European Bifurcation Club 2019, EBC 2019 - Barcelona, Spain MEDTRONIC SYMPOSIUM - One stent bifurcation techniques and possible bail out solutions using multimodality imaging Introduction Author: Goran Stankovic, MD, Clinical Center of Serbia, Serbia BIFURCATION EDUCATION IS NEEDED Collaboration between EBC, Visible Heart Lab (VHL) and Medtronic initiated by EBC at 2012 meeting; There is a need to create: – Educational program for fellows and young IC’s, aimed to help understanding bifurcation treatment techniques, complications and outcomes; The idea: – A series of case scenarios, where trainee can learn step-by-step performance of different bifurcation stenting techniques and based on a combination of imaging technologies and computer simulation.
European Bifurcation Club 2019, EBC 2019 - Barcelona, Spain NEWS 1 The Visible Heart Project and the Atlas of Human Cardiac Anatomy Author: Paul A Iaizzo, PhD, University of Minnesota, USA VHL COLLABORATIONS AND SUMMARY The Visible Heart Laboratories has abilities to study perfusion fixed human hearts as well as reanimated large mammalian hearts including. We can uniquely study the device-tissue interfaces while using numerous imaging modalities simultaneously. One can perform optimal and/or sub-optimal (on purpose) without worrying about procedure times, contrast injections, and/or outcomes. We have perform many bifurcation stenting procedures and subsequent performed computational modeling which can be used for 3D printing or generating VR scenes. The free-access website: “The Atlas of Human Cardiac Anatomy” is a unique educational tool.
