Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission: To promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
ESC Councils goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The acute coronary syndrome (ACS) comprises a variety of clinical scenari ranging from unstable angina pectoris to non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The management of these different types of ACS have been rapidly evolving during the past decade. The highest short- term mortality is observed still in patients with STEMI defined by chest pain or equivalent symptoms and ST segment elevations or a left bundle block (LBBB) in the diagnostic Electrocardiogram (ECG) and confirmation by elevation of cardiac markers (preferred troponin). Based on the results of randomised controlled trials, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) has been providing practice guidelines relevant to the treatment of STEMI.
Previous ACS-Surveys and Snapshot within the Euro Heart Survey Programme showed gaps between recommendations by guidelines and their implementation into clinical practice. In addition wide variations in the treatment of STEMI between countries have been noticed, especially in the use of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Large national quality control registries of consecutive patients with ACS have shown that adherence to guidelines is associated with an improvement of care, and a significant reduction of hospital mortality in clinical practice. Therefore it is of interest how adherence to guidelines relates to outcomes in a multinational observational study.
The main objective of this general, prospective, multicentre and observational registry is to describe the demographic, clinical, and biological characteristics of patients with STEMI admitted to a representative setting of cardiology centres (with and without PCI facilities) in ESC-member countries in Europe and beyond. The target population are patients with chest pain or equivalent symptoms of more than 20 minutes duration within the last 24 hours prior to admission to hospital and ST segment elevations or LBBB in the diagnostic ECG.
This study is open to all ESC member and affiliate member national cardiac societies. You are welcome to join us!The purpose of this registry is to assess the feasibility of recruitment, the appropriateness of the dataset collected and the suitability of the expected enrolment.
The ESC Associations initiating this registry are the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) and the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI).The Executive Committee of the registry is co-chaired by: Uwe Zeymer, Nicolas Danchin, Franz Weidinger and Peter Ludman.
