Foundations of CTO: Master the Complex

This program is designed to highlight best clinical practices for Complex PCI and CTO through the optimization of revascularization. This program will be delivered through regional training programs which will embody didactic and case presentations, in addition to hands-on experience with current technology. Through this program, an attendee will be able to obtain sound knowledge on fundamentals around complex coronary intervention, allowing the attendee to explain the rationale for PCI in patients with complex coronary disease. Through discussions around the usage of different tools in optimizing PCI outcomes, the program will provide basic knowledge enhancement on CTO‑PCI. Skills such as the Hybrid Algorithm technique will also be discussed in-depth. Through program content, the attendee will gain knowledge to formulate a step by step procedure on building a complex coronary revascularization program.

Intended Audience

  • Fellows
  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • Lead Nurse or Tech with their Physician*
*6.75 CE Credits for Nurse/Tech

Course Objectives

  • Understand the fundamentals of complex coronary intervention
  • Explain the rationale for PCI in patients with complex coronary disease
  • Know what tools are available for optimizing PCI outcomes
  • Comprehend the basics of CTO‑PCI and the Hybrid Algorithm technique
  • Recognize the steps to building a complex coronary revascularization program

 

Complex PCI Observational Preceptorship

This program offers an opportunity for physicians to observe cases with the experts at Complex PCI Training Centers. Through a one day peer-to-peer case observation, attendees will garner expertise and confidence in device utilization, understanding, and decision making to support their patient needs. The program will provide real time open discussions throughout the procedure on cases which require rotational atherectomy, imaging, transradial approach, and other procedures for complex lesions.

Intended Audience

  • Fellows
  • Interventional Cardiologists 

Course Objectives

  • Understand the application and problem solving requirements needed to address complex coronary disease
  • Know what tools are available for optimizing PCI outcomes
  • Gain expertise and confidence in devices and procedural decision factors

 

Complex Coronary Observational Preceptorship: “The Rota Course”

This program offers an opportunity for physicians to observe cases with an expert, Dr. Samin Sharma of Mt. Sinai Hospital, in PCI coronary atherectomy (ROTABLATOR™ Rotational Atherectomy System). Through peer-to-peer case observation, attendees will garner expertise and confidence in device and decision making to support their patient needs.

Intended Audience

  • Fellows
  • Interventional Cardiologists 

Course Objectives

  • Understand the application of rotational atherectomy and problem solving requirements needed to address complex coronary disease
  • Know what tools are available for optimizing PCI outcomes using rotational atherectomy
