The 34th Uruguayan Congress of Cardiology, celebrated last year in Montevideo from December 2nd to 4th, again stood out for the excellent presentations of the most relevant topics in the field of cardiology, as well as for its renowned national and international guests. Accompanying the great level of the Congress, 32 articles that covered different topics in the cardiological area were presented, of which we will comment four awarded:

Meta-analysis of current evidence. - Use of NT-ProBNP as a predictor of evolution in the postoperative period of cardiac surgery. - Prevalence of septal pouch in a cohort derived for transesophageal echocardiography. - Incidence of ultrasensitive troponin T in abnormal range and its correlation with coronary anatomy in patients in assessment for stable coronary disease.

Keywords : Prosthetic-thrombosis; NT-ProBNP; Septal pouch; Ultrasensitive-troponin-T.
