Although clinical presentation of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) varies significantly, investigation to confirm the underlying cause of the symptoms can often reveal unusual causes of ACS, or indeed alternative diagnoses which initially present as ACS. As part of the ACS Forum in December 2020, CORONARY CONNECT member Prof. Dr. J. Wouter Jukema reviewed an unusual patient case study which presented initially as ACS.

View this case study discussion and download the accompanying slides for more information. This educational presentation is relevant for cardiologists, including interventional cardiologists, as well as emergency room physicians.

The ACS Forum is a medical educational programme supported by an Independent Educational Grant from Amgen.

Prof. Dr J. Wouter Jukema, MD, PhD, FESC, FACC, is Professor of Cardiology, a past established Clinical Investigator at the Netherlands Heart Foundation and Chairman of “Leiden Vascular Medicine” at Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) in the Netherlands. He received his medical degree from the Free University School of Medicine in Amsterdam and completed his training at the LUMC. He is also founding director of the Durrer Center for Cardiogenetic Research in Amsterdam and co-chairman of the Netherlands Heart Institute. He started his research with the Angiographic Coronary Atherosclerosis Trial “REGRESS”, at the Interuniversity Cardiology Institute of The Netherlands in Utrecht. His current interests, which comprise the majority of topics for his more than 1000 peer reviewed publications (with many in top journals like New England Journal of Medicine, Lancet, Nature Genetics, Nature Reviews, Jama, Science, Circulation, JACC and EHJ) focus on the field of athero-thrombosis and include interventional cardiology as well as atherosclerosis research (vascular biology, lipid modification, diabetes, anti-thrombotics and anti-platelets and genetics) in humans as well as in transgenic animals. Prof. Jukema is principal investigator in several large interventional/athero-thrombosis studies, a member of various national and international athero-thrombosis boards and holder of multiple major (a.o. EU) grants.
