SCAI @ GW-ICC Joint Forum – Great Wall International Congress of Cardiology (GW-ICC) – CTO PCI Technique and Clinical Update

It has become a tradition for world renowned cardiology associations to send delegations to GW-ICC congresses.

Cooperation with these international societies is not limited to their attendance at GW-ICC; GW-ICC also holds reciprocal academic sessions at the annual meetings of these eminent societies, for example GW-ICC @ ACC, GW-ICC @ AHA, and GW @ ESC, to introduce important Chinese academic research.

At the 28th GW-ICC in 2017, the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) held a Joint Forum. A video of one of these 2017 sessions, Challenges of Chronic Total Occlusion, is now available to view on the GW-ICC YouTube channel:

CTO PCI Technique and Clinical Update

Presenter: – Jonathan Hill, Consultant Cardiologist, London Bridge Hospital, King’s College Hospital, London, United Kingdom

Dr Hill discusses:

  • How advanced CTO PCI techniques drive expansion of complex techniques and increase rates of complete vascularization.
  • Advanced CTO PCI techniques and LC Support
  • Achieving near complete revascularization should be the aim of all CTO and complex PCI procedures.

Further information on the 29th GW-ICC, to be held October 11th -14th, 2018, in Beijing, China, is available on the congress website:
