CTO Club

 Course Objectives

Although it is said that PCI technology for CTO lesions has matured, not all problems have been solved yet. Even now, guidewires, microcatheters, and other devices targeting CTO lesions continue to be developed. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us in trying our best to become more proficient with these developing devices in order to further improve our success rates.

While we felt the benefits of online meetings at a time when it was difficult to hold live meetings due to COVID-19, we were reminded that we are able to have more active discussions by watching live case procedures together on the same screen in the same venue. Unless circumstances change, the next CTO Club will be held on-site on June 21-22, 2024.

We hope that CTO Club will become a source of useful information for CTO-PCI. We look forward to seeing you at the 24th CTO Club in Nagoya.
