    La Pitié-Salpêtrière Cardiology Institute of Paris will organize next June to the 9th International PARIS TCS-ECMO Congress!

    This Congress will feature the latest evidence on temporary organ support devices for advanced cardiac and respiratory failure.

    A specific congress track will be dedicated to Temporary Circulatory Support (TCS) devices, that are increasingly used by interventional cardiologists to treat cardiogenic shock due to acute myocardial infarction and end-stage cardiac failure.

    The congress will also provide state-of–the-art discussions on the indications and results of extracorporeal gas exchange techniques (venovenous ECMO and ECCO2R) for acute respiratory failure.

    Cardiologists and particularly interventional cardiologists, heart surgeons, pulmonologists, intensivists, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, respiratory therapists, perfusionnists, nurses will have the unique opportunity to discuss with world key opinion leaders all theoretical and practical management aspects of these emerging and very promising technologies

    Hope to see you in Paris next June!
