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

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.

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

Can We Lower the Cutoff Threshold in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms?

A new diagnostic tool might change the classical abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) cutoff thresholds of 5.5 and 5 cm for men and women, respectively. The new ultrasound speckle tracking technology can study AAA wall motion in real time and has the potential to become the new standard for diagnostic and therapeutic decisions.  This study looked

Infarction, Stroke and Aortic Emergency Syndromes in the Shadow of the Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has had a negative impact on the most pressing cardio and neurological emergencies, such as strokes or aortic dissection. These emergencies are normally treated in high complexity centers, which is why it is relatively simple to analyze the number of transfers before and after the pandemic.  For some time, care centers have

Un seguimiento mínimo y apropiado reduce la mortalidad luego de una endoprótesis

Detection of Late Complications After EVAR

This work addressed the occurrence of complications after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) for the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms in a cohort of 454 patients with a 5.2-year follow-up. About 25% of patients experience complications of some kind. As opposed to other studies, here, the vast majority of those complications were asymptomatic and had

TAVR via trans-carotidea anestesia local o general

Anesthetic Modes and Their Impact on Elective Endoprostheses

This work supports previous observations on the mortality benefit of regional (and even local) anesthesia in patients who undergo elective endovascular aneurysm repair for the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms. These benefits also translated into a shorter hospital stay, but not into less pulmonary complications, which is what previous studies had suggested. Minimally invasive
