Control and regulation of circulatory parameters in cardiovascular physiology should not only be limited to the epicardial world. A holistic approach including the microvasculature and a subsequent patient-oriented, stratified treatment pathway will improve ongoing angina symptoms and finally quality of life.

“Land Ahoy – The Holistic Physiology Approach” will discuss the emerging evidence in epicardial AND microvascular physiology but also showcase diagnostic approaches as well as different treatment pathways for patients with ischemia with no obstructive coronary artery disease (INOCA) and coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD).

An innovative ship in cardiovascular physiology is sailing to new waters. Let`s share the travel experience!
