Join CBSET at the PCR e-Course 2020, a new digital initiative for the interventional cardiovascular community, consisting of 3 days of interactive education & innovation in interventional cardiovascular medicine, where a number of presentations will be concentrating on the latest research in renal denervation.

The upcoming innovative e-Course will be spreading the latest scientific news and best practices all across the globe, on a fully complimentary basis.


Contact us to schedule an e-meeting with the researchers and authors behind some of the most advanced preclinical models for sympathetic denervation in the field.
