Overview

This broadcast focuses on the importance of performing full revascularization (recognized as the new standard vs culprit in STEMI patients) and the benefits of this guided by physiology to maximise patient outcomes.

Dr Gabor Toth (Graz, Austria) will moderate peers Dr Pieter Smits (Rotterdam, Netherlands) and Dr Zsolt Piroth (Budapest, Hungary) in a session based on clinical cases showing the range of criteria to decide the best interventional strategy, whilst presenting how the technological features of the OptoWire III pressure guidewire can help operators during a PCI in STEMI patients.

This event will be interactive, with live polling on key questions, and a Q&A for faculty to share their experience and provide expert insight to live audience questions.

    Heart Icon 3

Overview

After FAME and iFR, OptoWire III promises to be a technological innovation to support both a significant increase in adoption and the implementation of the recommendations of clinical studies and medical societies.

This case-based webinar, at 3pm CET / 2pm GMT, examines the barriers limiting the adoption of physiology in the real world and reviews how OptoWire III empowers physicians to overcome them.

Cases discussed will address the following:

- Calcified lesions, bifurcations

- Ease of use, fast procedure, reliable data for COVID times

- Comorbidities (alteration of renal function, need to reduce contrast and PCI duration)

 

This educational webinar will comprise two experts in complex PCI (Dr Pasi Karjalainen, Helsinki, Finland, and Dr Evald Høj ChristiansenAarhus, Denmark) each presenting a case – addressing bifurcations and calcified lesions respectively – to best highlight their experiences with the OptoWire III in supporting a complex physiology-guided procedure and simplifying the case.

Proceedings will be moderated by Dr Tim Schaufele, Bern, Switzerland, who will facilitate the discussion around the two cases and lead the live audience Q&A.
