C3 Meeting in Orlando, USA

Following our maiden transmission of percutaneous coronary intervention at the world’s largest interventional cardiology meeting – EuroPCR 2017 – in Paris, France, NUHCS once again successfully transmitted a ‘live’ case demonstration at the C3 meeting held in Orlando, USA on 28 June 2017.

Led by Prof. Tan Huay Cheem, Director, NUHCS and Asst. Prof. Edgar Tay, Senior Consultant, Department of Cardiology, our team performed a complex rotational atherectomy and stenting procedure which was well-received by approximately 1,200 audience members. Although the transmission was carried out in the late evening due to the difference in time zones, our team had an enriching experience working together to create another milestone in the interventional cardiology history of NUHCS.
