Welcome to my "Paris Blog"
Each spring there is a meeting where some 12,000 cardiologists and others come together to discuss the latest findings in interventional cardiology. The meeting started over 10 years ago to discuss advances in coronary angioplasty. This is the procedure where cardiologists stretch narrowings in the heart arteries using an inflatable balloon. Over the years angioplasty has rapidly developed and we have come to understand the things we need to do to get the best results.
