Location: Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, 9 Queen Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1JQ

The 2017 RCPE Cardiology Symposium promises to deliver interesting and practical insights into commonly encountered clinical problems facing physicians in the emergency department, the out-patient clinic or on hospital wards.

The symposium will concentrate on the following areas:

  • Mitral and aortic valve disease,
  • An update on infective endocarditis,
  • Imaging in adult patients with congenital heart disease, their management during medical emergencies and assessment of  shunts,
  • Separating reality from myth surrounding the relationship between elevated troponin concentrations and occlusion of epicardial coronary arteries,
  • Device treatment for heart failure and prevention of further cardiac embolisation in patients with stroke,
  • Myocarditis,
  • Cardio-oncology.

The symposium is aimed at consultants and trainees in cardiology and acute medicine but will also provide a useful overview of key areas in cardiology for GPs, allied health professionals and medical students.
