C3 2019: Highlights from the 15th annual meeting

Rajesh Dave (Camp Hill, USA) talks to iWounds News about his highlights from the 15th annual C3 conference, which included a special session on the paclitaxel controversy.

Dave talks about the “journey of 15 years” and how the meeting started with “an idea that we create something very special and unique” that “fills the gap between the science being produced and the lack of application of that science into clinical practice”.

Dave also discusses the live case education sessions at C3, which covered a range of specific areas including coronary PCI as well a variety of dedicated endovascular sessions for both interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons. Dave also outlines why the use of live cases are such an important teaching tool.
