Provide a clear understanding of the concept of MINS, of the risks associated with this situation and discuss the potential changes in management that should be undertaken to try to minimize the consequences 



Perioperative myocardial ischemia/damage/injury after non-cardiac surgery (MINS) are leading causes of morbidity and mortality. A minority of such cardiac complications are associated with clinical signs/symptoms and their vast majority is infra-clinical.  The originality of this webinar is that it will combine guidelines and clinical reasoning tools for decision-making for individual patients. The webinar will be built on clinical scenarios in order to promote clinical reasoning tools.  


Learning Objectives

  • Describe the diagnosis and early detection of perioperative myocardial ischemia/damage/injury after non-cardiac surgery (MINS) with an emphasis on both clinically manifest and infra-clinical complications.  
  • Apply judicious decisional algorithms to help detect these cardiac complications as early as possible 
  • Review guidelines for the risk and management stratification of these cardiac complications and propose clinical reasoning tools for decision-making for individual patients 
  • Review the existing therapeutic attempts that have addressed the management of MINS 


Practical skills to be acquired after attending this Webinar

This webinar will enable participants to: 

Create/improve clinical reasoning tools, based on published Guidelines, that will combine risk stratification WITH management stratification.  Both risk and management stratification will be proposed in a continuity of care: pre-operative; intra-operative; immediate post-operative (e.g. PACU); delayed post-operative (in-hospital) and late post-operative (months/years after surgery, anaesthesia and perioperative care).  


Effective skills acquired after attending this Webinar

The participants are aware of:  

Need to earlier detection of ischemia and aggressive use of guidelines 

Need of cognitive and decisional support 

Different manifestations of perioperative ischemia that require a tailored approach 


Method to promote adult active learning:

This webinar will include: 

  1. Clinical case scenarios to trigger discussion and increase interactivity and engagement. Results of different approaches will lead to discussions points.    
  1. Q&A sessions: to answer questions brought up by the host and submitted by the audience (in real-time). Questions will be filtered by the support staff to prioritise relevance. 


Needs analysis

Perioperative ischemia particularly in its NSTEMI aspect is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality and it continues to affect a large population. As the patient population is growing older as a result of technological advancements and sicker it is expected for perioperative ischemic episodes to continue. Such episodes not only affect the outcomes of surgical procedures and the patients’ quality of life but also translate into enormous associated costs. It is therefore a trifold need to increase awareness and knowledge of it.
