Challenging Scenarios in the Cath Lab
This activity covers a series challenging cath lab scenarios. The faculty will review the evidence base that guides our decision-making and demonstrate through cases the nuances of applying data to real-life patients, interpreting advanced invasive diagnostic testing, and optimizing interventional procedures.
Faculty and Program

Moderator: Sohah Iqbal, MD, FSCAI
Q&A Moderator: Roxana Mehran, MD, MSCAI 

•    INOCA: Should Microvascular Testing Be Routine?, Nathaniel Rosso Smilowitz, MD, FSCAI
•    Nonatherosclerotic ACS, Jennifer A. Tremmel, MD, FSCAI
•    Out-of-Hospital Arrest: To Cath or Not to Cath, Timothy D. Henry, MD, MSCAI
•    Complete Revascularization in AMI: One-Stop Fix or Wait a Few Days!, Natalia Pinilla, MD, MSc

Learning Objectives
After completing this activity, participants should be able to: 
  1. Define ischemia and non-obstructive coronary artery disease (INOCA) and the optimal setting for microvascular testing.
  2. Review the role of intravascular imaging and adjunctive non-invasive imaging in non-atherothrombotic coronary events.
  3. Recognize prognostic indicators of a good-survival potential for patients who present with out-of-hospital arrest.
  4. Define the role of the cath lab, including ECPR, neuroprotective hypothermia, and PCI in patients with out-of-hospital arrest.
  5. Compare the pros and cons of completing revascularization in one procedure vs prior to discharge.
