Public Release: 

EuroPCR 2015, the world-leading course for cardiovascular interventions

EuroPCR 2015 takes place in Paris, France, from May 19-22, 2015


EuroPCR 2015 opens its door on May 19th at the Palais des Congres in Paris, France. Under the leadership of Alberto Cremonesi (Italy), Jean Fajadet (France), William Wijns (Belgium) and Stephan Windecker (Switzerland) the course will gather close to 12,000 participants from all over the world, all committed to cardiovascular interventions.

EuroPCR prides itself in being a course, that is, a specific time when and a dedicated place where you share relevant learning that adds value to your practice as an interventional practitioner. Why? For the benefit of your patients, through sharing knowledge, experience and practice.

The EuroPCR programme is structured through five tracks: four that characterise the main fields of cardiovascular interventions; i.e., coronary interventions, interventions for structural heart disease, peripheral interventions, interventions for hypertension and heart failure; and another dedicated track to cathlab nurses and technicians. The programme features a mix of breaking news, live case demonstrations, oral abstracts, posters, debates and tips-and-tricks tutorials.

Confirming its global outreach and audience, EuroPCR will feature live cases from seventeen institutions from eleven countries: Brazil (Sao Paulo), Canada (Montreal), China (Nanjing), Czech Republic (Brno), France (Massy, Toulouse), Germany (Bad Krozingen, Bad Nauheim, Essen, Neuss), Italy (Cotignola), The Netherlands (Rotterdam), Saudi Arabia (Jeddah), Switzerland (Bern) and the United Kingdom (Glasgow, London).
