ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)

Find all the latest content on STEMI published on this website.

Treating STEMI brings into play a series of clinical and organizational protocols in constant evolution. Today, patients presenting with STEMI are best treated by early reperfusion strategies of which primary PCI is the preferred method. Keep...

Other coronary interventions

Find all the latest content on Coronary Interventions such as calcified lesions published on this website.

What techniques do you use for exploring calcified lesions? What are the imaging modalities being used and developed today that are best employed in exploring coronary complications? Where do you find...

Stents and scaffolds

Find all the latest content on stents and scaffolds published on this website.

Since 1986, when the first cardiovascular stent was implanted, the development of drug-eluting stents (DES) and the recent introduction of bioresorbable scaffolds have revolutionised interventional cardiology. Keep up-to-date with the latest research; evolving tools,...

CTO (Chronic total occlusion)

Find all the latest content on chronic total occlusion (CTO) published on this website.

Recently we have seen an increase in successful percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) of CTO in part due to improvements in hardware (guidewires and balloons), the introduction of dedicated devices (microcatheters, channel dilators, dissection-reentry...

Left main and multivessel disease

Find all the latest content on left main and multivessel disease published on this website.

The left main coronary artery provides the primary source of blood flow to the left ventricle. Diseases affecting the left main, by itself or in combination with multivessel disease, place the patient...

Bifurcation lesions

Find all the latest content on bifurcation lesions published on this website.

The percutaneous treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions is very dynamic with an ongoing evolution in clinical approaches and techniques and the management of more complex cases continuing to evolve. Keep up-to-date about all these changes...

Stable CAD (Coronary artery disease)

Find all the latest content on stable coronary artery disease (stable CAD) published on this website.

A complex and changing disease state requiring wide expertise, stable CAD can involve a diverse range of underlying chronic or evolutionary stages involving full use of all available tools, devices and...

NSTEMI (Non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction)

Find all the latest content on NSTEMI published on this website.

NSTEMI is considered one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality and its definition and treatment remains challenging requiring specific, adapted responses. Understanding different biomarkers, becoming aware of emerging new agents used in adjunctive pharmacotherapy,...
