SOLACI PERIPHERAL | 6th Clinical Case: Common, Superficial and Deep Femoral Artery Recanalization

Here is a new SOLACI PERIPHERAL Case! In this opportunity, Dr. Ana Paula Mollón (Arg.) presents “Common, Superficial and Deep Femoral Artery Recanalization”. This is the 6th clinical case presented by SOLACI Peripheral. The purpose of this space is to encourage and further the exchange of experiences and opinions, to keep advancing our knowledge in

La endarterectomía precoz parece superior a la angioplastia carotidea en pacientes sintomáticos

Contralateral Occluded Carotid Defines Revascularization Strategy

A significative lesion to the carotid artery in addition to contralateral carotid occlusion is an obvious factor of high risk for a revascularization procedure. However, this might be true for surgery but not for carotid artery stenting according to this recent publication in JACC. The presence of contralateral carotid occlusion has been established as high

Solution for Type 1A Endoleaks After Abdominal Endoprosthesis

Proximal type 1 endoleaks after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysmal repair are challenging to solve, with no existing consensus on the proper solution. This work compared the most radical solution to the problem vs. a more conservative—though still challenging—option. The first one was the surgical explantation of the endoprosthesis with aortic reconstruction, while the more “conservative”

Aspiration Thrombectomy vs. Stent Retriever Thrombectomy: Is the Site of Stroke the Key to Make a Choice?

Thrombectomy with stent retriever and direct aspiration have been considered equally effective in the treatment of anterior circulation acute ischemic stroke. But are they really? This study recently published in Stroke compares the safety and efficacy of both techniques per occlusion segment. This study analyzed data from the MR CLEAN registry at every endovascular therapy

Screening for Intracranial Aneurysm in Patients with Coarctation: Is It Cost-Effective?

Patients with a history of coarctation of the aorta have a higher prevalence of intracranial aneurysm and frequently suffer subarachnoid hemorrhage at younger ages than the general population. Read also: FREEDOM with FFR: Different Outcomes? Adding a screening stage at age 30—instead of just at ages 10 and 20—is cost-effective. Known data about the prognosis

01- New Valvular Heart Disease Guidelines with Key TAVI and Mitral Regurgitation Updates Valvular heart disease management guidelines were updated last week by the AHA and the ACC.  Read more HERE 02- High Risk Anatomy Challenges ISCHEMIA Outcomes According to this recent analysis published in JAHA, patients with stable Ischemic heart disease and high-risk anatomy benefit from revascularization

Subutilización del tratamiento médico en enfermedad vascular periférica

Optimal Medical Treatment Under-used in Vascular Peripheral Disease

Less than half of patients undergoing endovascular revascularization for peripheral artery disease to their lower limbs are discharged with optimal medical treatment.  Their traditional risk factors are predictors of a more comprehensive treatment; however, women, patients with higher risk of thrombosis, and those more likely to lose a lower limb, are far from being treated

Diabetes y enfermedad vascular periférica: viejas drogas con nueva evidencia

Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease: Old Drugs, New Evidence

This paper, recently published in JAHA, showed that patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus exhibiting lower-limb vascular disease benefit from combining cilostazol and clopidogrel. Treatment for at least 6 months with clopidogrel (75 mg/QD) plus cilostazol (100 mg/BID) significantly reduces ischemic events—including stroke, infarction, and death from vascular causes—compared with clopidogrel monotherapy. Adding cilostazol reduces ischemic events, but that

SOLACI PERIPHERAL | 5th Clinical Case: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm with Hostile Neck

New clinical case from SOLACI PERIPHERAL! This time, we present a case featuring an abdominal aortic aneurysm with hostile neck. With this, we wrap up an intense year during which we published 5 clinical cases to deepen and stimulate the exchange between Latin American interventionist colleagues. Tell us what you think about this case using

Aortic Aneurysms Treated with Endologix AFX Require Special Followup

An FDA document recently published reminds doctors and patients of the need of annual follow up of abdominal aortic aneurysm patients receiving Endologix AFX endoprostheses, with imaging, and for life.  The reason behind this recommendation is the risk of type III leaks.  In 2019, the FDA had alerted us against this issue after finding a

¿Cirugía bariátrica por cateterismo?

Transcatheter Bariatric Surgery?

This pilot study has shown transcatheter embolotherapy targeted to the left gastric artery is well tolerated and promotes significant weight reduction compared against a sham procedure. Obesity has been linked to higher rates of cardiovascular and metabolic events. Diets and medical strategies are often ineffective and hardly sustainable over time.  Bariatric procedures, though effective, are
