4th Edition ML CTO 2019

The 4th Edition of the international Multi-level CTO Course was held in Nice (France) from June 27th to June 29th, 2019 at Palais de la Méditerranée, and brought together 718 participants from 64 countries. Following the success of previous editions, 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:

  • The first day is dedicated to CTO PCI basics in antegrade and retrograde approaches, and live cases of more simple CTOs will be broadcasted.
  • The second day is focused on basics antegrade dissection re-entry and CTO guidance.
  • Finally, on the third day, the most challenging cases of the course will be performed. We will also address retrograde and antegrade dissection re-entry advanced strategies, discussing about the management of complications and sharing tips & tricks.
