For the past few months, the global health crisis has challenged our model of face-to-face meetings. As healthcare professionals, to adapt to the current situation and ensure the safety of all, we decided to transform the 9th Middle East CTO Summit into a fully virtual meeting.Our virtual course is primarily based on CTO live cases, interactive discussions, and case-based lectures, during which experts from different countries will share their experience to the new generation of interventionists on CTO PCI.With live transmission from several international Cath labs, experienced handswill  be  working  simultaneously  performing  in  live  selected  CTO  PCI  cases  with different updated techniques and devices.On the top of education and sharing experience, FORGATHER and CONNECT are our keywords this year! All  creative  tools  will  be  set  up  online  to  allow  you  to  interplay  between  attendees, operators, faculty, Industry...We hope you will enjoy this virtual Edition but we truly hope to see you soon in Jeddah next year!
