Peripheral | SCAI


Join Me in Phoenix

The field of peripheral intervention is rapidly involving! I can’t wait to see continued innovation in the approach to lower extremity arterial disease as well as novel therapies for pulmonary embolism and the interventional management of hypertension.

Knowledge of advances in endovascular, surgical, and medical management of peripheral vascular disease, is of paramount importance to the modern interventional cardiologist. 

Whether treating peripheral artery disease, venous disease, pulmonary embolism, or uncontrolled hypertension with renal denervation, this track covers the rapidly evolving, minimally invasive endovascular methods that enable the interventional cardiologist to deliver comprehensive cardiovascular management of patients for the preservation of limb and life.  

Target Audience  

Appealing to trainees, early-career physicians, and experienced practitioners, this track includes the following: 

  • Expert case-based reviews of endovascular techniques  
  • Coverage of new data and guidelines  
  • Emerging techniques and devices  
  • Expert-led live cases dealing with different pathology and challenges   

Learning Objectives 

After attending SCAI Scientific Sessions, the learner will be able to:  

  • Implement optimal strategies for treating SFA Popliteal disease, including drug-eluting/covered technologies, scaffolds, debulking strategies, and intravascular imaging.  
  • Identify the disparities in care for patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI/CLTI) and how to address these better by taking a multidisciplinary approach to optimizing outcomes and enhancing patient care.
  • Describe the various treatment strategies for patients presenting with venothromboembolic disease and how best to manage these patients. 
  • Describe evolving treatment paradigms for the management of intermediate and high-risk pulmonary embolism.  
  • Learn about emerging data and novel devices for the invasive treatment of systemic arterial hypertension.

Topics Covered 

The topics covered in this track will help you to stay contemporary with interventional practice and improve patient outcomes.  Whether it is how you address a complex procedure, incorporate a new way to use equipment currently available in your lab, or learn about a new treatment in the pipeline.
