Roundtable Discussion: The SYNTAX II Trial

Roundtable Discussion


During the "Advances in Coronary Physiology" course in London, (11th September 2017), Simple Education, in association with Radcliffe Cardiology, filmed a roundtable discussion focused around the impact of the SYNTAX II clinical trial results presented at ESC 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

This discussion was moderated by Dr. Justin Davies (London, UK) who was joined by an expert group of physicians including Prof Javier Escaned (Madrid, ES), Prof Amir Lerman (Minnesota, US), Dr Bruce Samuels (Los Angeles, US) and Dr Andrew Sharp (Exeter, UK).

The meeting comprised of five panel discussions on a range of topical issues related to the trial results and the use of imaging and physiology.

This educational activity is intended for an international audience, specifically interventional cardiologists and cardiologists. However, other healthcare professionals involved in the care of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients will also find this topical.

The assigned learning objectives for this roundtable are listed for your information:
  • To increase awareness of the key outcomes from Syntax 2
  • To discuss the data in wider historical context
  • To discuss clinical implications of this data
  • To summarise and debate future research to be conducted as a result of Syntax2
