Educational Clinical Cases
The aim of these clinical cases is to present real and typical clinical scenarios, discuss findings and management in the light of current ESC recommendations and follow the clinical course of the case.
They will usually focus on one central topic although a particular case often will touch on several fields in cardiology and illustrate a number of issues or guidelines.
Students, cardiologists or anyone wanting to refresh their clinical competence can test their knowledge through these cases.
