Description / Abstract:

  • decisions regarding management and indication of percutaneous circulatory support for patients with hemodynamic complications of coronary artery disease (CAD), specifically represented by stable syndromes and very depressed left ventricular function, and acute syndromes complicated by cardiogenic shock
  • options related to timing of interventions: indication for ad hoc  angioplasty, for simultaneous treatment of culprit and non-culprit lesions in acute coronary syndromes, for staged percutaneous revascularization in multivessel disease, and for combined or staged interventions in patients with associated coronary, carotid and peripheral disease
  • decisions regarding management of acute intraprocedural complications, like coronary dissection or perfuration, the no-reflow phenomenon, and distal coronary embolization
  • patient selection for percutaneous intervention in massive pulmonary embolism, end-stage aortic stenosis, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

To accomplish our goals, we have invited several internationally known leaders in the field of interventional cardiology.

We hope that this unique in-depth presentation of challenging patients and procedural subsets will be of great value to clinical as well as interventional cardiologists worldwide.
