ABSTRACT: In the last few years, the activity of cath labs has undergone some notable changes, at present largely focusing on diagnosis and invasive therapy of a broad spectrum of cardiovascular diseases. Technological and pharmacological advances have allowed for procedures to be performed in patients who are increasingly complex, and cath labs have become the preferred venue for endovascular treatment of coronary artery disease, in particular acute coronary syndrome, as well as the treatment of structural heart disease and peripheral vascular disease. This position paper is an update of the 1996 and 2008 versions, given the present level of experience and the situation in Italy. It aims to provide the quality standards required to maintain adequate conditions of know-how and safety, as well as the structural and organizational requirements that are fundamental to obtain the best possible use of human and technological resources. Position papers should be a stimulus and guide for operators in the field as well as for those who govern health policies. This should allow for an improved and more rational allocation of cath labs in Italy, based on the real need for procedures and an optimal distribution and organization of the cardiovascular emergency networks while respecting the minimum standards of care.

ABSTRACT: Available data suggest a steep increase in stable coronary artery disease with age. Its prevalence reaches a peak of almost 12-14% in men aged 65-84 years with an annual mortality ranging from 1.2% to 2.4%. The diagnosis of stable angina is primarily based on history and therefore relies on clinical judgment. In addition, its diagnosis can be extremely challenging because of the frequent transition from unstable to stable angina. Current European guidelines on the management of stable coronary artery disease give increased importance to the pre-test probability, which strongly affects the diagnostic algorithms. Imaging techniques play a greater role in the diagnosis of stable angina than in the past. Conversely, despite recent advances in technology and in the physiological assessment of coronary stenosis, an ever decreasing relevance is conferred to coronary angiography. Another difficult and controversial issue relates to the prognostic benefit of myocardial revascularization. The aim of this position paper is to review the most relevant clinical aspects of the European guidelines on the management of stable coronary artery disease.

ABSTRACT: The number of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) is increasing worldwide. Follow-up strategies after PCI are extremely heterogeneous and can greatly affect the cost of medical care. Of note, clinical evaluations and non-invasive exams are often performed to low risk patients. In the present consensus document, practical advises are provided with respect to a tailored follow-up strategy on the basis of patients' risk profile. Three strategies follow-up have been defined and types and timing of clinical and instrumental evaluations are reported. Clinical and interventional cardiologists, cardiac rehabilitators, and general practitioners, who are in charge to manage post-PCI patients, equally contributed to the creation of the present document.
