In this live case series Prof James Spratt and Dr Thierry Lefèvre will guide us through a progressive and comprehensive educational journey around the globe. We will join various live case centres, over 11 months to learn from over 30 expert perspectives on how LMPCI is performed in a contemporary setting.
The aim of the series being, to break down the complexity of the whole procedure into a systematic, algorithmic, step by step approach. Simplified for us by top operators and faculty, through live cases and relevant flash lectures to support the learning.
With LM PCI being the most divisive procedure performed in interventional cardiology currently, the need to stay informed and aware of innovation in products and techniques has become all the more important.

The Role of Imaging in the Left Main
Prof James Spratt (St George’s University Hospital NHS Trust, London, UK) moderators a live broadcast on an important topic on Left Main PCI and 'The Role of Intravascular Imaging in the Left Main'.
The broadcast starts with a live case from one of the major centres in Kuwait (Mubarak Alkabeer Hospital – Cardiac Catheterization & Research Unit, Jabriya, KW) where case operators Dr Abdullah Esmaiel, Dr Fahad Alhajri and Dr Ali Alsulaimi present a case with a 49-year-old male patient who has a history of CAD, HTN and HLD,
This expert panel examine their approaches and that they would use imaging, then the live case centre goes on further to discuss what their approach would be using IVUS to map out the case.
Following the live case, Dr Kalaivani Mahadevan (Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust) explains 'Overcoming the Barriers to Intracoronary Imaging in Left Main PCI'
