LATIN AMERICAN SOCIETY OF INTERVENTIONAL CARDIOLOGY
The Latin American Society of Interventional Cardiology (SOLACI) was created to advance and promote cardiovascular intervention in Latin America and the Caribbean. Since 1993, SOLACI has strived for excellence through several strategies that include education and training, research promotion, guidelines development, regular meetings, regional sessions, and constant exchange between members.
Today, SOLACI represents hemodynamics in 20 countries, has more than 2000 active members and strong alliances with the main interventional cardiology societies, both regional and international; among others, ESC (European Society of Cardiology), SCAI (Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions), ACC (American College of Cardiology), EAPCI ( European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions), CRF (Cardiovascular Research Foundation), and Sociedad Española de Cardiología (SEC).
SOLACI aims at the integration of the Latin American and the Caribbean countries, the promotion of education, and the growth of interventional cardiology, fostering professional cooperation among our experts, encouraging imagination and supporting the development of interventional cardiologists in our region.
We remain faithful to the history and ideals of our Society, in keeping with our strong ethical values of solidarity and integration..
