In connection with the heart congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2023 in Amsterdam August 25-28, new and updated guidelines were presented on several areas. Completely new this year are the ESC's guidelines for acute coronary syndromes.
- Here, for the first time, we have combined guidelines for acute myocardial infarction without ST-elevation in the ECG (NSTEMI), acute myocardial infarction with ST-elevation (STEMI) and unstable angina, says Sigrun Halvorsen, professor at the University of Oslo and leader of the Ischemic Heart Disease research group at Oslo-CCHR in an interview with "Dagens Medisin". Halvorsen, who has been involved in the process as document review coordinator, says that the idea behind the merger is that the three states have a lot in common, both in terms of pathophysiology, how to make the diagnosis and how to treat them
