From LEADERS FREE to clinical practice: a case-based approach in tailoring stent treatment to patients and their bleeding risk



This video is offered by Biosensors International

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the criteria for high bleeding risk patients and to identify these patients in clinical practice
  • To understand how a drug-coated stent allows DAPT to be shortened and tailored to the individual patient
  • To explore how biodegradable-polymer and polymer-free drug-coated stents provide solutions to patients with or without a high bleeding risk

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Session objectives
  • Case 1: from DAPT to triple therapy, increasing the risk of bleeding
  • Case 2: elderly patient with multiple comorbidities
  • Case 3: uncertain bleeding risk in the case of STEMI
  • Case 4: coronary stenting in patients scheduled for TAVI
  • Session evaluation and key learnings
