The 3rd Annual International Hawaii Symposium on Diagnostic and Therapeutic Modalities in Heart Failure will be held December 5-7 at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel on the beautiful Island of Hawaii. The Symposium will offer a comprehensive and practical review of advances in heart failure and biomarkers. The agenda is built upon the highly successful Symposium in 2012 which integrated lectures, panel discussions and case presentations in an environment that was ideally suited for both learning and relaxation. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear leaders in heart failure and biomarkers discuss the newest important advances in their fields as well as provide practical guidance for optimizing patient care. There will be ample opportunity including a function for attendees, their families and the faculty to meet and talk with the faculty in an informal setting over the 3 days of the Symposium.
This year we will present an update on management of HF across its entire clinical spectrum from Stage A-D including focused lectures on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, pregnancy and decompensated heart failure. Advances in the use of biomarkers will be presented as well as discussions of novel biomarkers and new uses of existing ones. There will also be updates on use of devices to detect decompensation, management of hyponatremia, treatment of angina in the heart failure patient, optimal use of CRT and the role of mechanical circulatory support for advanced heart failure patients.
The outstanding faculty includes experts in the field including Drs. Uri Elkayam, Gregg Fonarow and Ulrika Birgersdotter-Green. We hope that you will be able to join us for what will most certainly be a memorable meeting.
