To reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
ESC Guidelines on myocardial revascularisation

Myocardial revascularisation – by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or surgical placement of coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG) – is one of the most important treatment principles in cardiology. However, both the identification of patients who require revascularisation and selection of the method to achieve restored blood flow must be carefully performed in order to maximise benefit and avoid procedures that do more harm than good.  Read more

New in Barcelona: a battery-free pacemaker, local anaesthesia in TAVI, and mapping AEDs
  • Swiss scientists are adapting technology from automatic watches to power pacemakers with nothing more than the motion of the beating heart.
  • Local anaesthesia (LA) is as safe and effective for TAVI as general anaesthesia (GA), according to new registry results.
  • ‘Geographic optimisation modelling’ can be used for identifying the best locations for automatic external defibrillators (AEDs), according to French investigators.
In search of the best treatment strategies in PCI

In the Andreas Gruentzig lecture Adnan Kastrati recalls his contributions to improving safety and efficacy in restenosis and late stent thrombosis:  ‘The increased risk for late stent thrombosis with drug eluting stents seems to be the price paid for the dramatic reductions in restenosis.’  Read more

‘Strongest scientific programme yet’ for ESC Congress 2014

'The ESC Congress has become the dominant scientific and educational forum in cardiology,' says Professor Keith Fox, chair of the Congress Programme Committee. 'It’s the place where the most innovative clinical and basic science studies get presented. That our meeting is now the number one international event in cardiology is underlined by higher-than-ever numbers of submissions from non-European countries.' Read more

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
