Venous thromboembolism represents one of the main causes of cardiovascular death. Pulmonary embolism (PE) can vary from asymptomatic to manifesting with shock and sudden death, with a wide clinical spectrum. Patient followup is crucial, seeing as survival PE patients usually experience residual symptoms at long term, such as dyspnea or functional capacity deterioration.  For decades,

Rehospitalization After Treatment of Left Main Coronary Artery Disease and Its Prognosis: Sub-Analysis of the EXCEL Study

Individual randomized studies have shown variable results regarding the mortality risk following treatment of left main coronary artery disease (LMCAD), either through percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). However, upon assessment of the latest meta-analyses (with matched data), similar risks of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality have been reported for both groups.

Is Rehospitalization a Relevant Factor after Aortic Valve Replacement?

Patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis treated with aortic valve replacement might still present cardiac failure, even after successful procedures.   According to some reports, the incidence of cardiac failure after TAVR varies between 9% and 24%. The prognostic relevance of rehospitalization in these patients has not been studied yet; in fact, it remains unclear whether
