with all of is at CSI”

Maurice Buchbinder, Foundation for Cardiovascular Medicine
San Diego, USA


“Happy to have participated.”
