WELCOME TO ASIA PRIMARY ANGIOPLASTY CONGRESS 2016!

APAC 2016 is our 3rd initiative to propagate primary PCI in Asia by providing an interactive and networking platform for interventional cardiologists to share their local experience and learn from one another.

The theme of the 3rd Congress is “Power Up to Do Primary PCI”. We know delivering primary PCI 24/7 is demanding but let us put our hearts and energy together to deliver the best care to our STEMI patients with this theme in mind.

APAC 2016 will feature short lectures covering latest breakthroughs and controversies in the management of STEMI. Interactive case presentations remain the backbone of our program and we will focus on 4 major themes : Thrombus Management/No-Reflow, Cardiogenic Shock/Left Main PPCI, Weird & Fascinating STEMI Cases and Complications in Primary PCI. We will also showcase some of the success stories in improving STEMI outcomes (D2B initiatives) from selected Asian countries.

To add more educational spice, we have included 2 new sessions in our meeting ie Live-In-The-LunchBox session and Mocktail with the Masters. We will continue the use of the iPAD system in our meeting for ALL participants to encourage everyone to ask and answer questions. We want YOU to participate actively and make this a lively & fruitful meeting.

We are particularly touched to see so many friends taking time off their busy schedule to support APAC 2016. So let’s power up for APAC 2016 and welcome to Singapore!
