    It was a pleasure seeing those of you who attended ACC. The WIN lunch symposium was a big success and the WIN committee meeting very productive. Below is the latest bi-weekly email regarding the happenings at WIN. This email serves to provide you with updated information on events, news and opportunities through WIN, and I hope you will find it helpful.

    • Breaking News - WIN leaders Dr. Roxana Mehran, MD, FSCAI and Kimberly A. Skelding, MD, FSCAI, represent WIN on the advisory board for the TransRadial Education and Therapy (TREAT) initiative, a cardiac safety critical path initiative under the oversight of the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) in conjunction with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Office of Women's Health. The initiative kicked off in March of 2011, and the first stage of TREAT will be the Study of Access site For Enhancing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for Women (SAFE PCI for Women), a prospective multicenter randomized trial of femoral vs. radial access in 2,000 women undergoing PCI. This will be a breakthrough study, and WIN looks foward to sharing more information with you as it becomes available. For more information about TREAT, visit www.cardiac-safety.org or pick up the latest issue of SCAI News and Highlights.
