Pediatric and Adult Interventional Cardiac Symposium (PICS), Chicago

Date: September 07, 2022 - September 10, 2022

Sidra Medicine will be participating at the Annual Pediatric and Adult Interventional Cardiac Symposium (PICS) from the 7th to the 10th of September, 2022. PICS is one of the largest cardiac symposia dedicated to the latest breakthroughs in the treatment of patients with congenital and structural heart diseases. 
PICS will focus on the latest interventional catheter strategies for congenital and structural heart disease in children and adults. It will put the spotlight on technologies in devices such as implantable valves, stents, balloons, and other approaches.

The program will include daily live case demonstrations from cath labs at Sidra Medicine (Qatar), Sick Kids (Canada), Lurie Children’s Hospital (Chicago), Rush University Medical Center (Chicago), Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Ohio) and Mayo Clinic (Minnesota).  In addition, there will be daily taped cases performed by master operators from Tokyo, Memphis, Omaha, Utrecht, Munich and Cairo - featuring detailed discussions of the cases with technical “how to” tips.

PICS will also feature special didactic sessions discussing the closure of septal defects of all types, percutaneous valve implantation & repair; stents; hybrid techniques; and much more. The educational program will include debates between surgeons and cardiologists, oral and abstract poster presentations, and “My Nightmare Case in the Cath Lab.”
