Welcome Message

On behalf of the course Co-directors of the 17th annual Cardiac conference of King Fahad Armed Forces hospital I would like to welcome you all to our meeting. This meeting had been planned as its predecessors as a physical meeting here in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. We would have truly been honored to welcome you in our city as our guests but given the current COVID19 pandemic we decided to adopt a virtual platform as your safety is our primary concern.

This three day conference is dedicated to catheter-based therapies for structural heart diseases. It is run in collaboration with the American College of Cardiology’s Interventional Council (ACCIC), the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), the Society for Cardiac Computed Tomography (SCCT) and the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE). We are greatly appreciative to these renowned Institutions for their enthusiastic support and collaboration with us to produce this exciting program and outstanding faculty. The conference sessions will include live in a box presentations on the BASCILICA, and LAMPOON procedures, imaging as well as didactic session by leading world authorities on edge to edge mitral repair, transcatheter mitral valve implantation, edge to edge tricuspid repair and LAA closure amongst others. This will be an opportunity to engage with experts from across the globe that will be coming to you this October.

The conference will be preceded by the sixth edition of the Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions Fellows’ course (SCAI Arabia-Middle East Edition) a project that was initiated in Saudi Arabia in 2014 and that currently rotates between Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey.

The SCAI Fellows’ course will run in parallel with two imaging workshops run respectively by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) and the Society for Cardiac CT (SCCT). The relationship between SCCT and KFAFH dates back to 2010 with the first SCCT course in the Western Region of Saudi Arabia that was conducted at KFAFH. The ASE workshop includes an exciting Point Of Care UltraSound (POCUS) course on this increasingly important bedside tool.

As a registrant for this meeting in addition to the rich educational experience on offer, there will be a virtual exhibition hall that will be accessible 24/7 during the four days of the meeting. In this unique virtual exhibition hall our industry partners will be showcasing the latest devices, innovations and interventional therapies in their pipeline. You will also have the opportunity to interact with our industry partners on a one to one basis using a dedicated chat room

Furthermore, as a registrant to this meeting the Society for Cardiac CT has offered a pathway to a discounted 12 month membership. Further details will be made available upon registration.

Wishing you all a most educational, engaging and interactive experience at our virtual venue.
