Two-Stent Strategy is Safer in True Bifurcation Lesions

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava.  DES have improved PCI outcomes, but one of its biggest challenges continues to be bifurcations (especially when we have to use two stents, since it’s been associated to higher restenosis and stent thrombosis rates).  Left main coronary artery true bifurcation lesions are the ones that generate the greatest challenge and

Ideal Area for Unprotected Left Main PCI

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava.  Unprotected left main PCI (PCI-UPLMS) is an acceptable and comparable strategy vs CABG, although the use of IVUS is advisable, since it has shown better evolution and mortality. However, the adequate stent expansion remains unclear.  Researchers carried out a sub-analyzis of the NOBLE trial. Of the total 603 patients receiving

Is the Use of iFR for the Deferral of Left Main Coronary Artery Lesions Safe?

Deferral of left main coronary artery lesions using instantaneous wave-free ratio (iFR) seems to be safe. At the least, patients with deferred lesions had similar long-term prognosis to that of patients who underwent revascularization based on that same indicator. Left main coronary artery lesions were universally excluded from studies including medical treatment among the therapeutic

Webinar SOLACI | Left Main Coronary Artery PCI 360°: Clinical Case, Technique and Evidence

Check out our Webinar on “Left Main Coronary Artery PCI 360°: Clinical Case, Technique and Evidence” on our Youtube account. The event was promoted by the areas of ProEducar, SOLACI Research and SOLACI Sessions, and included the participation of prominent Latin American interventionists. In addition, a complex clinical case was presented on Left Main PCI

Escándalo con los resultados del EXCEL que hicieron “caer” las últimas guías

More Data from the EXCEL and More Controversy

A thorough statistical analysis of the EXCEL has quite definitely shown that the likelihood of death, MI or stoke, including total mortality, is higher with PCI compared against CABG. The Bayesian analysis estimated a 3.3% difference in mortality, superior in the PCI arm, with 99% probability that EXCEL total mortality was indeed increased with PCI

Virtual ACC 2020 | PRECOMBAT: 10 Years for Surgery vs. Angioplasty in Left Main Coronary Artery Disease

After 10 years of follow-up, there were no significant differences in the rates of major adverse cardiovascular or cerebrovascular events among patients with left main coronary artery disease randomized to angioplasty or surgery. Since this was the first study to randomize patients with left main coronary artery disease to angioplasty or surgery, it enrolled very few

Soon after the EXCEL “Scandal” the NOBLE 5-year Outcomes Come Out: Mere Coincidence?

There is no such thing as coincidence, at least not for the evidence-based medical science. This is what the NOBLE 5-year outcomes, soon to be published in the Lancet, seem to say, in line with the BBC exposé of the EXCEL study. The NOBLE study randomized patients with left main disease to compare PCI vs
