Meeting Highlights

American Academy of Dermatology, Cardiovascular Research Technologies, American College of Cardiology, 2013

Walter Alexander

Key presentations are covered from three recent meetings: The American Academy of Dermatology (March 1–5, 2013, in Miami Beach, Florida), Cardiovascular Research Technologies (February 23–26, 2013, in Washington D.C.), and the American College of Cardiology (March 9–11, 2013, in San Francisco, California). Dermatology topics include psoriasis, hives, and infantile hemangiomas. For the latter two meetings, the focus is on newer anticoagulation agents used to treat acute coronary syndrome in cardiac catheter laboratories, where preventing ischemic events while controlling bleeding risk is a particular challenge.
