2019 ESC/ERS Congressses Travel Grant winners- meeting reports

The PVRI was pleased to award four educational Travel Grants, supported by GSK, to young PVD professionals from the UK to attend the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress, which was held in Paris, France from 31 August to 4 September 2019, and the ERS International Congress, held in Madrid, Spain, on 28 September to 2 October 2019. The PVRI grants included the registration fee to the Congress, all travel and accommodation expenses.

The winners were delighted to participate in these events, and reported the following:

Dr Hossam Fayed // Royal Free Hospital (London, UK)

Hossam-Fayed---Conference-photov3.jpg

'This year’s European Society of Cardiology Annual Congress was held in conjunction with the World Congress of Cardiology. This meant that in excess of 30,000 delegates from all over the globe have attended this year’s event making it arguably the biggest ever scientific meeting in the world of cardiology.

Over five days, there was a multitude of simultaneous sessions with different themes, which can make staying focused challenging. However, with good planning one can get unparalleled educational opportunities in such a compact time. Excellent organisation facilitated this with pre-designated themes that held in temporal and spatial proximity. 

Pulmonary hypertension is one of the few niches in the broad world of cardiology, but several designated sessions were very well attended. I was fortunate to get my abstract accepted among the very few selected for oral presentations. This was very well received and the feedback was outstanding and would be extremely useful in preparing the manuscript.

 The PVRI Travel Grant support in attending this year’s ESC was hugely welcomed and much appreciated.'

Nkemamaka Okonkwo // Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, UK

The ESC congress this year was one of the best in recent years with several key landmark trials being presented, namely DAPA-HF and COMPLETE study, with outstanding results that will ultimately impact the practice of cardiovascular medicine going forward. 

I was fortunate to be part of a study team headed by Dr Hossam Fayed & Dr Gerry Coghlan, the former of whom delivered an oral presentation of our work examining the validity of scleroderma-associated pulmonary arterial hypertension risk scoring systems and their survival long-term. The presentation was received well with valid lines of questioning that will invariably inform the upcoming written manuscript. 

From a pulmonary hypertension standpoint, there were certainly a lot of interesting talks and presentations with an emphasis on management and detection of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. The digital health area, a relatively new addition to the congress that is receiving great attention, also highlighted the emergence of modern technology in clinical practice.  I attended interesting presentations on gaming apps for pulmonary hypertension and use of wearable diagnostic technologies for arrhythmia and heart failure. There were also great hands-on sessions and practical tutorials on improving echocardiographic skills in assessing the right-sided chambers. In particular, I thoroughly enjoyed a session sponsored by Philipps called: “Right ventricle – the forgotten heart chamber? When and how should we analyse it?” which taught delegates how to employ 3D echo-based automatic right heart volumetry and strain packages to help clinicians monitor status of the right ventricle and right atrium respectively. 

I have to say many thanks to the PVRI for offering a wonderful opportunity to be amongst peers and colleagues from across the globe and ultimately gain new insights and knowledge on current practices in cardiovascular health worldwide.

Michael McGettrick // Golden Jubilee National Hospital (Scotland, UK)

Michael-McGettrick---ERS-Photo-v2.jpg

I am very grateful to the PVRI for the opportunity to attend and participate at the ERS Congress in Madrid in October 2019.

  The meeting, over five days, had a wide range of research presentations and was attended by over 20,000 delegates. This allowed me to network with colleagues from institutes around the world, and further my knowledge of general respiratory conditions, more specifically, pulmonary vascular disease. I attended the presentation of the 2019 guidelines for the investigation and management of pulmonary embolus, presented by Prof Konstantinides and Prof. Meyer. This is produced in collaboration with both the European Respiratory Society and European Society of Cardiology. Not only did this focus on the new guidance of investigating unstable patients, but also gave recommendations on how to investigate and manage pulmonary embolus in pregnancy. This is of particular importance given that venous thromboembolism is currently the leading cause of mortality in pregnancy. It is with prompt and appropriate investigation that early management can be instituted, which will hopefully lead to improvements in mortality rates. I will take these lessons to my local place of work and, in sharing these with colleagues, hope to improve the care of patients. 

I attended a particularly beneficial small group meeting one evening, where some of the abstracts from congress were presented and discussed.   Of particular interest was the presentation on a study by Dr Kim, from California, assessing the efficacy of Novel Oral Anticoagulants (NOAC) in chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. They demonstrated that there is an increased risk of recurrent thromboembolism in those using NOACs, compared to those using other anticoagulants. I am particularly interested in the diagnosis and management of chronic thromboembolic disease, with upcoming research in this area due to begin in the coming months. With NOACs now part of the acute pulmonary embolus guidelines, it is an important message that there should still be some caution in their use in chronic thromboembolic disease.  

