Update of recent ESC guidelines with respect to antithrombotic therapy in acute coronary syndromes (ACS). 


Content of the course

  • ST Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome:
    • Which antiplatelet and anticoagulant agents are my first treatment alternatives in the patient referred for primary PCI?
    • What is the correct timing for their administration?
  • Non-ST Elevation Acute Coronary Syndromes
    • Choosing the best oral P2Y12 inhibitor (clopidogrel/prasugrel/ticagrelor): different clinical scenarios where each can be used
    • Future role of new oral anticoagulant after ACS: implications from the ATLAS trial
  • Chronic coronary artery disease:
    • Dual antiplatelet therapy: for how long, after all?
    • Should we choose antiplatelet therapy according to platelet function tests or genetic studies?
