The origins of Interventional Cardiology in coronary ar...
Rubén Piraino

Most healthcare workers think of interventional cardiology as a well-established medical specialty. However, it would be good to reflect on its true origin because for those who were already part of it even before our specialty was born, the present time is just another step in the timeline of interventional cardiology. Today, interventional cardiology has reached its peak after 40 years...

CRISPR-Cas9 as protection therapy against cardiovascula...
David Vetcher

In February, 2017 we submitted the article Impact and opportunity of CRISPR-Cas9 in Cardiology to the Argentine Journal of Interventional Cardioangiology (RACI)—the official organ of the Argentine College of Interventional Cardiologists (CACI)— that was accepted in May 16 2017, and published in Issue #2 (April-June) of 2017. Almost 5 years ago, neither we nor the editor-in-chief, ...

The emergence of coronary intravascular lithotripsy
Sukhdeep Bhogal y cols.

The management of coronary artery calcium has been challenging since the inception of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). It is one of the strongest markers for the presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and has been extensively studied since the 1990s. It is encountered in about one-third of cases and is often underdiagnosed with routine coronary angiography.3 Further, moderate to s...

Macarena Matus de la Parra y cols.

Swan-Ganz (SG) catheter has facilitated the hemodynamic management of patients hospitalized in intensive care units, as well as the intra- and postoperative management of severe patients treated with high-complexity surgeries. Although its routine used has decreased, it is occasionally used for hemodynamic monitoring purposes in intensive therapies, assessment of medically unexplained dyspnea...

Intracoronary lithotripsy for stent underexpansion reso...
Juan Mieres y cols.

Complex angioplasties associated with heavily calcified plaques have always been challenging regarding percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) in the routine clinical practice. There are 2 different devices available that we use daily in our cath labs to perform these PCIs: enhanced stent visualization (ESV), which is a technology provided by an angiographic system built by General Electric...

Critical limb ischemia: case presentation of retrograde...
Deysi Vanessa Cuadros Morales

Lower limb critical ischemia is a serious manifestation of lower limb peripheral arterial disease. It poses a high risk of amputation or complications associated with tissue loss, gangrene, sepsis or multiple organ failure. This ischemia is characterized by the coexistence of pain at rest or foot or toes ulceration or gangrene. It often presents as a chronic total coronary occlusion (CTO) in ...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement for failing homo...
José María Milanesi y cols.

Surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) with homograft is prone to late degeneration as it is associated with severe calcification and vascular dysfunction. Surgical reintervention in patients treated with SAVR with homograft can be associated with a significantly high risk. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become a known therapy for patients with severe aortic stenosis (Ao...

Caso Clínico

Venous thoracic outlet syndrome, angiographic diagnosis
Jorge Cortez y cols.

The axillary vein is a continuation of the brachial vein that ascends towards the thorax. Then, it turns into the subclavian vein as it passes above the first rib underneath the clavicle. Then, it meets with the internal jugular vein to become the brachiocephalic vein. The term axillosubclavian is used to refer to the axillary and subclavian segments of the vein. To reach the internal jugular...
