Wrist Angioplasty Training Sessions at TCT 2010
Radial session overflows into hallway at last year's TCTWe just posted a comprehensive listing of the various transradial sessions, symposia and training sessions being held at next week's Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting, being held in Washington DC. Anyone who attended last year's afternoon symposium might remember the scene in this photo. A standard break-out conference room, designed to seat around 130 people, overflowed into the corridor before the sessions even began. A second room quickly was added, complete with a video and audio feed, but the crowd of almost 400 cardiologists continued to overflow into the hallway.

Interventionalists have been hearing about the decreased complications, better outcomes and increased patient comfort with the wrist approach and are eager for more information. SCAI is in fact sponsoring a one-day transradial course in Boston on November 5.

So make sure to register for the various TCT transradial events and get there early This year's major half-day session is on Thursday morning, from 8am-noon, in Room 145AB. Terumo Interventional Systems is also conducting one-hour workshops on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the Training Pavilion section, which is now located inside the Exhibit Hall, near their booth #2066, and hosting a Friday evening dinner satellite symposium.

Get all the details at Angioplasty.Org's Transradial Angioplasty at TCT 2010 -- we've also provided a printer-friendly version of the schedule.
