ABOUT ISCVID

The International Symposium on Modern Concepts in Endocarditis and Cardiovascular Infections (ISCVID) was formed in the late 1980s to bring scientific awareness to the infectious disease, endocarditis. This is a disease of high morbidity and mortality but with very little organised multinational collaboration. In the early 1990s, this society began holding biennial scientific sessions to bring together the community of endocarditis investigators and help further the study of endocarditis, cardiovascular infections, and complex bacteraemia.

Over the years the need for ISCVID updates has increased with the increasing use of implantable medical devices, cardiac pacemakers, and percutaneous heart valves and in the last decade mechanical circulatory support devices all associated with increased risk for infective endocarditis. Vascular graft implantation has also emerged as an important cause of infection with a high morbidity and mortality and in need of organized multinational collaboration. International consensus on prevention of all these infections and management of current complex resistance pattern of infection is a key consideration throughout this meeting.

The meeting is organized though scientific presentations, expert lectures, discussions and symposia and explore infections of the cardiovascular system and their treatment. An excellent opportunity is presented for specialists from infectious diseases, cardiologists, microbiologists, pathologists and cardiovascular surgeons to collaborate on basic and clinical research and discuss the latest scientific knowledge in the management of device infections and complex bacteraemia. Past meetings have been held in Rio De JaneIro, Barcelona, Charleston, Naples and Dubrovnik presenting a continued international collaboration of knowledge for close to two decades.

Who will attend?

 

This will be the first time this conference will be held in Dublin and it will be a unique opportunity to showcase the knowledge and experience of our experts in the fields of Endocarditis and Cardiovascular Infections.

ISCVID delegates will make-up a unique pool of scientific investigators and industry representatives who are actively involved in developing products in the field of pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention and clinical and surgical therapy of all cardiovascular infections.
