BCIS History and Infrastructure

BCIS History and Infrastructure

From 1988 to today BCIS continues to evolve

The British Cardiovascular Intervention Society (BCIS) held its first meeting at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London in 1988 with the aim of establishing a regular meeting forum for those interested in interventional vascular procedures. At that time, coronary angioplasty was still in its relative infancy in the United Kingdom, with a national total of just over 5,000 procedures undertaken that year. Now circa 90,000 percutaneous coronary interventions are performed each year in the UK and many other procedures for valvular and other structural heart disease are firmly established.
