The four new ESC Guidelines were presented for the first time during this session.
Helmut Baumgartner provided us with a brief summary of the disease then giving recommendations on the diagnosis and management, including medical,surgical, and interventional aspects, but also important practical points such as recommendations for exercise, pregnacy, and even insurance.
Wiliam Wijns and Philip Kohl gave recommendations for the diagnosis and performance of revesculariation, either by surgery or intervention, according to anatomy and clinical presentation. They also provided guidance on medical therapy, especially antithrombotic therapy, which accompanies revascularisation, and organisation of PCI centers and patient information.
John Camm reviewed the new aspects of medical therapy, whether there are anti thrombotic agents or anti arrhythmic drugs, and ablation either via interventional techniques or surgery.
Kenneth Dickstein highlighted the management of patients with left ventricular dysfunction but few symptoms, those with atrial fibrillation, and finally patients who already have stimulation in place. More comprehensive presentations of these new guidelines will be given during the congress in specific sessions for each of them.
New this year are the "Meet with the Task force sessions", held on Monday and Tuesday where you can ask the Task Force chairpersons all the questions you may have on the topic.
