A worldwide perspective on pharmaco-invasive strategy for STEMI

If primary PCI is the gold standard for reperfusion in STEMI, why isn’t this the first strategy of choice worldwide?Join K. F. Al-Shaibi, T. Cuisset and S. Khan as they spotlight the constraints that prevent many STEMI patients from having quick access to an interventionalist. Questions of timing, of the lack of cathlab facilities or skilled operators are discussed along with the reperfusion strategies of fibrinolysis or even aspirin as valid and effective clinical choices when primary PCI is impossible.Learn why, even with possible disadvantages and complications, any reperfusion is far better than none at all…. 

What to expect in interventional cardiology in 2017

PCR Chair William Wijns gives us his take on 2017: expanded indications for TAVI, new BRS data, trials on device based therapies in arterial hypertension, launch of Stent Save a Life, slow implementation of interventional treatment of acute ischemic stroke, celebrating 40 years of balloon angioplasty and EuroPCR 2017. An exciting year lies ahead!

Extra-renal intervention for hypertension treatment

What new approaches exist today to treat hypertension beyond renal denervation? Join F. Mahfoud, A. Pathak and K. Tsioufis as they take a close look at several now being explored. Beginning with the carotid artery, they examine three possible techniques: baroreflex, chemoreceptors and architectural restructuring; asking what are the positive elements – and dangers – involved in these treatments. They then turn to a novel device placed between the iliac artery and vein which has shown immediate and positive results in the cathlab – can this recently published FIM be a new way forward? Successful treatment of resistant hypertension is an international health challenge….to learn what’s happening at the cutting edge of the field today, join us here…

PCR Tokyo Valves Learning from 2016, perspectives for 2017

Understanding the expansion of transcatheter valve therapies in Asia is not just a question of knowledge, experience and technique, but also the cultural, economic and anatomical differences that are specific to the region.Learn why as P. MacCarthy from the UK with K. Hayashida from Japan, H-L Kao of Taiwan, and K. K. Yeo from Singapore discuss current Asian practice. Are there different complications facing Asian specialists? Is there a specific appeal among Asian patients to the noninvasive approach? What is the status of noninvasive mitral interventions? Learn the answers to these and other questions - and how PCR Tokyo Valves is expanding to become the Asian forum in this field…
