March, 8 - 13, 2020


Dear Colleagues and Friends!


After a successful “2nd Heart Team Winter Summit” in March 2019 we want to invite you to our next meeting, the 3rd Heart Team Winter Summit from March 8th – 13th 2020 in Zürs am Arlberg.


By addressing cardiac surgeons, and cardiologists the last meeting was very successful and could attract an equal number of participants as in the years before.

By personal communication we received many positive reflections already at the meeting as well as thereafter and participants expressed interest for a succeeding “3rd Heart Team Winter Summit 2019”.


At this point we take the opportunity to thank all the speakers, chairmen, participants and supporters for their valuable contributions to the Winter Summit 2019. Our thankfulness goes in particular to our industry partners, who are the indispensable pillars of the meeting and enable a broad spectrum of scientific topics to be discussed.


Based on our experience in 2019 we are motivated to expand the spectrum of scientific topics also to the field of pediatric cardiology and pediatric cardiac surgery in 2020. Topics related to these subspecialities will complement scientific activities and discussions in adult cardiac surgery and cardiology.


The meeting will continue with the “spirit” of the former Zürs symposia – to discuss scientific and clinical relevant topics of cardiovascular medicine in a relaxed alpine scenery. This will be an ideal atmosphere for interdisciplinary networking. We encourage you to submit your scientific work as abstracts for oral presentation or video presentation and look forward to see you again at the “3rd Heart Team Winter Summit” in Zürs am Arlberg!