I was fortunate enough to contribute at the Congress, with a late abstract accepted. I presented a thematic poster on the effect of exercise rehabilitation on cardiac function, measured by cardiac MRI, in patients with pre-capillary pulmonary hypertension. During this session, I was able to discuss the findings with colleagues from institutes in the UK, Europe and the USA. This was very useful to me, as the discussions stimulated further research ideas for our group. This has led me to reflect on the exact cause for the positive response to exercise has encouraged me to look further into this study to gain more definitive conclusions.

  My experience at the ERS congress has been overwhelmingly positive. The meeting was very well organized, and allowed me to update my knowledge and move my research ideas forward. Networking with colleagues will make forthcoming meetings more fruitful and potential for research collaborations in the future.

Geeshath Jayasekera // University Hospital, Monklands (Scotland, UK)

I am extremely grateful to the PVRI for providing me with an opportunity to attend the European Respiratory Congress 2019 in Madrid.  

I was fortunate to contribute to the congress, being a co-author in two abstracts, one of them being a poster discussion. The poster discussion was titled “Macitentan treatment improves the dysfunctional right ventricle in a sugen/hypoxic rat model of pulmonary hypertension”. During this session we discussed using cardiac MRI which is the gold standard in determining cardiac volumes and function in humans, in an experimental animal model of PH for determining treatment response to PH targeted therapy. Using cardiac MRI, we demonstrated that Macitentan improved CMR derived RV variables in this animal model. I was also a co-author in a late-breaking abstract presented as a thematic poster on the effect of exercise rehabilitation on cardiac function, measured by cardiac MRI, in patients with pre-capillary pulmonary hypertension.

The meeting also allowed to me to attend a wide range of research presentations both in pulmonary vascular diseases and in general respiratory medicine. I particularly enjoyed the State-of-the-Art session – pulmonary vascular diseases, in one of the talks during this session Dr Harm-Jan Bogaard discussed systemic consequences of pulmonary arterial hypertension. Also of interest was the evidence based discussion of using balloon pulmonary angioplasty in chronic thrombo-embolic PH delivered by Dr Irene Lang. 

ERS 2019 was very well organised and allowed me to update my knowledge in PH and in general respiratory medicine but also allowed me to network with colleagues from around the world which will form the basis for future research collaborations.  

I very much appreciate, and I am thankful to, the PVRI travel grant support which provided me with this wonderful opportunity.

'The PVRI is indebted to GSK for their continuing support, which allows us to support young clinicians to attend this event. Education is crucial in expanding knowledge of pulmonary vascular diseases, and our fight against this disease. We are delighted to be able to award these grants to these two young and dedicated PVD professionals. Congratulations to all.'

Travel suggestions from Moscow - Vnukovo Airport (VKO)

Explore russia’s capital city.

Moscow is a vibrant mix of old and new: Mother Russia meets Modern Russia. Visitors can enjoy cultural artefacts like the treasures found in the Armoury or the varied delights of the Kremlin Museums. High-brow, low-brow, any-brow will be raised in amazement at one of the performances at the world-renowned Bolshoi Theatre. The six-tier auditorium is the perfect place to take in an evening of dance and music. To really get in touch with the modern Russia, there is a thriving nightlife that has something for everyone. On a warm summer day a trip to the city’s green lung, Gorky Park, is truly essential.

Credit Card Swipe Fees Are Going Down. Are Points Going With Them?

A new agreement by Visa and Mastercard to reduce fees charged to merchants may drain the lucrative rewards that grant free travel to many credit card users.

A close-up photograph of someone inserting their Visa credit card into a credit card swiper.

By Elaine Glusac

Elaine Glusac is the Frugal Traveler columnist, focusing on budget-friendly tips and journeys.

On Tuesday, the largest credit card companies in the United States reached an agreement with merchants to reduce the so-called swipe fees retailers pay for accepting credit card payments, potentially saving the retailers $30 billion.

These fees also help fund the credit card rewards programs that many travelers redeem for things like free flights and hotel stays, leading points hawks to wonder: Are loyalty programs at risk?

Here’s what we know so far about the changes.

What are the terms of the deal?

Last year, credit card payments generated an estimated $72 billion in fees paid by merchants, which are generally passed along to customers in the form of higher prices. For nearly 20 years, merchants have been seeking reductions in the fees they pay Visa and Mastercard for handling transactions where the cards are used.

The proposed settlement , awaiting approval in a federal court, reduces and caps those fees for five years. It would also allow merchants to potentially charge consumers more based on the card they pay with. For example, a person paying with a premium card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve, which costs $550 a year, could be charged more than someone paying with the more basic Chase Sapphire Preferred card, with an annual fee of $95.

Why does it matter?

The majority of the fees collected go back to the banks that issue the credit cards. Those banks have used the funds to push premium credit cards that offer loyalty points, which can be redeemed for free travel and other perks. The cards with the biggest benefits tend to be those that charge higher swipe fees.

