Track: Cardiothoracic Surgery

Heart 2023 Conference


Cardiothoracic surgery includes the treatment and conditions of the heart, lungs, and chest. Our Surgeons perform a selection of cardiothoracic surgeries, from minimally invasive to heart transplants. Modern surgery has developed to a certain range that the body of knowledge and technical skills needed have to lead the Surgeons to specialize in particular areas, sometimes anatomical space of the body or sometimes during a selected technique or sort of a patient. Many Cardiological research laboratories are working to advance the understanding of the mechanisms of atrial fibrillation and to implement and develop potential therapies to treat atrial fibrillation and other forms of tachycardia.
