Have questions about how the recently released 2011 PCI Guidelines* should be utilized in the cardiac cath lab? SCAI recently issued revised guidelines for the management of patients undergoing PCI, along with AHA and ACC. The 2011 guideline emphasizes careful consideration before determining treatment for coronary artery disease (CAD) including the use of a heart team approach and provides the most extensive section yet comparing coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) and PCI.

It is critical all members of the interventional cardiovascular care team understand what these revisions mean for patient care in the cardiac cath lab.

As SCAI Quality Champions continue to implement the SCAI-QIT at their cath lab, this webinar will also provide participants with a focused look at how the revised PCI guidelines can be incorporated into the greater Toolkit.
