The European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery and the European Society of Cardiology have, for the third time, brought together cardiac surgeons and cardiologists to draft a document on the treatment of coronary heart disease. 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.


Thanks for that Claire, the problem is enforcement of evidence, I see often PCI's not sanctioned by the guidelines and blatant ignorance of SYNTAX
