Percutaneous implantation of aortic valve at low or int...
Alfredo E Rodríguez

Very few things in internal medicine and/or interventional cardiology have been more interesting to me when doing clinical research than analyzing the cost-effectiveness ratio of revascularization techniques or strategies and/or therapy. Since the times of the randomized clinical trials between angioplastyvs coronary surgery to the rational use of stents until the option of using immunos...

Dhaval Kolte y cols.

Approximately 12.4% of patients >75 years of age have aortic stenosis (AS) and 3.4% have severe AS. The prevalence of AS and its impact on public health and health care resources is expected to increase with the aging population. Since the first human percutaneous balloon-expandable transcatheter aortic valve implantation by Dr. Alain Cribier on April 16, 2002 in Rouen, France, this disrup...

Miguel Amore y cols.

Chronic pelvic pain (CPP), which mainly affects women in reproductive age, shows a significant incidence rate in the general population, where pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) is the second leading cause of CPP. Several medical societies have drafted documents to unify concepts seeking international consensus for the diagnosis and management of PCS. Based on the existing evidence an...

Smoking as an independent predictor of radial spasm
Natalia Mercado y cols.

Radial access has been gaining traction over the last few years regarding percutaneous coronary interventions. To this date, it is one of the most commonly chosen access routes by interventional cardiologists worldwide when performing endovascular procedures. Evidence shows benefits for both patients and health centers with fewer vascular complications, more comfort and early mobilization, be...

Coronary pulmonary fistula: presentation of a rare case...
Sebastián Amicone y cols.

Coronary fistulas are rare anomalies that amount to 0.3% of congenital heart diseases. To this day, the incidence rate of coronary-pulmonary fistulas (CPF) has increased due to the widespread use of cardiac computed tomography and represents 15% to 30% of all coronary fistulas reported. In the last clinical practice guidelines published by the American College of Cardiology on congenital hear...

Subclavian-coronary steal syndrome. Case report and re...
Tomás Cúneo y cols.

Coronary artery disease is one of the most common entities across the world. At times, it can be associated with carotid artery and other territories disease. Although the management of coronary artery disease can be percutaneous [percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA)] or surgical [myocardial revascularization surgery (MRS)] the remaining vascular territories should be taken into consid...

Six-year angiographic follow-up of a chronic total coro...
Juan Mieres y cols.

Yet despite the introduction of the modern technology of drug-eluting stents (DES), over the last decade we have seen a reduction of revascularization procedures including the most common one in the United States, the percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Also, in landmark randomized clinical trials (RCT) that compared DES and myocardial revascularization surgery (MRS) with long-term...
