Abiomed Launches CAMP PCI Virtual Physician Education Program
June 16, 2020—Abiomed announced the launch of the Coronary Artery & Myocardial Protected Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (CAMP PCI) digital education platform.
According to the company, CAMP PCI is intended to improve patient outcomes and quality of life with supported high-risk PCI by utilizing best practices, techniques, and technologies to enable safer, more effective and complete revascularization. CAMP PCI’s first live virtual training took place on June 5 and was attended by invited physicians from North America and Europe.
CAMP PCI uses live virtual observerships and proctorships from leading interventional cardiologists, as well as educational modules designed for all levels of clinical expertise. The curriculum covers topics such as access and closure technology optimization, advanced imaging, therapeutic best practices for coronary artery disease, and use of the company's Impella hemodynamic support in appropriately selected high-risk patients to achieve safe and complete revascularization.
Jeffrey W. Moses, MD, added, “The mission of CAMP PCI is to develop experts who can share best practices with colleagues around arterial access and closure and complex and high-risk PCI. As we continue to adopt innovative techniques and technologies, we see better outcomes, reduced mortality, and improved longevity of our patients.” Dr. Moses is Director, Interventional Cardiovascular Therapeutics at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in New York, New York.
