Dear Colleagues and Friends!


After thirty-five years of annual meetings devoted mainly to cardiac surgery, we had in late Winter of 2018 the “First Heart Team Winter Summit” in the traditional environment of Zürs am Arlberg, By involving also cardiologists and basic scientists the 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 “2nd 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 2018. 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 the successful experience in 2018, it is a great pleasure for us to invite you to the “2nd Heart Team Winter Summit” in Zürs am Arlberg from March 9 - 16, 2019. This meeting aims to 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 “2nd Heart Team Winter Summit”  in Zürs am Arlberg!
