CTO PCI: Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

Coronary CTO PCI is all about challenging the conventional interventional techniques. It is about getting out of your comfort zone and wiring the impossible septal or epicardial, intentionally knuckling a wire and dissecting a vessel. In this webinar, faculty discuss tips and tricks to get comfortable with these unconventional techniques. Master operators will discuss their most difficult cases and the lessons they have learned. Join us. Get out of your comfort zone and advance your skillset to the next level.
