A leap forward in improving STEMI treatment: combining limus-elution and self apposition

With an unrestricted educational grant from STENTYS

Learning Objectives

  • To reflect on the need to improve primary PCI outcome and the current limitation of balloon-expandable stents to ensure complete myocardial reperfusion and optimal stent implantation
  • To better understand the in vivo mode of action of self-expanding stents and consequently the results in clinical practice
  • To learn how the new sirolimus self-apposing stent can help in your daily practice for complex STEMI cases

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Introduction and objectives
  • Self-apposing technology: device, clinical trial results and remaining unanswered questions
  • Understanding mechanisms for self-expansion with histology and in vivo models
  • Sirolimus self-apposing stent versus second generation DES in STEMI: the APPOSITION IV results
