COMPLEX PCI SOLUTIONS
An instant guide to complex PCI procedures for clinicians
Complex PCI Solutions app was developed as a collaboration between the technology company studioand and Dr. Boccuzzi, Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at San Giovanni Bosco Hospital, Turin, Italy.
Complex PCI Solutions app provides information specific for a complex PCI scenario, quickly and simply. This will help in the planning of and performing Complex PCI case. The application navigates the user through important aspects of PCI complex procedures and in particular material compatibility, which is vital for a successful Complex PCI procedure.
The app logically steps through the possible combinations to give the user specific information needed to perform the procedure. The possible combination of material compatibility will be classified as:
- Not possible (due to size material)
- Possible on the basis of operator experience. This last option will help based on our group experience the operator in particular and rare scenarios.
Success of a Complex PCI procedure is based on perfect Knowledge of all material, choosing the correct combination. Similarly, material differ in outer and inner sizes.
Users can now familiarize themselves with important design information about material; they can also select the material and find out which will fit better during a PCI complex procedure.
The app can be used to plan a case and confirm suitability for this procedure and reduces the need to trawl through vast amounts of literature to find information specific to the clinical scenario. The information is also available without the need for an internet connection.
At the heart of the idea is education that is free to use. It is hoped that the App will encourage users to contribute tips, tricks and feedback so that we can continue to develop the app.
