This webinar is intended to educate interventional cardiologists and cathlab staff on the novel approaches, techniques and materials for percutaneous treatment of coronary chronic occlusions.

Clinical case scenarios will cover:

  • Indications to CTO treatment and appropriateness of CTO PCI
  • The hybrid approach
  • Antegrade wire escalation and dissection re-entry technique (STAR, contrast guided STAR, mini STAR, LAST, CrossBoss/Stingray)
  • Retrograde dissection re-entry technique (Reverse CART)
  • Complex Antegrade and Retrograde CTO PCI
  • Complication prevention and management
  • How to improve clinical outcomes

This webinar is to inform and educate interventional cardiologists on:

  • The clinical indication for the CTO PCI
  • Novel approaches and techniques to enhance success rate and improve clinical outcomes
  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • Cardiac Surgeons
  • Interventional Fellows
  • Cathlab Nurses, Technicians and Managers
