Catheter interventions in structural, valvular and congenital heart disease

Dear COlleagues,

In 2018 attendees from more than 15 countries gathered in Cairo, Egypt, for the 4rd CSI Africa, a two day congress dedicated to catheter interventions for congenital, structural and valvar heart disease. The scientific program included live transmissions and participants were able to gain extremely valuable experience in our hands-on echo training workshop.

Planning for 2019 has already begun and we look forward to welcoming you to CSI Africa 2019.

We look forward to welcoming adult and pediatric interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, anaesthetists, imaging specialists & colleagues of other disciplines such as nursing staff, who wish to know more about this field.

The aim of the congress is to provide a forum for physicians from the African continent with an opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from each other. A large proportion of the faculty will be local and the scientific program is designed to address issues and topics specific to the African region. Together with industry we will discuss the future of cardiovascular interventions on the African continent.

We hope to see you at CSI Africa 2019!
