The fifth edition of the Gulf Intervention Society (GIS) is set to be held from 16th to 18th November at Intercontinental Festival City Hotel, Dubai.
The leading GGC conference brings together senior interventional cardiology specialists and a number of cardiology and interventional surgery specialists from the region and globe to research the future treatments and discuss the latest findings of science and research in this field, in order to enhance cooperation between regional and international bodies, in addition to adopting best practices in the field of interventional cardiac and vascular surgeries.
Dr. Fawaz Al Mutairi, President of the Gulf Intervention Society and Cardiologist King Abdulaziz Cardiac Center National Guard Hospital, Riyadh, said,
" At this event, live cases will be presented to discuss how to address the challenges of birth defects, in addition to the most prominent challenges of clinical trials that were presented at international and regional conferences and are presented by a large group of cardiologists and interventionists in all the countries of the world.”
Prof. Fawaz added,
“In line with the GIS's steadfast commitment to staying at the forefront of medical advancements, the conference will delve into the transformative power of digital technologies in healthcare development, with a particular focus on cardiac catheterization. Experts will explore the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into this critical procedure, showcasing its potential to revolutionize disease detection, diagnostic accuracy, and interventional procedures. Participants will gain insights into the application of AI in CT imaging, its role in enhancing valve diagnosis, and the potential of automation, robotics, and remote control in interventional cardiology. Hands-on training sessions will provide attendees with practical experience in applying AI to coronary, interventional, and CT vascular imaging, as well as the utilization of augmented reality and virtual reality for organ function assessment using robots."
The GIS aims to lead the cardiovascular surgery community by providing guidance, and education, and sharing the latest research. Thus, GIS's responsibility is to promote the highest possible levels of education, research tools and community interactions, in addition to sharing social responsibility towards patients by healthcare professionals.
This year, the event will also witness more than 23 complex cases that will be discussed live, and 30 cases recorded over the 3 scientific days, in addition to 4 operations that will be broadcast live from: the National Heart Center in Royal Hospital, Muscat, Oman, Al Qassimi Hospital, Sharjah, UAE, King Abdulaziz Cardiac Center, National Guard Hospital, Riyadh, KSA, and Chest Diseases Hospital, Kuwait.
