Czech Republic and Slovakia share their most educational cases: how to approach complex bifurcation cases

With the collaboration of the Czech Interventional Cardiology Association and the Working Group for Interventional Cardiology, Slovak Society of Cardiology

Chairpersons: F. Kovar, M. Mates

Learning Objectives

  • To learn how to plan complex procedures, including PCI of distal left main
  • To understand the role of FFR, IVUS, OCT, rotablation and dedicated stents
  • To differentiate between strategies for stable coronary artery disease and ACS

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Session objectives
  • Case 1: treatment of heavily calcified left main stenosis using rotational atherectomy and dedicated bifurcation stent
  • Case 2: left main embolisation
  • Case 3: unexpectedly complex FFR and IVUS-guided PCI of the left coronary tree
  • Case 4: treatment of critical left main in-stent restenosis in old high-risk patient with ACS
  • Case 5: very late stent malapposition and stent thrombosis in bifurcation of left anterior descending-D1
  • Case 6: a difficult story of a simple bifurcation case
  • Session evaluation and key learnings
