Sophia Antipolis, 17 May 2024: This summer, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) will host the world’s largest cardiovascular congress in London. ESC Congress 2024 is where international cardiology experts convene to transform patient care and advance the field through cutting-edge research, pioneering technologies and collaborative initiatives.

Twelve Hot Line sessions will unveil the latest findings from major clinical trials, conducted to provide new and improved treatments for a range of cardiovascular diseases. Several Late-Breaking Science sessions will discuss insightful new results from important registries and basic science studies. In addition, novel findings will be revealed in more than 4,000 scientific abstracts presented by international cardiovascular healthcare professionals.

2024 marks the 30th anniversary of ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines, influential documents that are created by world-leading experts who collate the latest research to guide clinical practice across Europe and beyond. Four major ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines will be unveiled in London, and in dedicated sessions, participants will be able to discuss the new recommendations with the authors.

New ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines for 2024:
Elevated blood pressure and hypertension
Chronic coronary syndromes
Peripheral arterial and aortic diseases
Atrial fibrillation
Patient version of ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines for atrial fibrillation

The Spotlight of this year’s ESC Congress is ‘personalising cardiovascular care,’ which focuses on improving patient outcomes by moving away from the one-size-fits-all approach towards individualised treatment at all stages of disease development including risk prediction, preventative measures and precision treatments.

The patients voices will resound through a new track of sessions designed to ensure that their perspective is always at the forefront. In addition, another new series of sessions – the obesity track – will help participants delve deeper into one of today’s more important problems related to improving cardiovascular health.

Also new in 2024 are ‘The floor is yours’ sessions where participants can bring their questions on a range of topical issues to an open forum to stimulate shared understanding. Subjects include the risks of vaping and the regulation of medical devices.

And again this year, the Digital Health Stage will provide a platform for discussions related to the technological transformation of healthcare and implications for daily practice today and in the near future, for example, the use of artificial intelligence to optimise healthcare delivery and how innovative technology could be used to personalise heart-healthy lifestyles.

ESC Congress 2024 is not only designed for cardiologists − a special programme is dedicated to bringing the latest clinical practice updates across the spectrum of cardiology to general practitioners, nurses and allied health professionals. A complementary Clinical Implementation track focuses on the practical application of new evidence to ensure the latest findings are quickly and widely translated into clinical benefits for patients.

Cardiovascular disease is the world’s leading cause of death. By bringing the cardiology community together to discuss the latest research, ESC Congress 2024 aims to advance the field and to alleviate the impact of cardiovascular diseases now and in years to come.

For well over a decade, in my capacity as a researcher, broadcaster, and producer, I have relied heavily on Alphagalileo.
All of my work trips have been planned around stories that I've found on this site.
The under embargo section allows us to plan ahead and the news releases enable us to find key experts.
Going through the tailored daily updates is the best way to start the day. It's such a critical service for me and many of my colleagues.
Koula Bouloukos, Senior manager, Editorial & Production Underknown
We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.
