WELCOME TO CSI FRANKFURT


Dear Colleagues, 

2020 has been an extraordinary year for us all. As positive news regarding the vaccine trials and approvals begin to mount, we are looking towards 2021 with optimism and hope. Our community is keen to reunite in person this summer and we are delighted to invite you to be part of CSI 2021, June 24-26 in Frankfurt, Germany.

The congress will provide a comprehensive overview of major topics in catheter therapy of congenital, structural and valvar heart disease and heart failure. CSI is aimed at adult and pediatric interventional cardiologists, imaging specialists, cardiothoracic surgeons, heart failure specialists, anaesthesiologists, nurses, technicians and any other medical specialty involved in congenital, structural or valvar interventions. We are putting together an exciting program with lectures from leading experts and live case transmissions showcasing skilful operators from all over the world. 

The scientific program will offer parallel streams of congenital, structural and valvar sessions as well as hands-on sessions and live transmissions so that you can customise your learning experience according to your interests. Join the full three-day program or drop in for one of our full day focus workshops dedicated to particular topics in the field. You will be able to gain valuable hands-on experience in our Training Hub and learn about the newest devices, techniques and procedures or explore new fields.

CSI Frankfurt will no doubt be different to previous years as we adjust to a new normal after the pandemic:

-

CSI will have an increased online presence leading up to and in conclusion of the event through interactive webinars. More details will be announced soon.

-
The live event in June will be hybrid, allowing virtual attendees to join the conversation from around the globe.

-
For those who travel to Frankfurt, the program will offer more opportunities for hands-on training and direct exchange with leading experts in the field

-

CSI Frankfurt is renowned for its familiar atmosphere, where faculty is approachable, dialogue and discussion is encouraged and the focus lies on networking and direct interaction between attendees, faculty and industry alike. For 25 years, CSI has been a melting pot for physicians from all over the world and we look forward to reuniting in Frankfurt this summer. 

Yours sincerely,
