It will be held in Florence on 8 and 9 June, with the sponsorship of AICARM Onlus,
II MASTERCLASS – HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY AND CARDIAC AMYLOIDOSIS.
The course aims to provide participants with an exhaustive and updated framework on the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of patients with hypertrophic phenotype cardiomyopathies and amyloidosis, transmitting the clinical and research experience gained in over 40 years in the Florence Center at Careggi and at the Meyer, with the valuable contribution of experts from prestigious national institutions. The topics covered are extremely broad, and range from basic sciences to cardiac surgery, from genetic diagnosis to new pharmacological perspectives and gene therapy. The Workshops are designed to offer an overview of clinical cases, with discussion of the various possible options in the clinical therapeutic decision-making process, also working in small groups, with the evaluation of the patient's echocardiogram and MRI images, up to the interpretation of the genetic analysis . All the teaching staff have a long and specific experience in the sector, and are specifically trained to maintain an extremely practical, informal and interactive cut during the relationships. The novelty of this edition is the direct participation of representatives of our patient associations, a valuable contribution for those who want to cultivate a truly all-round "cardiomyopathy mindset".
