These guidelines provide new information and recommendations on calculation of the Syntax score, radial access as standard approach for coronary angiography, drug-eluting stents for any percutaneous coronary intervention, preferred surgical myocardial revascularisation if left ventricular ejection fraction is less than 35%, among other updates.
