Online CME: Updates in Interventional Cardiology

Comprehensive Review of Interventional Cardiology is a robust, in-depth continuing medical education program designed to help you keep pace with current guidelines and evidence-based best practices.

Led by Dr. Deepak L. Bhatt, skilled and authoritative clinician-educators cover this expansive field with 34 CME lectures focused on the latest diagnostic and procedural techniques, communication skills, technical ability and more. Key take-home points include:

  • Functional Testing and Imaging. Exercise stress testing and coronary CT angiography are excellent approaches for coronary artery disease evaluation in low- to intermediate-risk patients. In intermediate- to high-risk patients, stress myocardial perfusion imaging, especially quantitative PET, is most effective.
  • Saphenous Vein Grafts – Interventional Concepts. Because of the risk of distal embolization, Saphenous vein graft percutaneous coronary intervention is high risk, and should be performed with distal embolic protection when possible.
  • Alcohol Septal Ablation for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients who meet clinical, anatomic, and hemodynamic indications should proceed to alcohol septal ablation or surgical myectomy in order to improve the heart failure state and improve prognosis.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, you shoule be able to:

  • List the pitfalls of fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurements in coronary catheterization
  • Explain the approach to therapy in patients with stable coronary artery disease
  • Recognize the importance of reperfusion therapy
  • Define cardiogenic shock
  • List the guiding principles for chronic total occlusion percutaneous coronary intervention
  • Outline the clinical indications for renal artery stenting
  • Identify the risk factors for chronic venous disease
  • Discuss the complications related to transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
  • Compare transcatheter versus surgical closure of atrial septal defect
  • Recognize the potential complications of pericardiocentesis
