Thijs Eijsvogels, Bram van Bakel, Niels Stens and Kristian Berge represented our department at this largest cardiovascular conference in the world (±19.000 attendees).
Kristian presented the final chapter of his PhD thesis in an e-Poster session. The title of his talk was “National Early Warning Score 2 provides independent prognostic information in patients hospitalized with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction” and the abstract can be accessed here.
Niels presented the outcomes of his meta-analysis entitled “Prognostic value of left ventricular global longitudinal strain in patients with severe aortic stenosis for transcatheter aortic valve implantation-related morbidity and mortality” which can be accessed here.
Thijs was invited to participate in the Great debates on troponins, which was held on one of the main stages. He accepted the challenge to convince the audience that exercise-induced cardiac troponin release is not a benign phenomenon, but a marker of myocardial injury. Prof. Sanjay Sharma from St Georges University was his opponent, while Dr. Aaron Baggish moderated the session and summarized the pro’s and con’s. The debate was fierce but fun. All speakers agreed that this topic is not black or white, but rather a continuum with many scales of grey.
