Dear colleagues, friends and partners
On behalf of the organising committee, it is my pleasure to WELCOME you to the 16th MYLIVE 2019, to be held from 25th – 27th July 2019 in Sheraton Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. This is the Interventional Cardiovascular Society of Malaysia (ICSM) annual scientific conference with Live Transmission. In 2018 we had a successful meeting with more than 1000 delegates from the region and abroad to share the best practices and know-how for the betterment of cardiovascular care in this region.
The theme for MYLIVE 2019 is Translating Science Into Best Practice. In the field of cardiology we are fortunate to have many good randomised controlled studies and real world evidences to help us guide the best practice to our patients. In this era of digital technology where information is readily available and patient’s expectation is high, it is important to support our management with treatment that have a good level of evidence. In this two and half days of meeting we will have many sessions which includes case sharing, how to treat sessions and specific session on left main, bifurcation, chronic total occlusion, long and small vessels, calcified lesions, STEMI, structural and peripheral intervention. The aim is to integrate the current evidence and science into our daily practice.
The Local Live Transmission for MYLIVE 2019 will be held from University Malaya Medical Centre. We are also working on international LIVE transmission. It has become a significant educational event in the region for people in the related field and industries to meet and network, to share experiences, to discuss potential collaboration, research and new innovation. Many individuals have contributed to the success of MYLIVE. This year MYLIVE 2019 will be giving a Special Award during the opening ceremony to an individual who has contributed tremendously to our annual event over the years.
Other highlights in MYLIVE 2019 will be the Best of Malaysia case presentation, Asia Cardiovascular Complication (ACC) session, that consist a session on ‘Experts make mistakes too’ and a session on ‘great saves’. There will be how to treat sessions by the masters, symposium on emerging technologies, imaging and physiology. There will be many joint symposiums/teaching sessions with other interventional societies and a special symposium dedicated to cardiovascular technologist and nurses.
As in the past MYLIVE, there will be an exhibition area featuring the latest devices and technologies and imaging modalities. There will be hands-on sessions on the use of these devices and a training village.
We thank you for your strong support all these years and we look forward to your participation during this exciting MYLIVE 2019. Your presence will certainly add value to our meeting and is greatly appreciated.
SELAMAT DATANG to Kuala Lumpur.
