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

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.

Manejo quirúrgico o percutáneo de los leaks mitrales

Surgical or Percutaneous Management of Mitral Leak

Mitral paravalvular leaks are relatively common after surgical mitral replacement, with an incidence of 7%-17%. Most of these are subclinical leaks, a mere echocardiogram finding, but about 3% of patients can develop heart failure, hemolysis, or a combination of both, thus requiring a new intervention. For symptomatic patients, new surgery has been the traditional treatment
