New Frontiers in Interventional Cardiology workshops (NFIC) is an annual meeting in Krakow (Poland) which gathers cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, specialists in angiology and radiology from all over Europe, Japan and USA.
On behalf of Course Directors, Co-Directors and Organizing Committee we would like to welcome you at the 20th NFIC in Krakow, Poland on December 11th-13th, 2019.
The first meeting took place in 1999 and since then it has grown into an international workshops with more than 1400 participants each year (doctors, nurses, pharmaceutical industry). The course focuses mainly on acute coronary syndromes and live case presentations with panel discussions. However, each year dedicated sessions to new challenging innovations in interventional cardiology are also held including structural heart disease, imaging and peripheral interventions. Over the years, NFIC has become the leading Polish and European conference devoted to innovations and new technologies in cardiology. The event presents and popularizes the latest solutions that use augmented and mixed reality (HoloLens goggles), which introduce a new quality in international consulting and diagnosing patients in real time and allow even more accurate treatment planning. It is also a great opportunity for a better and more effective education for future cardiology and medicine adepts.
There are also satellite symposia and hands-on training (CTO workshops) as well as sessions dedicated for students.
NFIC is an event not only for experts but also for patients. An important part of the conference is Patient’s Day where the cardiovascular patients play the main role. Last year, lectures of specialists, free medical consultations and special guests attracted over 1,000 patients from all over the country.
