This one day symposium is intended for cardiologists and trainees interested in the investigation and management of coronary vascular disease, and for scientist in related biomedical fields.
The aims will be:
To consider the current investigative and management approaches to coronary artery disease.
To illustrate the dynamic interactions between coronary blood flow, arterial boundaries, myocardial tissue dynamics and spatio-temporal pressure variations.
To consider how these can be altered in coronary artery and myocardial disease.
To apply understanding of these principles to the pathophysiology of coronary disease with a view to achieving more appropriate interventions based on novel investigative approaches.
To consider the evolving investigative approaches of non-invasive cardiovascular magnetic resonance, invasive coronary optical coherence tomography and high fidelity pressure wire measurements of the adenosine-indepedent instantaneous wave-free ratio (iFR)
The meeting includes presentations and discussions on two important recent studies on:
Adenosine-independent evaluation of coronary stenoses: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22154731
The assessment of myocardial perfusion by CMR: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22196944
Each could be considered potentially game-changing, but controversial. The symposium offers opportunities to hear from and question the leading authors of these studies.
