Myocardial Revascularization Surgery Hits a Plateau

Myocardial Revascularization Surgery Hits a Plateau

Hopes were raised high by the ARTS study, when set to show the benefit of bilateral internal mammary arteries (BIMA) during coronary artery bypass graft surgery compared over the use of a single internal mammary artery (SIMA) at 10 year follow up, but only one sub-study was able to show an advantage over radial grafts.

Mortalidad a un año en infarto post PCI

ICELAND MI: Unrecognized MI Have Similar Prognosis to Recognized MI

At 10-year follow-up, unrecognized or silent MIs have similar mortality to clinically recognized MI and, even though this does not justify routine screening, these findings call for more aggressive prevention.   Unrecognized MI, detected by MRI, is associated to long term mortality risk similar to that of recognized MI; therefore, these patients have higher risk

1- High-Sensitivity Troponins Turned All Events into Infarctions; the 4th Universal Definition Clarifies Things Myocardial infarction or myocardial injury? The Fourth Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction (an update of the 2012 version) is here to clarify that not all cases of elevated cardiac troponin values are acute myocardial infarctions.

Stent directo vs angioplastia convencional y sus interacciones con la trombo-aspiración

Direct Stenting vs. Conventional Angioplasty and Their Interaction with Thrombus Aspiration

The rates of direct stenting are higher among patients randomized to thrombus aspiration. The rates of clinical events and myocardial reperfusion did not differ significantly between a direct stenting strategy vs. predilation and stenting, and no interaction was observed as regards thrombus aspiration. Several preliminary studies have emerged from the hypothesis that a direct stenting

More Evidence For MitraClip in High Risk Patients with Severe Tricuspid Regurgitation

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) has a negative impact in the long run. Several reports have shown that, in high risk inoperable patients, transcatheter edge-to-edge valve repair with MitraClip is feasible, safe and has good results, but there is still a long way to go. The present study looked at 24 consecutive

SOLACI thanks the 210 attendees ─physicians, nurses, technicians and other professionals. Without them, we would not have achieved such scientific success at these regional sessions. We would also like to extend our appreciation to the Guatemalan Cardiology Association, to the organization, and to the entire Guatemala for the hospitality and generosity they graciously bestowed upon

Great Dispersion in the Prognosis of Patients with Angina and No Coronary Lesions

The prognosis of patients with symptoms of angina (with all their subjectivity) in a setting of no significant coronary lesions is widely varied. It is not as benign as we initially thought and patients do not present as many events as “regular” patients with associated severe coronary lesions. The literature owed us data on the
