Participants will also gain insights through demonstration and discussion of vascular access issues across a range of access sites (e.g. radial, femoral, transcaval, axillary).
By the end of this program, participants will be able to:
Possess knowledge of treatment strategies to handle both commonly encountered and less commonly encountered interventional complications.
Manage a wide variety of coronary perforations in multiple clinical situations.
