Vienna will be the beautiful stage set for the 31st annual meeting of the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, from 7 to 11 October. 

During this event, NeoChord will offer cardiac surgeons - amongst others - the opportunity to develop their skills by performing a mitral valve repair procedure on a real beating heart: the Cardiac Biosimulator Platform [link] developed by LifeTec Group. The platform will be facilitated at the Austria Center Vienna by LifeTec Group’s Sjoerd van Tuijl and Elke van Soest.
