The goal of this program was to improve the knowledge with regard to peri- and post procedural management of ACS, based on patient cases. After attending this program, the clinician will be better able to:
  • Evaluate the cardiovascular risk associated with ACS
  • Describe current treatment options for ACS and assess the proportion of patients eligible for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)
  • Describe the need for peri- and post procedural platelet inhibition
  • Understand the role of platelet inhibition in clinical outcomes of patients with ACS undergoing PCI
  • Describe the most important changes in ACS/PCI guidelines
  • Understand the implications of real-world data from registries on ACS/PCI
