Educational objectives of the symposium
The goal of this program were to summarize the knowledge with regard to peri- and post procedural management of MI, based on patient cases.
After attending this program, the clinician will be better able to:
Understand the pathophysiology of acute MI with a focus on the mechanisms of platelet aggregation
Identify the role of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors in ACS
Summarize the cumulative published clinical trial and registry data on the use of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors in ACS patients undergoing PCI
Describe the outcomes of peri- and post procedural platelet inhibition in MI intervention
Discuss the selective use of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors in international guidelines and in daily practice
Improve practical understanding of when and why to use GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors in ACS PCI patients
Discuss the future of antiplatelet therapies and their potential clinical implications
