Leading practitioners of percutaneous coronary intervention must become experts at recanalizing chronic total occlusions (CTO), and with advanced techniques, success rates greater than 90% may be obtained. Achieving high success rates with minimal complications is dependent upon physicians being up-to-date on the most recent advances in operator technique, guidewire technology, and other adjunctive devices.
Bringing together leaders in the field of CTO, the Chronic Total Occlusion Summit: A Live Case Demonstration Course will be held in the heart of New York City.
Sessions will emphasize both advanced techniques and evidence-based medicine, with a heavy reliance on live case transmissions, featuring the world’s leading experts in CTO PCI. Topics to be covered include:
- Fundamentals of CTO PCI
- Complex Retrograde and Antegrade CTO PCI
- Complication Prevention and Management
- How to Improve Outcomes Today
- 2016 and 2017 Essential CTO Updates
- Live Case Transmissions
- Edited Taped Case Presentations