While the reduction in the fees collected sounds small — averaging at least .07 percent — they represent an estimated $30 billion over the five-year term of the deal, which banks could try to make up by reducing points perks.

“It’s reasonable to think that,” said Brian Kelly, the founder of the Points Guy , a news site devoted to maximizing credit card points.

While he speculated that banks will be able to “find other ways to make up the difference,” he acknowledged that a points squeeze could emerge.

“Opportunities to earn probably aren’t going to flourish,” he said.

The idea that merchants could charge more to the holders of premium, perks-rich cards, which are expensive, might also deter consumers from using them. Some experts question the viability of the practice given the potential for consumer backlash.

Is the new agreement related to the Credit Card Competition Act?

The legal actions that led to the new credit card agreement date back to 2005. But the newer Credit Card Competition Act , proposed in 2023, aims to introduce more competition in the credit card payment system. By creating a cheaper alternative pipeline for processing payments, the proposed legislation is seen as a greater threat to rewards programs.

Responding to the just-announced agreement between the credit card companies and retailers, Senator Dick Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, and the lead sponsor of the Credit Card Competition Act, released a statement urging the act’s passage.

“I fear that this deal only provides temporary concessions negotiated by a few lawyers behind closed doors,” he said in the statement.

Other experts said the agreement may ease the pressure on Congress to pass the act.

“I think it’s a way for Visa and Mastercard to show that they are making a good-faith effort to help out merchants by lowering the fees they’ve been complaining about for 20 years, and hopefully enough to let senators know they’re doing their part,” said Chris Hassan, the social media and brand manager for Upgraded Points , a website that tracks credit card benefits.

Separately, the proposed merger between Capital One and Discover, which is pending federal approval, could introduce more competition among credit cards and potentially improve rewards for holders of those cards.

What should I do now?

The points and payments systems won’t change until the agreement is approved, which is expected in late 2024 or early 2025, according to a news release from Mastercard.

But the topic should remind travelers of the reality of playing with points: The rules always change. Values tend to fall as redemption levels rise, which companies issuing these currencies are free to adjust at will.

If you have points, spend them, say experts like Sara Rathner, a travel and credit card specialist at the financial website NerdWallet . “They’re not a trophy to dust and admire.”

March 25 Moscow concert hall attack

By Antoinette Radford and Aditi Sangal , CNN

Here's what we know about the four suspects in the Moscow concert hall attack

From CNN’s Masha Angelova and Josh Pennington

Suspects in the shooting attack at the Crocus City Hall concert venue, from left: Saidakrami Rachabalizoda, Shamsidin Fariduni, Dalerdzhon Mirzoyev, and Muhammadsober Faizov.

Each of the four defendants charged with committing a terrorist act in the Crocus City concert hall attack was brought to court individually in Moscow on Sunday.

They are accused of committing a crime under part 3, provision “b” of article 205 of the Russian Criminal Code (terrorist act), which the Russian Criminal Code states is punishable with up to life imprisonment.

Three pled guilty to all charges, according to state media news agency TASS .

Here's what we know about the accused:

  • Dalerdzhon Mirzoyev: The 32-year-old was the first defendant brought to court. Mirzoyev, from Tajikistan, had a temporary registration for three months in the southern Russian city of Novosibirsk in Siberia, but it expired, according to RIA Novosti.
  • Saidakrami Rachabalizoda: He appeared as the second defendant, and told the the court that he had Russian registration documents but couldn't remember where they were. He communicated through an interpreter, according to state media RIA Novosti. Rachabalizoda was reportedly born in 1994.
  • Shamsidin Fariduni: He was born in 1998 in Tajikistan and is a citizen of the Central Asian country. Fariduni was officially employed at a factory in the Russian city of Podolsk and was registered in the city of Krasnogorsk, according to state media RIA Novosti.
  • Muhammadsober Faizov: The fourth defendant appeared nonresponsive in a wheelchair and was accompanied by a doctor to his court appearance, as seen in Moscow City Court’s video shared on Telegram. Faizov was temporarily unemployed, before which he worked in a barber shop in Ivanovo, a city northeast of Moscow, and is registered in that city, according to state media RIA Novosti. He was reportedly born in 2004.

Moscow court orders preventive detention for all four defendants in concert hall attack case

Saidakrami Murodali Rachabalizoda, a suspect in the shooting attack at the Crocus City Hall concert venue, is escorted following a court hearing at the Basmanny district court in Moscow, Russia, on March 24.

The Basmanny District Court of Moscow on Sunday granted the investigators’ motion for detention, as the chosen preventative measure, for all four defendants in the Crocus City Hall attack case.

All four men have been remanded into pre-trial detention until May 22, Moscow City Court said on Telegram. They are all charged with committing a terrorist act, according to the courts of general jurisdiction of the city of Moscow, which under the Russian Criminal Code is punishable up to life imprisonment.

