Upcoming events

Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania share their most educational cases: complications in calcified lesions PCI. What can we learn?

With the collaboration of the Estonian Working Group in Interventional Cardiology, the Working Group on Interventional Cardiology of the Latvian Society of Cardiology and the Lithuanian Society of Cardiology

Chairpersons: J. Eha, I. Kumsars, R. Unikas

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the challenges that might be encountered during PCI on complex calcified lesions
  • To teach how to manage complications during intervention in calcified lesions
  • To learn how to prevent complications

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Session presentation
  • Session objectives
  • Case 1: complex PCI of heavily calcified left main and left anterior descending lesion, complicated by occlusive dissection after predilatation
  • Case 2: Perforation of common femoral artery during elective PCI
  • Case 3: complex PCI of heavily calcified left anterior descending lesion
  • Case 4: Calcific left anterior descending lesion angioplasty with major rupture (and re-rupture) and hemopericardium
