Florencia Noutary y cols.

Advanced heart failure is an interesting topic of discussion today because its incidence rate just does not stop growing, in part, due to the aging of the population, the higher survival regarding the patients’ comorbidities, and the advances made over the last few years in new therapies. Also, it has become a common reason for consultation in the coronary units of our country and abroa...

Suilbert Rodríguez Blanco y cols.

Major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) associated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) minimize procedural and clinical success alike. Percutaneous coronary intervention triggers myocardial inflammation whose size and magnitude depends on the duration of the ischemia produced and is divided into 3 phases: 1) phase of alarm (release of protein molecules), 2) phase of leukocyte mig...

Sebastián Peralta y cols.

Heavily calcified coronary lesions complicate the advancement of balloons and a proper stent expansion and apposition. Different devices have come up today for the management of this type of lesions. High-pressure noncompliant balloons are initially used to dilate areas with fewer calcification with the possibility of generating dissections but without ever changing the plaque calcification. ...
