Physiology in STEMI patients is a controversial hot topic in interventional cardiology: it has been first demonstrated to enhance the benefits of full revascularization vs PCI only in the culprit lesion; then its effectiveness has been mitigated by clinical outcomes not showing any differences versus angiography-guided complete revascularization.

Join a panel of international expert in the discussion about a topic that is still controversial and may impact a large number of STEMI patients undergoing PCI.

Clinical evidence and cases from the real world will be the two key subjects debated during the breakout session at TIO 2022.
