Welcome to the Planning and Guidance of Complex Percutaneous Coronary Interventions.
The course will be largely based on live learning from live and recorder cases, linked to the meeting room with cutting edge technology which will facilitate discussion and interaction with all attendees. We will be delighted to bring live and recorded cases demonstrations from Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Madrid, Spain to showcase the planning of PCI procedures and, subsequently, the use of diagnostic and therapeutic tools during the intervention.
You will see that we are privileged to have a distinguished faculty in this two-day program; all of whom are engaged in cutting-edge research in the field of intravascular imaging and coronary physiology in addition to being expert PCI operators.
