 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.

In order to offer guidance and to answer your questions SCAI will be hosting a free webinar on the topic as part of its Quality Improvement Toolkit (SCAI-QIT) Webinar Series on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 2 PM EDT.

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.

 

This webinar will feature  Vice Chair of the Guideline Writing Committee James C. Blankenship, MD, FACC, FSCAI, discussing Navigating the Revised Guidelines for PCI, followed by your questions and comments.
