CSI Live features expert operators in the field of congenital, structural and valvar heart disease interventions - live from their cath-lab.

In the first episode of this series, we will be transmitting live cases from CardioVascular Center CVC in Frankfurt, Germany. Prof. Horst Sievert will demonstrate step-by-step cases and discuss practical tips and tricks with our panel of experts from all over the world. The virtual session will be interactive and offer audience engagement with unfiltered reality and real-time decision-making. Registered participants will be able to join us live throughout the day or view individual cases on demand after the live event.
