Overview

Moderator Prof James Spratt will be joined by an expert faculty of Prof José M de la Torre Hernández, Dr Gabriele Luigi Gasparini and Prof Stephane Carlier for an insightful broadcast focusing on the role of Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) in enhancing Left Main (LM) outcomes. This case-based session will provide a strong understanding of the latest evidence supporting the use of IVUS to optimise treatment strategies, share practical insights and key lessons, and educational tools to reach optimal patient outcomes.

Learning objectives

  • The importance of IVUS in the treatment strategy during a LM procedure
  • Understand the recent evidence on Intravascular Imaging
  • How to optimise, through a stepwise systematic approach, a Left Main procedure with the use of Intravascular Imaging

Agenda

  • 2’ – Introduction - James Spratt

Discover the Left Main Academy

Programme overview

A Modern PCI approach to Left Main Bifurcation PCI.

This step-by-step educational journey, created and delivered by top KOLs, connect multiple proficiencies with the aim to achieve better clinical & patient outcomes in the treatment of the Left Main & Bifurcations.

Live or on-demand, learn at your own pace.

What is about

  • On demand education: e-learning modules, clinical cases, expert talks
  • EDUCARE training courses
  • IVUS imaging, lesion preparation and stent strategy optimization for Left Main & Bifurcations

Modules

Module 1

Introduction to the Left Main

CLICK TO ENROL

Description: In this introductory module, Dr. Simon Walsh explains how and why Left Main disease manifests as it does. At the end of this module, you will be able to put current evidence into context for each individual patient to optimize treatment.

Learning objective: Understand the Left Main PCI, exploring the associated diseases and clinical data.

Module 2

Role of IVUS in the Left Main

CLICK TO ENROL

Description: In this module, we will focus on the the pivotal role Intravascular Imaging (IVUS) plays in successful Left Main PCI. Prof. James Spratt will go over the key areas where IVUS can support your PCI procedure, such as planning, lesion preparation and optimizing the stent area to prevent complications.

Learning objective: Evaluate how IVUS can support Left Main PCI with a systematic IVUS 123 approach.

Module 3

Treatment Strategies of the Left Main

COMING SOON

Description: In this module hosted by Dr.Gregor Leibundgut, you will find out more about the importance of stent strategy when treating the Left Main and/or its Bifurcations: the key factors to consider, how to set up for success, optimal stent design characteristics, and the different techniques. After completing this module, you will be able to select the most appropriate stent strategy for each individual patient.

Learning objective: Choose an optimal stent strategy in treating Left Main Bifurcations.

Module 4

Calcium treatment in the Left Main

COMING SOON

Description: In the final module, Prof. James Spratt will guide you through the basics of lesion preparation in Left Main PCI, its importanceand the impact of calcium on mechanical outcomes. You will learn about the different technologies available and how to select the optimal lesion preparation tool in your Left Main PCI.

Learning objective: Prepare the Left Main vessels with the appropriate tools and technologies available.

Let's find out what Dr. Rigger says about the Left Main Academy

Left Main Bifurcation Live Case Series

In this live case series, Prof James Spratt and Dr Thierry Lefèvre will guide us through a progressive and comprehensive educational journey, with live cases from top centers and opeartors across the globe. We are also joined by over, 30 leading clinical experts, giving their perspectives on how Modern Left Main PCI is performed.
