As the number of Americans at increased risk of heart disease continues to grow, interventional cardiologists are treating increasingly complex cases of CAD, including patients with complex anatomic lesions, as well as those with advanced age, frailty, and a range of comorbidities.
Given the procedural complexity associated with such cases and the increased risk of adverse patient outcomes, how do we as interventional cardiologists identify and secure the best possible treatment for our patients?
At this difficult time, when we are unable to meet in person, this series of 6 webinars from SCAI is an opportunity for us to come together for an hour every few weeks to explore in depth different aspects of this subject, first covered in the SCAI Position Statement on Optimal PCI Therapy for Complex CAD, including:
- Objectively assessing patient risk.
- Utilizing the CAD HEART team.
- Reviewing imaging modalities to identify complex physiology and diagnose accurately.
- Discussing procedural techniques for complex lesions and anatomy.
- Evaluating therapeutic strategies for patients with multiple comorbidities.
- Comparing patients who are candidates for ambulatory surgical centers versus hospitals.
