2m 25sPart 2 Summary
15m 13sPart 8 Panel Discussion and Q&A
This three-part programme delves into the critical importance of individualised antithrombotic treatment in both Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and Chronic Coronary Syndrome (CCS).
Part one of this programme presents two compelling patient case studies. Prof Pascal Vranckx (Hartcentrum Hasselt, BE) presents a complex 62-year old male with stable angina and HFrEF, undergoing an elective angiography and Prof Eliano Navarese (Nicolaus Copernicus University, PL) presents a 62-year-old male with persistent chest pain, transferred for PCI within 24 hours of onset.
In part two, during a roundtable chaired by Prof Marco Valgimigli (Instituto Cardiocentro Ticino, Lugano, CH), our panel of experts review the two intriguing patient cases, providing valuable insights into the challenges faced and highlighting the need for tailored treatment approaches. This roundtable brings to the forefront impactful new trial data that will reshape the way we approach antithrombotic therapies in ACS and CCS.
The panel, including Prof Vijay Kunadian (Newcastle University, UK), discuss practical solutions to common challenges experienced in real-world practice whilst summarising the new recommendations for antithrombotic treatment strategies in ACS and CCS patients with established coronary artery disease (CAD) made in the 2022 joint clinical consensus statement of the European Association of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (EAPCI), Association for Acute Cardiovascular Care (ACVC) and European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC).
In the final part, we offer a short but impactful follow-up on the patient journey.
Please note that the live version of this roundtable was CME accredited; this on-demand version is not.

- Describe current gaps in clinical evidence and what is missing from current guidance
- Adopt an evidence-based approach for managing patients with ACS and CCS
- General Cardiologists
- Interventional Cardiologists

Patient Follow Up
Patient Cases Revisited
Prof Navarese and Prof Vranckx present the two clinical case studies on ACS and CCS to be examined in this programme. Additionally, the panel review audience poll results on the initial approach to these patients.
Development of a Consensus for Antithrombotic Therapy in CAD
Here Prof Valgimigli discusses the rationale behind the development of the new consensus statements on ACS and CCS, presents key data that has driven the recommendations, and highlights the shift in antiplatelet paradigm the consensus brings.
Antithrombotic Treatment Strategies in Patients With Established CAD: Results of Two Network Meta-Analyses
Prof Navarese presents the results of a companion network meta-analysis on antithrombotic strategies in established CAD, including a ranking of individual strategies to identify best-in-class agents for key primary and secondary endpoints.
Clinical Consensus Statements on Patients With ACS
Prof Kunadian summarises the recommendations made in the new joint clinical consensus statement of the EAPCI, ACVC and EAPC on patients with ACS, covering short and long-term strategy for monotherapy and dual/triple antiplatelet therapy.
Clinical Consensus Statements on Patients With CCS
Prof Vranckx summarises the recommendations made in the new joint clinical consensus statement of the EAPCI, ACVC and EAPC on patients with CCS, covering individualised antithrombotic approaches and examination of bleeding risk.
