EuroValve 2013



Dear All,
We are proud to present EuroValve, a new annual congress that will take place in Spain, France  and Italy.
The first edition will be held in Convencion Hotel in Madrid, on November 8 & 9, 2013.
As you know, valvular heart disease is getting more and more frequent and now represents one of the most frequent heart diseases.
Incredible advances have occurred in the last few years about valves diseases, concerning both their evaluation and their management.
New diagnostic techniques, new therapeutic strategies, new therapeutic methods are now available.
From genetics to surgery, from epidemiology to transcatheter valve replacement, from echocardiography to new imaging techniques,
EuroValve 2013 will illustrate these most recent advances, presented by the best world specialists
in valve disease
The format of EuroValve 2013 will be as attractive as possible, including clinical cases discussions,
meet the expert sessions, controversies, symposia, and other interactive sessions.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Madrid.
José Luis Zamorano, Gilbert Habib, Patrizio Lancellotti

Rhythm 2013



Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We have the great pleasure to announce the next RHYTHM congress edition will take place in Marseille again, from May 30 to June 1.
The preliminary program is currently under construction and will be very soon posted on this website, that we invite you to visit regularly.
The new venue, chosen this year, is the Palais du Pharo, a very professional and convenient congress center with a magnificent view over the Vieux Port of Marseille.
The RHYTHM congress has now become a major event in rhythmology, and we hope all trainees, specialists and industry players will join us to take part to our ambitious challenge: share and release the best continuing education toward each stage of the patient care.

« The RHYTHM 2013 course directors » : Patrick Attuel, Claude Barnay, Fiorenzo Gaita, Jean-François Leclercq and André Pisapia.

Cardiotechnix 2013 - International Congress on Cardiovascular Technologies


Technology has been essential for the advancement in cardiology diagnostic and treatment since the first accurate recording of the electrocardiogram and its development as a clinical tool in 1895, also the year of the discovery of X-rays by W.K.Röntgen, followed by ultrasound application for medical diagnosis by Dussik in 1941, and many other technologies. In the XXI century significant advances continue to be witnessed even more frequently and it seems evident that there is a very high potential of improving healthcare quality by combining medical knowledge in the area of cardiology with engineering technologies, especially those derived from communications, electronics and informatics.

Isocyanates and Health: Past, Present and Future


The purpose of this scientific conference is to identify and discuss the latest knowledge and important issues on the health effects of isocyanates, including current best evidence about exposure monitoring, environmental controls and clinical management.


• Worker and consumer protection issues
• Environmental exposure/monitoring
• Occupational health surveillance/management
• Toxicity testing/animal models/biomarkers
• Respiratory epidemiology and disease
• Human cancer risk
• Research to practice/health communication (integrated across each theme above)


The purpose of this multidisciplinary international conference is to identify and discuss the latest knowledge and important issues on the health effects of isocyanates, including current best evidence about exposure monitoring, environmental controls and clinical management.

The conference brings together leading scientific experts, regulators, clinicians, industry and worker stakeholders from around the world to present and discuss the current state of knowledge regarding isocyanates - what is known, what is not known and to identify research priorities to move the science forward in areas relevant to regulators and policy-makers as well as all stakeholders involved in worker protection, monitoring occupational health and safety, workplace practices and clinical management.

Target Audience

This Conference will be of interest to Bench and Clinical Scientists, Occupational Medicine Specialists, Industrial Hygienists, Clinicians, Pulmonary, Immunological Allergy Specialists, Researchers, Toxicologists, Government Research and Regulatory Agencies, Industry and Worker Representatives, Health and Safety Organizations, Health Communications Specialists, Isocyanates Manufacturers and Secondary Users, Consumer Health Organizations.

Rencontres Lyonnaises de Rythmologie


Les journées francophones de formation continue en rythmologie auront lieu à Lyon les 7 et 8 Février 2013. C’est le succès chaque année renouvelé des sept éditions des journées lyonnaises qui nous a encouragé à ouvrir cette manifestation au-delà
de l’hexagone. Nos collègues experts du Québec, de la Belgique et de la Suisse seront donc présents pour enrichir débats et discussions.
Comme à l’accoutumée les thèmes abordés seront multiples et permettront à chacun de s’informer sur les principales innovations de chaque champ de notre discipline. La diffusion des connaissances dans un domaine complexe et rapidement changeant est essentielle pour une meilleure prise en charge de nos patients. C’est pour cette raison que nous souhaitons faciliter les rencontres entre scientifiques, industriels, associations de patients et soignants dans une ambiance chaleureuse et stimulante.
