Counterpulsation therapy - Should we continue to use it?

Chairperson: Simon REDWOOD


To understand the science of mechanical support in the complex coronary patient
To identify which patients are responders to intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation therapy
To discuss real-world experience and outcomes in treating complex PCI procedures
