ECS Working Groups

Imaging working group

We have been heavily involved in protocol development and harmonisation. Reliability of intra-operative MR imaging as a postoperative baseline scan. Perfusion imaging is still an area of active protocol development and a subgroup is being set up specifically to further the multi-centre use of this.
We are also actively involved in promoting data sharing and the creation of a data repository supporting clinical trials. This should support both radiological review and quantitative analysis.

prevention working group

The European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention is  the cornerstone of a comprehensive intervention which includes an educational programme, risk factors control and the patient’s voluntarily adoption of a healthy lifestyle to be kept for lifetime.

Heart failure working group

The working group heart failure regularly organizes training and continuing education events failure and it related subjects. It is committed to standards in the treatment of heart failure in UAE , which are summarized in the recently published guidelines. It is important that these standards are applicable in everyday life, because the treatment of these patients is complex and rarely easy . Next , the working group heart failure supports the introduction of a networked service. Finally, enables collaboration within the working group on the subject of scientific activities in UAE.

surgical working group

The rapid evolution of the new transcatheter technologies represents a unique opportunity to tailor the therapeutic treatment to the specific patient’conditions. The ECS Working Group on Cardiovascular Surgery is devoting all its efforts to enhance the interaction between the cardiac surgery and the cardiology communities in order to promote a systematic “heart team approach” which is the most effective way to deliver a really “patient centered” care.

Acute cardiac care working group

Cardiac Care working group is now a proud member of ECS. The best doctors in our community have joined together to form a multi-specialty high-performance medical group that puts patients first. Our physicians are united by the mission of providing better, more coordinated care for their patients.

EPS working group

The ECS Working Group on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology provides a friendly and informal environment favouring free exchange of ideas in the fields of: cardiac ion channel physiology; excitation-contraction coupling; myocardial electrophysiology and related fields of cardiac physiology and pathophysiology.

Intervention cardiology working group

The working group with intervention aims at contributing to the Mission of the ECS by developing a platform of clinical and scientific exchange between all health care professionals involved with percutaneous interventions. the working group aims to foster a close and mature collaboration with industry partners, based on a clearly defined code of conduct.

Pediatric and Congenital working group

The Working Groups represent different subspecialties and specific areas of paediatric and congenital cardiology. the working group has been set up within this Association to bring together workers with similar interests in order to facilitate research and collaboration with paediatric cardiac surgeons, adult cardiologists and other scientists in closely related fields.
