POKI: una nueva estrategia en bifurcaciones

Proximal Optimization Technique in Unprotected LMCA

Proximal Optimization Technique in Unprotected LMCA

Proximal optimization technique (POT) has been recommended as a standard strategy in bifurcation lesions because it facilitates proper stent implantation and apposition in the proximal main vessel, according to the European Bifurcation Club. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the unprotected left main coronary artery (LMCA) has specific characteristics, and the long-term impact of this strategy

La complejidad de la angioplastia puede definir el tiempo de doble antiagregación

Optimal Duration of DAPT with Oral Anticoagulation After PCI?: 1 Month vs. 3 Months

While the benefits of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor are recognized, its primary complication is the occurrence of bleeding events, which negatively impact patient morbidity and mortality. Additionally, about 10% of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are on oral anticoagulant therapy, which significantly increases the risk of bleeding when

IAM y múltiples vasos, ¿podemos realizar un solo procedimiento?

AMI and Multivessel Disease: Can We Perform a Single Procedure?

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is considered the treatment of choice in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, it is widely acknowledged that, in many cases, there are significant lesions in other coronary arteries. Previous randomized studies have shown that complete revascularization in a second procedure is more beneficial than intervention only in the culprit artery.

¿Es frecuente el uso de IVUS para guiar la ATC?

Is IVUS Guided PCI a Common Technique?

We all know the benefits of ultravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in the development of percutaneous coronary intervention, such as more accurate vessel measurement, improved stent expansion and apposition, and complication identification. This is why the use of IVUS is a class IIa recommendation in AHA and ESC guidelines.  The aim of this retrospective study was to
