ESC Congress 2010
The year’s major event in cardiovascular medicine promises a rich source of news and features

The scientific programme for this year’s ESC Congress, which will take place in Stockholm from 28 August to 1 September, is now complete and promises to provide journalists with a rich source of front-page news stories and background for strong topical features.

The spotlight of ESC Congress 2010 will be coronary artery disease (CAD), ‘from genes to outcome’, which the chairperson of this year’s programme committee, Professor Fausto Pinto, describes as still the number one cause of death in the developed world. ‘What we’ll be seeing in this year’s programme,’ he says, ‘is how developments in basic science are now being translated into clinical progress in the early diagnosis and treatment of CAD. This is an area which involves the laboratory and the clinic, and a range of specialists which includes technicians and nurses, family doctors and consultant cardiologists. They will all play a part in this year’s programme.’
