Advanced Use of Percutaneous Support Devices in Protected PCI and CGS Symposia

Course Description

This course is specifically for physicians familiar with the use of Impella who would like to enhance their knowledge of the appropriate application of hemodynamic support. This course is most applicable for attendees that have a basic level of Impella experience.

Course Objective

This program is geared towards physicians seeking to better understand the use of hemodynamic support in complex patients and the timing of support in patients with acute myocardial infarction with cardiogenic shock (AMI CGS). Participants will learn how to manage challenging patient subsets, such as those with advanced heart failure and depressed LVEF, as well as how to provide optimal hemodynamic support in the AMI setting. Expert faculty will offer insights on patient selection, benefits of hemodynamic support, treatment strategies for complex cases, optimal support strategy and escalation of therapy for AMI CGS and treatment outside the cath lab. The latest clinical data and guidelines for complex, higher-risk procedures and cardiogenic shock indications will also be reviewed.

Date & Location

Saturday, February 18, 2017; 12:00 PM – 4:30 PM
The Omni Shoreham Hotel
Washington DC
