La recanalización de las CTO mejora la calidad de vida

CTO: in Radial Access with Similar Results to Femoral

CTO: in Radial Access with Similar Results to Femoral

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. One of the characteristics of chronic total occlusion (CTO) is the use of two access routes: femoral and radial. The radial approach is safer, but it has not been thoroughly analyzed in this type of PCI. The study looked at 3709 patients undergoing left main percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for

An Effort Worth Your While: Rechanneling vs. Optimal Medical Treatment in Total Occlusions

Successful rechanneling of a chronic total occlusion (currently around 90%) leads to significant improvement in quality of life and symptom frequency in patients with stable chronic angina compared with optimal medical treatment alone. These results are promising and what we ultimately expected, although symptoms, as a primary endpoint in themselves, are in the eye of

EuroPCR 2018 | Consistent CTO Study: Rechanneling with Current Techniques and SYNERGY Stents

This observational study included 231 patients from 6 sites who presented chronic total occlusions and underwent rechanneling procedures using currently available techniques, which were successful in 90% of all cases (210 patients). All patients who underwent successful rechanneling received a SYNERGY stent and most of them underwent intravascular ultrasound (90.5%). There was only 1 patient lost to clinical follow-up

International Conference: Coronary Angioplasty in Chronic Occlusions

The Buenos Aires Cardiovascular Institute (Instituto Cardiovascular de Buenos Aires, ICBA) is pleased to invite you to the International Conference on Coronary Angioplasty in Chronic Occlusions that will be held on March 13th at the ICBA auditorium (Blanco Encalada 1525, 1st floor, Buenos Aires City).   The highlight of the event is the participation of

Disnea y oclusiones totales crónicas: un síntoma que podemos aliviar (o al menos intentarlo)

Dyspnea and Chronic Total Occlusion: A Symptom That We Can (Attempt to) Improve

Dyspnea is one of the most challenging symptoms as regards its assessment and treatment in patients with coronary disease, since it may stem from both cardiac and non-cardiac causes. Patients in whom dyspnea is the sole symptom of coronary disease are at a higher risk of not receiving adequate treatment, and their short- and long-term

Radiation Exposure in Chronic Total Occlusions

Even in the hands of experienced operators, rechanneling and angioplasty of a chronic total occlusion (CTO) results in patients and the whole cath lab team receiving high doses of radiation, according to this registry presented at the American Heart Association 2017 Scientific Sessions. Up to 23% of patients who undergo rechanneling of a CTO receive

TCT 2017 | ORBITA: The Placebo Effect of Angioplasty

Courtesy of the SBHCI. Chronic stable angina and severe coronary lesion patients who undergo angioplasty in a single vessel show no better outcomes than individuals who undergo a placebo sham procedure when it comes to exercise capacity and symptoms, according to this study presented at TCT and published simultaneously in the Lancet. The curious results

¿Debemos comenzar a utilizar IVUS en las CTO?

Should We Begin to Use IVUS in CTO?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Currently, chronic total occlusions (CTO) are one of the obstacles that coronary angioplasties must overcome, particularly with the development of drug-eluting stents (DES) and new devices and strategies for these challenging lesions. However, there is little information on the safety, efficacy, and real clinical benefit of implanting stents of over 60 mm (known as full metal jackets, FMJ).
