About the Conference

CICT would like to welcome you again to Pasadena, CA on July 28-29,2023 to the 16th Congress on Controversies in Interventional Cardiovascular Therapy.
The technological developments and evidence-based research in the field of interventional cardiology have matured tremendously over the last 3 decades. By now, one would think that we have definitive answers to the most common challenges we encounter in patient care.

Well, Think Again!

We still don’t completely agree on how to manage a patient with multi vessel coronary disease, whether FFR-guided PCI adds value, whether CTO PCI increase survival, why intravascular imaging remain underutilized, and when and how to treat valvular heart disease… to name a few!

CICT will continue its tradition in posing the most pressing questions for interventional cardiologists today. It will have world-class sessions, hands-on workshops, faculty debates and more. Challenge us and be challenged yourself to continue and move the field forward!

Our scientific program is interdisciplinary and has been developed by leading cardiology and other specialty experts from around the globe.

Who should attend

The CICT workshops have been designed to meet the educational needs of interventional cardiologists, non-invasive cardiologists and cardiology fellows along with cath lab nurses, technicians and other medical professionals who care for patients undergoing catheter-based cardiovascular interventions.


Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Demonstrate patient-centered, evidence-based decision-making at the individual patient level.
  • Explain the skill set necessary to triage patients with complex coronary and structural heart diseases to surgical vs. endovascular interventions.
  • Discuss cognitive and technical skills to maximize success and reduce complications in complex cardiovascular interventions.
  • Identify best practices to prevent and manage complications in coronary and structural heart disease interventions.
  • Exercise hands-on technical training for percutaneous cardiac structural procedures.

The benefits provided to the attendees are:

  • CME accreditation certificates for speakers, delegates and students
  • Keynote lectures from international faculty
  • Platform for global business and networking opportunities
