AHC 2011

AHC 2011
January 3–6, 2011
Cairo, Egypt
AHC 2011: The second meeting of the AHC Science and Practice Series. The three day meeting represents an in-depth comprehensive analysis of issues relating to diagnosis, classification, genetic evaluation, risk stratification and importantly, modern management of different forms of cardiomyopathies.
