Individualising Antithrombotic Strategies for Established Coronary Artery Disease
Radcliffe Medical Education bring together an expert panel to address the importance of providing individualised antithrombotic treatment in Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and Chronic Coronary Syndrome (CCS).
Chaired by Prof Marco Valgimigli (Instituto Cardiocentro Ticino, Lugano, CH), the panel review the two patient cases presented in phase one of this programme, present impactful new trial data and discuss practical solutions to common challenges experienced in real-world practice.
Further, the faculty review and summarise the new recommendations for antithrombotic treatment strategies in ACS and CCS patients with established coronary artery disease (CAD) made in the 2022 joint clinical consensus statement of the European Association of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (EAPCI), Association for Acute Cardiovascular Care (ACVC) and European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC).
This programme is intended to educate:
- General Cardiologists
- Interventional Cardiologists
Upon participation in this programme, physicians will be able to:
- Summarise current guidance for choosing antithrombotic therapy in established CAD
- Describe current gaps in clinical evidence and what is missing from current guidance
- Adopt an evidence-based approach for managing patients with ACS and CCS
This programme is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca.
