Invitation

Dear PCI and CTO enthusiasts / Dear friends,

We are excited to announce the fourth CHIPSTAR Course during the legendary Swiss CTO Summit & CHIP Summit 2023.

The course is designed to support the continued education of interventional cardiologists who have started or have recently set up a program for the treatment of chronic total occlusions (CTO) and complex high-risk indicated PCI (CHIP). We address interventional cardiologists who want to improve and extend their interventional skills and knowledge in the field of CTO and CHIP. All lectures are given by renowned experts drawn from the interventional faculty. They cover in depth all the aspects of complex PCI, from the basics to the latest developments.

To allow full interaction and ensure training time on the simulators, the course will be open to a maximum number of 24 attendees.

Please register early as places are limited !
