The recanalization of coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) has become an essential procedure to treat symptomatic patients with ischemia or heart failure. It is a growing and constantly evolving discipline, allowing us to improve our daily practice in percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI).
Learning or reviewing the basics, tips & tricks, and mastering CTO techniques is key to manage complex coronary patients. More and more interventional cardiologists are eager to develop CTO PCI programs in their CathLabs.
Strong of our digital experience last year, the Course Directors have decided to organize an exclusive and hybrid event on July 1stand 2nd this year: face-to-face exchanges in Nice and digital interaction for online participants!
Traveling worldwide will still be complicated in 2021, our objective is to involve worldwide centers for live cases transmission, in order to gather the CTO community despite the health crisis, and propose a tailored agenda for physical attendees and dynamic sessions for online audience.
This year exceptionally, the ML CTO 2021 program will be a 2-day multi-level format, through 3 daily short sessions adapted to your working day schedules: early morning – lunch break and afterwork time.
Each session will be live broadcast and structured around cases performed by national and international experts, in a continuing opened interactive discussion whether you are present in Nice or connected online.
If you participate face-to-face, (joining us in Nice), a dedicated program will be offered to you including technical workshops, private clinical sessions, symposia and hands-on space to foster face-to-face and tailored interaction with the faculty members and the sponsors.
We keep innovating! Our friends from North America will unfortunately not be able to join us in Nice.
This is why we’ve created an exceptional US HUBspot, chairing by Dr. Stephan Rinfret and Dr. William Nicholson at Emory Heart Center (Atlanta, US).
Indeed, we will welcome our USA faculty members in several live cases, and exchanging live from a TV studio set up Emory, connected with the venue in Nice.
2020 has allowed us to create the ML CTO Academy, scientific and educational association.
Discover our reshaped website, presenting the Academy and the ML CTO Course, and access to on demand presentations, live broadcast, the virtual exhibition hall with our partners and many surprises!
We look forward to seeing you on July 1st & 2ndin Nice or behind your screens, and we truly hope this ML CTO edition will meet all of your expectations.
Dr Alexandre Avran, Dr Kambis Mashaeykhi and Dr Stéphane Rinfret,
ML CTO co-Directors
