Serbian Cardionephrology Association

Invitation letter: welcome to CARNEF 2023

The Sixth International Congress of Cardionephricology - Carnef 2023

First International Symposium on Arterial Hypertension

29-31. May 2023

Hotel “Ana Lux”- Pirot, Serbia

Dear friends and colleagues,

     It is my great pleasure and honor to invite you on behalf of the Organizational Committee to the eleventh meeting of the Association for Cardionephrology of Serbia. For the first time, it will be organized in the form of two special meetings: the Sixth International Congress of Cardionephrology and the First International Symposium on Arterial Hypertension.

"Carnef" is already a traditional gathering of cardiologists and nephrologists, in which doctors from other specialties also participate: physiologists, pathophysiologists, biochemists, pharmacologists, endocrinologists, pulmonologists, anesthesiologists and radiologists. The participation of pharmacists, chemists and biologists is also of great importance. A multidisciplinary approach to the problem of associated heart and kidney diseases is the only correct way that enables early detection, proper diagnosis, prevention and treatment of these conditions.

Arterial hypertension is singled out as a separate thematic unit, which even today, due to the complexity of pathophysiological events and clinical manifestations, represents a challenge for adequate treatment and prevention. It is also the main cause of multiorgan damage, primarily the heart and kidneys.

The work of the conference will take place through thematic sessions, plenary lectures, educational seminars, direct meetings of the participants with experts from certain fields and poster sessions. Over forty lectures will be held, and the lecturers will be eminent experts from the country and abroad, which certainly indicates the importance and high quality of the meeting.

This time too, a special session will be organized dedicated to the presentations of the works of young researchers in the field of cardionephrology and an award will be given for the best work, as well as a session on experimental cardionephrology, which as a basic scientific discipline greatly contributes to the understanding of the complex etiopathogenetic mechanisms of the interaction of the heart and kidneys.

In addition to the scientific, the meeting also has a high educational potential. It represents the school of cardionephrology, unique not only in our country and region, but also in Southeast Europe.

Our eleventh meeting is also related to the year in which we celebrate a significant anniversary - 20 years of existence and work of the Association for Cardionephrology of Serbia. This is the time to analyze where cardionephrology is today, what is its future and what are the challenges and dilemmas along the way.

The role of the Association for Cardionephrology of Serbia in the organization of these gatherings and in continuous work on the problems of discovering the causes and adequate treatment of patients with associated heart and kidney diseases is also recognized by major world associations. Since March 2016, our organization has been an associate member of the International Society of Nephrologists.

I invite you to join us, actively participate in the meeting and thus contribute to the development of this interdisciplinary branch of medicine in Serbia.

Hoping to see you soon in Pirot, I warmly greet you with the message "Learn more, work better and work for the benefit of the illness man"

Chairman of the Organizing Committee

Prof. Dr. Sonja Radenkovic
