Message From President
Dear Members, Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Hong Kong Society of Transcatheter Endocardiovascular Therapeutics (HKSTENT), I would like
to welcome you to visit our new website.
First of all, it is my great honour to contribute myself in HKSTENT, particularly after the undoubted leadership and footsteps of Dr. Michael K Y Lee, our Founding President. Established in 2010, HKSTENT is the first of its kind stand-alone interventional cardiology registered as charitable organization in Hong Kong. It was founded with the mission of promoting education, research and training in Interventional Cardiology in Hong Kong and Asia for the benefit of interventionists, cardiologists, allied health workers and the general public at large.
Over the past years, the society had organized many interventional cardiology conferences, live case demonstrations, and dedicated workshops both locally and aboard through collaboration with other international societies. Among these academic activities, our annual signature event, Cardiovascular Intervention Complication Forum ( CICF), was the first of its kind meeting in Asia with focus on the management of cardiovascular intervention complication . An increasing number of participants were drawn from the professional communities in Hong Kong, Asia Pacific regions and other countries to these international cardiac meetings.
In future, we will continue our endeavor in promoting the highest standard of care in cardiovascular medicine through scientific, professional and educational activities, and to enhance the awareness of heart health in the community .We are also working on several research projects, including left main, CTO registry, bifurcation trial, etc.
Perhaps the most important component in the success of any society is its members ! HKSTENT strives to increase value for our membership and create new incentives for your commitment to us. With our new website, it will enhance the communication with our members about news, messages, educational conferences, cases sharing and more. I hope to continue increase membership, especially among our new generations, and encourage those interested in becoming more involved in HKSTENT to take the next step. The future of our society relies on dedicated members who are passionate about Interventional cardiology to lead the field. Please come and join me on this journey. Let's continue to project a positive and professional image into the years to come. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at one of our many upcoming events!
Dr. Tam Li-wah
President, Hong Kong Society of Transcatheter Endocardiovascular Therapeutics (HKSTENT)
