Overview

Radcliffe are delighted to partner with Optima Education to host the on-demand Optimal PCI London 2023 event.

 

Optimal PCI London 2023 was a hybrid two-day event held on the 2–3 October at The Royal College of Physicians, London, UK. With over 20 expert faculty, it focused on six complex, high-risk intervention topics: pre-procedural planning, imaging, calcium, stent failure, left main PCI and CTO / LV support. 

 

Optima is proud to partner with OPCI (NYC), to bring you the next instalment in leading cardiology education. 

 

At Optima, we believe that education is central to patient care. Our unique approach is designed to help you develop the thinking, skills and knowledge to optimise patient care. We clarify and simplify clinical messaging into engaging and accessible content. Our values of quality, simplicity and innovation are central to this vision.

 

 

Optima would like to thank the following sponsors:

Lead: Shockwave Medical, Boston Scientific and Abbott

Supporting: ASAHI INTECC, Teleflex, Vascular Perspectives, HeartFlow, Medtronic, CathWorks, Cordis, Abiomed, Philips, GE Healthcare, Seigla Medical, RAMPART, HCA Healthcare and CoreAalst

This is an Optima Education event in partnership with OPCI.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the main elements in pre-procedural planning and how it guides PCI
  • Explore the role of coronary arterial calcium in driving adverse outcomes, how to assess and treat these patients safely
  • Understand what causes stent failure, how this is assessed and what drives treatment options in each case
  • Explore the role of left ventricular support in complex coronary artery disease

Target Audience

  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • Interventional Cardiology Nurses
  • Cathlab Personnel
  • Interventional Fellows
