Bologna Heart Surgery Symposium – 28/29 October


Dear Colleagues and Friends, 

We are very glad to announce the third edition of the “Bologna Heart Surgery Symposium” (BHSS), focused again on Aortic Disease, which will take place in Bologna on 28th and 29th October 2024.

A multi-sectorial approach and an in-depth analysis by leading global experts will guarantee an update of knowledge and skills covering the entire spectrum of Aortic Diseases and their treatment. Exciting discussions, pro and cons of new technologies and the latest science on Aortic Disease will provide an unforgettable learning experience and an education leading to improve patient care and better outcomes.

BHSS will be a two-day in-person meeting focused on open and endovascular aortic repair, including aortic valve, with a spotlight on new technologies. It is designed for Cardiovascular Surgeons, Cardiologists, Radiologists, Anesthesiologists, Residents, Perfusionists and Nurses.

The structure of the meeting will include live surgery from our OR of the IRCCSS. Orsola Hospital and live-in-a-box cases alongside with lectures and videos from masters of the field. Interactions between delegates and faculty are the focal point of BHSS and you are strongly invited to send videos showing your personal surgical and endovascular experience. The selected videos will be presented and discussed during the main sessions in a very relaxed and informal atmosphere.

BHSS will also be an opportunity to “discover” new tools for the diagnosis of aortic pathology with special focus on virtual reality and artificial intelligence applied to diagnosis and therapy.

News of this year, there will be parallel sessions for perfusionists and nurses where attendees will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience.

Join us and make it an unforgettable learning experience!
