2019 ISHLT (International Society of Heart Lung Transplantation) 39th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions


ISHLT’s annual meetings offer the most comprehensive review of research, including late-breaking advances, dedicated to advanced heart and lung disease, transplantation, mechanical support and related innovative therapies. From the Opening Plenary through the Symposia and Oral Abstract Sessions to the Presidential Address, ISHLT2019 offers considerable opportunity to focus on content in your specialty area. We’ve taken special care to cluster content by specialty in order to make the best use of your time as a participant and ensure you return home equipped with increased knowledge.

You’ll also find that ISHLT2019 offers a unique opportunity to network with a wide range of medical professionals from across the globe. Attendees regularly cite the opportunity to meet peers from other institutions, specialties and countries as one of the meeting’s highlights.

The plenary sessions will feature traditional content such as registry reports, the Presidential Address, and the Lifetime Achievement Award Address. In addition, research from the highest scoring abstracts will be selected for featured presentation to ensure the largest audience for our Annual Meeting’s best scientific content. For our Friday plenary session, our highlighted speakers will motivate us to apply novel concepts to improve clinical care and research efforts. The final plenary session again promises to entertain and inform with the President’s Debate.
