There are two different types of acute myocardial infarction: ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). The patophysiological background, the epidemiology and the therapeutic strategies are different in STEMI and NSTEMI. In STEMI percutaneous coronary intervention or thrombolysis should be performed within 90 minutes, however in NSTEMI the percutaneous coronary intervention could be performed within the first 24 and 72 hours, depending on the clinical situation.

Supervisor: HORVÁTH, Iván Gábor

The indications of percutaneous coronary interventions are addressed, regarding especially the cases of myocardial infarctions and the consequently occurring cardiogenic shocks. In the latter situation, full revascularization plays an important role. The different catheter based techniques are discussed, which are utilized during the diagnostic and interventional part in the catheter based revascularization.

During coronarography the identification and characterization of stenosis are important, however there are only indirect information about the histopathological characteristics of these lesions, and the severity of the ischemia could not be judged properly in some cases. The latter could be characterized by the utilization of pressure wire measurements, especially via the fractional flow reserve (FFR). The former could be characterized by the use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT).
