ACC 2019 Late-breaking Presentations Announced

The opening late-breaking trial at ACC 2019 is the Apple Heart Study, a large-scale, app-based study to identify atrial fibrillation using a smartwatch. Earlier, smaller trials showed this approach might be used in a population health application to proactively identify AFib patients earlier.

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) released a list of the latest practice-changing presentations at the ACC.19 annual meeting March 16-18, 2019, in New Orleans. This includes five late-breaking clinical trial (LBCT) sessions and three featured clinical research sessions. There also are two LBCT deep-dive sessions where the experts will break down the hottest trials and attendees can find out what the impact might be on the practice of cardiology and patients.

ACC also announced the new ACC/AHA 2019 Guideline on the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease will be released at ACC.19. This guideline will focus on primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in adults and present recommendations to prevent CVD related to lifestyle factors as well as other factors affecting cardiovascular risk.
