|Synopsis of Event||
Diagnosis of Heart Disease with Multislice CT
Multi detector CT technology allows coronary lumens to be visualized with a high sensitivity and specificity. In addition, myocardial perfusion and ventricular function and evaluation for other life-threatening cardiovascular diseases, such as aortic dissection and pulmonary embolism are possible in patients with chest pain presentations. Drawbacks include uncertain benefit of screening, cost, radiation and contrast risk.
Medical Management of Chronic Ischemic Heart Disease
Our understanding of ischemic heart disease has evolved significantly in the last decade. From a previous simplistic approach focused on relieving obstruction, we now understand that adequate management goes beyond a cosmetic result. We shall be reviewing current understanding on coronary artery disease and the important role of medical therapy in its management.
Acute Coronary Syndrome Management - What a GP should know
Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is an expressed clinical state of intracoronary occlusive and subocclusive thrombus formation with intense regional ischemia or infarction. It encompasses a spectrum of manifestation from that of unstable angina to acute myocardial infarction and sudden death, and requires timely intervention to reduce adverse outcomes.
