Symposium - New York, United States
Myocardial infarction (MI) is a leading cause of death worldwide. 20 million people die from cardiovascular disease each year and patients that survive are at high risk of a recurrent MI and heart failure. Although there are treatments to mitigate the initial cardiac damage during an acute myocardial infarction, there is a need for novel treatments to minimize subsequent cardiac remodeling that can adversely affect heart function. In this context, identifying new targets to improve tissue repair—including preservation of the cardiac microvasculature, clearance of apoptotic cells and tissue regeneration- might become of great interest to improve cardiac remodeling and function after MI. This symposium brings together leading experts in the field to discuss the best strategy to prevent microvascular damage and improve tissue regeneration after MI.
