SY01 Consider AUC criteria in Japan
In Japan, for PCI, the importance of ischemic diagnosis recently increased. Accordingly, the clinical significance of PCI's appropriate use criteria are investigated again.
SY02 Imaging in EVT
Conventionally, imaging in EVT mainly consists of angiography. The importance of intravascular imaging was recently indicated. In this study, the clinical significance of imaging for EVT is investigated.
SY03 Endoluminal bypass in the peripheral artery
Last year, in EVT, VIABAHN became usable. In this study, endoluminal bypass using this device is investigated for its efficacy and safety.
SY04 Complication and bailout of TAVI (Case-based)
TAVI may cause critical complications. If bailout management is possible, it can greatly influence the TAVI treatment results. In this study, the complications and bailout management are studied.
SY05 Evolution of CTO-PCI
In recent PCI, the successful treatment rate for CTO is not 100%. In this study, efforts to improve the treatment results are investigated.
SY06 EVT for highly calcified lesions
Highly calcified lesions in EVT area greatly influences EVT success and failure. In this study, treatment of the calcified lesions is investigated.
SY07 Complication and bailout CTO-PCI
CTO-PCI is usually conducted for stable angina pectoris. However, when complications occur, the condition may become severe in many cases. In this study, the bailout management is investigated.
SY08 Stentless PCI: DCA/DCB/ELCA etc.
Since BRS appeared, stentless PCI has gained attention. In this study, treatment results of DCA/DCB/ELCA etc. playing a central role in PCI is investigated.
SY09 Complication and bailout in EVT
Even in EVT, once a complication occurs, lapse into shock is not rare. In this study, bailout management is studied.
SY10 Nightmare of complex PCI/complication and bailout
Even in facilities with rich PCI volume or facilities with relatively less volume, critical complications are not rare. In this study, bailout management is studied.
SY11 DCB vs stent? SFA treatment
The best option for SFA treatment remains unknown. In this study, treatment results in DCB vs stents and future directions are investigated.
SY12 CTA/HeartFlow
Although the importance of FFR was recently established, FFR can be calculated with high reliability in non-invasive CTI. In this study, focusing on the functional evaluation based on coronary arterial CT and its usefulness and pitfalls are studied.
SY13 CAS/CEA vs PCI/CABG - Which is first?
The combination of coronary arterial disease and cervical arterial stenosis is often seen. In this case, the matter which priority is given to the former (PCI/CABG) or the latter (CAS/CEA) is a problem. In this symposium, treatment strategies is discussed with the experts.
SY14 Coronary imaging and physiology
It has been approximately 1 year since the items of functional evaluation for PCI was added to the calculation of reimbursement of medical fees. How does the ischemic evaluation in Japan change? In this session, knowledge of the coronary circulation that can be understood from imaging and physiology is reviewed. Unknown fields of coronary circulation that should be clarified by interventionists and future directions for study are elucidated.
SY15 Discriminated use of DES and DAPT
Six types of DES are currently usable in Japan. There are various opinions about DAPT types and duration in patients at high risk of bleeding. In this study, the matter is investigated.
SY16 Does the angiography-based FFR simulation change the work flow in the cath lab?
To gather evidence of non-pressure-wire-derived physiological assessment in terms of decision-making of treatment strategy in patients with multi-vessel disease (e.g. QFR, FFR-CT).
SY17 Vulnerable patient: an endless debate
If a lesion is unstable and will become responsible for future events, the high-risk lesion may become an indication for PCI. To determine the indication for PCI based on lesion instability but not ischemia, the possibility and usefulness are discussed with future perspectives.
SY18 New rule of catheter intervention in medical care of cerebral apoplexy
PFO closure surgery and closure surgery of the left atrial appendage for preventing recurrent cryptogenic cerebral infarction will be introduced as an intervention in Japan. The field is handled jointly by physicians in the cardiovascular medicine and physicians specializing in cerebral apoplexy. From their individual standpoints, its usefulness, cautions in its introduction, and future perspectives are studied.
