STEMI

Here you will find all the latest content on ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

Treating STEMI brings into play a series of clinical and organizational protocols in constant evolution. Today, patients presenting with STEMI are best treated by early reperfusion strategies of which primary PCI is the preferred method. Keep up-to-date on the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, advances in imaging techniques and the use of invasive imaging and functional assessment. Tools, devices and techniques as well as complications, such as the different types of vascular access or bleeding risk can be found here as well…

EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Coronary Interventions

20 May 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

From the standpoint of 40 years of angioplasty, 20 years of physiological assessment and emerging data on a variety of topics, J. Byrne and T. Johnson review data published at EuroPCR 2017. Interest remains intense concerning bioresorbable stents (BRS) with ongoing international trials and whether evolving new devices and techniques will answer the problem of thrombosis. Complex interventions such as CTO showed interesting data and the evolution in our use of iFR or FFR continues to demonstrate the role innovation plays in our specialty, hereby better understanding physiology to improve treatment strategies and positively impacting outcome.
