TCT 2020 | Ticagrelor Monotherapy After ST-Segment Elevation Infarction
Ticagrelor monotherapy after 3 months of dual antiplatelet therapy in patients who experienced ST-segment elevation infarction significantly reduces major bleeding without increasing ...

TCT 2020 | Initial Studies Show Incredible Results with Lithotripsy in Calcified Lesions
Intravascular coronary lithotripsy shows promise for the improvement of angioplasty in severely calcified lesions, according to data from the DISRUPT CAD III study, published in JACC ...

TCT 2020 | Nueva información sobre el valor del FFR antes y después de la angioplastia

TCT 2020 | Fewer Symptoms and Events when Optimizing with iFR
Symptomatic patients undergoing PCI with no residual ischemia confirmed by iFR have superior symptom improvement at one year vs. patients who did not receive the optimization.  ...

TCT 2020 | Nueva información sobre el valor del FFR antes y después de la angioplastia

TCT 2020 | The Myth of Biodegradable Polymers Seems to Have Come to an End
This is the largest and newest study to compare drug eluting stents with durable polymers vs. biodegradable or bioresorbable polymers. As is usually the case, the theory clashes with ...

TCT 2020 | Nueva información sobre el valor del FFR antes y después de la angioplastia

TCT 2020 | New Information about Pre and Post PCI FFR Value
The TARGET FFR and DEFINE-FLOW studies were presented at TCT 2020 which have offer a deeper perspective on the value of FFR, not only before but also after PCI. TARGET ...

TCT 2020 | Administrar el comprimido de prasugrel molido previo a la angioplastia

TCT 2020 | Crushed Prasugrel Administration prior PCI
Prehospital administration of crushed tablets of prasugrel loading dose in the ambulance while patient is on his way to primary PCI does not improve reperfusion markers compared against ...

TCT 2020 | Prophylactic Angioplasty for Vulnerable Plaques
Patients with vulnerable plaque identified by means of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) are at a significantly increased risk of adverse cardiovascular ...

TCT 2020 | Using OCT to Detect Vulnerable Plaque even with Negative FFR
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has proven useful in diabetic patients, even those with negative FFR.  These findings make us rethink the ischemia and ...

TCT 2020 | Ticagrelor Monotherapy After ST-Segment Elevation Infarction
Ticagrelor monotherapy after 3 months of dual antiplatelet therapy in patients who experienced ST-segment elevation infarction significantly reduces major bleeding without increasing ...

TCT 2020 | Xience se suma a la evidencia de doble antiagregación corta en alto riesgo de sangrado

TCT 2020 | Xience in Favor of Short Dual Antiaggregation Therapy with High Bleeding Risk
Following with aspirin alone after a short period of dual antiaggregation therapy (DAPT), 1 to 3 months, did not increase ischemic events in patients receiving a Xience stent while significantly ...

TCT 2020 | Administrar el comprimido de prasugrel molido previo a la angioplastia

TCT 2020 | Crushed Prasugrel Administration prior PCI
Prehospital administration of crushed tablets of prasugrel loading dose in the ambulance while patient is on his way to primary PCI does not improve reperfusion markers compared against ...

TCT 2020 | El TAVI parece la solución para todas las válvulas biológicas disfuncionantes

TCT 2020 | TAVR Appears to Be the Solution for All Dysfunctional Biological Valves
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) results durable at 5 years to treat failed surgical bioprosthetic valves and at one year to treat valves percutaneously. Regardless the type of ...

TCT 2020 | Diferencias en stroke entre SAPIEN 3 y Evolut R que generan sorpresa

TCT 2020 | Surprising Differences in Stroke between SAPIEN 3 and Evolut R
One-year outcomes of the head to head trial between CoreValve Evolut R vs Sapien 3 showed a significantly higher difference in stroke vs. patients receiving the self-expanding valve (Sapien 3 ...
