The role of imaging to guide your procedure in complex lesions

Wednesday 11th May 2016 @ 4pm (BST)

Performed by

Dr. Hakim BEN-AMER

Interventional Cardiologist

Institut Cardiovasculaire Paris Sud

This educational initiative is supported by GE Healthcare GE Healthcare  

You should attend the session if you want:

To see cases that address typical issues in stenting complex lesions.
To learn about PCI ASSIST, a new set of advanced imaging technologies that can be used in routine and in complex lesions to:

  • guide the stents during the procedure, determine optimal apposition of proximal part of main branch stent.
  • Precisely position the side branch stent.
  • Minimize stent overlap.
  • Avoid a gap between the two stents.

Type of case: T-stenting on LAD bifurcation lesion

 

  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • CathLab managers

This webinar is to inform and educate interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons on

  • Sharing Dr BEN-AMER’s experience on stenting techniques in complex lesions.
  • Understanding how StentViz and StentVesselViz can be used in routine to help guide stent placement and assess stent deployment.
  • Understanding how StentViz and StentVesselViz can give you information both on stent overlap and stent positioning vs. a bifurcation.
  • Discovering the complementary benefits of StentViz and StentVesselViz in case of T-Stenting.
