Clinical Investigators from the Krannert Cardiovascular Research Center at the Indiana University School of Medicine will present an introduction into a new groundbreaking classification by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society regarding acute myocardial infarction during Vascular 2023 at 8:30 am EDT, Sunday, Oct. 29, at the Palais, 518 ABC, in Montréal, Canada.
KCVRC Executive Director Rohan Dharmakumar, MS, PhD, is co-chairing the session and speaking on the CCS-AMI along with Keyur Vora, MD, MS, FACC, cardiologist and assistant research professor of medicine at the IU School of Medicine, who will present on CCS-AMI clinical case series.
They are part of an expert consensus writing group and driving force that developed the framework for the new CCS classification of acute myocardial infarction alongside other eminent cardiovascular research experts, including Andreas Kumar, MD, MSC, of Northern Ontario School of Medicine, chair, and Michelle M. Graham, MD, FRCPC, FCCS-CAIC, CanCARE, co-chair, which will be featured in the upcoming special consensus paper in Canadian Journal of Cardiology.
Dr. Dharmakumar, a pioneer in the scientific development of hemorrhagic myocardial infarction, has dedicated two decades of groundbreaking work and collaborated with Dr. Kumar and other leading cardiovascular researchers. This collaborative effort has resulted in the new CCS-AMI classification, nearly 50 years after the establishment of the CCS-Angina classification in 1972.
Dr. Keyur Vora, a dedicated cardiologist and trialist, is working toward developing innovative diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for hemorrhagic myocardial infarction. This is a monumental step forward in cardiology.
“Join us for a groundbreaking introduction of the new CCS-AMI classification – a true game changer in cardiovascular care at Vascular 2023,” Dr. Dharmakumar said, “and look for our consensus paper in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology on Oct. 29. We look forward to sharing our pathway to this classification and fielding questions."
