It is an honor and a pleasure to write this message for the participants of PAK LIVE 2022. This meeting is the flagship conference representing the interventional community of Pakistan. From its humble beginning in the 90’s, it has come a long way and can now be compared to any of the top interventional cardiac conferences.
This year’s meeting agenda is all-encompassing and covers nearly all of the important aspects of contemporary interventional cardiology. This meeting will capture not only the interest of a young fellow early in his training but also the mood and interest of an experienced expert interventional cardiologist.
I hope everyone goes away from this 4 day’s meeting filled with renewed vigor and knowledge relevant to their own practices.

It’s been a privilege and honor to be involved with Pakistan Live from its humble rejuvenation in 2016 till today when it has grown into an international-level Interventional Cardiology meeting.
Pakistan Live has developed into one of the most academic meetings in cardiology. International live case transmissions from all around the globe as well local live transmissions have been the hallmark of this meeting. Focus on the whole cath lab team including nurses, technologists, and interventional cardiology fellows has made Pakistan Live a very unique conference.
This year we have added several new programs including- How to – Step by Step learning sessions as well training village/hands-on workshops for the most important procedures performed in the cath lab. Fellows case corner has been very popular among trainees encouraging them to present their interesting cases. Prizes will be awarded for best-case presentations. There will be more focus on case-based discussions in the main program instead of lectures.
Collaboration, active participation, and endorsement by the Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions USA and Asia Pacific Society of Interventional Cardiology is a great testament to the academic content and quality of the meeting.
I can assure you that it will be a great learning activity for everyone whether one is a novice or an expert in the field of Interventional cardiology.
I will be looking forward to welcoming you all to Islamabad.
