This track will kick off with a Radial Mini Symposium, while another mini symposium will focus on chronic total occlusion, with sessions on the fundamentals, advanced techniques, and management of complications. Taped live cases will illustrate sessions on complex percutaneous coronary intervention and treatment of bifurcations. Another session will address “Worst Nightmares and Best Saves.”
- Peripheral Track
The peripheral track will feature a session on the greatest advances in PVD over the last year. Other highlights will include a symposium on critical limb ischemia, a mini symposium on transradial peripheral intervention, and great debates in vascular medicine. Interactive sessions will focus on cases in vascular medicine, complications with vascular interventions, and appropriate -- and inappropriate -- use in vascular intervention.
- Structural Track
A special addition to the Hemodynamics Symposium will focus on the hemodynamics of structural heart intervention, plus tough calls, peculiar findings, and common errors. The track will also feature an imaging symposium, including radiation safety, and a mini symposium on transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
- Congenital Heart Disease Track
One highlight will be a debate on whether pre-mounted stents are the best choice for children weighing seven to 10 kilograms. The track will also feature two “I Blew It!” sessions, plus sessions on imaging safety, new gadgets, and more.
- Quality Improvement Track
Ths all new track on quality improvement will feature sessions on “Best of the Best Abstracts”, how to be a quality and safety champion in the cath lab, payment reform, and much more.
