To allow participants to review the results from important clinical trials and evidence-based medicine and to translate that information as they globally manage patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, especially as they face complex coronary, carotid, and peripheral arterial cases.
C3 has been specifically designed for physicians who specialize in interventional cardiology, vascular surgery, and interventional radiology, as well as fellows, residents, and other healthcare professionals interested in atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Use cardiovascular risk reduction measures and anticoagulant and antiplatelet therapy in patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
• Apply knowledge about the safety and efficacy of both coronary and peripheral stents to clinical practice.
• Discuss the natural history, pathophysiology, and treatment options for patients with valvular and structural heart defects.
• Summarize the role of thrombus management in treatment of coronary and peripheral arterial interventional treatment.
• Differentiate various imaging techniques and how they may be utilized to examine the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease and guide treatment decisions.
• Apply current therapeutic options for the treatment of femoropopliteal disease and critical limb ischemia to improve quality of life and limb salvage.
• Discuss financial considerations of cardiovascular medicine in various settings
