Acute and Stable Ischemic Heart Disease

Use the ACC.18 Online Planner to browse sessions and start building your itinerary.

The Acute and Stable Ischemic Heart Disease (ASIHD) Learning Pathway is a powerful and informative program with topics that will span the spectrum, including strategies for developing a team, decision-making in ACS, sex difference in cardiovascular disease and great debates in Ischemia. The program also covers state-of-the art diagnosis, comprehensive evidence-based management, clinical conundrums, cardiovascular outcomes, secondary prevention of acute and stable ischemic heart disease and much more.

With a plethora of sessions packed with debates, insight and information, attendees will have ample opportunity to participate in sessions. During session #692, The Science and Magic of Decision Making: The Hogwart's Approach to Ischemic Heart Disease, hear perplexing clinical scenarios presented by FITs, followed by expert analyses of the scientific data, panel discussions and audience Q and A and finally a summary of the “art” of decision-making.

Find out how successful heart teams from three major institutions would approach selected patient scenarios in Session #6001, Heart Teams in Action: Complex Coronary Revascularization Decision-Making. Patient case presentations are followed by a panel and audience question and answer period and audience polling while the heart team strategizes its approach. Following the team’s strategy presentation, the patient’s actual outcome is revealed. The session allows you to be part of the action and provides insight into how effective heart teams work.

All members of the cardiovascular team need to take an active role in the ASIHD Learning Pathway and share their heart team experiences and knowledge with colleagues and peers. Join us and explore the art and science of cardiovascular medicine at ACC.18.
