BISMICS Competition Winner Jets off to ISMICS 2022

BISMICS Competition Winner Jets off to ISMICS 2022

Wednesday, 29 June 2022

Momna Raja was recently whisked off to ISMICS 2022 after she won the poster presentation competition at BISMICS 2021, an annual meeting organised by Millbrook Medical Conferences for cardiologists of all levels.

BISMICS 2021 (British & Irish Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery) took place from December 6-7, 2021, at The Tower Hotel, London.

BISMICS is a charitable organisation that aims to promote and protect the good health of patients requiring cardiac surgery via an annual meeting to develop and foster interest in minimally invasive cardiac surgery in the UK and Ireland for surgeons to share ideas on: 

  • Aortic valve disease (percutaneous, minimally invasive and endoscopic)
  • Endoscopic conduit harvest
  • Coronary artery disease interventions
  • Minimally invasive for mitral valve surgery
  • Mitral valve intervention – non-surgical options
  • Novel tricuspid and atrial fibrillation management
  • Robotic cardiac surgery

In the lead-up to BISMICS 2021, Millbrook Medical Conferences facilitated a competition, inviting delegates to submit abstracts/a poster presentation of their most interesting cardiothoracic minimally invasive surgery case.

Shortlisted candidates were given the opportunity to present their poster on the main stage, followed by audience questions and discussion. Members of the audience scored the poster presentations and after much deliberation, Momna Raja of Brighton and Sussex University Hospital was named as the winner during the conference dinner.

Momna's prize included a fully-funded trip to ISMICS 2022, an annual scientific meeting adeptly named and organised by the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery. ISMICS took place from June 16-18, 2022, in Warsaw, Poland.

Speaking of her win and ISMICS experience Momna Raja said:

I was honoured to receive the first prize at BISMICS for my poster presentation at the annual meeting in London 2021. The prize meant that I was able to attend the annual meeting for ISMICS in Warsaw.

This was an excellent opportunity for me to not only engage in meaningful discussions surrounding minimally invasive surgery but also network and receive career advice from academics and clinicians from across the world.

I am ever so grateful to BISMICS for supporting me to attend and present my research at an international meeting. Thank you!"

BISMICS will return to the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel, Manchester, from December 5-6, 2022. Click here to register your interest for BISMICS 2022.
