During the course of and after a myocardial ischemia-reperfusion insult, ventricular arrhythmia (VA) may have several single or overlapping potential substrates. Some of these may not be associated with morphological and functional changes, whereas others may have individual susceptibility. Nevertheless, cardiac magnetic resonance currently offers a comprehensive and highly effective toolset for the evaluation of a risk of VA on a patient basis after a myocardial infarction. Indeed, cardiac magnetic resonance has established itself as a reference for the evaluation of the myocardial function and properties, using respectively, cine and tissue characterization imaging to detect and evaluate the extent of acute myocardial injuries, scars and remodeling. This article describes and discusses imaging strategies used to evaluate the substrates for VA in the setting of a myocardial infarction. [less ▲]

The management of acute coronary syndrome in Europe is covered by various European Society of Cardiology guidelines, which although valuable, are complex and may not always provide clear guidance in everyday clinical practice. Consequently, implementation of the guideline recommendations is frequently suboptimal. To complicate matters further, a wealth of new data from large trials examining novel anti-thrombotic agents will become or are already available, necessitating guideline updates. This article summarizes the gaps between current guideline-recommended treatment of acute coronary syndrome and daily practice as dictated by the evidence base, including recent trials. Reasons for the suboptimal implementation of the current European Society of Cardiology guidelines and possible solutions to making these more practice oriented are presented. [less ▲]
