El Impella otorga seguridad en la ATC del TCI no protegido de alto riesgo

Impella Improves Safety in High Risk Unprotected Left Main PCI

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. The incidence of unprotected left main severe stenosis ranges between 4 and 8%, and it’s mostly associated with multivessel disease. The use of left ventricular support devices in high risk unprotected left main PCI is on the rise, but not much information available in this regard. Read also: “Prior assistance

Cirugía para mejorar la sobrevida en insuficiencia tricuspidea aislada

Tricuspid and Bicuspid Valves Present More Coincidences Than Expected

There is more and more positive evidence that new-generation transcatheter valves, originally designed to treat tricuspid aortic valves, work perfectly fine on bicuspid aortic valves. A comparison of computerized tomography (CT) scans obtained before and after the procedure showed that the most commonly used devices appear to reshape the aortic annulus to the same degree

Lesión de múltiples vasos y enfermedad carotidea severa ¿Cómo proceder?

Multivessel Disease and Severe Carotid Stenosis: How to Proceed

Myocardial revascularization surgery (CABG) is the most frequent of all cardiovascular surgeries and is still the gold standard to treat multivessel disease.  Between 6 and 8% of these patients present concomitant carotid stenosis and it is associated with increased peri and post procedural stroke rates during and after surgery. To prevent carotid stenosis, either PCI or endarterectomy

¿Fin de la discusión sobre el impacto del marcapaso post TAVI?

End of Discussion on the Impact of Pacemaker After TAVR?

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is often associated with conduction abnormalities, which usually end with permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation in 10-40% of patients. Factors predisposing to PPM after TAVR have been studied in great detail, but their short- and long-term clinical impact is still controversial.   Recently, outcomes from a large cohort of patients were
