Philips Physicians in training graduation programHere’s a quick look at highlights from our 2022 Graduation Series, including an exclusive sneak peek of what’s in store May 5 – 7, 2023 in Cleveland, OH.
See how iFR Co-registration can change treatment decisions in comparison to angiographyThe use of iFR and now iFR Co-registration enables physicians to guide their decisions and interventions with clear physiologic data with regards to ischemia and flow limitations of specific lesions.
Case review of IVUS-guided PCI of a bifurcation lesionIn this program, Professor Sharp and Dr. Gallagher will present a case of an IVUS-guided PCI of bifurcation lesion. They will discuss and demonstrate the various strategies available for this LAD/Diag bifurcation lesion and how IVUS plays a significant role in the planning, treatment and optimization of this PCI.
How to use iFR pullback and Refinity rotational IVUS to perform an OM/Circumflex PCI while minimizing contrast useMinimizing contrast during PCI has become significantly important not only due to the recent contrast shortage, but now with more complex patients with renal impairment needing treatment.
Dallas PCIMark your calendars to attend Dallas PCI, a CME accredited program, November 11th - 12th. Baylor Scott & White - The Heart Hospital Plano and The Foundation for Advanced Cardiovascular Education and Training present this program targeted for physicians and allied health professionals who care for patients in which PCI is provided. Course directors Dr. Karim Al-Azizi and Dr. Srini Potluri will provide a comprehensive agenda of didactic presentations, live cases and interactive discussions with leading US and global operators.
How to achieve optimal procedural success using ELCARecanalize occluded arteries, modify lesion morphology and optimize treatment options with ELCA
What is the evidence for routine intravascular imaging?The routine use of IVUS can lead to more precise PCI, better outcomes and even provide some economic benefit to those involved in treatment of CAD patients as outlined in this presentation.
Patients with diffuse disease and renal dysfunction present challenging cases which require a variety of tools to successfully treatTreating patients with renal dysfunction requires unique techniques, technologies and workflow which can align well with the treatment of diffuse disease.
Case review of IVUS-guided PCI for a long, but relatively uncomplicated lesionIn this program, Professor Sharp and Dr. Gallagher will review a case of an IVUS-guided PCI for a long, but relatively uncomplicated lesion. They will show the workflow and strategies for assessing the vessel before PCI, lesion preparation, stent positioning, sizing and optimization.
Key measurement and vessel sizing techniques for utilizing IVUS in routine and complex cases; outlined in easy to understand stepsIn this program Professor Sharp will review the workflow and algorithms most often used to size vessels for stent selection and placement. He will also explain the strategies of using IVUS to optimize stents for optimal PCI results.
Implications reveal DEFINE PCI study may lead to procedural improvements in PCIListen to important clinical implications of how iFR pullbacks are changing how success in PCI is assessed in the DEFINE PCI study results discussion.
Simple Stent Optimization protocol using IVUS from Dr. Jimmy KerriganWatch this short clip where Dr. Jimmy Kerrigan outlines a simple, straightforward IVUS protocol that he uses in his PCIs to plan, land and optimize his stents.
