This may be the Red Bull of interventional cardiology sessions, since The Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) and ACC’s Innovation in Intervention: i2 Summit joined forces to form the “SCAI-ACCi2” meeting.
You might need a few energy drinks to keep up with this interventional power pack, which runs concomitantly with ACC.08. Sessions will feature live case transmissions, highlight emerging technologies, provide case reviews on IVUS, left main, CTO, valvular and structural procedures, bifurcation and endovascular procedures, and opinions can be voiced in debates covering COURAGE, PCI versus CABG, DES selection, embolic protection, vulnerable plaque, IIb/IIIa inhibitors, PFO closure for stroke, elective PCI and carotid stenting in asymptomatic patients.
But before your heart starts racing from either the caffeine or in anticipation of all there is to see and do, conference organizers promise to recreate that same intimate feel and collegial interaction of the SCAI meeting.
Just in case, Diagnostic & Invasive Cardiology will help control information overload by streamlining the data for you on our ACC FastPass found at www.DIcardiology.net. ACC FastPass delivers updates on case reviews and debates, keynotes and new technology roll outs before, during and after ACC, and presents it to you in a more manageable package, so you’ll have energy enough to get all of the info you need.
