MiECTiS Reloaded!!!

Newsletter 1; February 2020

A message from MiECTiS
Executive Board MiECTiS
Kyriakos Anastasiadis

Dear MiECTiS members,

In the light of the new decade we have decided that we will reload our Society with initiatives that will enhance its role to one of the most rapidly emerging fields in Cardiac Surgery with great potential towards further improving clinical outcomes.

On this ground, we decided to support our website with the latest news and relevant information on MiECT, to promote with several ways CoMICS trial and to circulate a quarterly newsletter to our members. This will keep MiECTiS members updated regarding the events that our Society is organizing or participating as well as all other news. Moreover, we will keep up with the updates on CoMICS trial.

Therefore, I would request from all members of MIECTIS to start sending short reports of their relevant initiatives, literature review or news they believe are worth of being acknowledged by the Society.

I hope you will all warmly support our fledgling newsletter.

MiECTiS is set to strive for collaborations and affiliations with other related Scientific Societies aiming to co-organize Scientific Sessions and Symposia during Meetings. Moreover, it takes the initiative to promote specialist training in MiECC technology through collaboration with the industry.

We invite scientists who deal with MiECC technology to join the Society by applying for membership. Any individual who possesses the title of cardiac surgeon, cardiac anesthesiologist as well as clinical perfusionist and shows a proven interest in the field of minimal invasive extracorporeal technologies is eligible to apply for membership, which is complimentary and hence does not require any fees.
