3rd Edition ML CTO 2018

The 3rd Edition of the international Multi-level CTO Course was held in Nice (France) from June 28th to June 30th, 2018 at Palais de la Méditerranée, and brought together 675 participants from 65 countries. Following the success of the first and second Edition, the main goal of this event was to bring together all passionate operators in one place: from beginners to experts in a climate of openness and congeniality. This conference, with simultaneous translation in English and French, was organized on 3 days modules:

  • Module 1 - Module dedicated to operators willing to learn and/or reinforce their CTO knowledge on: antegrade basic techniques and strategies - first steps in retrograde.
  • Module 2 - Module dedicated to regular operators willing to master more advanced techniques: complex antegrade - first steps in antegrade dissection re-entry.
  • Module 3 - Module dedicated to experienced operators mastering all CTO techniques and strategies: complex retrograde - complex ADR - complications. Module based on interactivity and exchanges about personal and practical experiences.

Each module included live cases performed by national and international experienced operators, with associated didactic lectures and interactive discussions, related to the topics covered during sessions.

For more information about the Scientific Program and the Faculty Guests, we invite you to navigate through the ML CTO website.
