Transcatheter Interventions Online - Session 2.3: Practical Pearls Toward a More Advanced CTO Programme
In this session, part of Transcatheter Interventions Online 2022 – Practical Pearls Toward a More Advanced CTO Programme, the faculty provide an update on use of Imaging and Coronary Physiology in the CTO Space, Novel Recanalization Techniques and Goal-oriented Mindset in CTO Procedures, with further insights provided by an international panel.
Transcatheter Interventions Online (TIO) aims to educate interventionalists and allied healthcare professionals on the practical implications of the latest clinical data, device selection, and procedural strategies impacting optimum patient care. To further illustrate this, the event will feature a number of practical demonstrations in the form of live cases broadcast from cardiovascular centers of excellence globally, interspersed with presentations and debate sessions.
This programme is intended to educate:
Cardiologists, interventionalists and surgeons who are involved and/or interested in transcatheter treatment strategies for coronary and structural heart disease, and interventional cardiology nurses.
The overall programme, Transcatheter Interventions Online 2022, endeavours to best address the following learning objectives:
- Describe the practical implications of TAVI in the context of coronary artery disease, atrioventricular valve disease and transcatheter heart valve degeneration
- Select appropriate tools for calcified coronary artery disease, including mechanical circulatory support and invasive imaging techniques
- Understand coronary physiology, novel recanalization and goal-oriented planning for chronic total occlusion
- Evaluate the role of novel oral anticoagulants in transcatheter aortic valve implantation
- Discuss the need for gender-specific trials and renal denervation
