Symposium Overview

SYMPOSIUM OVERVIEW

Dallas Cardiovascular Innovations (Dallas CVI), now in its fourth year, is recognized as one of the most important education meetings in the Southwest, specializing in interventional cardiovascular therapies. It is designed to not only provide cutting-edge educational content in the areas of coronary, peripheral vascular and structural heart interventionals, but also include updates in the areas of heart failure and cardiac arrhythmia management, cardiovascular pharmacology and prevention.  It showcases the latest advances in cardiovascular innovation committed to improving patient outcomes.  Dallas CVI also fulfills the unique role of bringing practitioners, innovators, and researchers together to drive the next generation of medical innovations.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is designed for Interventional Cardiologists, Clinical Cardiologists, Internists, Residents, Fellows in Training, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists and other Health Care Providers and Investigators who participate in the management of patients with coronary, peripheral and structural cardiovascular diseases.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Define the key criteria to establish the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome and identify appropriate management strategies for each subtype of acute coronary syndrome presentation.
  • Recognize and diagnose patients with peripheral artery disease and identify high-risk subsets with life-style limiting claudication and critical limb ischemia.
  • Identify and treat patients with complex coronary artery, peripheral vascular, valve, or arrhythmic heart disease.
  • Define state-of-the-art management pearls to patients with peripheral vascular disease, coronary artery disease, valvluar heart disease, and arrhythmic heart disease.
