We are proud to launch the first Saudi cardiac interventional meeting this year.

This meeting is organized by Saudi Arabian Cardiac Interventional (SACIS), and supported by Saudi Heart Association (SHA) and in collaboration with Society of Cardiac Angiography and Intervention (SCAI).

We called this meeting a "forum" to be interactive as much as possible. Our philosophy is to produce a state-of-the-art assembly of all interventional cardiologists in Saudi Arabia with hands on experience joined by world expert in the field of interventional cardiology in live cases transmitted via satellite.

The First SACIS Forum will be held in Dammam from Thursday April 10, 2014 to Sunday April 13, 2014 at Sheraton Hotel Dammam. This forum aims to complement our annual Saudi Heart Association conference but with more focus on interventional cardiology.

For the first time in the Middle East, SACIS is hosting the First SCAI Arabia Interventional Fellow’s Course on April 10-11, 2014.

The meeting on April 12-13, 2014 will cover all aspects of coronary, structural and peripheral intervention techniques. There will be live
transmission and live in a box cases.

The meeting well be preceded by 4 workshops focusing on physiological assessments in the cath lab (FFR, iFR), circulatory support during high risk procedures in the cath lab, imaging in the cath lab (OCT) and hemodynamic and transseptal techniques. There will also be a full session for cardiac nurses and a full session for cardiac cath lab technicians societies.This year the forum will be joined by the SCAI (SCAI Quality Symposium).

I trust this forum will be fruitful with your participation and interaction.

Welcome at SACIS Forum 2014.
