Network members Eivind Sørensen (The Birkebeiner II Study), Turid Apelland, André La Gerche and Marius Myrstad (The NEXAF Detraining Study) attended the Pro@Heart Symposium in Leuven, Belgium September 24-26 2021. “Protecting the athlete by improving our understanding of athlete’s physiology” was the title of the symposium, and the program covered topics such as exercise-induced cardiac remodeling and arrhythmias in athletes, sudden cardiac death in athletes, devices for long-term monitoring of heart rhythm, exercise intensity monitoring, and functional cardiac imaging with MRI.
Network members Guido Claessen, Leuven, and Andrè La Gerche, Melbourne, presented the Master@Heart Study and the Pro@Heart Study, respectively. Both studies include endurance athletes in Belgium and Australia, aiming to improve the understanding of exercise-cardiac remodeling and its consequences.
