During the last 10 years, ECMO has become the first line circulatory as well as respiratory support in many centers worldwide.
The cardiac surgery and ICU teams of the Pitié-Salpêtrière Cardiology Institute were early leaders in this field. This is why we organized 5 years ago a yearly meeting named Paris International Congress on ECMO dedicated to circulatory as well respiratory support with ECMO.
There are still many topics to investigate with ECMO which will therefore remain on the center stage of our conference. However, ECMO is mainly used by expert teams which include cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, and intensivists who treat patients with profound shock who often need prolonged support. Interventional cardiologists mainly treat cardiogenic shock due to acute myocardial infarction. In this setting, there is a need forTemporary Circulatory Support (TCS). The use of such devices is increasing and the data looks promising.
The Paris International Congress on ECMO is addressing the treatment of cardiogenic shock and must stay at the forefront of new technologies, including new Temporary Circulatory Support systems. This is why we decided to cover this field and to associate well known interventional cardiologists to ourscientificboard.
The Paris International Congress on ECMO will therefore become the TCS-ECMO Congress.
Our aim is to include sessions on new percutaneous ventricular assist devices and generate interaction between interventional cardiologists,heart surgeons, intensivists, anesthesiologists on this new and exciting field.
