SCAI India Ambassador Ashok Seth, MD, MSCAI, and the Program Scientific Committee have assembled a truly spectacular scientific program for SCAI Seminars—India 2021. Join 29 eminent faculties in the field of interventional cardiology from Europe, United States and Japan for interesting and meaningful debate and discussion on a range of topics, including: 

  • Advancements in coronary imaging
  • Complex left main intervention techniques
  • CTO
  • Haemodynamic support
  • TAVI
  • Mitra Clip
  • Challenging and complicated cases

 

SCAI Faculty

05:00 pm - 05:30 pm

Coronary Imaging

Coronary Imaging

Session B—Debate

Including:

06:00 pm - 06:30 pm

Coronary Imaging
