  • Recognize different manifestations of patient presentation with carotid disease, acute and chronic DVT, pulmonary embolism, thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms, peripheral artery disease and identify high-risk subsets that would benefit from revascularization
  • Outline the risks and benefits of endovascular and surgical revascularization for patients with CLI
  • List potential complications associated with endovascular treatment of carotid disease, acute and chronic DVT, pulmonary embolism, thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms, and CLI
  • Define success when treating complex PAD
  • Outline the components of a multidisciplinary team for structural, complex coronary, and CLI
  • State the goals and identify the appropriate outcomes when treating end stage PAD and CLI patients
  • Identify and treat patients with complex coronary artery, peripheral vascular, valve, or arrhythmic heart disease
  • Define state-of-the-art management pearls to treat patients with hyperlipidemia, heart failure and structural heart disease
