What to expect at ESC 2023

This year the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2023 Congress is being held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands from August 25 – 28 both onsite and online. The international cardiology community will gather to learn about cutting edge science, new guidelines and important developments in cardiovascular research. Hereby we provide an overview of what to expect at the ESC Congress 2023.

There will be 30 hot line presentations presented over the 4 day congress. Topics range anywhere from HFpEF subgroups to OCT vs angiography or IVUS trials, as well as multivessel immediate versus staged revascularization in STEMI.

Hereby are the headlines of the 9 Hot Line sessions.

August 25th, Hot Line 1 Session:

STEP HFpEF: once-weekly semaglutide in people with HFpEF and obesity

NOAH-AFNET 6: Oral anticoagulation in patients with atrial high rate episodes

COP-AF – Colchicine for the prevention of perioperative atrial fibrillation after major thoracic surgery

August 26th, Hot Line 2 Session:

Qiliqiangxin in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction – the QUEST study

BUDAPEST CRT Upgrade: Cardiac resynchronisation therapy upgrade in heart failure with right ventricular pacing – a multicentre, randomised, controlled trial

Effects of FCM on recurrent HF hospitalizations: an individual participant data meta-analysis

August 26th, Hot Line 3 Session:

FIRE trial: Physiology-Guided Complete PCI in Older MI Patients

August 28th, Hot Line 8 Session:

RED-CVD: Improving early diagnosis of cardiovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes and COPD

NITRATE-CIN – Inorganic nitrate to prevent CIN after angiography for ACS

DICTATE-AHF: Early Dapagliflozin Initiation in Acute Heart Failure

What else can we expect at ESC Congress 2023?

Further to the state-of-the-art research being presented, we can expect some ESC guideline updates. This includes updates to the management of endocarditis, cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients, cardiomyopathies, acute coronary syndrome as well as a 2023 focused update of the 2021 ESC guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic heart failure.
