Aceite de oliva y riesgo cardiovascular ¿A mayor consumo menos enfermedad?

Olive Oil and Cardiovascular Risk: The Higher the Consumption, the Lower the Risk?

High olive oil intake was associated with lower risk of coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease in two large prospective cohorts of men and women. The substitution of margarine, butter, mayonnaise, and dairy fat with olive oil can have a significant impact on cardiovascular health. The benefits of olive oil intake have been well studied

La coronariografía precoz reduce la mortalidad en SCA sin supradesnivel del ST de alto riesgo

Compare-Acute Sub-Study: Natural History of Non-Culprit Lesions in MI

The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic value of fractional flow reserve (FFR) of non-culprit lesions in STEMI patients.  We analyzed data of all Compare-Acute patients (Comparison Between FFR Guided Revascularization Versus Conventional Strategy in Acute STEMI Patients With MVD) after PCI, from lesions assessed with FFR and treated medically.  The treating

ACC 2020 Virtual | ISCHEMIA: la calidad de vida no es un punto blando

Virtual ACC 2020 | ISCHEMIA: Quality of Life, Not a Soft Endpoint

In the general study, an invasive strategy followed by revascularization (when necessary) vs. an initially conservative strategy with OMT resulted similar in patients with stable CAD with moderate to severe ischemia. A secondary end point of this analysis were angina symptoms and quality of life. Angina symptoms, functional activity and quality of life were assessed

ACC 2020 Virtual | Relación entre la severidad de la isquemia y la enfermedad coronaria

Virtual ACC 2020 | Relationship between Ischemia Severity and CAD

The ISCHEMIA trial enables countless sub-studies. Many of them have made part of the virtual ACC 2020, and among them you will find the present study.  This analysis finds it is the anatomy — rather than ischemia — which predicts events. And even more interesting is the fact that revascularizing this particular anatomy will not

Monitoreo Post Angioplastia

Routine Continuous Monitoring After Angioplasty Might Not Be Necessary

According to a recent study published in Circ. Cardiovasc Interv, after a scheduled angioplasty, the rate of arrhythmia requiring some kind of treatment is very low, low enough to deem unnecessary the routine monitoring of all patients. The standard policy at many institutions is continuous cardiac monitoring for several hours after undergoing coronary angioplasty, with

Reliability of FFR in Patients with Diabetes: Are Other Parameters Necessary?

Diabetes does not seem to alter the results of a fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurement in a given lesion. Recently, expert opinions and small studies had questioned the reliability of FFR in this specific patient subgroup. This new observational study soon to be published in JAMA vanquishes all doubts and confirms the efficacy of this

Inflamación crónica, enfermedad coronaria y cáncer: distintas caras de una misma moneda

Chronic Inflammation, Coronary Artery Disease and Cancer: Same Coin, Different Sides

Low grade inflammation shown by elevated plasma concentrations of high-sensitive C-reactive protein are a risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. There is also evidence to support low grade inflammation could be related to higher risk of cancer.  This prospective study evaluated the relation between low grade systemic inflammation and the risk of cancer in

Pre-TAVR Revascularization: Angiographic or Physiological?

In patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), fractional flow reserve (FFR) guided revascularization is associated with favorable results compared against the traditional angiography guided revascularization.  Given the complete lack of randomized studies, this observational study is the best we have to decide how to guide revascularization in patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis undergoing
