DAPT Dilemmas: A Case-Based Roundtable Tutorial

Sponsored by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation
Supported through educational grants from AstraZeneca, Boston Scientific Corporation, CeloNova Biosciences, Inc., CHIESI USA, Inc., and Medtronic
Room: Bonnet Creek IV

Description: This popular case-based session will focus on real clinical decision-making regarding antiplatelet pharmacotherapy for complex patients, led by several thought leaders in the field. Specific cases to be discussed in an open and interactive format will be patients with STEMI, NSTEACS, patients who bleed with newly placed stents, and pre-operative patients for whom PCI is indicated.

Room: Bonnet Creek VI

Description: The rise of intracoronary physiology and imaging continues in 2017 with new clinical data, technology improvements and a broader market adoption. Chaired by Drs. Joel A. Garcia and Ajay J. Kirtane, this session will focus on hot topics in 2017, including a review on resting vs hyperemic physiological measurements, appropriate vessel sizing through imaging, and incorporation of OCT into daily practice.

Room: Bonnet Creek V

Description: This program is designed to provide leading edge medical education on left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) with WATCHMAN to interventional cardiologist Fellows eager to learn more about this emerging technology.
• Understand the current state of evidence-based medicine for stroke risk reduction in patients with NVAF
• Discuss the clinical considerations for LAAC
• Review the appropriate patient selection for LAAC based on US indications
• Overview of implant technique and skills required to perform a safe LAAC procedure

Room: Bonnet Creek IV

Description: Cardiogenic shock continues to be a challenge to identify and treat. Over the past 20 years the mortality has not changed. This program will look at an overview and definition of the various stages of cardiogenic shock, early recognition and treatment options:

  • Brief foundation on cardiac mechanics, including etiology and pathophysiology of cardiogenic shock
  • Early recognition of the stages of cardiogenic shock
  • Current treatment strategies for patients with cardiogenic shock, including drugs and devices
  • Case reviews
