Platelet Function Testing - Roundtable Discussion

Roundtable Discussion

 

During ESC 2013 (NL), Radcliffe Cardiology, in association with the Interventional Cardiology Review journal, filmed a roundtable discussion entitled 'Balancing the Efficacy and Safety of Antiplatelet Agents'.

The discussion was moderated by Robert Storey, (Sheffield, UK). He was joined by expert group of physicians including Jean-Philippe Collet, (Paris, FR), Antonio Colombo, (Milan, IT), Jeff Daheln, (Accumetrics, US), Guillaume Taylor, (Paris, FR) and Stavros Spiliopoulos, (Rion, GR).

The meeting comprised of four multidisciplinary panel discussions on a range of topical issues related to antiplatelet therapy and platelet function testing.

This educational activity is intended for an international audience, specifically interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologists and aligned healthcare professional involved with antiplatelet therapy.
