Biolimus and Everolimus Eluting Stents in Coronary Artery Disease: Similar Safety?

Courtesy of Dr. Guillermo Migliaro. Events such as very late stent thrombosis and restenosis after first generation DES stenting were associated to the inflammatory response of site implantation. The presence of a durable or permanent polymer was thought to play a central role in said inflammatory process, which caused, among other things, delayed re-endothelialization and

Aspirin Desensitization in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease

There are limited data on aspirin desensitization in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). The aim of this study was to test the safety and efficacy of a rapid desensitization protocol inpatients with a history of aspirin sensitivity about to receive PCI.   This was a prospective multicenter observational study, carried out in seven Italian

PROMISE Subanalysis: Potential Benefits of CT Angiography over Functional Studies in Patients with Symptoms Suggesting CAD

Original Title: Outcomes of anatomical versus functional testing for coronary artery disease. Presenter: Douglas PS. Early this year, the PROMISE trial was not able to confirm that testing patients with chest painusingcomputed tomography angiography (CTA) instead of functional tests, affects clinical outcomes, even though several sub analysis are currently suggesting other additional benefits,including enhanced diagnostic
