    6th European Live Summit on Retrograde CTO Revascularization

    Live Cases from the University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland


Chronic total occlusion (CTO) recanalization in addition to angina and dyspnea relief, may provide additional benefits, including avoidance of bypass surgery and enhanced quality of life and survival. To achieve such clinical benefits, the procedure has to be technically successful and complications must be avoided.

Despite major advances in coronary intervention, CTO remains a challenge for many interventional cardiologists. Complex anatomy and lesion characteristics demand a special set of skills for procedural success.

Provided patient selection is appropriate, CTO intervention can confer a variety of benefits including relief of angina, improvement in left ventricular function and reduction in ischemic burden. Procedural success is enhanced by adequate training of staff, by quality control and availability of equipment.

This Summit represents a unique opportunity to meet world leaders in CTO revascularizations during the performance of lives cases, lectures and interactive sessions on recorded cases, all in the fantastic city of Zurich.
