Forearm Access in Trans-Radial PCI
Program Information

Agenda & Faculty

This webinar discusses challenges in contemporary trans-radial PCI practice and its management. The goals are to discuss the innovative, safe, efficient, and effective application of forearm access for complex PCI with presentation of data, tips, and tricks from experienced operators. Faculty will discuss in detail methods to improve operator and patient safety and to prevent and manage complications.
