TRICO 2011 was my second TRICO experience and it did not disappoint. The TRICO course is clearly the best live-demonstration course on the globe. Not for the beginner, but for those with their feet wet into the transradial world this course provides a window into the minds and techniques of international experts from diverse backgrounds and training. The net result is an experience useful for all, participants and faculty included. I was invite to perform a live case this year at the Municipal Hospital, a place that itself was memorable, and with the help of the interactive panel connected by outstanding video and audio feed, successfully demonstrated some Flow-Wire technique and right coronary stenting.
Dr. Patel and his team from Ahmedabad have gone to great efforts to provide hospitality to all his guests and a program second to none. With the new airport terminal and excellent hotel services, travel to this course is easy from outside of India and is an experience all dedicated radialist should consider.
