 Other GW-ICC 2018 co-hosted sessions include:

American Heart Association (AHA)

Session title: Hypertension 2018: Understanding Genetics, Prevention Strategies and Management

Over a billion people around the world have hypertension, which is said to be the most important risk factor for premature cardiovascular disease. The root causes of hypertension remain unknown. In this session Ivor Benjamin, Professor of Medicine and Director of the Cardiovascular Center at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, WI, USA, will discuss studies that are helping us understand genetic origins of high blood pressure and Sidney C. Smith, Jr., Professor of Medicine and Director of the Center for Cardiovascular Science and Medicine at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA, will discuss treatment strategies for patients with confirmed hypertension according to the new AHA/ACC hypertension guidelines.

Korean Society of Cardiometabolic Syndrome (KSCMS)

Session title: State-of-Art Cardiometabolic Syndrome

Adequate prevention and treatment are important for prevention of cardiovascular events, development of type 2 diabetes, and dementia. Recent national studies from Korea and USA reported that the prevalence of cardiometabolic syndromes is stable, but not decreasing. State-of-Art pathogenesis, prevention, and treatment will be discussed during this session.

Japanese Circulation Society (JCS)

Session title: Heart Failure Topics – from molecular mechanisms to cutting-edge treatment

Numbers of heart failure patients is rapidly increasing globally. This session will present topics related to heart failure including molecular mechanisms and cutting-edge treatments.

Turkish Atherosclerosis Society (TAS)

Session title: Clinical Links of Pathogenetic Mechanisms in Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is usually silent until the development of a cardiovascular event. Cardiovascular events generally occur before atherosclerosis is detected. The detection of atherosclerotic processes and its related clinical importance is therefore of great significance for prevention. The aim of this session is to evaluate some underlying causes of this condition and their impact on the development of atherosclerosis.

European Heart Journal (EHJ)

Session title: The Year in Cardiology – the EHJ Perspective

Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT)

Session title: 30th TCT Anniversary Perspectives of Interventional Cardiology
