WELCOME ADDRESS
A warm welcome to the World Congress of Cardiology 2008.
It is our pleasure, speaking on behalf of the joint organizers
of the World Heart Federation, the Argentine Society of
Cardiology and the Argentine Federation of Cardiology, to
welcome delegates from the furthest corners of the globe
to Buenos Aires.
We strongly believe that it is only with each and every
one of us working together that we will make a significant
difference – and that is what the World Congress of
Cardiology seeks to achieve. Our joint focus is on individual,
community and patient care interventions and the growing
epidemic of cardiovascular disease that could and can be
prevented and managed more effectively.
We all know the statistics, or a version of it – that
cardiovascular disease, primarily heart disease and stroke, is
known to be responsible for a staggering 17.5 million deaths
a year. A total, 80% of these deaths are in low- and middleincome countries, and we all have a role to play in changing
this trend, be it through prevention, education or the sharing
of knowledge. These are three key themes that unite the
approach of your World Congress Organizers, not to mention
many thousands of our participants.
And for now – WCC 2008 welcomes world class speakers
with topical and wide-ranging sessions under the theme of
“From patients to populations” – a theme that offers a rich,
diverse and rewarding opportunity to share new and exciting
advances in the fields of prevention and management of
heart disease and all its inter-related factors. Whether it
be part of the official scientific programme, a commercial
satellite symposium or a workshop or taking the time to
discover the wealth of new devices and pharmaceutical
products present in the exhibition hall – the World Congress
of Cardiology offers a wide and rich breadth of educational
material to enhance your personal learning and career. You
will see that the WCC 2008 also offers Continuing Medical
Education Credits (CME) – be sure to benefit from this
internationally recognized programme. Full details may be
found on page 60 of this WCC Final Programme.
As previously communicated, one key objective of
the scientific programme is to feature globally relevant
topics in the diagnosis, management and treatment
of cardiovascular disease, which includes basic clinical
and population research and another is to address public
policy and advocacy topics related to cardiovascular
disease. Whilst these objectives are shared by all three
joint organizers, it is of particular importance for the
World Heart Federation in its continuing relationships
with changing partners to construct your future World
Congresses of Cardiology. It is your participation that
makes the World Congress of Cardiology what it is and
it is your input and feedback that creates an environment
in which to exchange science and build stronger and better
working practices and procedures for the future.
The World Congress of Cardiology, the official congress
of the World Heart Federation, is delighted to be back in
Argentina for a second time. We encourage you to take
the opportunity post congress to visit this beautiful country
and experience the famous warmth of the Argentine people.
Welcome – we look forward to meeting you over the next
few days. Enjoy your World Congress of Cardiology and
Buenos Aires.

World Heart Federation
Improving lives by preventing heart disease and stroke
The World Heart Federation is a non-governmental
organization committed to helping the global population
achieve a longer and better life through prevention and
control of heart disease and stroke, with a focus on lowand middle-income countries.
The World Heart Federation is comprised of 196 medical
societies and heart foundations from more than 100
countries, as well as continental members covering the
regions of Africa, the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe.
Recognized by the World Health Organization, the World
Heart Federation is its leading non-governmental partner
in cardiovascular disease prevention and control.
Our four pillars of activity include: awareness building,
advocacy, demonstration projects and sharing science/
building capacity. Together with its members, the World
Heart Federation raises awareness of heart disease and
stroke, advocates for policy changes, develops projects to
educate communities and patients about reducing the risk
of cardiovascular disease and shares medical and population
health science to build sustainable capabilities at national
and regional levels.
www.worldheart.org
AWARENESS BUILDING
To raise public awareness of heart disease and stroke,
the World Heart Federation develops campaigns and
events. With its members and other partners, it encourages
individuals and institutions to adopt heart-healthy habits
and plays a major role in ensuring that governments
implement policies for cardiovascular disease prevention.
