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 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…
