The field of peripheral vascular intervention is rapidly evolving, with new techniques and novel technologies regularly emerging that enable interventional cardiologists to treat vascular patients better and more efficiently. 

Staying current requires time and dedication, so to help you, this track focuses on emerging data, optimal treatment strategies, and the benefits of team-based care in this demanding area of clinical practice. 

I look forward to seeing you in May.

Peripheral Program Track Director

Overview 

Knowledge of advances in endovascular, surgical, and medical management of peripheral vascular disease is paramount 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 to improve quality-of-life and reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

Target Audience and Topics Covered

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 a variety of peripheral vascular diseases.

Learning Objectives 

After attending SCAI 2024 Scientific Sessions, the learner will be able to: 

  • Implement optimal strategies for treating lower extremity peripheral artery disease, including drug-eluting/covered technologies, bioresorbable drug-eluting scaffolds, plaque modification strategies, and intravascular imaging. 
  • Describe the benefits of multidisciplinary, team-based care in the management of patients with peripheral artery disease and carotid artery disease.
  • Describe the various treatment strategies for patients presenting with lower extremity venous disease and pulmonary embolism.
  • Learn about emerging data and novel devices for the invasive treatment of systemic arterial hypertension.
