The recanalization of coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) has become a routine intervention to treat symptomatic patients with ischemia or heart failure. It is an evolving discipline, with operators constantly improving their skills in complex percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI).
More and more interventional cardiologists are eager to learn and develop CTO PCI programs in their cath labs. Learning and reviewing the basics, tips & tricks, and mastering CTO techniques are essential to manage patients with such complex coronary disease. We conceived this event to support their initiatives, and following the success our first Edition in 2016, we are happy to announce the ML CTO 2017.
The main goal of this event is to bring together passionate operators in one place, from beginners to experts, in a climate of openness and collegiality. Angiographers will find this conference to be an opportunity to strengthen their skills and learn new strategies tailored to their level.
The Multi-Level CTO Course includes didactic and practical lectures with simultaneous live cases, related to the topics covered during sessions. The first day is dedicated to CTO PCI basics in antegrade and retrograde approaches, with live case broadcasts of simpler CTO interventions. In parallel, a special session dedicated to paramedics will be held in French. The second day is focused on advanced antegrade techniques and basics of antegrade dissection re-entry. Finally, on the third day, the most challenging cases of the course will be performed and we will address more advanced retrograde and antegrade dissection re-entry strategies, discuss the management of complications, and share tips & tricks. A special session for fellows will also allow younger operators to present interesting clinical cases.
To allow as many operators as possible to benefit from this event, the full conference will be streamed live on www.incathlab.com.
We truly hope this ML CTO Edition will meet all your expectations, and provide a complete curriculum that is adapted to your individual expertise.
Welcome to Nice!
