  • Overview

    The performance of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) without a surgical backup has long produced controversy. In recent years, off-site PCI has become more common, and clinical evidence demonstrates comparable outcomes for on-site and off-site procedures. How does this shift allow us to serve a broader patient population? Will guidelines change to reflect some of these new findings? For a look at these questions and more, Dr. Spencer King, president of Saint Joseph's Heart and Vascular Institute in Atlanta, professor of medicine emeritus at Emory University School of Medicine, and a past president of the American College of Cardiology, joins host Dr. Doug Weaver.
