Greatest achievements in the field of cardiology:

The great success in lowering cardiovascular mortality rates during the last decades of the 20th century are secondary to the extraordinary strides made in the understanding of basic cardiovascular science and in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. The 10 most important cardiologic developments and discoveries of the last century are electrocardiography; preventive cardiology and the Framingham Study; “lipid hypotheses” and atherosclerosis; coronary care units; echocardiography; thrombolytic therapy; cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography; open-heart surgery; automatic implantable cardiac defibrillators; and coronary angioplasty.

Why Dubai, UAE:

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) continues to be the leading cause of death and disability in the world today: over 17.3 million people die from cardiovascular disease every year.

Any disease of the heart, vascular disease of the brain, or disease of the blood vessel constitutes as a cardiovascular disease. The most prevalent cardiovascular diseases include coronary heart disease (e.g. heart attack) and cerebrovascular disease (e.g. stroke). Controlling key risk factors such as diet, physical activity, tobacco use, and blood pressure may reduce your risk for CVD.

The comfort of Dubai's luxury lifestyle can come at a price to your health. Poor diet and a lack of exercise mean diabetes and obesity rates are alarmingly high compared to global averages, while another looming threat is heart disease. In the UAE, 41 percent of under 30s suffer from high blood pressure (a risk factor for heart attack and stroke), compared to a global average of 25-30 percent, and it is anticipated the figure could rise to as high as 60 percent by 2025.

In 2013, 850 heart-attack patients were admitted to Rashid Hospital in Dubai. A troubling statistic in itself, the even more sobering news was the average age of the first-time heart attack patients. Whereas the global average is 65 years, the average age of the Rashid Hospital patients was 45 years. Additionally, of those 850 patients, "40 percent were diabetic, 40 percent were hypertensive and 25 percent had high levels of cholesterol."

In UAE, Diabetes is a major risk factor for heart attacks, because more than 20 per cent of UAE’s population is diabetic. Similarly, the percentage of people with obesity, hypertension, and high cholesterol is also very high in UAE.

Tobacco consumption is another significant cause for cardiovascular diseases in UAE, evidenced by the fact that more than 50% of the heart attack patients admitted in Rashid Hospital in 2013 were smokers.The high risk of heart disease in the region can also be attributed to a poor diet and the high consumption of fat and carbohydrates.

Some of the other factors causing CVD are

  • Being physically inactive
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Family history of heart disease
  • Ethnic background
  • Sex – men are more likely to develop CVD at an earlier age than women.
  • Age – the older you are, the more likely you are to develop CVD.

  • In 2008, heart disease caused almost 25% of deaths—almost one in every four—in the United States.
  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. More than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2008 were in men.
  • Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease. In 2008, 405,309 people died from coronary heart disease.
  • Every year about 785,000 Americans have a first coronary attack. Another 470,000 who have already had one or more coronary attacks have another attack.
  • In 2010, coronary heart disease alone was projected to cost the United States $108.9 billion. This total includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity.

Dear Colleagues & Scientists,

I have the privilege to welcome you to International Conference on Cardiology & Cardiovascular Diseases going to be held during July 10-12, 2017 in Flora Creek Hotel, Dubai, UAE to discuss this important aspect of Medicine which is the Prevention of CV diseases. This the cause of death in 50% of the population and a major cause of expenditure in the advanced countries of the western world.

The cause of CV diseases is multifactorial congenital, hereditary and acquired with two subgroups such as myocarditis which can be superimposed on cardiomyopathies or the result of environmental factors which is the cause of the most frequent consequence: myocardial infarction and stroke. The prevention of these CV diseases is basically simple but extremely difficult to control in practice because reduction of food intake and regular daily exercise are not easily accepted.

Being a French cardiologist I will address some interesting remarks stressing the value of wine and especially red wine to prevent CV diseases but also other diseases. It is known that alcohol is good for the heart whatever its presentation, beer, wine, cocktails and spirits. However, the red wine is the best because it contains tannin (which gives the colour of red wine). This tannin contains a molecule called "Resveratrol" which has interesting properties:

1. Heart for primary protection against myocardial events such as myocardial infarction
2. Prevention of Alzheimer disease
3. And also, more recently, its increase in neurogenesis

However, all the studies have demonstrated an increased risk of developing different types of cancer even for small drinkers.

Finally control food intake, exercise and moderate consumption of red wine rich in tannin looks a good compromise for primary prevention of cardiovascular events.

Hope to meet you at Cardiology 2017 conference in Dubai, UAE

Dear Colleagues & Scientists,

I have the privilege to welcome you to International Conference on Cardiology & Cardiovascular Diseases going to be held during July 10-12, 2017 in Flora Creek Hotel, Dubai, UAE to discuss about Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) represent the major causes of disability and premature death all over the world contributing to the escalating costs of health care sector. With CVD moving the phase of being predominantly acute diseases to be more chronic diseases and consequently having high proportion of senior population, one can expect that the number of years of any senior patients spent with heart diseases morbidity will increase. Also, there is demand to preserve a high quality of life for CVD patients.

The conference will consist of keynote speeches, invited lectures, technical sessions and workshop, all focusing on the scientific frontiers in the pharmacology and pharmacy of drugs.

The underlying pathology in CVD is atherosclerosis which begins early in life and progresses gradually through adolescence and early adulthood.The rate of progression of atherosclerosis is influenced by CV risk factors including tobacco use, an unhealthy diet and physical inactivity, hypertension, dyslipidaemia & diabetes. Not only this, but the probability of developing CVD increases exponentially with the aggregation of conventional risk factors.

A significant proportion of CVD morbidity and mortality can be prevented through reversing the epidemic of heart disease by adoption of an effective prevention program through either population-based strategies which address changes in lifestyle of everyone in the population or through screening of high risk patients where early detection of these "risky" individuals is of paramount importance to prevent progression of CVD and hence reduce the incidence of newly diagnosed cases.

It is our commitment in the conference to raise awareness on the importance of prevention programs amongst healthcare professionals with emphasis on proper diagnosis which should be timely and accurate, on providing treatment that is should be appropriate to each patient and on long-term management which should include follow-up, monitoring and support.

Hope to meet you at Cardiology 2017 conference in Dubai, UAE
