Dear colleagues,

The Canadian Society of Clinical Perfusion and the Minimally Invasive Extracorporeal Circuit Technology International Society is excited to announce the organization of the 5th International MiECT Symposium in conjunction with the CSCP Spring meeting that will take place in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, June 16 to 19th, 2022. After cancelling our previous meetings due to COVID restrictions, we are glad to get back to an in-person-only meeting agenda.

This joint meeting will enhance our knowledge of minimally invasive extracorporeal technology technologies and practices in Canada while bridging initiatives of both our Societies. Abstracts for the conference will be published in the journal Perfusion, while the meeting itself will be recorded and distributed on CTSNet.

We have a packed agenda, as leading experts in the field of MiECT will give their views on using the technology. The results of the CoMICs Trial (the large, multicentre randomized controlled trial comparing minimal invasive (MiECC) to conventional extracorporeal circulation (CECC) will be presented for the first time. In addition, a special session on Sunday will focus on what we have learned about the effects of COVID from centers in Canada and abroad. We hope this Symposium will generate much discussion and excitement. Furthermore, representatives from the major companies involved in MiECT will be actively participating through their exhibits and sponsored sessions.

The ultimate goal of the meeting is to form a multidisciplinary forum of experts who will present, discuss and teach the best available evidence to the broader cardiac specialties team in an engaging atmosphere.

We invite you all to attend this Symposium at the beautiful Prince of Wales Hotel in Niagara-on-the Lake. Rooms and spaces are limited as we expect to sell out, so please register early to save disappointment.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Niagara-on-the-Lake and helping us make this meeting a huge success.