World Heart Day is our most important awareness building
event. It promotes preventive measures to reduce the
incidence of cardiovascular disease worldwide. Today,
World Heart Day is actively celebrated in more than 100
countries and on all continents. This global event, which
takes place on the last Sunday of September and focuses
on a specific theme each year, involves a wide range of
activities, including physical exercise sessions, lectures,
shows, walking tours, healthy cooking competitions,
and health risk assessments including the testing of
cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose levels, along
with BMI and waist circumference measurement.
The Go Red for Women campaign raises awareness
of heart disease and stroke as the number one cause of
death of women worldwide. It encourages the medical
profession to include heart disease and stroke prevention
as a core component of women’s health and urges women
to recognize their risks and to reduce them by adopting
appropriate lifestyle changes.

ADVOCACY
Tobacco use kills 5.4 million people a year - an average of
one person every six seconds - and accounts for one in
10 adult deaths worldwide. The World Heart Federation
and its member organizations are intensively involved in
advocating for tobacco control and, notably, the ratification
and implementation at the national level of the Framework
Convention on Tobacco Control, which has been signed by
168 countries and entered into force in 2005. 153 countries
have ratified the FCTC and thus become Parties. Our specific
focus includes active involvement in the Global Smokefree
Partnership and the development of a Youth Advocacy
Network in Latin America. The World Heart Federation also
focuses on the current overweight/obesity epidemic. It
is playing a lead role in campaigning for the need to protect
public health against the hazards associated with unhealthy
nutrition habits and physical inactivity.
In partnership with the World Economic Forum and the
World Health Organization, the World Heart Federation is
also leading the movement to improve employee health
through working toward wellness in the workplace.
DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS
The World Heart Federation aims to measurably impact
cardiovascular disease risk, using resource-appropriate
demonstration projects implemented at both population
and high-risk individual levels.
Demonstration projects are a part of the World Heart
Federation’s efforts to achieve measurable impact on
cardiovascular disease risk levels in low-income countries.
Projects are specifically geared towards demonstrating best
practice in areas of cardiovascular disease prevention and
control and span several continents. For example, the World
Heart Federation is leading the field of secondary prevention
for children with rheumatic fever/rheumatic heart disease in
Africa and the Asia-Pacific region. A partnership with Sesame
Workshop in Colombia is working to instill healthy habits
in young viewers and their families. The Grenada Heart
Project, implemented in collaboration with the Government
of Grenada, uses the World Health Organization STEPwise
approach to surveillance of CVD risk factors in order to help
communities to tailor prevention programmes to their needs.

sharing science/building capacity
World Congresses of Cardiology are held every two years
during which thousands of cardiologists and other healthcare
professionals from all over the world gather to share the
latest science on the treatment of patients and the latest
thinking in population-based prevention.
World Heart Federation Scientific Councils, composed
of experts from around the world, carry out international
training seminars, research and demonstration projects.
Through its Twin Centres programme, the organization
sponsors fellowships for young cardiologists and scientists
from less advantaged countries to undergo postgraduate
training in world-class cardiology centres.
CVD Prevention and Control is a quarterly journal of
the World Heart Federation, which focuses especially
on cardiovascular disease prevention in low- and middleincome countries. Nature Clinical Practice Cardiovascular
Medicine is a monthly publication of the World Heart
Federation, which provides physicians with the latest
science of patient care. Further information on the World
Heart Federation Journals can be found on page 16.

As the official journal of the World Heart Federation, CVD
Prevention and Control (formerly “Prevention and Control”,
now re-launched under a new title) continues to provide
a forum for dialogue and education on matters relating to
the prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases
worldwide, with a special focus on countries with middle
and lower economies.
Now in its fourth year of publication, the response to this
new niche journal has been very encouraging. In line with
the mission of the World Heart Federation, CVD Prevention
and Control has become a priority journal for all who
wish to contribute to the advancement of knowledge
in cardiovascular diseases and to help halt the spread
of this epidemic worldwide.
