Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate 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 is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Improving the quality of life and reducing sudden cardiac death by limiting the impact of heart rhythm disturbances.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Patient with previously undiagnosed anterior MI who comes for the first time to medical attention because of heart failure symptoms. Angiography shows 70% LAD stenosis, in the absence of ischaemic symptoms, and revascularisation will be performed only if tissue in the LAD territory is viable.
Rest perfusion, assessed as late replenishment (10 seconds after flash) is significantly reduced (but not completely absent) in the true apex and distal part of apical segments in 4-chamber, whereas in 2 and 3-chamber hypoperfusion does not extend beyond true apex; anterior mid and basal segments show normal perfusion while basal lateral is not interpretable. Revascularization will be indicated, since viability is substantially absent only in the true apex ( 1 segment).
Quantitative Analysis of MCE Replenishment velocity is blunted in the apical segments(red lower curves)-for comparison see the green normal curve sampled in the basal-mid septum.
