Stent failure remains a significant challenge in the treatment of CAD, and a recurring burden within the complex PCI setting. This webinar aims to best illustrate how understanding of the mechanisms that trigger the onset of ISR is key in determining treatment strategies and how – through algorithms and case-based tips and tricks – to maximise outcomes with diagnostic and treatment technologies.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Recognise the interacting factors that can lead to stent failure
  • Understand how effectively physiological assessment can guide PCI for angiographic restenosis
  • Demonstrate how routine use of using intra-coronary imaging can identify the aetiology of stent failure
  • Through case-based examples show how specific devices for lesion preparation can be efficiently targeted toward the mechanism of restenosis to optimise PCI for long term durability

Target Audience

  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • Interventional Fellows
  • Registrars with an interest in interventional cardiology

Peter O’Kane

Dr Peter O’Kane has been a consultant interventional cardiologist at Royal Bournemouth Hospital for more than 8 years. This is currently the UK’s highest volume non-surgical PCI centre and he annually performs more than 450 PCI cases. The case mix is complex particularly amongst the many elderly patients who have multi-vessel coronary disease which includes extensively calcified lesions, bifurcations including left main stem and chronic total occlusions.

He is committed to teaching and is a National Proctor for Rotational Atherectomy and Optical Frequency Domain Imaging (OFDI), European proctor for laser atherectomy and International proctor for the Axxess dedicated bifurcation stent and Absorb. He has trained consultant colleagues from the UK, Europe and Asia in the multiple adjunctive devices in PCI, intracoronary imaging and the implantation techniques and rationale for use of Absorb.

He has published more than 35 manuscripts in the last decade and has authored 10 book chapters.