CVD
Prevention
and
Control
CVD Prevention and Control
is organizing a Writers’
Workshop during the World Congress of Cardiology 2008 in
Buenos Aires, Argentina. This half day workshop is primarily
intended for those from developing countries who want
to publish in scientific journals. Participants will receive
information on how to organize and write a manuscript for
publication as well as information on how manuscripts are
processed through the Elsevier Electronic system. The aim
and scope of the journal will be discussed and a part of the
session will be focused on interactions with a successful
writer. This workshop is being held on Monday, May 19,
2008 from 9.30 –12.30. The number of participants is
limited to 40.
On Monday, 19 May at 13.30, Andy Wielgosz, the Editorin-Chief of CVD Prevention and Control will be holding a

The Argentine Society of Cardiology (SAC)
General information
The Argentine Society of Cardiology (SAC), founded in
1937, is a member of the World Heart Federation, the
Interamerican Society of Cardiology, the South American
Society of Cardiology and is affiliated to the European Society
of Cardiology. It is one of the world's oldest cardiology
societies. Its members include many prestigious historical
figures internationally recognized for their contributions
to science, such as the Nobel Prize winner Dr. Bernardo
Houssay and Drs Eduardo Braun Menéndez, Pedro Cossio,
Alberto Taquini, Mauricio Rosenbaum and Rene Favaloro.
Over its 70-year history, it has been responsible for a rich
history of scientific achievements – both educational and
within the community. Each year, the Argentine Society of
Cardiology organizes the Argentine Congress of Cardiology.
10,500 participants attended the 34th meeting in October
2007, including some of the most important international
figures in the world of cardiology. In 1974 the SAC jointly
hosted the 7th World Congress of Cardiology and in 1999
the 17th International Congress of Cardiology – setting the
scene for the partnership this May, once again playing an
active role in the World Congress of Cardiology.
The Argentine Society of Cardiology has more than 6,500
members in various categories including doctors, nurses and
technicians. It has 36 Regional Districts spread over the entire
national territory and 17 scientific councils representing all
the subspecialties of cardiology. It conducts continuous
and intensive teaching with courses in all subspecialties,
grants the certification of “University of Cardiology“
with various universities and conducts a programme
of recertification training.
Other important areas of its role include research, with
epidemiological surveys, clinical research studies and
the Consensus which sets standards for diagnosis and
treatment of major cardiovascular diseases. The society
acts as advisor to both legislative chambers of the national
parliament and also established a community programme
for the general population, the Argentine Foundation
of Cardiology, to educate and prevent cardiovascular
disease as well as running and dictating courses on
cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The journal was created in 1934, and as of 1937, when
the Argentine Society of Cardiology was founded, it became
its official publication.
Argentine Society of Cardiology Projects
Medical continuous education and investigation are the
chief advocacies of the Argentine Society of Cardiology.
Current projects include: the organization of the next
Argentine Congress of Cardiology and Meeting of the
Regional Districts in 2009, the interactive programme for
continuous training, PROSAC, and the promotion of clinical
investigation, teaching and counselling on different aspects
of methodology and biostatistics, among others.
For more information about the Argentine Society
of Cardiology, please visit www.sac.org.ar
Many original scientific papers from different specialities,
editorials, clinical cases, review articles, controversies,
articles of opinion and images in cardiology are published
in the Journal. There is also a section devoted to letters
from the readers.
In the RAC´s web page (www.revista.sac.org.ar ) all editions
from 1993 onwards can be found, with all articles available at
full free access. It includes English versions of original papers
and the English version of the whole Journal will be available
soon. It is indexed in SciELO, LILACS, Latindex and DOAJ.
The Argentine Federation of Cardiology (FAC)
The Argentine Federation of Cardiology (FAC) is a scientific
institution comprised of 37 cardiology organizations and
11 delegations from the Republic of Argentina and currently
reaches more than 6’000 members. Its mission is to
promote the harmonious and integrated development of
Argentine cardiology to promote cardiovascular health.
