European Society of Cardiology Congress 2012

Walter Alexander

This year’s premier European Society of Cardiology (ESC) conference in Munich, Germany, from August 25 to 29, welcomed nearly 28,000 participants from 140 countries. Key sessions on antiplatelet therapies, renal denervation (a non-drug therapy that is being adopted rapidly in Europe), contrast-induced nephropathy, “e-cigarettes,” and an online resource on treatment-resistant hypertension are discussed.
