The Clinical Management of Heart Disease organized the V International Course on Complications of Percutaneous Interventional Cardiology

On April 19th and 20th, was held the V International Course on Prevention and Treatment of Complications in Percutaneous Interventional Cardiology led by Dr. Ange, Dr. Cequier and Dr. Jose Antonio Gomez-Hospital.

This is the most important meeting in Spain and one of the largest in the world on the analysis of complications in percutaneous intervention and brought together leading national and international speakers, with over 500 participants from around the state and other countries.

They discussed the indications, technical aspects and the advantages and disadvantages of such interventions, mainly through the analysis and discussion of cases with a special complexity.

The percutaneous coronary intervention is currently the most common type of cardiac procedure, and it allows to treat angina and myocardial infarction without surgery. For its lower aggressiveness and complication rate, it has become the standard treatment of heart disease. Currently, for every patient treated with open surgery (bypass coronary), 8 patients are treated by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty.

the course also focused on the consolidation of percutaneous aortic valve replacement that can treat the stenosis of the aortic valve preventing the use of open surgery. Currently, nearly 1 in 5 valve replacements are already percutaneous, and it is forecasted  that, over the next decade they will increasingly replace open surgery.
