Part 3

View from the Thoraxcenter

In these concise episodes of View from the Thoraxcenter, Prof Nicolas Van Mieghem and Dr Joost Daemen (Thoraxcentre, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, NL) offer their thoughts on the top late-breaking trials that will be presented at ACC 2023. 

About the episode

ACC.23/WCC — Late-breaker host, Dr Harriette Van Spall (McMaster University, CA) is joined by principle investigator, Dr Divaka Perera (King’s College London & Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital, UK) and investigator, Dr Peter O'Kane (Royal Bournemouth Hospital, UK) to discuss the REVIVED-BCIS2 viability analysis (NCT01920048)

This analysis of the REVIVED-BICS2 trial found that viability characterisation does not impact the effect of PCI on prognosis or LV recovery in ischaemic cardiomyopathy, compared to optimised guideline therapy (OMT) alone. The study also showed that scar burden can predict prognosis and likelihood of LV recovery in ischaemic cardiomyopathy independent of baseline LVEF or extent of CAD.

Recorded remotely from Hamilton, London and Dorset, 2023.
