Can we increase myocardial salvage in the primary PCI era? The role of ischaemic conditioning, dedicated devices and pharmacological agents

Learning Objectives

  • To acknowledge that both ischaemic and reperfusion myocardial injury should be targeted during primary PCI
  • To understand the rationale of ischaemic conditioning and to learn which patients will benefit from it
  • To be updated on recent studies on ischaemic conditioning, technologies and drugs targeting reperfusion injury during primary PCI
