EuroPCR 2019 | La durabilidad del TAVI ofrece ciertas garantías a 8 y 10 años

EuroPCR 2019 | TAVR Durability Offers Certain Guarantees at 8 and 10 Years
It has been 3 years since EuroPCR 2016 and the presentation of the first data on possible transcatheter valve degeneration, which sparked fear regarding the possibility that transcatherter aortic ...

EuroPCR 2019 | El seguimiento a largo plazo de los nuevos bloqueos de rama izquierda post TAVI es tranquilizador con ciertas precauciones

EuroPCR 2019 | Long-Term Follow-Up for New Left Bundle Branch Block After TAVR Is Reassuring with Certain Precautions
Long-term follow-up of patients who underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and developed left bundle branch block (LBBB) after the procedure seems reassuring. Although it is not ...

¿Qué pasa cuando nos encandilamos con el tronco y no vemos el resto de las lesiones?

What Happens When We Are Blinded by Left Main Disease and Ignore All Other Lesions?
According to this recent Excel analysis, mortality seems to rise when the SYNTAX II score is not taken into account when defining the revascularization strategy. The difference does not reach ...

EuroPCR 2019 | CHOICE: válvula balón expandible vs autoexpandibles en pacientes de alto riesgo

EuroPCR 2019 | MeRes-1: Bioresorbable Scaffolds Return with Renewed Strength
A small number of highly selected patients presents good outcomes with new bioresorbable scaffold MeRes, but much more evidence is necessary to bring back the concept. The ...

EuroPCR 2019 | Stent Firehawk continúa con sus buenos resultados a 2 años frente al Xience
