SCAI Bifurcation Club Webinar Series—Procedural Approaches and Techniques for Complex Lesions | SCAI

This webinar series will be held monthly from 6-7 pm ET and moderated by members of the SCAI Bifurcation Club and Dr. Tanveer Rab. Each session will present three 20-minute cases, with an emphasis on imaging. The discussions will be case-based and focus predominantly on procedural approaches and techniques. There are no didactic lectures except for guidelines or technical updates. Register now for the entire series.


Learning Objectives

Upon completion of these activities, participants will be able to:

  • Assess and apply procedural techniques to treat bifurcation lesions.
  • Examine imaging modalities and their best applications.
  • Discuss challenging bifurcation cases.
  • Explain treatment of bifurcation lesions in the presence of cardiogenic shock and STEMI.
