08:30 Opening
09:00 Live in a box 1: ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) “fast-track”
  Objectives:
  • To update the best current primary PCI practice based on the latest recommendations;
  • To present what is the current strategy for STEMI with multivessel disease with and without shock;
  • To learn how to deal and avoid complications. Tips and tricks to manage no reflow;
  • To know what is the best practice in STEMI complicated of cardiogenic shock. The role of percutaneous hemodynamic support in STEMI.
09:50 Key learnings

  Objectives:
  • To be aware of the main updates of high and intermediate-high risk PE treatment in latest ESC guidelines;
  • To understand the main value of Pulmonary Embolism Response Teams (PERT); How to build an acute PE team and management pathway;
  • Understand the advantages of catheter directed treatment versus systemic lysis in intermediate-high risk PE; Discuss the options of high-risk PE treatment when there is contraindication to lysis;
  • To have knowledge of the main catheter-based therapies: its results and complications;
  • Discuss the role of surgical embolectomy in the era of catheter-based intervention.
