British Cardiovascular Intervention Society (BCIS)
The British Cardiovascular Intervention Society (BCIS) held its first meeting at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London on the 5th February 1988 and formed its constitution and elected its Officers. Its purpose was to establish regular meetings for those interested in interventional vascular procedures. At that time coronary angioplasty was still in its relative infancy in the United Kingdom, with a national total of just over 5,000 procedures being undertaken that year. The Society has audited interventional activity in the UK each year since then, and these are available elsewhere on this web site.
