The Power of Big Data for PCI in Bifurcation Treatment Practice


Saturday, October 17, 2020
7:00 AM - 8:00 AM

  • Review cases with bifurcation lesions, Medina class 1.1.1, will discuss lesions/vessel morphology and treatment strategy, including provisional stenting with one and two stent techniques; and frequency of changing initial strategy and key considerations.
  • How to optimize bifurcation technique: What have we learned from 4,395 patients with bifurcation lesions treated with contemporary DES? Look at the value of large, real-world data for PCI practice, the penetration of radial access and expedited and same day discharge in complex PCIs worldwide.
