Discover the future of STEMI management with “QFR Insights in STEMI: enhancing emergency treatment strategies” by prof. Eric van Belle

We are happy to announce that we will host another Medis QFR® Academy session, this session will feature Prof. Eric Van Belle, esteemed Head of Interventional Cardiology at University Hospital of Lille, France. He will guide us through the intricacies of using QFR in the context of ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI). This session will illuminate the pivotal role of QFR in distinguishing between culprit and non-culprit lesions, using two detailed clinical case studies as a backdrop for discussion. This session will be moderated by Dr. Ignacio J Amat Santos From University of Valladolid Medical Centre in Spain.
