Scottsdale Interventional Forum (SIF) is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. Over the past ten years, the unique appeal and extraordinary faculty of SIF have led to the Forum’s growth, which now includes international participation in attendees and faculty as well as live case transmissions.
The primary objective of SIF 2014 is to provide attendees the most comprehensive review of the latest technological advances in cardiovascular medicine using a case-based approach. As in the past, a world-class faculty will provide a review of the most current published literature on pathophysiologic mechanisms of cardiovascular disease along with the newest and most innovative treatment options. Multiple live cases broadcast from leading centers throughout the U.S. and Europe will provide the practical application of what was debated in the Forum’s didactic sessions.
SIF 2014 will include a number of workshops and symposia covering device selection and management of CTOs, complex bifurcations, left main disease and other complex coronary subsets. The coronary sessions will also include a detailed review of new DES platforms ranging from those devices with durable or biodegradable polymers to those DES which are built on a completely biodegradable platform. The sessions will include a review of adjunctive coronary imaging, coronary physiology, pharmacologic therapies, hemodynamic support and appropriateness criteria.
Given the rapid evolution of transcatheter therapies for structural heart disease, SIF 2014 will devote a large segment of the didactic sessions and live cases to transcatheter aortic valve therapies, percutaneous mitral therapies, left atrial therapeutics and renal denervation. A review of treatments directed at PFOs and other septal defects will also be included.
In summary, the primary objectives of SIF 2014 are to provide a rich educational experience, interaction with a world-class faculty and exposure to the latest cardiovascular technologies and treatment options.
We look forward to seeing you in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona at the 2014 Scottsdale Interventional Forum!
Sincerely, SIF Symposium Directors
