Ultralow Contrast PCI in complex and high risk patients

Info Agenda Videos


The curriculum of the course will address fundamental aspects of PCI. Contrary to what many colleagues may think, ULC PCI is not intended solely for patients with pre-existing chronic kidney disease: it is a compendium of tools and skills aiming to improve procedural safety and the quality of coronary revascularisation in complex patients by reducing operator's dependence on vessel opacification during PCI. In that regard, one of the first tasks of the course will be generating awareness of the many clinical situations in which ULC PCI may be helpful. We shall discuss in depth the importance of a change in mindset in ULC PCI. Be ready to learn features of your angiographic equipment that you were unaware of and that are very helpful in ULC PCI. We shall analyse how to best use available material (pre-existing coronary CT or angiography) in planning the intervention. And, of course, the use of dedicated tools and techniques during the intervention, including intracoronary ultrasound and physiology, dynamic coronary roadmapping, along with many tips and tricks that do not require special equipment and that will increase your confidence as an operator during PCI.

Course directors: Prof Javier Escaned, Dr Justin Davies, Dr Nieves Gonzalo
