Course Objective

CCT2022 will be held for 3 days from Thursday, October 27 to Saturday, October 29, 2022. Last year, CCT2021 was held as a virtual meeting by considering the situation of COVID-19 pandemic. At this point, there is a possibility of holding the meeting on site this autumn; therefore, we are planning to host it as a hybrid style meeting of webcast and on site for domestic attendees, and primarily as a virtual meeting for international attendees. However, the meeting format is subject to change to a virtual event for all attendees depending on the situation of COVID-19 pandemic.

The Complex PCI procedure has been rapidly improved about these 20 years and reached its maturity today. Nevertheless, there is a possibility of a drastic change in the Complex PCI procedure in the future, since new improvements are still coming. For bifurcation lesions and calcified lesions, we are becoming able to apply a variety of debulking devices by introducing a high-resolution evaluation method mainly based on OCT. In addition, for CTO lesions, more accurate and effective procedure is now possible because an angiography puncture method by using a new penetration plane view and a puncture method by using IVUS which is specialized to CTO have developed, as well as a wire with more penetration ability has been developed and become available. In CCT2022, we aim to progress the level of complex PCI procedure worldwide by presenting all the way from educational and basic techniques to these updated knowledge and procedures.

We sincerely hope the situation of COVID-19 pandemic settles down in autumn, 2022 so that we are able to see many of you on site or on the web. Your active participation is very much appreciated.
