In these last years we have witnessed an explosive growth of Cardiology involving both diagnosis and therapy fields. This has resulted in a marked improvement of patients’ management. Accordingly, a deep review of the diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms for all cardiovascular diseases has been introduced providing new models much more effective in clinical practice. For all these reasons, the organization of an International Symposium of Cardiology “From Clinical Evidence to Clinical Practice”, where will attend national and international speakers who have highly distinguished in the research and clinic, assumes an important meaning. The main objective of the Meeting will be to provide an appropriate scientific updating on major cardiovascular diseases. The session dedicated to the heart failure, the prevalence of which is destined to increase in the next years, is going to be focused on the most recent advances in diagnosis, therapy and practical algorithms on patients management. In the sessions on cardiovascular imaging, the role of different modalities will be discussed particularly in the management of different diseases. The session on Ischemic Heart Disease will be focused on: the novel aspects of cardiovascular prevention, the state of the art in the coronary percutaneous revascularization, the medical therapy, the importance of assessing patients prognosis and risk stratification. The cardiac oncology is a matter which is taking more and more interest , for the important diagnostic and therapeutic implications, in a patient population that is likely to grow more and more. In the session devoted to this topic will be precisely analyzed, as well as state of the art, all the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects necessary for proper clinical management of these patients. In the field of valve heart diseases (VHD) will be focused the current pathophysiological, diagnostic and therapeutic problems. The session on arrhythmias has as its main aim to focus the importance of diagnostic, prognostic and management of patients with atrial fibrillation. The program also includes some lectures on different topics. The topics to be addressed and the quality of the international and national speakers is a guarantee of the high scientific profile and the good result of the Meeting.
