Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and coronary physiology can resolve abnormalities within the coronary artery to a degree that is not possible with angiography alone. They have the potential to change clinical management decisions and to ensure correct stent sizing and apposition. This webinar describes scenarios of clinical uncertainty where the coronary angiogram has not provided enough information. It also gives examples of how IVUS with physiology co-registration can help to clarify decision-making in such cases.

Andrew SP Sharp

Prof Andrew Sharp is a Consultant Cardiologist at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, UK. Andrew qualified from Edinburgh Medical School in 1998. He was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital in 2011 and Honorary Associate Professor by the University of Exeter in 2018 before moving to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff in the summer of 2019.

Andrew conducted his early training at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, before moving to London for his senior clinical training, completing the prestigious Milan-Imperial Interventional Cardiology Fellowship programme. Dr Sharp was awarded an MD postgraduate research degree from the University of Edinburgh for his work on the hypertensive heart and his current research interests include device-based treatments for hypertension, pulmonary embolism, intracoronary imaging and coronary physiology.

Andrew's specialist interests include the pharmacological and interventional treatment of resistant hypertension (including renal denervation); intra-coronary physiology to assess the causes of chest pain; complex angioplasty and stenting of coronary artery disease and CT coronary angiography.

Dr Andrew Sharp is Deputy Editor (Development) of Interventional Cardiology: Reviews, Research, Resources (ICR3)
