Thanks to dedicated devices and techniques developed at least over the past ten years the percutaneous coronary intervention of chronic total occlusions has achieved a high success rate with low complications and helped improve our capacity also to treat non-CTO lesions,.
Last year, the major European randomised study – the EURO-CTO trial – consolidated the indication for CTO revascularisation by PCI. Now we must treat our patients rather by percutaneous intervention than only by medication in order to improve their quality of life. The purpose of this meeting is to enable us to share and discuss our experiences with experts in order to improve CTO PCI.
Previous meetings have made a great contribution thanks to the live cases presented, but also to their scientific programmes and international faculty.
Feedback from the attending physicians clearly shows that such focused meetings are of significant value covering the topic in a fashion that is not possible in major interventional meetings with broader interests. This is a great opportunity for us to get together and discuss major issues such as continuous education, techniques and product development, research in the field, as well as to share tips and tricks, among many other topics.
This year we are happy to organise the10th Experts “Live” CTO Workshop in Toulouse, France, from 14 to 15 September 2018
Why attend such a meeting?
- The number of studies performed in the field of CTOs has increased considerably, and we shall provide an up-to-date overview of current knowledge.
- For the fourth time “live cases” will be part of the programme – but also, live-in-the box, clinical cases. During this expert meeting, we will share more than just scientific data. Tips and tricks, complex cases, devices in research and development will be shared with an international faculty and expert operators
- In Toulouse city we offer you an attractive destination conveniently located in the south of France
We look forward to meeting all of you in Toulouse.
