    • International Atomic Energy Agency Can cardiac procedures be graded in complexity and related with dose? L 8.3
    • Educational Objectives 1. Complexity related factors in cardiac interventions 2. Relationship of patient dose with technical and clinical factors 3. Development of complexity index and its utility Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 2
    • factors determining patient’s exposure  adequacy of equipment  fluoroscopy time  cine-angiography time operator’s experience procedure complexity Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 3
    • simple case straightforward right fluoro time: 1 m’ 20 sec total DAP: 102 dGy Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 4
    • difficult case extreme vessel tortuosity fluoro time: 20 m’ total DAP: 1074 dGy Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 5
    • complexity related factors • age • number of vessels treated • occluded vessels • previous CABG • poor Ejection Fraction quantification never proposed Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 6
    • Clinical and technical determinants of the complexity of PTCA procedures. Analysis in relation to fluoroscopy time (Cathet Cardiovasc Intervent 2000; 51:1-9) Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 7

    • clinical factors tested • age • sex • single or multivessel disease • EF • previous CABG no significant correlation with fluoro time or exposure parameters Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 10

    • conclusions (I) • In our experience, fluoroscopy time and total DAP were directly related to technical and not to clinical factors • The weight of these factors can be quantified in order to anticipate the radiation dose needed to treat patients undergoing complex procedures Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 18
    • conclusions (II) • Comparison of different centers and operators for quality control assessment, as well as the definition of appropriate fluoroscopy time and DAP doses, should take into account complexity indexes • Further studies in different institutions are warranted to corroborate this data Radiation Protection in Cardiology Lecture 8.3: Complexity 19
