Symptomatic Carotid Arteries: Early or Late Emergency Revascularization?

Symptomatic Carotid Arteries: Early or Late Emergency Revascularization?

Carotid endarterectomy continues to be the safest technique for emergency revascularization. However, 48 hours after index event, different strategy outcomes will become comparable.  Multiple advances in device development have brought promising results for carotid revascularization patients with symptomatic stenosis. Regardless these developments, optimal revascularization timing after index event remains unclear.  This study included patients with

Management of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms in 2021

Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are those of >3 cm aortic diameter.  They run the risk of rupture and ensuing death by bleeding. In consequence, they are treated to repair the aneurysm before it ruptures.  In this regard, the most relevant predictor of rupture is aneurysm diameter. That is, the greater the aneurysm, the greater the

Nuevo estudio confirma la durabilidad del TAVI a 5 años

Fluoroscopy vs. Ultrasound Guided Femoral Access in TAVR

Ideally, we will not puncture the femoral artery blindly if we are planning to use a big caliber releasing device and a percutaneous closure device during TAVR. The risk of a high or low puncture or the presence of a lateral branch compromising the puncture site might become a major vascular and bleeding complication.  There


One Year of Successful Carotid Artery Stenting with the CGuard Device

This registry of daily clinical practice suggests that this specifically designed double-mesh carotid stent is safe and associated with a minimal and acceptable occurrence of neurological events up to 12 months of follow-up. This double-mesh stent has already been tested, and its short- and long-term efficacy has been proven. However, more recent data have challenged the

Asymptomatic Carotid Lesions and Cognitive Impairment: Does Intervention Play a Role?

This study was designed to determine the effect of carotid endarterectomy/angioplasty on early (baseline vs. 3 months) and late (baseline vs. >5 months) cognitive function in patients with asymptomatic lesions. This systematic research included 31 non-randomized studies. Regarding the immediate post-operative period, 24 of these papers reported significant improvement in cognitive function; one study reported significant deterioration;

ESC 2021 | ACST-2: CAS vs endarterectomía en pacientes asintomáticos

ESC 2021 | ACST-2: CAS vs Endarterectomy in Asymptomatic Patients

The ACST-2 was designed to compare long-term outcomes of carotid artery stenting (CAS) vs carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in patients with asymptomatic stenosis.  Prior to this study we had the German registry including 18,000 patients undergoing CAS and 86,000 receiving CEA between 2014 and 2019. At 30 days, disabling stroke rate was 0.7% for both strategies.

Fenestrated Endografts as Treatment for Type I Endoleak: What is the Price of Success?

Both fenestrated and branched endografts are effective to treat patients after failure of their initial endograft due to significant type I endoleak. This situation is costly both because of the devices themselves, and also due to the several endovascular and surgical procedures required. Failure of an endograft to treat an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm due to

SOLACI PERIPHERAL | Type Ib Endoleak Correction in Patient After Minimally Invasive Hybrid Treatment in Type A Aortic Disection

Here is a new SOLACI PERIPHERAL Case! In this opportunity, Dr. Daniel Zanuttini (Arg.) presents “Type Ib Endoleak Correction in Patient After Minimally Invasive Hybrid Treatment in Type A Aortic Disection”. This is the 8th clinical case presented by SOLACI Peripheral. The purpose of this space is to encourage and further the exchange of experiences

Discrepancy between Angina and Ischemia Repeats in Peripheral Artery Disease

Three randomized studies showed exercising significantly improves 6-minute walk outcomes in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). However, many participants randomized to exercise did not perceive changes, and sometimes even got worse.  These findings suggest a significant discrepancy between objective and perceived change in walking ability among PAD patients.   400 patients with peripheral artery disease
