    No silos. No limits.

    When it comes to health, people deserve the best. Yet despite advances, progress is too often slowed. By systems that can’t communicate. By data that gets locked in silos. By clinicians who can’t see the full picture fast enough and patients who feel lost in the system. 


    At Philips, we collaborate on designing innovations to seamlessly bring together people, data and technology for personalized, actionable insights. This results in bringing cardiovascular care professionals and their patients together through the integration of data and targeted information across the care continuum. 


    We aim to deliver seamless cardiovascular care and improved workflows to reduce variation in the standard of care, and to find the optimal pathways for better clinical outcomes, lower costs, and increased patient and staff satisfaction – that’s health with no bounds.

    Attend this session if you want:

    1. To be able to incorporate into your practice the different elements of the SYNTAX II PCI strategy, including the use of physiology and imaging
    2. To appraise the safety of deferral based physiology from DEFINE FLAIR and iFR SWEDEHEART trials
    3. To learn the expected benefits on health economics and patient outcomes derived from incorporating the state-of-the art PCI practices

    Training Village program


    Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of a session to secure your seat

    Join our multiple sessions on:

    • IVUS image interpretation
    • Left Main Complex Case
    • SyncVision co-registration case-based session
    • CTO
    • Devices used for multivessel disease
    • Case-based discussion - Changing treatment from CABG to PCI

    Case Review - Submit your interesting cases and share your experience with peers


    In the Cath Lab, clinical expertise, rapid response and team work all play a critical role in determining patient outcomes. We invite you to come together as a clinical community, review challenging or unusual cases, share your knowledge and techniques, and discuss informally the best ways to manage complications with experts.


    If you have a complicated or interesting case which offers teaching points for enhancing quality care, please register your case to present it and discuss it with peers and experts at our booth during EuroPCR!


    Kindly note that you will be asked to sign an authorization and consent form for your submission as we will not be able to use any case that does not have one.


    Join the Cath Lab of the future!




    At this year’s EuroPCR Philips is presenting an exciting new addition to the booth: The cath lab of the future!

    Proven outcomes.1,2 Superior value.1,3


    Health economic data from the DEFINE FLAIR trial demonstrates an iFR-guided strategy offers reduced costs and improved care compared to an FFR-guided strategy.

    Proven outcomes

    • Validated in more than 4,500 patients1,2
    • Consistent outcomes as with FFR
    • 0.89 cut-point backed by data1,2,4

    Superior value

    • 10% Cost saving per patient
    • 10% reduction in procedure time
    • 90% reduction in patient discomfort1
