  CSI Focus PFO, Frankfurt, Germany: Catheter Interventions in Congenital, Structural and Valvar Heart Disease
CSI Focus PFO, Frankfurt, Germany: Catheter Interventions in Congenital, Structural and Valvar Heart Disease

Dear Colleagues,

In October 2016 the FDA finally gave the green light to St. Jude Medical's Amplatzer device for patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure! It is the first device of its kind to be approved in the US but it is likely that others will follow in the near future. PFO-closure has been controversial over the past 10 years but this nod from the FDA makes it one of the most important topics of this year. It is likely to trigger further development, techniques and implementation worldwide and this is the reason we dedicated a full day program to this topic at CSI 2017. The meeting was a great success covering everything there is to know about PFO closure including indication, imaging, device selection, technique and complication management. Live cases formed an important part of this learning experience.

We are currently reviewing which Focus Workshops will run at CSI 2018. If you would like us to focus again on PFO closure, please send us an e-mail at csi-pfo@csi-congress.org. Likewise, let us know if you would like us to plan any other particular topic as a Focus Workshop at CSI 2018, June 27 – 30.

Looking forward to seeing you in Frankfurt,

Horst Sievert, Mario Carminati, Neil Wilson, Shakeel A. Qureshi
