VIVA Post-Market Study: More Evidence for the Valve-in-Valve Technique
Courtesy of the SBHCI. Bioprosthetic surgically-implanted valves degenerate over time, while patients become too old and are at high risk for reoperation.   Transcatheter ...

reemplazo valvular mitral por catéter por enfermedad de la válvula nativa

Mitral Valve Global Registry: transcatheter mitral valve replacement due to native valve disease
Courtesy of the SBHCI. The risk of surgical mitral valve replacement in patients with significant annular calcification is very high. There are isolated reports of transcatheter mitral ...

stent

Leaders Free ACS: Good Results for the Polymer-Free Stent at 2 Years in ACS
 Courtesy of the SBHCI. Guidelines recommend dual antiplatelet therapy for a year in patients admitted with coronary acute syndrome. However, patients at high risk for bleeding who ...

EVOLVE II: Diabetes Substudy: Results at 3 Years after the SYNERGY Stent in Diabetics
Courtesy of SBHCI Diabetic patients have worse evolution after coronary PCI. Drug eluting stents with bioresorbable polymers were designed to facilitate arterial healing, and reduce ...

Centera Valvula expandible

CENTERA: Results of the New Self-Expandable Valve
This new device offers the advantage of a lower frame height, which reduces the chance of coronary occlusion. The delivery system is totally motorized and the valve can be repositioned. In ...

ARTE: ¿AsEl fin de la aspirina para los pacientes anticoagulados que reciben angioplastiapirina o aspirina más clopidogrel post TAVI?

ARTE: Aspirin or Aspirin and Clopidogrel after TAVR?
Courtesy of SBHCI. This study presented at Euro PCR and simultaneously published by JACC Cardiovascular Interventions poses a question that has remained unanswered since the start of ...

FFR post angioplastia

DEFINE FLAIR and IFR SWEDEHEART: Safety in Revascularization Based on FFR and iFR in Both Stable and ACS Patients
The safety of physiology-based coronary revascularisation has been supported by evidence for years now. DEFER (1998-2001) was one of the first related studies. However, major changes in device ...

Biodegradable-Polymer Biolimus-Eluting

DESSOLVE III: Xience vs. MiStent
The MiStent device is made of cobalt-chromium, with struts of up to 64 µm thick. It is coated with a completely absorbable polymer that contains a microcrystalline form of sirolimus that ...

corevalve

REPRISE III: Lotus and CoreValve Compared in High-Risk or Inoperable Patients
The efficacy of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has been well-established. However, its limitations include suboptimal deployment and paravalvular leak. The Lotus system is a fully ...

Post DES Dual Antiplatelet Therapy Still under Debate

TOPIC: Benefits of Switching Dual Antiplatelet Therapy in Patients with ACS
Newer P2Y12 blockers are the front-line treatment and dual antiplatelet therapy is indicated for 1 year after acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Both prasugrel and ticagrelor offer more ...

EuroCTO: Rechanneling vs. Optimal Medical Treatment in Total Occlusions
Courtesy of the SBHCI. Chronic total occlusions represent around 18% of all coronary lesions. However, they account for just 5% of all interventions, which means that many patients only ...

COMPARE-ACUTE: FFR para guiar la revascularización de vasos no culpables en la angioplastia primaria

COMPARE-ACUTE: FFR-Guided Non-Culprit Vessel Revascularization in Primary Angioplasty
Courtesy of the SBHCI. About 50% of patients admitted with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction also present lesions in another vessel. Whether to treat these or not, and ...

AIDA: La trombosis de las plataformas bioabsorbibles sigue en la mira de los estudios

AIDA: bioresorbable scaffold thrombosis still a concern in studies
Courtesy of the SBHCI. This study presented at PCR and simultaneously published by NEJM still challenges the safety of bioresorbable scaffolds.   This was a multicenter ...

DES_angioplastia_primaria

PRISON IV: DES with resorbable polymer vs. DES with permanent polymer in total occlusions
Courtesy of SBHCI. The PRISON IV trial compared the sirolimus eluting stent with ultra-thin struts and biodegradable polymer vs. the second-generation everolimus-eluting stent with thin ...

SENTINEL Study: Cerebral Protection During TAVR

[SURTAVI] Sub-study of neurological events: more evidence in favor of TAVR
Courtesy of SBHCI. The occurrence of a periprocedural neurological events is associated to an increased risk of death and morbidity at long term, both for transcatheter aortic valve ...

Surgeon manipulating a flexible catheter

NOTION: TAVI with low risk at 4 year follow up
Courtesy of the SBHCI. There is little data about the use of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis at low surgical risk. Many of ...

simposio SOLACI en EURO PCR 2017

SOLACI symposium at EURO PCR 2017
The Latin American Society of Interventional Cardiology proudly joined the international meeting “Euro PCR 2017”, celebrated on May 16 to 19 in the city of Paris, France. During the event, a ...
