What is more important to have favorable long-term outc...
Alfredo E Rodríguez

Over the last 20 years in interventional cardiology, we have witnessed countless technological “advances” in and out of the cath lab including new invasive and non-invasive functional diagnostic procedures. Fractional flow reserve (FFR), optical coherence tomography (OCT), multi-slice computed coronary tomography (MSCT), MSCT with functional assessment of lesions, etc. have b...

Hypoalbuminemia: a biological expression of frailty
Carlos Fernández-Pereira

In the study conducted by Garmendia et al. the objective was to determine the prevalence of hypoalbuminemia and its clinical impact in patients with severe aortic stenosis treated with TAVI. This was a single-center, retrospective study where the baseline characteristics were analyzed based on the presence or absence of hypoalbuminemia (albumin levels < 3.5 g/dL) plus an overall survival s...

Cristian Maximiliano Garmendia y cols.

Over the last few decades, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been proposed as a therapeutic strategy that should be taken into consideration in patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis (AS) from a wide age range and with a different degree of surgical risk. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to stratify risk for the proper selection of TAVI eligible patients. In...

Ernesto M Torresani y cols.

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty is a therapeutic method that has been established for quite a few years especially for the management of patients with ischemic heart disease. However, the evolution of indications and resources available is remarkable. Not long ago, patients with left main coronary artery obstructions or multivessel disease were only considered eligible for surgery. Howe...

Carlos Giuliani y cols.

Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common valvular heart disease. Calcium deposit related degenerative etiology is the most prevalent of all. AS related symptom onset is associated with a lower life expectancy. One out of every 8 people over 75 years will develop moderate or severe aortic valvular stenosis in their lifetime. With the ageing of the population this tendency has been growing and n...

Alejandro Álvarez Iorio y cols.

Mechanical heart valves are the most lasting ones. However, their thrombogenic potential should be counteracted with the use of anticoagulant drugs. To prevent the risks of valve thromboembolism or hemorrhages associated with the use of anticoagulants, biological valves have become available. However, between 20% and 30% of the patients treated with biological mitral valves should be reoperat...

Pablo D Liva y cols.

Percutaneous eft atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion has become a therapeutic alternative of embolic prevention for patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) with a contraindication for long-term oral anticoagulation. Also, 2 landmark studies and 1 meta-analysis that combined both studies showed that the percutaneous LAA occlusion with the Watchman device (Boston Scientific Corporati...

Health legislation in Argentina
Alejandro Octavio Palacios

It happens to many of us in our daily routine clinical practice. We are trapped between the patient and his medical insurance having to discuss so many different parameters. The health professional supports a medical indication backed by the references and experience that should improve the patient’s quality or prognosis of life. On the other hand, medical insurance companies deal ...

Carta del Presidente

The proud feeling of belonging
Martín Cisneros

There is no doubt that, over the last few decades, interventional cardiology has become one of the most advanced medical specialties in modern medicine making minimally invasive endovascular techniques—unthinkable just a while ago—available for patients, reducing risks, and speeding up recovery times. Our country has also pioneered many other advances made. We just need to me...
