We would cordially like to invite you to the international workshop on complications during cardiac interventions: management and prevention. This is an extension to the traditional Lausanne course on complications during coronary interventions, now being held for the second time in Düsseldorf, Germany. We plan to continue with the presentation of selected cardiac and not only coronary complication cases by the audience in collaboration with a panel of experts. State-of-the-art lectures on related topics of interest are planned between the individual sessions. The additional focus on non-coronary complications (during EP procedures or treatment of structural heart diseases including valvular diseases) will hopefully increase the attraction.
