Practice Guideline Track on Myocardial Revascularization 2014

Guidelines into Practice

Coronary Artery Disease (Chronic)
Cardiovascular Surgery
Acute Cardiac Care

Contributor:  Special thanks to Stuart Head from the Task Force on Myocardial Revascularization of ESC and EACTS, with contribution of EAPCI.

Based on the 2014 ESC/EACTS Guidelines in Myocardial Revascularisation.

Part 2: Topics in focus

Topic Session Title Slides Webcast
IMAGING Optimal non-invasive strategy to detect worsening and severe ischaemia    
High risk patients with stable angina. When coronary angiography should be the first choice    
SCAD Coronary artery bypass surgery is the best option    
A fractional flow reserve-guided PCI is a valid alternative    
Left main disease: the surgeon's view    
How to individualise the revascularisation treatment?    
Fractional flow reserve-guided PCI versus medical treatment in stable coronary disease: FAME 2 primary end-point data analysis    
Revascularization in high risk NSTEMI    
NSTEMI: cath lab now or later?    
STEMI Is there (still) a role for thrombectomy in STEMI    
STEMI: essential questions in primary PCI    
CARDIOGENIC SHOCK Primary PCI: culprit lesion or immediate complete reveascularization?    
Percutaneous support: when and how    
DIABETES Revascularization in diabetes patients: CABG versus PCI    
VALVE INTERVENTIONS More aortic stenosis than coronary artery disease    
Combined aortic stenosis and coronary artery disease: conclusions and general take home message    
REPEAT PROCEDURES Stent thrombosis and restenosis: what have we learned and where are we going?    
PCI Optical coherence tomography: just nice to have or mandatory?    
ANTITHROMBOTIC When to stop dual antiplatelet therapy after ACS - less is more?    
Early initiation of antiplatelet therapy - Recommendations and current practice    
Upstream versus intraprocedural antiplatelet therapy    
Pre-treatment with P2Y12 inhibitors in acute coronary syndrome. PRO and CONTRA    
Complete versus Lesion only Primary-PCI Trial (CvLPRIT): treat the infarct related artery only or all lesions.    
 Bivalirudin as anticoagulant in primary PCI - pros and cons
