Overview

In this session, part of the Transcatheter Interventions Online 2020 programme, an international faculty provide comprehensive update on the latest in indications and classifications, and antegrade and retrograde techniques in CTO.

 

Transcatheter Interventions Online (TIO) aims to educate interventionalists and allied healthcare professionals on the practical implications of the latest clinical data, device selection, and procedural strategies impacting optimum patient care. To further illustrate this, the event will feature a number of practical demonstrations in the form of live cases broadcast from cardiovascular centers of excellence globally, interspersed with presentations and debate sessions.
