Palermo 8-9 September 2016


The Symposium will deal broadly with advances in cardiovascular biomechanics and their promise for clinical therapeutic strategies and future research.

There will be keynote presentations by expert clinicians followed by those of prominent scientists in the field of biomechanical engineering research.

In this symposium, advances in cardiovascular research will be explored as they pertain to the understanding of the function and structure in normal and disorders, including valvulopathy, cardiomyopathy, thoracic pathologies, endoprosthesis and medical devices.

The scientific organization of the symposium is guided by the Italian Chapter of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB-ITA) which encourage, foster and promote research in the science of biomechanics in Italy.
