More than 70 cardiologists, specialist nurses and technicians from across Australia and New Zealand were at Fiona Stanley Hospital recently for the 9th Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO) Meeting.

The meeting was an interactive workshop featuring live procedures broadcast from the hospital’s Cath Lab to the audience in the lecture theatre in the Education building.

The audience was able to observe experts from other centres across Australia and New Zealand demonstrate the use of advanced techniques in treating chronic occluded coronary arteries. They were supported by international experts from Hong Kong and Japan.

This was the first time Fiona Stanley’s audio visual system has been used in this way.

There were eight cases performed over two days, along with lectures and case presentations.
