Validating Consensus on Post TAVR Conduction Disturbances in the Clinical Practice

Little over a year ago, JACC published the expert consensus on the management of post transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) conduction disturbances. This publication homogenized criteria and was welcomed by operators who, when in doubt, tended to prematurely indicate definite pacemaker implantation or delayed discharge in order to monitor patients.  These criteria, however, was nothing

New Unexpected Data on Non-Culprit Vessels in MI

Patients with acute myocardial infarction presenting lesions in multiple vessels is not associated with reduced infarct size in non-culprit lesions, even when functionally significant.  Animal models suggest brief periods of ischemia in non-infarct territories (non-culprit) might protect culprit territory thanks to remote ischemic preconditioning.  This pre-conditioning, according to this perspective, would reduce reperfusion injury and

18/05 | Update on the treatment of acute coronary syndromes without ST segment elevation

Another virtual event open to the whole community! At SOLACI we want to continue promoting continuous medical education and, in that sense, to expand the development of interventional cardiology in Latin America. For this reason, we bring you a new educational proposal, this time an Update on the treatment of acute coronary syndromes without ST

La clave para tratar strokes: saber cuando detenerse

The Key to Treating Stroke: Knowing When to Stop

With endovascular therapy as the standard of care in ischemic stroke and with a community of interventional cardiologists increasingly committed to assisting neurologists in providing 24/7 thrombectomy, staying informed is paramount. The number of thrombectomy attempts with retractable stent (>3) is associated with hemorrhagic transformation beyond age, baseline NIHSS (National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale)

ST-Segment Elevation Infarction After TAVR: Problems in Every Aspect

For interventional cardiologists, treating an ST-segment elevation infarction in a patient with transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is challenging in many ways. Longer door-to-balloon times and higher rates of primary angioplasty failure than in the general population are translated into very high short- and mid-term mortality. This multicenter study, recently published in JACC, included 118 patients

Diagnosis and Treatment of Vaccine-Induced Thrombosis

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is an extremely rare manifestation of cerebrovascular disease.  In the last few days, this pathology has sadly gained fame due to its association with two vector-based vaccines against SARR COV19.  These are Ad26.COV2.S (Johnson & Johnson) and ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 (AstraZeneca). There have not been any reports of thrombosis or thrombocytopenia from
