08.00   BTK and CLI: how to succeed?
    Moderators: P. Schneider, M. Fusaro, F. Airoldi, E. Puras Mallagray

08.00   Developing concepts
    08.00   What do we really know about pedal angiosomes? When is the collateral circulation adequate to heal the foot through indirect revascularization and how do we know when we have done enough? V. Alexandrescu
    08.07   The first commandment of angioplasty for CLI: respect the “landing zone”, R. Ferraresi
    08.14   Pedal angioplasty: in which cases does it help and when is it too risky? F. Airoldi
    08.21   Discussion

08.26   New tools
    08.26   Tools and options for crossing long tibial occlusions, J. Brunet
    08.33   Dedicated, self-expanding, drug eluting stent for the BTK  arteries: the Stentys device and 6 month trial results, K. Deloose

    09.16   Discussion

09.20   Next steps
    09.20   What evidence do we have for an “endo first” approach to CLI? Is it good marketing or good science? P. Schneider
