Interventional management of acute heart failure; which device, when and how?

06 Jun 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

The challenge of responding to patients with cardiogenic shock and heart failure is complex. A. Pathak, V. Falk and D. Burkhoff discuss where we stand today and the different approaches available for the Heart Team. From medications to an increasing array of devices including the intra-aortic balloon pumps (IABP), or more modern devices such as “active mechanical” pumps, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) pumps or pulsatile transvalvular pumps – each of these is described, their advantages and disadvantage discussed. What is our best strategy? How do we choose patients? What do current trials point to? And why does nothing replace a good physiologic understanding? Education is critical, learn here…

Multidisciplinary approach for out of hospital cardiac arrest management

08 Jun 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

A common – often lethal – event, learn why survival rates are improving in this provocative discussion with G. Steg, T. Johnson and J. Strange. What is the importance of community involvement, the “chain of survival” and “pathway of care” or the critical use of early CPR? How do you choose which comatose cardiac patient goes to the cathlab – should they all? Does angioplasty really help and which haemodynamic support is necessary: Impella or ECMO? Does good data exist or can expenditures be justified? What is the effect mortality rates on cathlab teams and why is good communication, from start to finish, essential? 

EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Interventions for Hypertension

23 May 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

What’s happening in the field of the device-based treatment of hypertension? Join S. Ewen, F. Mahfoud and A. Pathak as they review the different sessions at EuroPCR 2017 dedicated to this challenging topic. Explore exciting new devices such as one aimed at the carotid region using baroreflex activation, which might have an effect on heart failure as well as resistant hypertension. Look at a new transcatheter approach to modulate the carotid body.  Learn about current data and results in the ongoing trials in renal denervation. Watch here...
