Lower Mortality with Rechanneling vs. Medical Therapy

Lower Mortality with Rechanneling vs. Medical Therapy

We had to wait for it, but we have finally seen a benefit in hard endpoints—such as mortality—derived from rechanneling. Patients with chronic total occlusion (CTO) in whom rechanneling was used as initial strategy showed higher survival rated compared with those receiving medical therapy. As initial treatment strategy, rechanneling a CTO did not show any

SOLACI PERIPHERAL | Common, superficial and deep femoral artery recanalization

SOLACI PERIPHERAL | 6th Clinical Case: Common, Superficial and Deep Femoral Artery Recanalization

Here is a new SOLACI PERIPHERAL Case! In this opportunity, Dr. Ana Paula Mollón (Arg.) presents “Common, Superficial and Deep Femoral Artery Recanalization”. This is the 6th clinical case presented by SOLACI Peripheral. The purpose of this space is to encourage and further the exchange of experiences and opinions, to keep advancing our knowledge in

Should Total Occlusion Influence on Revascularization Strategy?

Success or failure of total occlusion (TO) revascularization does not affect mortality at 10 years, and this does not depend on revascularization strategy (PCI vs surgery) or location.  The long-term clinical benefit of recanalization and PCI or TO artery bypass graft remains nuclear.  This is a sub-study of the SYNTAXES (Synergy Between PCI With Taxus

Suboptimal Recanalization Results Worse than Procedural Failure

This large cohort of patients undergoing PCI for chronic total occlusion has shown suboptimal recanalization is associated with cardiac death and myocardial infarction at long term compared against procedural failure.  The link between acute outcomes and long-term events in recanalizations has been overlooked. Mainly when it comes to suboptimal results, is doing something more trouble

Subintimal vs. Intraplaque Coronary Rechanneling. Do Results Vary?

Coronary rechanneling is difficult by nature, and there are several techniques for it aimed at improving technical success. Some of these strategies entail the subintimal crossing of the occluded segment, while others entail intraplaque crossing, without leaving the true lumen. However, there is scarce or no information on the results of both strategies. Researchers analyzed
