El tratamiento endovascular parece superior a la cirugía en aneurismas rotos

Safety in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Surveillance Programs

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) rupture rate in the UK justifies the current surveillance programs and bring ease to some physicians that at some point have cast a shadow on their efficacy. This study also endorses reference thresholds to intervene patients. In 2009, the UK National Health Service (NHS) implemented a AAA national surveillance scheme where

Efecto a largo plazo de los balones liberadores con bajas dosis de paclitaxel

Long Term Effect of Low Dose Paclitaxel Coated Balloon

The beneficial effect of low dose drug coated balloons with paclitaxel is sustained in time according to this randomized study. In a nutshell, this study has shown a significant statistical difference in favor of paclitaxel coated balloons vs. conventional PCI at 2 years. The safety and efficacy of new generation low dose drug coated balloons


Are Aortic Stenosis and Kidney Dysfunction Associated?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Aortic stenosis happens in 2.8% of patients over 75, and is even more frequent in dialysis patients. However, it remains unclear whether kidney dysfunction increases the risk of aortic stenosis. The present study looked at 1,121,875 patients from the SCREAM project (Stockholm CREAtinine Measurements).   Mean age was 50, and

El precio de ver demasiadas series por TV: la calidad del sueño y la aterosclerosis subclínica

The Price of Binge Watching: Subclinical Atherosclerosis and Sleep Quality

Fragmented sleep and lower sleeping time have a higher risk of subclinical atherosclerosis in multiple territories. These results highlight the importance of good sleeping habits for good health and against cardiovascular disease. This comes out when binge watching online series on TV or any mobile device has become the norm. Online “streaming” is silently stressing

¿La epidemia de obesidad pone en riesgo la salud de los pacientes y los médicos?

Is the Obesity Epidemic Putting Patients’ and Physicians’ Health at Risk?

Is the Obesity Epidemic Putting Patients’ and Physicians’ Health at Risk? In addition to the obvious negative effect on patients, obesity can also affect Interventional Cardiologists’ health, seeing as it involves increased exposure to radiation.   Operators are clearly and increasingly exposed to radiation as patient body mass index (BMI) increases. Radiation exposure might be

1- Everolimus-Eluting Stents Finally Have a Rival and Not Just a “Non-Inferior” Stent In this large randomized trial, there were significant differences as regards both target-lesion failure and target-vessel-related infarction, which persisted through a 2-year follow-up and favored treatment with an ultrathin-strut bioresorbable-polymer sirolimus-eluting stent (Orsiro) compared with the gold standard, a durable-polymer everolimus-eluting stent

Tasa de stroke post cirugía vs angioplastia coronaria en un análisis de más de 10.000 pacientes

Vascular Surgeons of the Future in the Endovascular Era

The use of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms is widely spread, due to its minimally invasive approach, rapid recovery, and better short-term survival. Approximately 60% of all infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) repairs in Europe and 85% in the United States are by EVAR. A decade ago, we believed

¿Beneficio adicional del bypass radial en la cirugía de revascularización miocárdica?

Infrainguinal Bypass Following Failed Endovascular Intervention Has a Different Outcome

We often inform our patients we should first approach the superficial femoral with an endovascular intervention, and that should it fail or develop restenosis, we could always resort to a bypass. We were not lying when we’d assume a bypass following endovascular intervention would have the same outcome as a primary bypass. Simply put, no

The Importance of Tibial Artery Patency in the Rechanneling of the Femoral Artery

After rechanneling occluded superficial femoro-popliteal arteries, interventional physicians are left with the question of how to proceed with infrapopliteal disease. This work (soon to be published in Eur J Vasc Endovasc Surg) shows us the importance of achieving patency in tibial arteries so as to obtain better mid-term outcomes. The gist is that, after an
