About this event

  • Date and time Tue 28 Mar 2023 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Cardiology

Join this webinar for a deep dive into the clinical application of coronary physiology in the cath lab, aiming to provide interventional fellows with a greater understanding of the concepts and potential pitfalls of in-lab physiology across a breadth of clinical scenarios. Learn to interpret invasive physiology in the cath lab, the physiology in different clinical scenarios, basic principles of non-wire-based physiology and develop critical thinking about physiology in left main disease.  

Participants will be able to:

  • Learn about concepts of Physiology in ACS, left main disease and serial lesions
  • Appreciate the presence and ability to test for coronary microvascular dysfunction
  • Increase awareness of non-wire-based physiology in the cath lab

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
