Dear colleagues!

We are very happy to announce the 9th Innsbruck Winter Symposium for Coagulation! The main focus of this symposium is “Shock”. To provide the latest news in this hot topic, we are very proud to compile a programme with outstanding international key opinion leaders who are going to present current research results and personal experiences to you. A major goal of the Congress is to facilitate basic understanding and focus on new aspects and recent findings in the field of massive bleeding, volume replacement and coagulation.

As of high clinical relevance, the appropriate use of crystalloids, colloids, blood products and clotting factor concentrates in massive bleeding will be critically evaluated. Further on we want to focus on inflammation and infection as well as on anticoagulation in the criticall ill patient.

We are very happy to welcome you to the 9th Innsbruck Winter Symposium for Coagulation!

On behalf of the organizing committee,
Dietmar Fries, Petra Innerhofer and
Corinna Velik-Salchner!
