Dr. Navin Kapur Discusses pMCS devices at CHIP Course

As part of the “CHIP: Hemodynamic Support and Complex PCI” event, Dr. Navin Kapur from Tufts Medical Center discussed percutaneous devices for mechanical circulatory support, demonstrating a patient case with advanced congestive heart failure and multi-vessel coronary artery disease. Dr. Kapur noted that less than 20% of patients with congestive heart failure are evaluated for ischemic heart disease. Dr. Kapur’s patient was evaluated with thallium testing, which revealed viable myocardiaum appropriate for revascularization. Dr. Kapur discussed this case in terms of the hemodynamic support equation, which consists of circulatory support, ventricular support and coronary perfusion, as detailed below:mcsContinue readingDr. Navin Kapur Discusses pMCS devices at CHIP Course

Dr. Jeff Moses Illustrates Typical High-Risk Patient at CHIP Course

Nearly 100 interventional and clinical cardiologists from around the country gathered in Fort Lauderdale to collaborate and watch presentations and case reviews from leading physicians in the industry. The course, “CHIP: Hemodynamic Support and Complex PCI” taking place on January 23-24, 2016, was hosted by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation and was organized by leading interventional cardiologists in the field: Drs. Ajay Kirtane, Marty Leon, and Jeffrey Moses from New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, and Dr. John Lasala from Washington University School of Medicine.[caption id="attachment_519" align="alignright" width="225"]Breakout workshops included lessons with the hemodynamic simulator, large bore closure training/simulator, chronic total occlusion (CTO) simulation, and adjunctive devices.
