Dear ISMCS (ISRBP) Member and Friends,
We have some very special things planned! This is the 25th year of our society, 24 years as ISRBP and now the first year as ISMCS. As such this is a celebratory quarter-century milestone for our group! Consistent with this, is the progress that the field has made. However, to move with strength into the next quarter-century we must address limitations and gaps that face us on a daily basis. This will be the crux of this meeting. To put a unique imprint on the meeting, rather than being a typical update of status session, we plan some bold steps to truly move forward on innovating to overcome limitations, using the meeting as a discussion mechanism and a thinking laboratory. The title of the meeting is
“Limitations, Controversies and Gaps in Mechanical Circulatory Support: Pathways to Solutions”
