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

TAVI: Balón expandible o autoexpandible ¿Cuál es la respuesta?

TAVR: Balloon-Expandable or Self-Expanding Valves, Which Is the Answer?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has shown benefit and is currently moving towards low-risk patients, as well as bicuspid aortic valves and (to a lower extent) aortic regurgitation. However, we must ponder on which valve should be used on each patient: balloon-expandable (BE) or self-expanding (SE) valve? They represent different technologies

DES de 2.0 mm para vasos muy pequeños: ¿Es viable?

DES and DCB with Similar Results in Femoropopliteal Artery Disease

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Nowadays, peripheral interventions are on the rise and the technological development of stents and balloons would help achieve better outcomes. Both drug-eluting stents (DES) and drug-coated balloons (DCB) have proved to be beneficial for femoropopliteal interventions, but the actual role of each of these technologies remains unclear. This prospective, randomized 1:1

La ATP de la femoral común comienza a ser una opción válida

Common Femoral PCI Becomes a Valid Alternative

Gentileza del Dr. Carlos Fava. The common femoral artery has always been treated with surgery. Thanks to the development of new generation stents and the advancement of percutaneous intervention, common femoral lesions are currently being treated with PCI. However, data on the safety of PCI vs. surgery, remain unavailable.  The TECCO is multicenter study, randomized

SOLACI CACI 2017 | BVS: from clinical evidence to daily practice

Leaders Free ACS: Good Results for the Polymer-Free Stent at 2 Years in ACS

 Courtesy of the SBHCI. Guidelines recommend dual antiplatelet therapy for a year in patients admitted with coronary acute syndrome. However, patients at high risk for bleeding who receive coronary angioplasty have been historically excluded from studies. The new polymer-free stent BioFreedom allows for the reduction of dual antiplatelet therapy time, due to rapid drug elution
