After the plain-old balloon angioplasty, the introduction of bare-metal and drug-eluting stents, does the advent of bio-resorbable scaffolds (BRS) represent a revolution in interventional cardiology?
The course aims to answer the following questions:
• WHAT are we talking about? (BRS technology)
• WHY should I use BRS? (Therapy principles and proven advantages)
• WHERE should I use BRS? (In which patients and which lesions)
• HOW should I use BRS? (Technique of implantation)
Radial access is generally very simple, but sometimes it can be more challenging. Watch these videos to become more confident and improve your performance in this technique. The course follows a logical sequence, from patient selection, to puncture and navigation, to ostia vessel cannulation; but it is also possible to jump straight to the section that is most relevant to your immediate need.
