The International ECOS-TCS Congress , organized by La Pitié-Salpêtrière Cardiology Institute of Paris, is now planned on February 4-5, 2021.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has spread worldwide, the International ECOS-TCS Congress can’t take place in June 2020, as initially planned. The ECOS-TCS Congress is now planned on February 4-5, 2021, in Paris, at the UICP convention center.

Registrations are open for 2021 and all finalized registrations for 2020 are automatically transferred to the February 2021 edition. If you have booked accommodation or transportation for 2020, don’t forget to cancel your bookings.
All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the 2021 ECOS-TCS abstract reviewing committee.

As you know, the 2020 edition should have opened a new window on all forms of ExtraCorporeal Organ Support(ECOS), encompassing cardiac, respiratory, kidney and liver support and blood purification techniques…

We will be pleased to welcome you to Paris in 2021 to discover more about the systems and platforms designed to support or replace organs compromised by sepsis, trauma, or specific cardiac, respiratory, kidney, or liver acute diseases.

Of course, many sessions will discuss the use of ECOS devices and outcomes of patients with the most severe forms of COVID-19.

A specific congress track will be dedicated to Temporary Circulatory Support (TCS) devices, that are increasingly used by interventional cardiologists and intensivists to treat cardiogenic shock due to acute myocardial infarction and end-stage cardiac failure.

The Congress will provide state-of-the-art discussions on the indications and results of extracorporeal gas exchange techniques (venovenous ECMO and ECCO2R) for acute respiratory failure.

Specific sessions will cover the latest evidence and practical management of patients with acute kidney injury in need of renal replacement therapy, acute liver failure, or pathologies requiring emergent blood purification techniques.

Cardiologists and particularly interventional cardiologists, heart and lung surgeons, pulmonologists, nephrologists, intensivists, hematologists, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, respiratory therapists, perfusionists, and nurses will have the unique opportunity to discuss with world key opinion leaders all theoretical and practicalmanagement aspects of these emerging and very promising technologies.

Hope to see you in Paris next February!
