Now in its 12th year, Scottsdale Interventional Forum, SIF 2016 will provide attendees the most comprehensive review of the latest advances in heart and vascular medicine. Cardiovascular medicine continues to evolve and change rapidly. This requires a robust commitment to continuing medical education. Consistent with our tradition, SIF 2016 will utilize a world-class faculty who possess a profound understanding of pathophysiologic mechanisms of disease, as well as the most innovative treatment options for those patients afflicted with cardiovascular disease. This extraordinary faculty provides a powerful educational experience for physicians, nurses and allied health professionals. Our educational objectives are accomplished through didactic lectures, taped-case presentations and thought provoking live case transmissions from leading centers and experts throughout the world. For over a decade the unique appeal of this educational approach, as well as an extraordinary faculty has been responsible for the continued growth of the Scottsdale Interventional Forum.
SIF 2016 will include workshops and special symposia covering a broad range of topics. Transcatheter therapies for structural heart disease have evolved rapidly. SIF 2016 will devote live satellite cases from leading centers throughout the world, as well as didactic sessions to important topics such as TAVR, transcatheter mitral valve therapies, left atrial therapeutics and renal denervation, just to name a few.
As complex coronary intervention continues to be an area of great emphasis in clinical practice, dedicated sessions at SIF 2016 will include CTOs, complex multivessel and left main disease and supported PCI utilizing left ventricular assist devices. Detailed reviews of new DES platforms, biodegradable polymers and stents with an emphasis on current appropriate criteria in coronary intervention will also be covered. These important symposia will be conducted by experts in the field in which attendees will have direct access these experts throughout the 4 days of the Forum.
The primary objective of SIF 2016 is to provide attendees the requisite skills to improve bedside management of complex cardiovascular disease and practically apply new innovative technologies in the treatment of the cardiovascular patient in order to improve patient care and procedural outcomes. The rich educational experience and open interaction with a world-class faculty is accomplished against the background of the beautiful desert southwest.
We look forward to seeing you in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona at the 2016 Scottsdale Interventional Forum!
