on behalf of the Organizing Committee, it’s a pleasure to invite you to attend
the International Congress “Breaking the Cardiovascular Continuum through
Understanding, Recognition, Treatment and Prevention of the Disease”.
The cardiovascular disease still remains one of the major threat to human health
and well-being. Nevertheless, we are aware that significant progress in our
understanding of the disease has contributed to reduce its level of morbidity and
mortality and that a better comprehension of the pathophysiological mechanisms,
the development of novel therapeutic agents, and the evidence of landmark clinical
trial data have confirmed the concept of a cardiovascular disease continuum and
reinforced the paradigm that intervention at any point along this chain can modify
progression of the disease.
Our aim is to carry on the process of acknowledgment and expertise of cardiologists
and other healthcare professionals coming from all over the world, sharing
information on basic science, risk factors, organ-target damage and outcomes
as well as discussing the updated recent guidelines of relevant cardiovascular
We believe that the meeting of experts, clinicians and scientists will fuel spark
and contribute to sharing approaches, enhancing cooperation and shaping the
future of cardiovascular disease management models.
Attending the Congress won’t mean only a scientific experience, but also a cultural
and social opportunity; you will be our guest for the Gala Dinner held in the Palace
of Grand Dukes of Lithuania, the most important building of the city and we will do
our best to leave you some spare time to enjoy Vilnius and its environment, seizing
the occasion to know our culture, our history and our touristic insights.
We hope you will enjoy your stay in Lithuania!
