Overview

This program is geared toward interventionalists seeking to better understand the latest learning on complex PCI. Presentations address treatment of left main disease, chronic total occlusions, coronary calcification in complex PCI, and hemodynamically supported PCI. Participants also learn how to manage challenging patient subsets, such as those with left main coronary artery disease. Expert faculty offer valuable insights into selecting devices and patients, optimizing technique, and overcoming difficult anatomy. The latest clinical data and guidelines for complex, higher-risk procedures also will be reviewed. Plus, attendees have the opportunity to discuss strategies and treatment for complex PCI patients.


Learning Objectives

By the end of this program, the attendees will be able to:

  • Confidently treat patients with complex lesions
  • Handle challenging anatomy or clinical characteristics
  • Utilize audience polling to discuss strategies of treatment

This educational activity is designed for interventional cardiologists, clinical cardiologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of complex and high-risk patients with coronary artery disease.

Evaluation by questionnaire will address content, presentation effectiveness, possible bias, and future educational needs.
