Síndrome de Hiperperfusión cerebral post-angioplastia carotídea: una complicación prevenible

Silent Embolism during TAVR: Just Images or Potential Cognitive Deterioration?

Finding new cerebral ischemic imaging after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is almost the rule, especially for self-expandable valves. These images might disappear over the months but, unfortunately, they are associated to small but significative cognitive deterioration.  Most patients undergoing TAVR develop silent cerebral ischemic lesions (SCILs) that show in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The

Post TAVR Acute Coronary Syndrome: Frequency and Potential Damage

After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are rare and mostly present as non-ST elevation events. In this context, the few ST elevation events have bad prognosis, with close to 30% mortality at 30 days.  This study included patients undergoing TAVR between 2012 and 2017 admitted for acute coronary syndrome during followup.

Coronary Access After TAVR: A Potential Problem Ahead

Coronary cannulation after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) was unsuccessful in almost 10% of patients. This problem occurred almost exclusively in those who received a self-expanding valve. This study, recently published in JACC Cardiovasc Interv., was sought to investigate the feasibility of coronary ostia access after TAVR and describe potential predictors of coronary access impairment.

ProGlide vs. Prostar XL to Close Post-TAVR Access

Minimalist transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a strategy that is here to stay. We have previously published papers comparing local vs. general anesthesia, use of transthoracic vs. transesophageal echocardiography, and early discharge in TAVR. In all these papers, the “minimalist approach” included percutaneous closure of vascular access. However, few papers compare closure devices in

Transcarotid Approach for Transfemoral in TAVR

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. At present, the transfemoral is the preferred access site in TAVR, for it has been shown to present fewer complications. However, whenever not feasible, we can resort to other approaches. These include the subclavian, the transapical, the transcaval, the transaortic, and the transcarotid. This last one has been studied few

NOTION and UK TAVI Report Good Long-Term Outcomes

Both studies followed beyond 5 years patients with severe aortic stenosis who had undergone transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Findings included low rates of significant valve degeneration and failure, in both cases. While data on the long-term degeneration of transcatheter-implanted valves are scarce, follow-up from the NOTION trial of low-risk patients and from the UK TAVI

La anticoagulación jugando un papel controvertido en el TAVI

Anticoagulation Plays a Controversial Role in TAVR

Men gender, kidney failure and atrial fibrillation are the factors that most affect 3-year mortality after transcatheter aortic valve replacement. On the other hand, surprisingly enough, anticoagulation (mostly indicated for atrial fibrillation) reduces mortality risk – especially the risk of valve deterioration – after TAVR. Should anticoagulation be included in post TAVR protocols? This question
