ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)
ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) is a very serious type of heart attack during which one of the heart’s major arteries is blocked.

NSTEMI (Non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction)
Non-ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI) is one of the three types of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS), and like all ACS, NSTEMI should be considered a medical emergency.

Stents and scaffolds, PCI and Myocardial revascularization
Myocardial revascularization, or laser revascularization, is an alternative procedure for patients with ischemic heart disease who are unable to get percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary artery bypass graft procedures because of procedure failure, diffuse coronary artery disease, small coronary arteries, etc. This topic will present studies of coronary artery stent types including DES with bioresorbable vascular scaffolds and more.

Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI)
Myocardial infarction (MI) or acute myocardial infarction (AMI), commonly known as a heart attack, occurs when blood flow stops to a part of the heart causing damage to the heart muscle. The most common symptom is chest pain or discomfort which may travel into the shoulder, arm, back, neck, or jaw.
