Here you will find all the latest content on other diverse topics within the theme of Coronary Interventions such as calcified lesions published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.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 the latest research on other topics in coronary interventions? Here…

Stents and scaffolds

Here you will find all the latest content on stents and scaffolds published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.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, devices and techniques; the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy; advances in imaging techniques as well as the use of invasive imaging and functional assessment. Find out more…

CTO (Chronic total occlusion)

Here you will find all the latest content on chronic total occlusion (CTO) published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.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 devices) and the elaboration of CTO-specific techniques. To fully grasp CTO today, here you will find here everything that you need to know including the latest devices and techniques as well as advances in imaging, the use of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or understanding bleeding risks…

Left main and multivessel disease

Here you will find all the latest content on left main and multivessel disease published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.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 at significant risk for life-threatening cardiovascular events. Treatment requires an understanding of all available tools, devices and techniques, like those employed in invasive imaging and functional assessment, as well as taking into account underlying comorbidities such as diabetes. Advances in imaging techniques, as well as the use of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or invasive interventions such as bypass surgery, are important, as are understanding bleeding risks, all of which can be found here…

Bifurcation lesions

Here you will find all the latest content on bifurcation lesions published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.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 along with the latest research and devices as well as advances in imaging, the use of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or understanding bleeding risks, all of which can be found here…

Stable CAD (Coronary artery disease)

Here you will find all the latest content on stable coronary artery disease (stable CAD) published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.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 techniques like those for invasive imaging and functional assessment. Taking into account underlying comorbidities such as diabetes is critical. Advances in imaging techniques, as well as the use of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or invasive interventions such as bypass surgery, are important, as are understanding bleeding risks, all of which can be found here…

STEMI

Here you will find all the latest content on ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.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 up-to-date on the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, advances in imaging techniques and the use of invasive imaging and functional assessment. Tools, devices and techniques as well as complications, such as the different types of vascular access or bleeding risk can be found here as well…

NSTEMI (Non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction)

Here you will find all the latest content on non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.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, keeping abreast of advances in imaging techniques as well as the use of invasive imaging and functional assessment is critical. Tools, devices and techniques, and complications such as different types of vascular access or bleeding risks, can also be found here…
