Cyprus joined the Stent for Life initiative in May 2013, aiming to reduce mortality and morbidity in patients suffering acute myocardial infarction by expanding the services of primary percutaneous coronary interventions (p-PCI). The first action was to create the Stent for Life Task Force, involving all the centers in the island which are capable to establish a 24/7 primary PCI service. The first meeting of the Task Force was held on July 11, 2013 and the agenda included the launch of a public campaign in order to inform both Cardiologists and the people about the existence of the program and the importance of immediate action. A national registry is under construction, to include data of all p-PCI centers and to demonstrate the benefits of the expansion of the p-PCI service. The Task Force was committed to organize a “Stent for Life” congress in Cyprus inviting national coordinators of other countries to share with us their experience and knowledge.
