OVERVIEW

A growing number of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) find themselves in need of stent PCI or coronary artery bypass graft surgery, but have been told they are too high-risk for complications that may occur during these procedures. Left without treatment options, these patients deal with worsening chest discomfort, shortness of breath, fatigue and heart failure.

To address this growing population of high-risk CAD patients, interventional cardiologists have demonstrated outstanding clinical outcomes using an advanced catheter-based procedure called Complete Higher Risk Indicated Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) or CHIP to open blocked coronary arteries in the high-risk patient.

Expert faculty will offer insights into selecting devices and patients, optimizing technique, and overcoming difficult anatomy. The latest clinical data and guidelines for complex, higher-risk procedures also will be reviewed.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This educational activity is designed for interventional cardiologists, clinical cardiologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of complex and high-risk patients with coronary artery disease.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this program, attendees will be able to:

  • Confidently treat patients with complex lesions
  • Handle challenging anatomy or clinical characteristics
  • Establish a CHIP program at your practice

Event dedicated exclusively to medical professionals.
