Overview

This session, part of Transcatheter Interventions Online 2023, entitled ‘Balloon Revolution’ focuses on the advancements and potential of balloon-based interventions, featuring This session features presentations and panel discussions covering key topics in the field. The first topic explored is "Intravascular Lithotripsy," sheds light on the innovative use of lithotripsy in treating calcified lesions. The second presentation discusses the potential of drug-coated balloons (DCBs) and raises the question of whether stents are still necessary in certain cases. Lastly, the session explores the role of specialty balloons, highlighting their applications in various complex interventions. Overall, this session provides a comprehensive overview of the evolving landscape of balloon-based therapies, encouraging thought-provoking discussions among experts. 

 

Transcatheter Interventions Online 2023 united renowned international experts to provide an immersive and dynamic platform, ensuring that the global interventional cardiology community stays informed about the most recent advancements in transcatheter treatment approaches. By integrating expert opinions, interactive discussions, presentations, and live cases from institutions across both sides of the Atlantic, TIO 2023 delivered exceptional educational content that supported the latest practices in diagnosis, treatment strategies, and patient care.
