2018 ESC/EACTS Guidelines on Myocardial Revascularization: Review of the Most Important Issues
In these guidelines, ESC and EACTS provide recommendations for revascularization of stable coronary artery disease (SCAD), non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEMI), ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), and revascularization in patients with different risk factors. The authors underline the importance of the interaction between cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and referring physicians for choosing the best possible revascularization approach. Herein we represent the key messages of the recently published 2018 guidelines.
