TAVI en bajo riesgo con “cero” mortalidad y “cero” stroke

Diastolic Dysfunction Should Be Considered in TAVR

Diastolic Dysfunction Should Be Considered in TAVR

Aortic stenosis increases afterload creating hypertrophy as a compensation mechanism to maintain minute volume. This leads to left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD). More than half of patients presenting aortic stenosis have LVDD and myocardial fibrosis, which is a mortality predictor in surgery.   At present, there is contradicting evidence in TAVR.   The study looked

1) The CULPRIT-SHOCK Study Is Finally Published in NEJM and It Is Bound to Change Guidelines During SOLACI’s coverage of the TCT 2017 Congress in Denver, Colorado, we already mentioned some of the outcomes of this study that has arrived to revolutionize clinical practice, given the differences between its results and those of the classic SHOCK trial, which has marked

New Light on the ‘Forsaken Valve’

Tricuspid regurgitation is frequent and mostly secondary to right ventricle and tricuspid annulus dilation. Tricuspid regurgitation has been associated to mortality increase, even though historically the importance of this valve has been disregarded compared to the other three. Tricuspid surgical repair has seen good results, but it is mostly done in the context of another valve repair. Isolated

Reparación de la válvula tricúspide con la técnica del Mitra Clip

Tricuspid valve repair with the MitraClip technique

Current surgical and medical treatment options for severe tricuspid regurgitation are extremely limited. However, this historically forgotten valve seems to have the option of transcatheter repair, nowadays.   This observational study assessed the safety and feasibility of the MitraClip system for patients with severe chronic tricuspid regurgitation.   All patients presented severe tricuspid regurgitation and

Closing off the Appendage While Performing Cardiac Surgery Results in a Reduction in Risk of Embolic Stroke

Closing off the left appendage as an add-on procedure while performing other cardiac surgery in patients with atrial fibrillation resulted in a reduction in risk of embolic stroke of nearly 40% over 12 months, according to an analysis carried out on the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) database.   Patients who had surgical appendage occlusion had
