  • To understand why just opening the vessel in acute myocardial infarction is not enough
  • To better understand why the self-expanding stents could be a new alternative for primary PCI
  • To learn from experienced operators when and how to use self-expanding stents in your daily practice

  • Case 1 (large thrombus, long tapered vessel)
  • Reflection on multiple cases
  • Wrap-up
  • Case 2 (bifurcation in acute myocardial infarction)
  • Self-expanding stent for primary PCI: why could this other device be a new alternative?
