Despite the last terrorist attack tragedy at La Rambla in Barcelona, Catalonian cardiologic community had to quickly recover from the episode to host the major European cardiovascular event: the ESC CONGRESS 2017. From august 26th to 30th, more than 31.000 cardiologists from all over the world met to update their knowledge and share the state of the art science, innovation and cardiologic investigation in more than 500 sessions and more than 4.500 abstracts presentations. New guidelines for the management of acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, valvular heart disease, peripheral vascular disease and recommendations on dual antiplatelet therapy were presented. Fourty years of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), performed for the first time by Andreas Grüntzig on September 16th, 1977, was celebrated. We will expose a brief summary of some of the main scientific works presented at the congress which will undoubtedly have an impact on our daily clinical practice.
