Asia Primary Angioplasty Congress (APAC) 2015


APAC 2014 marked an important first step in focusing our minds on STEMI PCI in Asia. Our 2nd  Congress aims to build on this growing enthusiasm and energy by providing an interactive platform for like-minded clinicians to exchange views & knowledge and devise the best primary PCI practice in your country.

The theme of the 2nd Congress is “We Do Primary PCI”.   We look forward to work with you to deliver the best care to our STEMI patients with this theme in mind since our discussions will look into the latest breakthroughs and controversies in the management of STEMI patients.    An integral feature is the series of interactive case presentations that focus on our 4 themes: thrombus management, cardiogenic shock, weird & fascinating STEMI cases and complications in primary PCI.  We will also delve into some success stories of improving STEMI outcomes (D2B initiatives) from selected Asian countries.

For the first time in an Asian cardiology conference, we are using the intuitive iPAD system for all participants to encourage everyone to ask and answer questions.  We want YOU to participate more and make this YOUR meeting.

As we celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Singapore (SG50),  we encourage you to take some time to participate in some of the mesmerizing events lined up during this celebratory period.

We look forward to welcome you to APAC 2015!   ENJOY YOUR TIME IN SINGAPORE!
