Program Overview

This two day conference is dedicated to mini-invasive surgery of the mitral valve, in particular, to the recent aspects of atrial fibrillation, the tricuspid and mitral valve surgery, minimally, ultra-minimally and with robotic techniques, and the procedures relative to the less conventional techniques of heart catheterisation.

This conference is designed for many professional figures, including cardiac surgeons, interventional and non-interventional cardiologists, anaesthesiologists and perfusionists, with particular interest in minimally invasive mitral valve surgery, from basic diagnosis to advanced treatment. See the program for the full list.

The faculty consists of world opinion leader in this field who have been invited to share their experience.

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.
