29th great wall International conference GWICC

AHA @ GW-ICC Joint Forum – Great Wall International Congress of Cardiology (GW-ICC) 2017 – Evaluation and Management of Hypertension

AHA @ GW-ICC Joint Forum – Great Wall International Congress of Cardiology (GW-ICC) 2017 – Evaluation and Management of Hypertension – Impact of SPRINT and Other New Evidence

It has become a tradition for world renowned cardiology associations to send delegations to GW-ICC congresses.

Professor Jeroen J. Bax, President, European Society of Cardiology (ESC), Professor John Warner, President, American Heart Association (AHA), and Professor Mary N. Walsh, President, American College of Cardiology (ACC), led delegations attending the 28th GW-ICC, to present latest international guidance, cutting-edge diagnosis and information on treatment with emerging technologies.

Cooperation with these international societies is not limited to their attendance at GW-ICC; GW-ICC also holds reciprocal academic sessions at the annual meetings of these eminent societies, for example GW-ICC @ ACC, GW-ICC @ AHA, and GW @ ESC, to introduce important Chinese academic research.

At the 28th GW-ICC in 2017, the AHA @ GW-ICC Joint Forum, which was held over three sessions, focused on population health, guidelines and real-world evidence; cardiovascular disease prevention: hypertension, smoking cessation and blood lipid management and systems of STEMI care.

A video of one of these 2017 sessions, Update on Practice Guidelines, is now available to view on the GW-ICC YouTube channel:

Evaluation and Management of Hypertension – Impact of SPRINT and Other New Evidence

 

Presenter: Sidney C. Smith, Jr., MD, FAHA, FESC, FACP, MACC, Professor of Medicine and Director of the Center for Cardiovascular Science and Medicine at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA.

Dr Smith discusses how there is strong evidence that lower is better than higher for treatment of hypertension in selected high-risk populations. More data is needed in populations not covered by SPRINT (e.g. diabetes, stroke) and on ideal combinations of antihypertensive medications considering race/ethnicity.

Further information on the 29th GW-ICC, to be held October 11th -14th, 2018, in Beijing, China, is available on the congress website:
