Dear Colleagues,

The preliminary program of the upcoming 9th annual international “Latest Techniques in Cardiac Surgery” meeting in Leipzig, Germany is now available.
As in previous years, the meeting will be a mixture of lectures and live operations designed to optimize the learning experience of attending cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, trainees, and industry members. With the help of recognized international leaders such as yourself, we hope to provide a unique educational experience that is at the forefront of our discipline. The newest cardiovascular techniques and procedures will be the focus of presentations, videos, and live operations, along with expert commentary throughout. In addition, we have planned an entertaining social program that promises to be as engaging as the scientific content.
We sincerely hope to see you in Leipzig on December 3-5, 2015. Your participation will make this a meeting to remember.

Yours sincerely,

Friedrich W. Mohr, Leipzig, Germany
