Intracoronary Guidance in Complex PCI

Simple Education essential guides Intracoronary Guidance in Complex PCI is the premier international course focusing on intracoronary guidance of procedures during Complex PCI. The course is run by leading and world renowned international faculty. This is the first course specialising in the use of intracoronary guidance in complex PCI, and builds for the experienced coronary interventionist on  7 years of courses which have been run, and quickly established as the leading global interventional course in state-of-the-art coronary physiology and intracoronary imaging. 

This Intracoronary Guidance in Complex PCI course provides all you need to know to understand about the use of intra coronary physiology and imaging to support complex PCI.  The courses is composed of several session including multiple cases presentations, live cases, and interactive learning sessions. 

We want you to get the most from the time you have taken to attend our course and have created 3 easy steps to ensure you are well prepared for the course.

An online teaching resource, the Simple Education application, will give you access to video content from the talks, in addition to a raft of other online educational and learning resources which continue your learning experience and connect you with the interventional community after the course finishes.

Intracoronary Guidance in Complex PCI provides all you need to know to understand how to implement intracoronary guidance using physiology and imaging into complex PCI cases.
