Transcatheter Interventions Online 2020 - On Demand
Published: 12 June 2020
The programme aims to educate interventionalists and allied healthcare professionals on the practical implications of the latest clinical data, device selection and procedural strategies impacting optimum patient care. To further illustrate this, the event will feature a number of practical demonstrations in the form of live cases broadcast from cardiovascular centres of excellence globally, interspersed with presentations and debate sessions.
This three-day programme has been accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for a total of 12 CME points, equating to 12 hours of learning (4 hours per day). Physicians may convert EBAC External CME credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity. EBAC works according to the quality standards of the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), which is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
Through an agreement between the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EBAC External CME credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EBAC credit to AMA credit can be found on the AMA website https://www.ama-assn.org/

Nicolas M Van Mieghem
Prof Nicolas Maria Van Mieghem is an Interventional cardiologist at Thoraxcenter, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, NL decided to pursue a career that would help others. “I enjoy the feeling of being able to help someone or do something important for them". His father was a general cardiologist and one of his biggest influences early in his career.
Prof Van Mieghem initially intended to train as a cardiac surgeon but decided to specialise in interventional cardiology instead, following advice from a mentor. This decision was cemented when he read the first-in-human case report of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in Circulation by Alain Cribier in 2002. Prof Van Mieghem believes that great cardiologist genuinely cares for their patients. He names Gary Roubin, Dr Manu Malbrain and Professor Patrick Serruys among his mentors.
His current research focuses on cerebral embolic protection during TAVI and the search for improved…
