Cardiologists set to present new data at China congress

Chinese cardiologists will be presenting their latest data on cardiovascular disease at the 28th Great Wall International Congress of Cardiology this weekend.

The conference, taking place in Beijing, will highlight research from both Chinese scientists and representatives from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), according to a news release, and “the event promises to shed light on the latest developments in cardiovascular disease in China.”

Local doctors are set to cover a broad range of topics in their presentations, including treatment of coronary artery disease, effects of exercise on blood pressure, mechanisms of diabetes mellitus development, stroke prevention, cardiovascular disease risks, treatment of aortic stenosis, prevention of chemotherapy-induced cardiotoxicity, risk of heart attack in atrial fibrillation patients and mechanisms of developing heart failure, among other topics.

ESC experts will present an exclusive review of the new data presented at this year’s ESC Congress, which took place in late August in Barcelona, Spain. The conference covered recent research in imaging, heart failure, interventional cardiology, arrhythmias, prevention and valvular heart disease.

The Beijing conference is set to run from Oct. 12 through Oct. 15.
