The Latin American Society of Interventional Cardiology has signed a cooperation agreement with the Stent — Save a Life! Initiative, a project created by the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) and PCR in 2009. Its aim is to reduce morbidity and mortality in patients with acute coronary syndromes worldwide. The mission of this Initiative is to save lives by improving access to guidelines complying with primary percutaneous coronary intervention therapies in patients suffering from acute myocardial infarction all over the world.
The agreement was signed on May 20th, 2019, during the annual Stent – Save a Life! Initiative forum held a day before the EuroPCR 2019 Congress in Paris. During the same event, Uruguay also signed a cooperation and endorsement agreement with the Initiative through attendees Dr. Ignacio Batista and Dr. Jorge Mayol.
