Stent for Life Initiative

Targeting percutaneous cardiovascular interventions (PCI) at all who will benefit the most

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).

19 Stent for Life active members are part of the Stent for Life Initiative whose aim is to drive for equal access to life-saving indication of PPCI in STEMI patients across Europe and beyond


The Stent for Life Initiative supports implementation of local ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treatment guidelines, helps identify specific barriers to implementation of guidelines and defines actions to make sure that majority of STEMI patients have access to the life saving indication of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) . Dr William Wijns, past-president of EAPCI, and SFL founder explains “The new European myocardial revascularization guidelines released recently reinforce the importance of achieving best clinical practice and reflect the growing evidence for the benefit of prompt intervention in all patients with STEMI”.


Improve the delivery and patient access to the lifesaving indications of primary-PCI thereby reducing the mortality and morbidity of patients suffering from acute coronary syndromes.
