     INVITATION FROM THE CHAIRPERSONS
     Dear Friends and Colleagues,

     Over the years, the field of Cardiology has undergone an enormous expansion in clinical and basic
     data as well as in field-related technology. The problem of cardiac diseases has reached
     epidemiological dimensions, and treatment possibilities are being explored in different directions.
     This development has created a need to debate the many controversial issues and reach clinical
     conclusions.

     The 1st World Congress on Controversies in Cardiovascular Diseases (C-Care) is intended as an
     exclusive forum for international experts to share and compare experiences, in order to outline the
     right treatment for patients. A congress focusing on controversies is a new concept. It is designed
     primarily to enable an effective debate about unresolved issues, resulting in agreed-upon answers
     supported by evidence-based medicine and expert opinion.

     Participants will have the advantage of discussing and debating these unresolved issues with leading
     world experts. The Congress aims to reach the best answers currently possible and provide the
     clinician with reliable, up-to-date scientific solutions, based on the best existing evidence.




    Invitation
     We invite you to take part in the 1st World Congress on Controversies in Cardiovascular Diseases:
     Diagnosis, Treatment and Intervention (C-Care), which is intended as the first of many future
     editions.

     We look forward to an exciting event in the beautiful city of Berlin.


     Sincerely,
     J.P. Bassand, C. Hamm, A. Vahanian, W. Wijns
