Call for Late-Breaking Trials


Deadline: Late-Breaking Trials must be submitted electronically by December 2, 2019.

Put your Late-Breaking Trials in the spotlight by submitting them for consideration and presentation at CRT 2020. All Late-Breaking Trial submissions must be received by December 2, 2019.

Late-Breaking Trials are innovative, and they provide the latest breakthroughs in clinical science. The studies selected are expected to highlight new improvements in quality of patient care and significantly impact the field of interventional cardiology.


In addition to exposure among colleagues, selected Late-Breaking Trial presenters will be CRT 2020 Adjunct Faculty. As Adjunct Faculty, your CRT 2020 registration fee will be waived.

Submission Details:

CRT 2020 submitted Late-Breaking Trials are expected to contain, at minimum, the study design. Information on the characteristics of the patients enrolled is desirable as well. If available, the major trial results should be summarized, and they will be maintained in a confidential fashion.

  • One application must be submitted for each Late-Breaking Trial.
  • Please include Late-Breaking Trial submissions and supporting files in the format of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, or PDF.
  • Please use this PowerPoint slide template to submit your case.
  • You will have the opportunity to upload more than one file. It may take several minutes for larger files to load.
  • Files must be 20 MB or smaller. Presentations of accepted Late-Breaking Trials prior to CRT 2020 are strictly prohibited.
  • Submissions may not be withdrawn for negative results, and such actions will negatively affect future Late-Breaking applications from both the applicant and the trial sponsor.
  • Presentations of accepted Late-Breaking Trials prior to CRT are strictly embargoed
  • A submission indicated that the trial will be completed by CRT

Presentations: A trial that is accepted for presentation at CRT 2020 can have ONLY a single individual to present the trial. Multiple presenters will not be permitted.
