Cardiovascular diseases remain as a leading cause of death, despite a great number of clinical researches, significant improvements in diagnostic tools, prevention strategies, medical managements, and interventional or surgical techniques. Annual Iranian joint cardiovascular congress (IJCC) is a wonderful opportunity for sharing valuable experiences of the international and national experts in all cardiovascular disease fields. In the 7th IJCC that will be held in Rajaie Conference Center in Tehran, twelve national scientific societies will have different joint meetings in addition to specific sessions. At the first day of this event, an interesting valve repair workshop will be moderated as a live in box session by a well-known cardiac surgeon, Professor Gebrine El- Khouri from Belgium. General issues like Heart failure, diabetes and heart disease, debates on myocardial revascularization, epidemiologic aspects of heart disease and horizon in cardiovascular disease will be discussed in the main hall. For the first time, two new topics of “highlights of cardiovascular researches in Iran” and “the role of technology in the practice and promotion of cardiovascular disease” have been added to the main hall programs. Physicians, cardiac nurses and physiotherapists, and also perfusionists have submitted 302 abstracts. After online review process, 74 abstracts have been selected for oral and 104 for digital poster presentations.
