Abstract


Having visited several European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congresses, this time the plan was to explore famous American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual Congress. For a long time American way of making science dominated over not only Europe but the rest of the world. Is it still holds true? Probably the answer is not simple, nevertheless, the glimpse of true American perspective can be tasted in real only on the American soil. The 65th ACC Congress was taken place between 2nd till 4th April in Chicago, Illinois at the gargantuan McCormick Convection Centre located just at the bank of magnificent Michigan lake. The first striking difference was the weather! When in Poland and rest of Europe, the spring was in full swing, the north-west part of the USA was griped in the frosty cold with an average temperature of minus five. Not to mention the icy winds for which Chicago is famous and called the windy-city. This is not an exaggeration, please do believe me! But now a little about the Congress itself.
