Optimizing PCI (O-PCI) is a series of educational meetings dedicated to helping cardiologists optimize decision-making in interventional cardiac procedures using state-of-the-art intravascular imaging and physiology technologies. Our renowned international faculty is committed to help cardiologists master interpretation of invasive diagnostic devices and treat with precision, thus securing optimal outcomes for patients.

Gregg W. Stone, MD, FACC, MSCAI is an interventional cardiologist and Director of Academic Affairs for the Mount Sinai Heart Health System and Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) and Professor of Population Health Sciences and Policy at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, NY. Dr. Stone has served as the national or international principal investigator for more than 120 national and international multicenter randomized trials (many of which have led to new device approval or indications in the US), has authored more than 2000 manuscripts and abstracts published in the peer-reviewed literature, and has delivered thousands of invited lectures around the world. With a 2018 H-factor of 152, Dr. Stone was recently listed in Nature Medicine as one of the most prolific authors in science. Dr. Stone's areas of expertise include interventional therapies of acute coronary syndromes, myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock; drug-eluting stents and bioresorbable scaffolds; left main and complex coronary artery disease intervention; antiplatelet and antithrombotic pharmacotherapies; transcatheter valve repair and replacement; interventional hypertension and heart failure therapies; left atrial appendage closure; intravascular imaging (IVUS, OCT and NIRS); vulnerable plaque diagnosis and treatment; adjunctive interventional devices including atherectomy, distal embolic protection, thrombectomy, covered stents, chronic total occlusion devices, and brachytherapy; saphenous vein graft therapies; contrast nephropathy; clinical trial design; and regulatory issues. Dr. Stone is the director of TCT, the world's largest symposium devoted to interventional cardiology and vascular medicine. Dr. Stone founded the annual National Interventional Cardiology Fellow's Course and Transcatheter Valve Therapies TVT), the Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO) Summit, and co-directs multiple other meetings in the US, China, Russia, Europe, S. Korea and elsewhere.
