Main Topics

The main theme of our meeting has been determined as “Bridges over challenging waters in Pulmonary Vascular Diseases” by gaining inspiration from three bridges which bring the continents together. So, our meeting has focused on presenting bridges to intercontinental, interregional and interdisciplinary meetings in the areas of adult and pediatric cardiology, pulmonology, rheumatology, thoracic and cardiovascular surgery, intensive care specialty, pulmonary hypertension and cardiac insufficiency nursing.
