2021 ISMICS Annual Meeting Issue A
TAVI Consensus Statement

ISMICS has conducted an extensive series of Consensus Statements over the years, most of which have been published in its journal, Innovations. ISMICS conducted its most recent Consensus Statement on transcatheter and surgical aortic valve replacement in low- and intermediate-risk patients, which represented a collaborative effort by expert cardiologists and surgeons from around the world. You can read this important document on the journal website. This Consensus Statement was also presented and discussed by an expert panel during a webinar that took place on 3 June 2021; view the recording of that webinar.


The ISMICS 2021 Annual Meeting successfully took place as a completely virtual event. In addition to the main plenary sessions, the program featured regular commentary from officers of ISMICS, specific broadcasts for the Cardiac and Thoracic tracks, Symposia and a Digital Marketplace supported by our industry partners. The Keynote Speaker was Polish Statesman, Dissident, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and Former President of the Republic of Poland; Lech Wałęsa. View the content of this outstanding event.
