His epidemiological research focuses on health services and outcomes. He is also a high-volume and world-renown coronary operator, performing over 400 percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) per year, mostly from the transradial approach and most with complex anatomies, and is responsible of the MUHC chronic total occlusion (CTO) and Complex Higher-risk but Indicated Procedures (CHIP) program. Dr Rinfret was one of the Canadian pioneers in CTO PCI and has contributed to expand access to the technique in Canada and all around the world through sharing his expertise. He is the lead editor of a textbook on CTO PCI published by Springer in 2015, currently being reviewed for a second edition. He has performed over 1000 CTO PCIs since January 2010, one of the largest volumes in the world, including a large number of retrograde procedures, and pursues a very active teaching program of transradial and CTO PCI techniques in Canada and Europe. He is frequently invited to perform live demonstration in large interventional cardiology meetings and serves as a faculty member in most important international meetings. He is the co-director of the Multi-Level CTO course, a yearly meeting held in Nice, France that attracts over 750 physicians from over 50 countries each year.
