MICS 2016 is not just a symposium organised to spread the state of the art in terms of mitral disease. It rather intends to be the foundation event of the Mitral Academy, which represents a larger and more complex project in the world of heart surgery.
The appointment, with the participation of the most renowned Italian and international mitral disease experts, will be held in Rome. A two-day symposium that will present the results and innovation in terms of clinical research as well as both surgical and percutaneous treatments.
Major research studies, explained by the greatest experts in the subject, on the progress of mitral valve repair techniques and on technological innovation constitute one of the topics that will draw the scientific world’s attention to the MICS.
The common objective of this conference is to create the opportunity to share knowledge and experience, thus building awareness about the importance of continuous training, the cornerstone on which medical excellence lies.
The willingness to create an independent Mitral Academy that includes international opinion leaders was born out of the need to have a highly-specialised training school within the field of mitral valve repair surgery so that it can become a melting pot of the best professional surgeons to ensure the best practices to treat mitral
MICS is the final expression of this prestigious and far-sighted project that, we hope, will open new roads in the future within the world of heart surgery.
