A meeting of Cardiac & Thoracic Surgeons, Anaesthetists and Perfusionists

3SCTS 2022

The inaugural Tri-Society Cardiac & Thoracic Symposium

16 - 19 November 2022
Cairns Convention Centre, QLD



On behalf of the organising committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the inaugural Tri-Society Cardiac & Thoracic Symposium (3SCTS) “Back to the Future: Lessons from the Past, Prospects for the Future”, which will be held at the Cairns Convention Centre, Queensland, Australia, from 16 - 19 November 2022. This will be a combined scientific meeting of three societies: the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac & Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS), the Cardiac Thoracic Vascular Perfusion Special Interest Group (CTVP SIG – ACE), and the Australian and New Zealand College of Perfusionists (ANZCP). In 2022 our Symposium will be held in conjunction with the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS) 2022 Workshop. Our patients present with increasingly complex problems that require fully integrated team care involving many disciplines, including surgeons, anaesthetists, and perfusionists. The need for scientific understanding to support our practice continues to grow and innovative procedural solutions are part of our daily work. This Symposium will aim to bring these specialty disciplines together to improve care of our patients in 2022 and beyond. Should you require any additional information in the meantime, please feel free to contact Symposium Organiser on +61 3 9249 1158 or via email