Each of the four defendants was brought to court individually on Sunday. Three pled guilty to all charges, according to state media news agency TASS. 

The names of the four accused in the case are Dalerdzhon Mirzoyev, Saidakrami Rachabalizoda, Shamsidin Fariduni and Mukhammadsobir Faizov, Moscow City Courts announced via Telegram.

All four are from Tajikistan, a former Soviet republic, and have been in Russia on either temporary or expired visas. The court held closed hearings for each of the accused with no members of the public allowed, TASS reported, citing the court’s press service. 

France raises its terror alert to highest level in wake of Moscow attack  

From CNN’s Chris Liakos and Morayo Ogunbayo

France lifted its terror alert to its highest level on Sunday, after ISIS claimed responsibility for the concert hall attack in Moscow that killed at least 137 people on Friday. 

“Given the Islamic State's claim of responsibility for the attack and the threats weighing on our country, we have decided to raise the Vigipirate posture to its highest level: attack emergency,” French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal said in a post on X.  

France’s decision to raise the alert came after a meeting of its defense and national security council, according to Attal.  

On Monday, Attal said two attempted terror attacks on French soil had been foiled since January and 45 in total since 2017. He said thousands more soldiers were ready to boost its counter-terrorism force, should they be needed.

Speaking to reporters in Paris, Attal said that 4,000 soldiers were on standby to mobilize if necessary "in the event of an alert," in addition to the current 3,000 soldiers deployed across the country. Police presence in front of sites deemed sensitive such as schools would also be reinforced," he added.

CNN's Chris Liakos and Emmanuel Nicholas Miculita in Paris contributed to this report.

Analysis: Moscow attack is a blow to Putin, who promised Russia security

From CNN's Matthew Chance, CNN's Chief Global Affairs Correspondent, Moscow

Law enforcement officers are seen deployed outside the burning Crocus City Hall concert hall in Krasnogorsk, outside Moscow, on March 22.

Barely a week since Vladimir Putin secured his fifth presidential term, Russia has been plunged into carnage and disarray.

The attack  on the Crocus City Hall concert venue and shopping complex near Moscow, which has been claimed by ISIS, has left hundreds of people killed or injured.

This is hardly the stability and security for which so many Russians voted for President Putin. For years, the Kremlin strongman has been cast as a leader able to guarantee order in this vast, turbulent country. But Russia today seems more insecure and volatile than at any point in Putin’s 24 years in power.

The Kremlin’s brutal  war in Ukraine , now in its third horrific year, has cost Russians dearly. The military doesn’t publicize casualty figures, but US estimates suggest more than 300,000 Russians have been killed or injured.

The recent death of  Alexey Navalny , Russian most prominent opposition leader, has permanently silenced a vocal Kremlin critic. But the thousands who attended his funeral in Moscow, or who turned out to vote in a  Midday Against Putin  mass gathering at polling stations on the last day of the presidential election, indicate a base of discontent.

Now, the focus is firmly on the apparent reappearance in Russia of large-scale Jihadi terror attacks, unrelated to the Ukraine war or domestic opposition to the Kremlin. For a leader who has promised security and stability to Russians, a major attack on Russian soil is yet another powerful blow.

Read the full analysis.

Crocus City Hall killings are deadliest since Beslan school siege. Here are the recent attacks in Russia

From CNN Staff

The attack on Moscow's popular Crocus City Hall that left at least 133 dead has become the deadliest attack in Russia since the Beslan school siege in 2004.

Some other recent attacks include:

  • September 26, 2022 : Eleven children and four adults were killed when a gunman wearing Nazi symbols opened fire at a school in the western Russian city of Izhevsk. The shooter, who was reportedly wearing a black T-shirt with Nazi insignia and a helmet, died by suicide following the attack.
  • April 3, 2017 : At least 11 people were killed in a blast on the St. Petersburg metro. The explosion tore through a train as it was traveling between two stations in Russia’s second-largest city.
  • October 31, 2015 : A Russian passenger jet, Metrojet Flight 9268 crashed  on October 31 after departing from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh,  killing all 224 people  on board. US intelligence analysis suggested that ISIS or its affiliates  planted a bomb on the plane .
  • December 30, 2013 : A massive explosion at a train station in the Russian city of Volgograd killed at least 16 people, including one police officer, the Investigative Committee of Russia said.
  • January 25, 2011 : A suicide bomber attacked Domodedovo Airport , Moscow's busiest airport, killing 35 people and wounding about 100, authorities and state television said.
  • March 29, 2010 : Two explosions rocked the subway stations in central  Moscow during rush hour, killing at least 38 people and wounding more than 60 others, spawning widespread public outrage. A website associated with Chechen separatists, who have long fought for independence from Russia, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
