Class 7 (Live Case) - Bifurcations: Focus on Best Practices


Colm Hanratty

A consultant cardiologist at Mater Private Hospital, Dublin, Ireland. Features in 20 videos on Wondr Medical. Colm Hanratty generally speaks on Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR), Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS), Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO), Calcium Scoring, and Stable Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).

Dr. James Kong

Dr. Kong practices general and interventional cardiology, including coronary peripheral and venous intervention. In layman's terms, he treats general conditions affecting the heart, with a special emphasis on circulatory blockages of the heart and the arterial system. He performs angioplasty, stenting, and the minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins. Born and raised in Dayton, OH, his father was an engineer and his mother was a physician. He earned an undergraduate degree in engineering at Duke University, and then went on to medical school while staying at Duke. Dr. Kong came directly to Ohio Heart and Vascular Center in 2005, after his fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center. He and his wife have two children, a boy and a girl. They are dog lovers, and have rescued several dogs over the years. Dr. Kong is interested in fitness, martial arts and self-defense. He also follows college basketball, and his alma mater, the Duke Blue Devils. Dr. Kong finds the most rewarding part of being a physician is seeing patients improve. "When patients come in after I have treated them and say, 'I feel better,' that's the best thing that I can hear."

James Spratt

Prof James C Spratt has global experience in training physicians in complex and CTO PCI. He is the Director of Optimal CTO and the author of the Retrograde iBook and co-author of the antegrade iBook.

Robert Riley

Dr. Riley is an Interventional Cardiologist specializing in the care of patients with complex and high-risk coronary artery disease and cardiogenic shock. He focuses on the treatment of coronary chronic total occlusions, multivessel coronary artery disease (including patients turned down for CABG surgery), atherectomy, and those in need of mechanical circulatory support. He was born in Knoxville, TN and completed his undergraduate education at Furman University with a degree in Chemistry. He attended medical school at the University of Virginia and completed residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Washington. He then completed his Cardiology fellowship at Wake Forest University, during which he obtained a Masters degree in Clinical and Population Translational Science. He then returned to the University of Washington to complete his Interventional Cardiology fellowship, followed by the first ever advanced fellowship in Complex, High-Risk, and Indicated PCI and Hemodynamic Support before joining the group at Christ Hospital. He is very active in clinical research, co-edits a monthly newsletter on high-risk PCI, and enjoys speaking at national and international meetings.

Thierry Lefèvre

Prof. Thierry Lefèvre is Head of the Interventional Cardiology Department and Head of Research at the Cardiovascular Institute Paris-Sud (ICPS), Massy (France), France. His expertise include Interventional Cardiology and Valvular Heart Disease. He has a major interest in clinical research, having published over 726 scientific publications, and is a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and a Fellow of the Society for Angiography and Interventions.
