European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery

Meet us in... Barcelona!

We're excited to be present at the 35th annual meeting of the European Association of  Cardio-Thoracic Surgery in Barcelona! 

This year the event is a hybrid meeting; both physical in Barcelona, allowing delegates to attend in-person, or online. The largest event for the cardiothoracic community, the EACTS Annual Meeting offers an exciting opportunity to explore new scientific insights, learn about the latest innovations in cardio-thoracic surgery and importantly, take part in some stimulating debates alongside global experts.

The event will commence on Wednesday 13 October with a full day showcasing new technology and techniques in the Techno-College sessions, followed by the world-class science presentations that will continue over the next 3 days (14-16 October).


The 35th EACTS annual meeting

In the beautiful city of Barcelona, there will be a packed programme of education and discussion ranging from plenary sessions covering the latest guidelines and clinical trials to informative debate through professional challenge, focus and abstract sessions and interactive hands-on training. LifeTec Group will add to the excitement, taking part in the conference exhibition with their hands-on Cardiac BioSimulator platform and showcasing cardiac intervention demonstrations on the booth.

Portable Cardiac BioSimulator

This year, LifeTec Group will showcase their latest version of the Cardiac BioSimulator platform which is significantly smaller than the previous edition, but has the same functionality for device training. As part of the SAFE-CAB H2020 project, LifeTec Group is downsizing the Cardiac BioSimulator to make it portable so that it can be transported more easily. The small size means that it can be brought to any hospital for on-site hands-on clinical training for cardiac intervention procedures on real hearts. Come and see the new small version of this great cardiac training simulator on our booth!

Hands-on device interventions

Besides showcasing the small version of the Cardiac BioSimulator, we will also demonstrate device interventions live on our booth!

This year, we will collaborate with Neochord on their mitral valve repair technology, as we did on previous events. Neochord have recently shared their first-in-human success with their new trans-catheter device NeoChord NeXuS, but at EACTS the NeoChord DS-1000 system will be on display.

Dutch company AMT-Medical are also a project partner in the abovementioned SAFE-CAB project, and their sutureless coronary bypass technique will be performed live on our booth as well.

Are you interested to see how the Cardiac BioSimulator might be useful to you, either in a clinical training setting or in device R&D applications? Then make sure you don't miss us! We will be present at booth 19 in the exhibition hall during the EACTS conference days from Thursday afternoon, October 14th, until noon on Saturday October 16th.

Are you working on a new device technology and are curious to find out if it can be implanted? Feel free to bring it along on your visit to our booth!

We hope to see you at EACTS in Barcelona!
