The track category is the heading under which your abstract will be reviewed and later published in the conference printed matters if accepted. During the submission process, you will be asked to select one track category for your abstract.

Interventional cardiology refers to diagnostic and non-surgical treatments of the heart. Cardiac procedures are used to diagnose and treat many types of heart disease. Stanford's interventional cardiology is a world leader in percutaneous coronary revascularization, which restores blood flow to the heart when its vessels are damaged or blocked. Each year, the staffs of the Invasive and Interventional Cardiology Section see thousands of patients with almost all types of heart disease. Our workers treat people of all ages who suffer from severe, sometimes fatal, heart disease.

Congenital heart disease (congenital heart defects) is an abnormality in the structure of your heart that you are born with. Although congenital heart disease is often considered a condition of childhood, advances in surgical treatment mean that most babies who have died from congenital heart disease survive well into adulthood.

Across the globe more people die from cardiovascular disease than any other cause. So to keep our heart healthy many heart disease treatments and preventive cardiovascular medicines has been discovered. Various cardiovascular programs have been introduced to make people aware of Heart health.

Heart Regeneration mainly aims at repair and regeneration of Heart tissues and muscles. In this process we try to cure various heart diseases such as ischemic heart disease, coronary heart disease, heart failure etc. Various researches are going on to develop heart regenerative medicine so that the heart diseases can be cured easily. 

  • Track 4-1Heart regenerative medicine
  • Track 4-2Stem cell therapy
  • Track 4-3Challenge of regenerating heart

The diagnosis of the heart can be made by various methods such as imaging techniques, surgeries, electrophysiology, angiography, radiography, etc. Medical care is very essential once heart disease is diagnosed. The goals of treatment are stabilizing the condition, controlling long-term symptoms, and providing healing if possible. Stress reduction, diet and lifestyle changes are key factors in the management of heart disease, but the main care is medications and surgery.

Heart devices are those devices which are been used for Heart care. Some of the devices helps heart to work properly such as the pacemakers helps the heart on maintaining regular rhythms whereas the defibrillator tracks the heartbeats. Some of the heart devices are left ventricular assist device, pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillator and many more. 

  • Track 6-1Ventricular assist devices
  • Track 6-2Implantable cardioverter defibrillator
  • Track 6-3Pacemakers
  • Track 6-4Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

Cardio-oncology is helping the patients who are going through cancer treatment.  In this the cardiologists evaluates the risk on Heart due to various surgeries, cancer drugs, or radiation treatment. It involves various treatments such as trans-esophageal echo, Exercise and pharmacologic stress echo, Exercise and pharmacologic SPECT and PET, Stress cardiac MRI, Cardiac CT angiography, Coronary calcium score, Carotid IMT, comprehensive preventive strategies for optimal heart health, Nutrition counselling and many more.

  • Track 7-1Cardio-toxicity
  • Track 7-2Cardiac CT angiography
  • Track 7-3Cardiac rehabilitation
  • Track 7-4Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)

Pediatric Cardiology is the branch of medicine that deals with the study of Heart defects, acquired heart disease and system abnormalities pulmonary circulations in the fetus, newborn, child and young adult. When a paediatrician suspects a heart problem, they consult the pediatric cardiologist to investigate further. Common causes for a referral to the paediatric cardiologist include heart murmurs, hypertension, dizzy spell etc. Initial evaluations may result in the patient and his/her parents being reassured that there is nothing to worry about.

  • Track 8-1Cardiomyopathy
  • Track 8-2Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
  • Track 8-3Hypertension
  • Track 8-4Heart murmur

Cardiac nursing itself suggest that the care of the patients suffering from heart disease. It involves the advance cardiovascular care for patients such as the surgical tests, stress tests, cardiac monitoring and heath assessments. It plays vital role in the evaluation of heart status towards various cardiovascular diseases.

The heart is a muscular organ; this is the size of a closed fist. The responsibility of the heart is the pumping of blood through the blood vessels through recurrent rhythmic contractions. The heart consists of cardiac muscle, involuntary muscle tissue. The term "cardiac" means "heart-related", that is, a four-chamber double pump and is located in the thoracic cavity between the lungs, with the heart muscle being a conduction system of its own, which contrasts with Skeletal muscle Needs conscious or reflexive nervous stimuli. Rhythmic contractions of the heart occur instinctively, although the heart rhythm may be altered by nervous or hormonal influence such as exercise or perception of danger.

Veterinary Cardiology is the study of heart and circulatory system in animals. The veterinary cardiologists focus on the diagnosis and treatment of the heart and lung diseases such as congestive heart failure, coughing and other breathing problems, diseases of the pericardium, high blood pressure, age related changes to the valves of the heart, pulmonary hypertension and many other diseases.  Depending upon the animal health condition the Veterinary cardiologists perform various physical and chemical examinations and on the result basis the diagnosis/ treatment is done which includes Pacemaker implantation in animals to maintain the heart rate, evaluation of blood pressure, ECG, cardiac surgery for the congenital heart defects, sonography and may other modern treatments to treat heart diseases are used.
