2017 Annual Meeting and TAS Recap

On April 21–26, SCA welcomed cardiovascular and thoracic anesthesiologists from around the world to our Annual Meeting & Workshops and Thoracic Anesthesia Symposium (TAS) in Orlando, FL. This year’s program comprised world-renowned experts discussing topical and practice-changing content via large, didactic lectures and small, hands-on settings.

More than 1,000 attendees joined us in Orlando for the premier educational event in cardiovascular and thoracic anesthesia.

More than 30 exhibitors displayed their products and services in the exhibit hall.

Dr. Michael Mack presented the Keynote Lecture, discussing “Innovations in the Treatment of Structural Heart Disease: Impact on Cardiac Surgery and Anesthesiology.”

Standing-room-only educational sessions covered topics ranging from Transfusion Management in Cardiac Surgery to Big Data and Quality.

Problem-based learning discussions offered attendees dedicated small-group time with faculty.

SCA thanks all attendees of the 39th Annual Meeting and Workshops and 6th Annual Thoracic Anesthesia Symposium!
