MIECT - Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Circulation Technologies (engl.)

1st International Symposium (Greece-Switzerland-Germany), June 13th-14th 2014, Thessaloniki, Greece

We are proud and honored to announce the organization of the 1st International Symposium on Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Circulation Technologies (MiECT), which will be held in the charming City of Thessaloniki, a city that stands for 23 centuries between reality and bliss, a seductive new-age Balkan metropolis that brilliantly combines ancient and Byzantine remnants with a unique cosmopolitan lifestyle.Minimal Extracorporeal Circulation comprises an emerging technology, associated with excellent clinical results. However, despite the evolving attitude in Cardiothoracic Surgery towards minimal invasive techniques, penetration of this contemporary technology, though promising, is low. Our aim for the 1st International Symposium on Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Circulation Technologies (MiECT) is to introduce a multidisciplinary, up-to-date Scientific Program, in order to highlight this promising technology to both clinical practice and industry. Cardiothoracic Surgeons, Perfusionists, Cardiac Anaesthesiologists and Industry Representatives are invited to create an International Forum for exchanging ideas, having as an ultimate goal to further progress this technology in clinical application and research.
