The procedures were shown to attendees of this year’s Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual conference in Denver, Colorado. The conference is the world’s largest educational meeting that focuses on interventional cardiovascular medicine and features live case presentations via satellite from universities and medical centers worldwide.
As a global training site for the treatment of CTOs, Edward Hospital was the only community hospital in the world selected to participate in the conference.
