Guidelines for Case Submission of the 15th CTO Club Case Competiton

Education requires the sharing of experiences. For this reason, the 15th CTO Club is making a Call for Cases.

The theme is "Complicated or bail-out coronary CTO cases".

Physicians and fellows may submit one of their own clinical cases from the field of CTO.

Each case submitted will be assessed by CTO Club Course Directors. Among submitted cases, four exemplary cases will be selected as "oral presentation" at the Case Competition, and other cases with honorable mention will be selected as "poster presentation" during the 15th CTO Club.

Registration fee will be free for four case presenters at the Case Competition and another poster posting presenters.

The best case of the Case Competition will receive an award and the presenter will be invited to be a CTO Club faculty member in 2015.
