CVI 2024 in Denver, CO July 18-20, 2024

Cardiovascular Innovations is a world-class meeting focused on state-of-the-art therapy for peripheral, coronary, and structural heart disease.

CVI is designed to meet the needs of cardiologists, surgeons, internists, trainees, investigators, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and allied health care staff who participate in the care of patients with coronary, peripheral, and structural cardiovascular diseases. The focus of the conference is on innovative health care solutions for these patients.

CVI has five tracks:

  • Coronary
  • Structural Heart
  • Peripheral
  • Interventional Heart Failure (New!)
  • Aortic (New!)

Over 200 esteemed faculty will share case-based presentations for practical learning in an interactive forum.

"Podiatry and Vascular Medicine are very closely intertwined and it was a wonderful learning experience to learn as a student from a non-podiatric standpoint and I think the opposite could be said for other specialties as well."

2023 Attendee

"I really enjoyed the TED talk style template of the conference. It’s allowed for an amazing blend of various cases along with key note speakers. Additionally, the opportunity for hands on simulation with the ICE catheter was an amazing opportunity."

2023 Attendee

“Used these tips today for a case with radial entrapment, great to have learned these techniques @cvinnovations #RadialFirst”

Punag Divanji, MD
