Life-saving primary PCI rising in Stent for Life countries
Date:5/16/2012

Paris, 16 May 2012: Life saving primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) treatment is increasing in countries participating in the Stent for Life Initiative.

These achievements and other activities will be revealed at EuroPCR 2012, 15-18 May, in Paris, France. EuroPCR is the official annual meeting of the European Association for Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).

The Stent for Life Initiative is driving equal access to PPCI in heart attack patients across Europe. The mission is to improve the delivery of care and patient access to the life saving indications of PPCI, thereby reducing mortality and morbidity in patients suffering from acute coronary syndromes (ACS). The objective is to increase the use of PPCI to more than 70% of all ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients, achieving PPCI rates of more than 600 per one million inhabitants a year. To do this the aim is to offer a 24/7 PCI service at all relevant facilities to cover the country population need.

"There is great progress in all Stent for Life countries where we are promoting primary PCI," says Professor Steen Kristensen (Aarhus, Denmark), Stent for Life Initiative Chair. "All countries are reporting back now that the numbers of patients treated with primary PCI, the best reperfusion therapy, is increasing."

There are two prongs to the initiative. First is to reduce delays in patients seeking treatment. That means calling an ambulance immediately when they have symptoms of a heart attack. The Stent for Life Initiative is supporting patient awareness campaigns called ACT NOW.SAVE A LIFE in several countries to promote what patients should do if they have heart attack symptoms. More information about the campaigns and their results will be available at the Stent for Life Initiative bo
