The 2016 San Diego Cardiovascular Interventions Course will focus on disseminating the knowledge and evidence-based data regarding new therapies and techniques for the treatment of high-risk patients with complex cardiovascular disease. These new therapeutic modalities include the use of robotic technology for enhancing precision and physician safety. Additionally, new approaches toward patients with chronic total occlusions, left main and multivessel disease, left ventricular dysfunction requiring hemodynamic support, and severe valvular heart disease will be presented. The integration of robotic PCI, OCT, FFR and IVUS in contemporary interventional medicine will be particularly highlighted. SDCI 2016 will feature unique live cases and an international faculty of experts who will present their data and share their expertise.

I hope that you will join me in sunny San Diego for the 2nd Annual San Diego Cardiovascular Interventions Symposium!