SY19 Treatment strategies for SFA complex lesions in drug elution device era
Regarding interventions for shallow femoral arterial lesions, in addition to conventional balloon and bare-metal stents, newly introduced methods include percutaneous graft in 2017, drug-eluting balloon in 2018, and new drug-eluting stent in 2019. As such, innovative treatment methods are anticipated. Conventionally, surgical bypass has been made the first option for TASCIIC/D lesions. With the introduction of new devices for the lesion, how the treatment becomes innovative and future perspectives of each device are discussed.
SY20 Clinical standard for ischemic diagnosis is investigated.
How various modalities are used individually in routine clinical practice and within health insurance treatment are studied. The features and advantages/disadvantages of each modality are clarified. In the overall discussion, which modality is useful for certain case groups is discussed as the first step to create its standard in Japan.
SY21 Cardiovascular disease in women
Sex-based differences in cardiovascular disease has been a worldwide topic. Potentially different manifestations and outcomes of cardiovascular diseases in women will be discussed.
SY22 Treatment strategies for coronary arterial calcified lesions
Strategies for the initial success of PCI and coronary arterial calcified lesions disturbing chronic outcomes are discussed and limitations with device selection and complications are investigated.
SY23 Actual and current situation of AMI in Japan - The importance of registry data is considered
In-hospital mortality in patients with AMI decreased to below 10% but still feature many problems in hospital care and follow-up. It is important to know the current status of ACS in Japan, and we will find regional differences in the emergency medical care system.
SY24 Distal radial approach: a new standard of coronary access?
Recently, PCI by the distal radial arterial approach has become widespread. The approach's merits/demerits, results, and tips and tricks are studied.
SY25 OCT/OFDI for optimal PCI
It was recently clarified that PCI guided by OCT/OFD is not inferior to IVUS guide in terms of clinical results. The merits and demerits of OCT/OFDI-guided PCI are clarified to make them more widely used in routine clinical practice.
SY26 Treatment strategies of instable lesions by intravascular imaging guidance
The intravascular imaging diagnoses enables the classification of unstable plaques such as plaque rupture, erosion, and calcified nodes. Based on actual cases and experiences, diagnostic/treatment strategies are studied.
SY27 SHD heart team session
In SHD intervention, the total heart team is required for preoperative assessment, techniques, and postoperative management. In this session, its indication in each actual case and strategies in each facility are discussed and the actual situation of SHD interventions in Japan is discussed. (Invitation only for facility/team)
OCT/OFD, which use the high resolution and flame rate, enables a detailed evaluation of the coronary arteries and stents by 3D reconstruction. In this study, the clinical usefulness of 3D-OCT/OFDI is discussed and its future possibilities are considered.
SY29 Multi-disciplinary approach to CLI
In critical limb ischemia (CLI), only EVT often cannot treat the extremities. In this session, the possibility of treating the extremities by multiple approaches such as early detection, effective vascular reconstruction, drug treatment, and foot care are studied.
SY30 Approach to CKD patients
It is well known that CKD influences the prognosis of patients with coronary arterial disease. It is extremely important to consider how the perioperative period of PCI in patients with complicated CKD is managed. In this session, strategies for improving prognosis are discussed.
SY31 Hemodynamic assist device: when and how to use?
In addition to IABP and PCPS, IMPELLA recently became usable as a percutaneous circulation assist device. In this study, the timing of introducing IMPELLA and its use combined with PCPS (ECPELLA) are studied.
SY32 MitraClip Taped Case
There have been significant changes in MR therapy at MitraClip clinical sites. These cases will be reviewed in this session.
SY33 Complication & Bailout of TAVR (Lecture)
Although the effectiveness of TAVI has been recognized, it is vital to bailout from situations once complications have occurred. This situation will be discussed in this session.
SY34 Endothelial Shear Stress (ESS) and Plaque Progression
In recent years, it has become clear that Endothelial Shear Stress (ESS) plays a significant role in the progression of arteriosclerosis. The relationship between ESS and plaque progressions will be examined in this session.
SY35 ACS Pathology and Imaging
Even as the mechanisms for ACS have been established pathologically, mechanisms in vivo are being clarified with recent developments in various imaging techniques. This session will feature in-depth discussions on these points.
SY36 Importance of Coronary Artery Disfunctions in the PCI Era
In recent years, a spotlight has been turned on coronary artery dysfunctions following the placement of stents for coronary arteries. This issue will be discussed in-depth in this session.
