Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases nowadays occur in patients who are on average 15-20 years older than those enrolled in trials used to build international guidelines.
Therefore, cardiologists feel the need to confront with geriatricians and gerontologists in order to define multimorbidity, frailty and disability and choose the best therapeutic options to select an individually tailored management, in which quality of life and functional independence are considered to be more valuable goals than life expectancy.

The main issues of Geriatric Cardiology will be discussed in the International Congress following a multidisciplinary approach and, for each issue, the gaps between guidelines and real clinical practice will be highlighted, with an attempt at filling such gaps through the production of shared consensus statements.

In accordance with this general goal, the international speakers will be asked to provide the key elements that are needed to best assess the risk / benefit ratio of therapeutic strategies in multiple areas of cardio- and cerebrovascular diseases in older persons. The main topics will be arterial hypertension, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, stroke, ischemic heart disease, structural cardiology and cardiac surgery and electrical therapy of cardiac diseases.
