Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm during the Pandemic: Should They Be Operated or Deferred?

Some European societies have recommended deferring the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) ≥5.5 cm during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, these documents have also suggested optimal deferral times, and everything must be adjusted according to the transmission risk/risk of rupture balance. Annual risk of rupture can be estimated based on a prospective cohort published by

Medical vs. Endovascular Treatment in Uncomplicated Type B Aortic Dissection

Under much debate, the treatment of uncomplicated type B aortic dissection is still uncertain. Several studies with methodological limitations have shown that endovascular treatment plus optimal medical treatment might be beneficial, compared with medical treatment alone. This meta-analysis sought to define more clearly the treatment strategy in patients with acute and subacute uncomplicated type B

¿Beneficio adicional del bypass radial en la cirugía de revascularización miocárdica?

Infrainguinal Bypass Following Failed Endovascular Intervention Has a Different Outcome

We often inform our patients we should first approach the superficial femoral with an endovascular intervention, and that should it fail or develop restenosis, we could always resort to a bypass. We were not lying when we’d assume a bypass following endovascular intervention would have the same outcome as a primary bypass. Simply put, no

Bioresorbable scaffolds with drug-eluting stents: do they entail a higher thrombosis risk?

Courtesy of Dr. Leiva. Bioresorbable scaffolds with drug-eluting stents (bioresorbable vascular scaffolds, BVS) have been added to the list of endovascular treatment options for coronary disease. The ABSORB III trial showed the non-inferiority of this stent type to everolimus-eluting metallic stents as regards target-lesion revascularization (TLR) at one year. However, reports have suggested a higher
