Detection of Late Complications After EVAR

Detection of Late Complications After EVAR

This work addressed the occurrence of complications after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) for the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms in a cohort of 454 patients with a 5.2-year follow-up. About 25% of patients experience complications of some kind. As opposed to other studies, here, the vast majority of those complications were asymptomatic and had

Impact of Edge to Edge Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve Repair

Reducing tricuspid regurgitation with transcatheter valve repair is associated to improved liver function, which is often ignored by many cardiologists. This is especially true in cases with deteriorated liver function prior valve repair. Instead, kidney function did not show any changes. Transcatheter tricuspid valve repair seems attractive especially in patients with liver failure. Edge to

Patients: What They Really Want to Know about Their Disease

When we decide that 30-day mortality to repair an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is at least twice as high with conventional surgery compared against endovascular treatment, many of us think choosing a strategy is far from hard, and recent stats show exactly that. However, are we sure our patient agrees with us, or at least

Descending Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms: Is There a New Plan A?

The last available evidence suggests that open surgery should be the preferred treatment for intact descending thoracic aortic aneurysms. However, this study recently published in J Am Coll Cardiol, seems to have steered the wheel. In this study, open surgery was associated to increased early mortality and lower late mortality. Despite this long-term benefit, mean
