Letter from the Editor

Editor
Prof. Marc Bonaca, University of Colorado, USA
Conference
ACC 2022
Dear Readers,

Thank you for choosing our Medicom Conference Report of the 2022 American College of Cardiology Scientific Session that took place in Washington D.C. This year’s meeting was invigorating with a hybrid of in-person and remote attendees. The program was rich in innovative science, late-breaking studies, and engaging virtual content.

In the following pages you will find late-breaking science on optimal management of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery from POISE-3, new coronary plaque data for alirocumab, surprise outcome for sodium restriction in heart failure, exciting findings for Lp(a) reduction from APOLLO, and promising data on the safety of Factor XI inhibition in AF from the PACIFIC program.

We hope you find our peer-reviewed summaries informative, engaging, and balanced. Most of all, we wish you all a safe and healthy 2022 and hope that this year brings our scientific community even closer together.

Sincerely,

Marc
