Walnut Hill Medical Center hosts live streamed cases for the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference for the second year
On October 13, Dr. Tony Das, a nationally recognized cardiologist in peripheral vascular disease therapy with expertise in (CTO) recanalization and new devices, performed streamed live cases for the second year in a row from Walnut Hill Medical Center (WHMC). The complex cases were streamed to the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference in San Francisco, California on Tuesday, October 13, 2015. This annual conference, held October 11-15, 2015, drew over 10, 000 physicians from around the world to learn innovative techniques and therapies for treating vascular disease to improve patient care.
The interactive conference included an expert panel of physicians in San Francisco who provided interactive commentary during the procedures. “As a hospital that has only been open for a year and a half, we are excited to be able to use our state of the art technology for the second year in a row in order to create an opportunity for physicians across the country to interact and share their techniques with each other,” Cory Countryman, CEO of WHMC.
TCT is the world’s largest educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine. For over 25 years, TCT has been the center of cutting-edge educational content, showcasing the latest advances in current therapies and clinical research. This symposium is designed for interventional cardiologists, radiologists, clinical cardiologists, basic scientists, vascular medicine specialists, cardiac and vascular surgeons, nurse practitioners, cath lab technicians, and other healthcare professionals with a special interest in the field of interventional and vascular medicine.
“Leading a multispecialty team of doctors including cardiologists and radiologists, Ken Saland, Tulio Diaz, Danny Chan, Jaryd Stein and guest operator Dr. John Rundback to perform and transmit these complex live cases from Walnut Hill Medical Center to physician colleagues at the TCT Conference was an amazing opportunity that is a testimony to the collaboration that exists at WHMC,” said Dr. Tony Das. “At WHMC, the goal is to focus on innovation and collaboration amongst specialties and I am excited that we had a facility that was able to fulfill this mission.”
