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…

MASTER: Safety and efficacy of biodegradable polymer DES in management of patients with acute STEMI

From EuroPCR 2016

M. Valdes introduces the MASTER study showing us just how BMS were put to the test. Taking a close look at the treatment of patients with acute STEMI, MASTER compares DES with bioresorbable polymer with bare metal stents. And the outcomes? At 4 and 6 months, in a population representative of daily practice, the results were in favour of the DES.Learn more about the details of this study – efficacy and favourable short-term safety, late lost, target vessel failure.

STEMI and multivessel disease, when and how to stage?

Patients presenting with STEMI and multivessel disease tend to have worse outcomes and the challenge of an effective treatment is complex.Join D. Dudek and M. Behan as they review the evolution in our approach to these patients in terms of primary and additional PCI. What is the nature of the “staged” procedure? Which vessel do we treat first? What is the optimal timing? Are there certain types of patients in which a staged strategy should be avoided? Are more studies warranted?To learn more, begin here…

EuroIntervention - Bioresorbable vascular scaffold implantation in STEMI patients

From EuroPCR 2016

Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BRS) and their implantation in STEMI patients was the focus of two recent articles in EuroIntervention. V. Kodka and R. Diletti were invited by PCR TV to discuss their papers with T. Gori.What is the rationale for using BVS in the setting of STEMI or ACS in general? Does the architecture of BVS play a positive role in treating STEMI? How patients selected and what is the impact of new devices in complex settings? These and other topics are featured in this wide-ranging discussion on BVS, at an important stage in its evolution and use … Join us!Find out more about EuroIntervention Journal
