The recanalization of coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) has become an important and promising procedure to open closed coronary arteries, and thus treat silent or overt myocardial ischemia to provide perspective on improving patient outcome.
11:05 1st case - live case
11:45 2nd case - recorded procedure - Left dominant circumflex CTO. Retrograde approach. Double guiding catheter on the left main.
Image before and image after the recorded procedure
12:00 Finalization of the 1st case in live
12:15 Q&A session with live chat
- Upgrade the knowledge in CTO technics (radial/femoral/antegrade/retrograde access, dissection re-entry, laser angioplasty...)
- Discuss the stent choice after recanalization according to the type of artery lumen, the length of the lesion, the quality of run-off artery bed, stent caracteristics and performances...
- How to assess the stent results : angioplasty, IVUS, OCT...
- Compare the CTO technics and approaches of different expert operators
Interventionnal cardiologists interested in CTO technics and selection of coronary stents
