This initiative aims to improve the delivery of care and patient access to the life saving indications of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (p-PCI), thereby reducing mortality and morbidity in patients suffering from acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
Poised to become the reference for interventional practioners, the PCR-EAPCI Textbook offers four volumes dedicated to diagnosis, coronary interventions, structural heart disease, peripheral interventions and perspectives. Both clinically and practically oriented, the Textbook covers everything today‘s interventional needs to know. 10 chapters of the Textbook have been accredited by EBAC (European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology) for a total of 20 External CME credits* All versions available on our online bookstore
