Asia Primary Angioplasty Congress
Doing our best to treat AMI
Welcome to Asia Primary Angioplasty Congress!
Heart disease is the world’s number 1 killer and accounts for at least 15 million deaths each year worldwide with an increasing trend observed in developing countries. Although there is a vast difference in STEMI care across Asia, we all share a common goal of saving lives from STEMI.
With this in mind, Asia Primary Angioplasty Congress (APAC) is the first dedicated primary angioplasty meeting in the region.
We usually feature a series of short lectures by key opinion leaders from far and wide covering most aspects of primary PCI.
Interactive case presentations remain the backbone of our program over the years. We also hold a ” heart-to-heart” discussion on the latest breakthroughs and controversies in the management of STEMI.
Much focus will be placed on the logistics of performing primary PCI in developing countries and initiatives to improve D2B time and outcomes in STEMI.
Handbook on Primary Angioplasty: A Practical Guide
This quick-reference handbook offers a concise and practical review of key aspects of the treatment of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in the era of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). In the context of STEMI, PPCI is the preferred mode of emergency revascularization. Access to PPCI is rapidly increasing and is now routinely practiced in both general and specialist hospitals and there has been a recent emphasis on developing STEMI networks to enhance and expedite the referral pathway. This coupled with concurrent developments to enhance the safety and efficacy of the PPCI procedure has heralded an era where STEMI interventions are increasingly considered an important subspecialty within interventional cardiology.
Written by leading cardiologists who have been instrumental in the adoption of PPCI in their respective institutions, the book provides junior and senior cardiologists alike with insightful and thought-provoking tips and tricks to enhance the success of PPCI procedures, which may in turn translate into direct improvements in outcomes. The book is also relevant for healthcare providers and emergency department physicians.
