The Failure Analysis Advisory Council brings together two groups to focus on improving safety through failure analysis in catheter based intervention (CBI) in the human vascular system:  Medical Technology industry experts and key opinion leaders in all areas of vascular intervention (Cardiology, Vascular Surgery, Radiology and Neurosurgery). Physician leaders present their worst complications and opine as to how and why they occurred in a confidential, protected environment with the goal of developing ideas for possible future avoidance. FAAC is a "by invitation only" meeting.
