Transcatheter Interventions Online

Day 2 – CHIP

11th June | 4-8pm CEST (10am – 2pm ET)

Prof Nicolas M Van Mieghem (Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, NL)

The programme aims to educate interventionalists and allied healthcare professionals on the practical implications of the latest clinical data, device selection and procedural strategies impacting optimum patient care. To further illustrate this, the event will feature a number of practical demonstrations in the form of live cases broadcast from cardiovascular centres of excellence globally, interspersed with presentations and debate sessions.

CME Accreditation

This three-day programme has been accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for a total of 12 CME points, equating to 12 hours of learning (4 hours per day). Physicians may convert EBAC External CME credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity. EBAC works according to the quality standards of the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), which is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).

Through an agreement between the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EBAC External CME credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EBAC credit to AMA credit can be found on the AMA website

Cardiologists, interventionalists and surgeons who are involved and/or interested in transcatheter treatment strategies for coronary and structural heart disease.

Following the activities, the participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate emerging clinical data related to interventional cardiology practice including for both devices and pharmacology
  • Recognise the latest interventional approaches for SHD and Complex PCI available for the optimal management of CV patients
  • Assess the merits of adopting emerging technologies within their practice
  • Apply the practical guidance to maximise success of their interventional procedures within TAVR, Mitral & Tricuspid Valve Replacement and Complex PCIs
  • Interact with opinion leaders in their profession
