The 7th International Conference on Prehypertension, Hypertension, Metabolic Disorders and Cardiovascular Disease is organized by Paragon Group and will be held from Apr 02 - 05, 2020 at Vilnius, Lithuania. Who Should Attend: The Conference aims at experts from the fields of : • Atherosclerosis • Cardiology • Cardio Metabolic Syndrome • Clinical Trials • Diabetes • Diagnostics • Dyslipidemia • Endocrinology • Family Medicine • Gynecologists • Heart Failure • Hypertension • Imaging – Innovative & Routine Methods • Internal Medicine • Nephrology • Nutrition • Obesity • Pediatricians • Physical Activity Professionals • Vascular disease Course Description: The definition of borderline levels of blood pressure, plasma glucose and plasma lipids changed during the last decades. When clustering of these appears, it is not easy to decide about treatment- when it should be initiated and how will be the best way to protect the patient from complications and to prevent development of cardiovascular disease. In principle, therapeutic decisions were made by estimating the patient’s cardiovascular risk. The higher the risk the earlier treatment should be initiated. It has been shown that clustering of the components of the Cardiometabolic syndrome magnifies significantly the rate of progression of both atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis, leading to overt damage in the heart, brain, kidneys and other organs. Multiple factors affect the rate of progression of damage, among them- genetic factors, lifestyle, stress, smoking, alcohol intake and others. Interventions like change in life habits and medical treatment to correct all components of the Cardiometabolic syndrome – lowering blood pressure, plasma cholesterol, plasma glucose, treatment of obesity and cessation of smoking and of alcohol intake should be performed in each patient. Organ specific changes appear and lead to morbidity and mortality. Damage to the heart can include coronary artery disease, cardiac hypertrophy, diastolic dysfunction and leads to IHD, myocardial infarction, heart failure and death. In the brain changes in the large arteries like the carotid artery, supplying blood to the brain and the small arteries, can lead to cerebrovascular ischemia and infarction, which can be embolic or ischemic. The damage can lead to lacunar infarcts, ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, causing disability and death. In approaching this wide world problem, we should act to prevent the damage and when already present to stop its progression and even to induce damage regression. The research in the field needs new diagnostic methods in order to enable early diagnosis before symptom development and new therapeutic approaches, medical and instrumental. Understanding of yet unknown pathophysiologic aspects of disease development are also needed. The purpose of our meeting is to discuss in depth new mechanisms of cardiovascular damage development, novel methods of diagnosis and new therapeutic approaches. Topics: • Approach to the Elderly with Borderline Metabolic Conditions • Arterial Properties, Central Blood Pressure and Augmentation Index in the Continuum of Prehypertension and • Hypertension • Arterial Properties, Evaluation and Treatment in Borderline Conditions • Assessment of Global Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Borderline Conditions • Benefits of Achieving Optimal Risk Factors Level – When, How and with What? • Biomarkers of Borderline Conditions and Preclinical Disease • Borderline Cardiovascular Risk Factors - Morbidity and Mortality • Children and Adolescents and Cardiovascular Risk Factors- Diagnosis, Estimation of Risk and Treatment • Complications of Prehypertension, Hypertension and Cardiometabolic Syndrome: the Heart, the Brain, the • Kidney and the Extremities • Cumulative Effects of Multiple Borderline Cardiometabolic Risk Factors • Diabetes, Prevention, Mechanisms and Treatment of end Organ Damage • Humoral Factors in Prehypertension and Cardiometabolic Syndrome • Hypertension, Mechanisms and Therapeutic Approach • Management of Dyslipidemia, Mechanisms and Novel Therapeutic Regimens • Metabolic Syndrome and Borderline Metabolic Conditions • Natural History of Prehypertension, Hypertension and End Organ Damage • Obesity, Mechanisms and Therapy • Prediabetes – Mechanism, Diagnosis, and Management • Prehypertension and Metabolic Syndrome in Different Populations – Epidemiology • Prehypertension, Cause and Results • Prehypertension, Prediabetes and Dyslipidemia – Estimation of Risk and Therapeutic Approach • Prehypertension – Progression of Risk and Diagnosis of Disease • Prehypertension- Mechanism, Diagnosis and Management • Prevention and Regression of End Organ Damage in Prehypertension • The Heart, the Brain and the Kidney in Prehypertension and Cardiometabolic Syndrome • Total Cardiovascular Risk Evaluation and Management Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
Dear friends, we invite you to join us in the "3rd Baltic Colposcopy Conference" Dates: April 23 - 24, 2019 Venue: Park Inn By Radisson Kaunas, Kaunas, Lithuania Conference Organizers: • Lithuanian Association of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Section of Cervix Pathology and Colposcopy • European Federation of Colposcopy Target Audience: Conference is intended for obstetricians and gynaecologists, medical biologists, laboratory medicine doctors, family doctors and other specialities doctors, residents and students. Course Description: All three Baltic countries have one of the highest cervical cancer incidences in Europe. Recently there have been many developments in the field of cervical cancer prevention. We have effective vaccines, HPV tests, diagnostic devices etc. We have screening programmes that enable us to make further steps in diagnosis and treatment of cervical pathology and to reduce the risk of illness. Nevertheless, at some point colposcopy is a very important step in the pyramid and poor colposcopy may compromise all the prevention and screening tests done. Effective collaboration and regular focused meetings are a good opportunity to come together and discuss common problems, training guidelines and clinical performance quality standards. Lithuania still has challenges in performing and training the colposcopy. Training, algorithms, guidelines and evidence based medicine may help us in a shared interest in reducing the burden of avoidable disease. The exchange of the experience between specialists of the three Baltic countries and international experts in the field of cervical cancer prevention is an important step towards improvement of the colposcopy service in the Baltic region. Hope that Pre-Conference Basic Course on Colposcopy will help us to make one more step in improving the care of woman in cervical screening programs. At first day of Conference (23 April 2020) will be held Pre-Conference Basic Course on Colposcopy (number of participants is limited). Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
