Dear Friends and Colleagues,

 

We are delighted to invite you to join us for our 14th Asian Interventional Cardiovascular Therapeutics (AICT) Congress which will be held this year at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) on 7 – 9 September 2018.

Through the AICT Congress, we have been able to provide a forum for our cardiovascular specialists in the region to actively engage one another, as well as to develop a joint academic research and education programme.

With the upcoming merger of AICT and AsiaPCR in 2019 to form the new AICT-AsiaPCR, this year’s 14th edition of the AICT Congress will be a significant milestone for us to celebrate how far AICT has come along since; and to welcome our exciting leap forward in the next year to the new AICT-AsiaPCR Course.

This year’s congress will be an important one for AICT. The 14th AICT will be jointly hosted in Hong Kong by HKCC (Hong Kong College of Cardiology) and HKSTENT. A strong local committee made up of physicians from both HKCC and HKSTENT will be working together with the APSIC (Asian Pacific Society of Interventional Cardiology) to build an enriching and relevant scientific programme of highest educational value for our participants.

AICT 2018 will consist of a half-day AICT-SCAI Course on PCI Complications on 7 September, followed by 2 days of Main Congress on 8-9 September, presenting workshops on CTO and LAAO, controversial topics in PCI, as well as stimulating live cases on CTO, LAAO, TAVI, STEMI, bifurcation and multi-vessel PCI. As with the spirit of AICT, we will also be collaborating with other societies and meetings to bring you joint sessions on different topics to help you learn from the best, regardless of societies and geographical boundaries. Participants from all over Asia will also get to showcase their research and complex cases, as well as interact and share their learnings and experience with one another on this regional platform.

Thank you for your continued support to AICT over the past 13 years and we look forward to having you with us in Hong Kong this September to mark this significant milestone of AICT,
