Introducing Themed Short Tracks

In SHORT TRACKS we collect 2-4 recent lectures from EAS congresses or courses, putting them together to provide up-to-date perspectives on a given current topic.

This month’s SHORT TRACK topic is Arterial wall and atherothrombosis.

In addition to the efforts aiming to prevent atherosclerotic plaque development, it`s also very important to prevent the thrombotic complications of atherosclerosis, that have as a consequence the acute coronary syndromes and acute ischemic stroke. In the selected lectures we present the most recent data on the pathogenesis of atherothrombosis as well as the methods to detect and strategies to treat the vulnerable plaque.

Atherothrombosis; from pathogenesis to treatment

EAS Academy. Professor Steffen Massberg May 08, 2018, 217774
                                                                                                                                       
This presentation was given at the 86th EAS Congress in Lisbon 2018, by Professor Steffen Massberg from the Department of Cardiology, Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich, Germany.
In his very comprehensive lecture, Professor Massberg clearly describes the mechanisms by which platelets, neutrophils, and neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) contribute to arterial thrombosis. Professor Massberg also shortly discusses the role of existing antiplatelet drugs as well as direct oral anticoagulants in preventing the thrombotic complications of atherosclerosis.

Strategies to treat vulnerable plaque

EAS Academy. Professor David Erlinge, May 08, 2018, 217777
                                                                                                                                     
The 2nd presentation included in this Newsletter was given at the 86th EAS Congress in Lisbon 2018, by Professor David Erlinge from the Department of Cardiology, Lund University Lund, Sweden.
At the beginning of his excellent talk, Professor Erlinge, discusses the intracoronary imaging methods used to detect vulnerable plaques and presents clinical studies in which these methods were applied. Subsequently, he discusses the current strategies used to treat the vulnerable plaque, which include the systemic treatment by intensive lowering the LDL-cholesterol levels, as well as the local treatment by plaque sealing using various types of stents. The factors that could influence the success of this treatment are also presented.
