The diversity and complexity of available therapeutic options and the seemingly continuous
flow of new information make it difficult for physicians to remain informed about emerging
trends in the management of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). This full-day symposium for
physicians will provide an overview of the latest developments in AMI management.
Presented by an international faculty of cardiology thought leaders, the agenda includes
discussion of fibrinolytics, new antithrombins, novel fibrinolytic-antithrombotic combinations,
adjuncts to infarct angioplasty, facilitated PCI, mechanical support in shock patients, and a
look at real-world data from registries.

Learning Objectives:

After attending the symposium, participants should be able to:

Discuss the latest trends and research in myocardial reperfusion therapy
Evaluate the safety and efficacy of novel combination therapies to treat AMI
Examine mechanical support as a therapeutic option in managing cardiogenic shock
Appreciate results of efforts at distal protection of the microvasculature as a
component of AMI management
