MedShr and CRF collaboration to launch at Chronic Total Occlusion Summit 2018!

We’re excited to announce a new collaboration with the Cardiovascular Research Foundation, which will be launched at the CTO Summit 2018 in New York in February!

The CTO Summit Live Case Course brings together leaders in the fields of CTO intervention between 15-16th February in New York.

  • First hand knowledge through live cases
  • Tips and tricks for CTO PCI and complete revascularization
  • Newest technology that applies to CTO PCI and all PCI

Delegates can connect with colleagues and cardiologists interesting in CTO before, during and after the meeting in the CRF – Chronic Total Occlusion Summit 2018 Group on MedShr. The group includes CTO cases from the conference and you can share and discuss your own cases.

CRF has partnered with MedShr to support case discussion, and to move this away from Twitter, Facebook and other open social media channels. While these are convenient, they are not private, HIPAA or GMC compliant. There are even risks with WhatsApp groups, because although the messaging is secure, shared images are stored in the user’s phone photo library.

MedShr is the private, professional network for verified medical professionals to discuss their clinical cases. It allows you to share knowledge in a safe and compliant way. MedShr is growing rapidly with over 450,000 members in 180 countries, including 30,000 Cardiologists.

Take a look at the cases in the CRF – Chronic Total Occlusion Summit 2018 Group on MedShr and share your views on strategy and techniques:

A 75 year old man presented with a NSTEMI and lateral ST depression on ECG. He is a non-diabetic ex-smoker with hypertension.
He has declined CABG. Obviously surgery is the preferred option but, in a patient who has declined surgery, which CTO would you attempt first?
How would you approach this double CTO case?

Join the discussion!
