TCT Offers PFO Summit, Nurse, Tech Symposium

August 25, 2010 – There will be special tracks available for nurses and technologists and for the transcatheter treatment of patent foramen ovale (PFO) during the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting Sept. 21-25, 2010, in Washington, D.C.

TCT for Nurses and Technologists

The 19th Annual Cardiovascular Nurse and Technologist Symposium is being expanded this year to one and a half days. The extended track will better provide a forum for discussion of the latest advances in interventional, pharmacologic, structural heart and endovascular strategies for the management of the cardiovascular patient. Content is presented utilizing didactic lectures, case presentations, panel discussions, hands-on cadaver heart workshops and breakout sessions.

New PFO Summit

Co-organized by the PFO Research Foundation and the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CFR), this pre-TCT gathering is designed for physicians, industry, research sponsors, regulators and patient advocates. It will allow an exchange of knowledge and develop initiatives in research, education, definition of care standards and patient registries. Experts with diverse perspectives in PFO science will offer a day of presentations, panel discussions, debates and working groups. This is not a passive continuing medical education meeting, but rather a summit for action to advance patient care. The PFO Summit will take place Monday, Sept. 20, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
