Endovascular

This is an important part of CRT, with sessions examining different aspects of endovascular intervention on all four days.

It starts Saturday with CRT Access, which focuses on radial and femoral access for complex percutaneous coronary intervention, alternative access (i.e., subclavian, transseptal, transcaval), and access for critical limb ischemia (CLI).

On Sunday, CRT hosts a primer on endovascular interventions. This daylong session provides information on femoropopliteal arterial disease, arterial disease of the aorta and its branches, pulmonary embolism, optimizing outcomes in challenging procedures, pharmacotherapy and vein management.

The CRT Endovascular & CLI daylong track takes place Monday. Sessions include an overview of CLI, aortoiliac intervention, recanalizing chronic total occlusions for CLI, treating calcified lesions, the many utilities of stent graft intervention, stenting the superficial femoral artery (SFA), and the current state of SFA treatment.

Tuesday wraps up with CRT Stroke and Carotid Intervention, with talks on management of asymptomatic carotid disease, safe access to the carotid artery, safe intracranial angioplasty and how to minimize time to treatment in endovascular therapy, among other subjects.
