Overview

Left Main Coronary Artery (LMCA) intervention is challenging to the operator due to a wide array of factors as compared to treating other stenosis elsewhere in the coronary tree. Complications arising from hemodynamic instability, lack of proximal reference angiographically and lesion preparation due to a higher rate of atherosclerosis make LM Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) by far the most complex to treat.

 

During this series of three live webinars on Overcoming the Complexities of Coronary Intervention – Contemporary PCI in LM Disease, our faculty of renowned international experts will walk you through the complexities of LM Disease and the state of the art image-guided stent optimization treatment strategies, in different clinical sub settings of LM aorta-ostial and LM-bifurcation disease, and the innovative ultra low contrast PCI techniques applied for LM disease.

 

Reserve your seat for Webinar 2 'Precision Diagnostics in LM Bifurcation Disease – Imaging and Optimization Guidance' on Thursday 30th September (08:00BST / 09:00CEST / 17:00AEST) by clicking HERE

Part 2

Precision Diagnostics in LM Aorta-ostial Disease – Imaging and Optimization Guidance

Don't miss this on-demand webinar chaired by Dr Jose de la Torre who is joined by an international faculty including Dr Albert Alahmar, Dr Do-Yoon Kang and Dr Raymond Chi-Yan Fung and the audience-digital moderator Dr Tamara Garcia Camarero. Learn from this team of renowned experts about the challenges of treating Left Main aorta-ostial disease by starting with an overview lecture focusing on stenting techniques and image-guided optimization strategies. The operators will demonstrate, with interactive case-in-point, the use of imaging and IVUS Co-registration for PCI guidance during treatment of aorta-ostial lesions.

Part 3

Precision Diagnostics in LM Bifurcation Disease – Imaging and Optimization Guidance

Discover more on the next steps of using image-guided stent optimization strategies in treating Left Main bifurcation lesions – an area which carries the risk of occluding side branches and involving a higher rate of in-stent-restenosis (*1). This live webinar moderated by Dr Jose de la Torre and a group of renowned operators will demonstrate how these challenges can be addressed through recorded case-in-point from international centers and overview lectures.

Part 4

Ultra-Low Contrast PCI in Left Main Disease

The finale of this series of three sessions on Left Main will feature a live webinar moderated by Dr Jose de la Torre in which the use of ultra-low contrast tools and techniques in Left Main diseases will be demonstrated – an area of intervention which is less chartered due to the potential complexities that can arise. Learn from a team of renowned operators via recorded, interactive case-in-point and lectures showcasing the latest state of the art way to perform LM ULCPCI – a potential norm for the future.