The FAC was founded in 1965 by a group of prominent
cardiologists from the following Argentine northeast
provinces representing the six cardiology organizations
existing at the time: Córdoba, Rosario, Mendoza, San
Juan, Tucumán and La Plata. A Society of Societies was
formed, structured as a federation, in which every federate
society kept their autonomy and independence, with equal
representation and decision among the Federal National
Council, its leadership body.
Its first president and "alma mater" was Prof, Dr, Ricardo
Podio from Cordoba, who was then succeeded by members
of the Society of Cardiology from Rosario, Mendoza,
Córdoba, La Plata, Tucumán, Salta, Buenos Aires and
Neuquén. In over 40 years, the organization has carried out
intensive work to accomplish its goals in the development
and progress of cardiology throughout the country. Since
its foundation, many prestigious scientists such as Dr. René
Favaloro and others, have joined FAC, thus contributing
to its mission.
In this field, FAC has signed several arrangements
with different universities and ministers of health across
the country, in order to develop a proper process of
specialty certification.
Annually, FAC organizes the National Cardiology Congress
in different provinces, through a predefined rotation system,
and the mentioned congress has become one of the most
important cardiology events. The next FAC Congress will
take place in May 2009, and the usual attendance is about
to 7’000 cardiologists, technicians and nurses.
Its Center for Teleinformática (CETIFAC) was established in
1995 to develop communication between different federate
societies, as well as with several cardiologic centers from
abroad. Its achievements include the 5th Congress of Virtual
Cardiology, a pioneer activity on the Internet. It also works
closely with the CARDIO Foundation dealing with subjects
related to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and
health education in the community.
Recognized in several worldwide scientific fora, with many
of its members participating in international scientific
meetings, FAC continues working in pursuit of a range
of goals and always under the ideals set by its founders.
For more information about the Argentine Federation
of Cardiology, please visit www.fac.org.ar
Currently FAC has a total of 22 scientific committees with
subspecialties devoted to research and scientific output.
It publishes a hierarchical Scientific Magazine, in which
prestigious national and foreign authors contribute. Through
its educational programmes, it develops regular activity
focusing on immediate postgraduate education.

Programme Overview
Acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) is associated with
prolonged in-hospital lengths of stay, high rates of hospital
readmission, and substantial rates of inpatient and outpatient
morbidity and mortality. In Latin American countries, the incidence of
heart failure is rising, and ADHF has not been as well characterized as
chronic heart failure. An awareness of unmet needs in ADHF
management is therefore useful to improve the process of care in this
patient population. Goals of therapy for ADHF include relieving
symptoms, reversing acute hemodynamic abnormalities, initiating
evidence-based therapy, reducing length of stay, and preventing
rehospitalization. Treatment recommendations are generally based on
the patient’s fluid volume status and cardiac output. It is therefore
critical for cardiologists to be aware of when to use various intravenous
therapies for improving hemodynamics and acute heart failure signs
and symptoms. One such agent is the vasodilator nesiritide, a purified
preparation of human B-type natriuretic peptide (hBNP), which
reduces pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and improves dyspnea in
patients with ADHF who have dyspnea at rest or with minimal activity.
This program will help Latin American cardiologists understand the
challenges in managing ADHF and effective therapeutic strategies for
treating patients with different hemodynamic and clinical profiles. In
addition, faculty members will describe and demonstrate through case
presentation the appropriate use of nesiritide in patients with ADHF.

Session rooms
To highlight the international nature of the World Congress
of Cardiology all session rooms have been named after
rivers. Session rooms are shown on the WCC 2008 Floor
Plan on the inside front cover. Please note that seating in
the session rooms is on a first-come, first-served basis.
We recommend therefore that you go to the session room
well before your session begins. Due to safety policies of
La Rural, the access to the session rooms will be denied
once the room is filled to its maximum capacity.
