  • Advanced Coronary Angiography

    Description:
    Coronary angiography is probably the most critical aspect of cardiac catheterization and is required in multiple clinical settings. Patients may present with stable chest pain syndromes, acute coronary syndromes, or life-threatening myocardial infarction, with other cardiac abnormalities such as valvular heart disease, or with other non-cardiac conditions requiring knowledge of coronary anatomy for safe management.

  • Complications of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention – PCI

    Description:
    Percutaneous coronary interventions are life-saving methods for many patients presenting with coronary or cardiac disease. Meticulous technique and attention to detail are of utmost importance. Many patients present with complex anatomy, difficult clinical scenarios, or challenging problems. In this lecture, Dr. Ragosta describes the risk factors, complications, and therapeutic responses that can occur during PCI.

  • Aortic Stenosis

    Description:
    This lecture covers the large and complex topic of aortic stenosis. In this lecture, Dr. Ragosta discusses the natural history of the disease, typical clinical and hemodynamic findings, and cath lab management of patients with aortic stenosis. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • Aorto-Ostial and Bifurcation Lesions

    Description:
    Percutaneous coronary intervention involves a wide range of complexity, from relatively straightforward Type A lesions in a C-shaped right coronary artery to much more complex anatomy. Ostial lesions and bifurcation lesions remain subsets that continue to challenge current interventional strategies and that can have increased risks of subacute closure and/or restenosis. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • Aortography and Ventriculography

    Description:
    Aortography and ventriculography are more specialized imaging techniques used in the cardiac catheterization laboratory for specific diagnoses and for specific indications. Ventriculography is an important diagnostic imaging modality to assess left ventricular function, regional wall motion abnormalities, severity of mitral regurgitation, certain congenital and shunt conditions such as ventricular septal defect.

  • Intravascular Ultrasound

    Description:
    Intravascular ultrasound plays an important role in the evaluation and management of coronary heart disease in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Using IVUS the operator can identify arterial size, structure, pathology, and can make interpretations regarding the effectiveness of coronary intervention.

  • Vascular Access for Radial, Brachial, Internal Jugular, and Other Sites

    Description:
    In modern interventional cardiology, the central circulation is accessed for many reasons, ranging from coronary imaging and intervention, to hemodynamic measurement, myocardial biopsy, valvular interventional procedures, diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease, and multiple other indications.
