Dear colleagues,


It is our pleasure to welcome you to St. Gallen on the occasion of the Joint Annual Meeting 2022 of the Swiss Society of Cardiology and the Swiss Society of Cardiac Surgery from 15-17 June 2022.


After months in which we were unable to meet on a large scale and in which we had to rely on digital meetings instead, we are particularly delighted to announce that we plan a physical congress again.


Together with the scientific committee we will prepare a programme that we trust catches the most exciting new developments in all areas of cardiology and cardiac surgery. As usual, the programme will offer main lectures, workshops, free communications selected from abstracts, as well as poster sessions.


We are very much looking forward to seeing you in St. Gallen!


Best regards


Prof. Dr. med. Gabriela Kuster Pfister                    Dr. med. Marjam Rüdiger-Stürchler