Language
English is the official language of the congress. However,
a track line presented during the South American Congress
of Cardiology will be held in Spanish. Simultaneous
translation (English-Spanish and Spanish-English) will,
however, be provided in the following rooms: Main
Auditorium “Rio de la Plata”, Danube and Thames.
Tobacco Free Policy
Tobacco smoking is a major cause of preventable early death
throughout the world. Cigarette smokers have almost double
the risk of dying from coronary heart disease compared with
non-smokers. Exposure of non-smokers to environmental
tobacco smoke is increasingly suspected as being a cause
of coronary heart disease.
The World Heart Federation aims to promote the reduction in
the prevalence of smoking globally. Workplaces, community,
health care, educational institutions, food industry, health
professionals and governments are important settings for
implementing this policy.
All premises occupied by the World Heart Federation,
including those that are used temporarily by the World
Heart Federation, shall be smoke-free.
The WCC Congress Committees thank all participants and
exhibitors for not smoking in the Congress Centre “La Rural”
and its immediate surroundings at all times.
Disclaimer
The Congress organizers will accept no liability for personal
injuries sustained by, or for loss or damage to property
belonging to Congress participants, or other unforeseen
circumstances either during or as a result of the Congress or
during all tours and activities. It is therefore recommended
that participants, as well as companies, arrange their own
personal health, accident and travel insurance property loss,
damage insurance or any other necessary insurance. ICS
Congresos Internacionales S.A. and Bounty Travel Service
act as agents and cannot be held responsible for any loss,
injury or damage to any person or property whatever the
cause may be. The liability of persons and companies
providing means of transportation or other services,
however, remains unaffected.

Scientific Programme
Formats
Over 250 sessions will be presented in the following formats:
Symposia (SYMP) include a maximum of five presentations
on the latest developments in fields such as basic science,
clinical cardiology and epidemiology.
Debates (DEB) provide a discussion on controversial issues
with two statements that will be debated, each with a pro
and contra presentation followed by a discussion at the end
of each statement.
Clinical Seminars (CS) will highlight various specific
subspecialty topics. The sessions do not target exclusively
specialists but also a general audience.
The South American Congress of Cardiology (SACC)
will be held in conjunction with the World Congress of
Cardiology and presented in a series of eleven sessions in
Spanish. (Session rooms: Amazon, Tigris).
Special Featured Joint Sessions (SP) are held by
cardiology societies and organizations.
How-to & Workshop Sessions (HTS) will give the
opportunity to interact between a limited audience and
experts in various fields of clinical cardiology.
Continuing Medical Education (CME)
The World Congress of Cardiology is
accredited by the European Board for
Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for
18 hours of External CME credits.
Each participant should claim only
those hours of credit that have actually
been spent in the educational activity.
One credit may be claimed for each hour of participation in
WCC scientific sessions.
EBAC works according to the quality standards of the
European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical
Education (EACCME), which is an institution of the European
Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
In compliance with the EBAC guidelines, all speakers
and chair persons who are participating in this scientific
programme have disclosed or indicated potential conflicts of
interest which might case a bias in the presentations.
The Organizers are responsible for ensuring that all potential
conflicts of interest relevant to the congress are declared to
the audience prior to the CME activities.
The American Medical Association (AMA) has an
agreement of mutual recognition of continuing medical
education (CME) credit with the European Union of Medical
Specialties (UEMS). Under the terms of this agreement,
the AMA will convert CME credit certified by the European
Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education
(EACCME), the accrediting arm of the UEMS, to AMA PRA
Category 1 Credit™.
How do I receive credits?
Credits can be received after the congress via our online
system. Please make sure to keep a record of the session
titles / numbers and save your registration confirmation
number and/or access code. After completing the EBAC
evaluation you will be taken to the website to input your
information for EBAC CME credits. The site is accessible via
a direct link you will be provided within due course.
ATTENTION: It will take approximately 6-8 weeks to process
your enquiry and before you receive confirmation of your
accreditation. Please note that no certificates will be given
on-site.
