Luis María García y cols.

Percutaneous transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has turned into the preferred option for patients who have a serious commitment of the aortic valve and a high or prohibitive surgical risk.

Leonardo Danduch y cols.

Since the publication in 2016 of studies such as the SMART-STRATEGY1 or the EBC-TWO2 which support the use of a single stent (provisional stenting) like an initial strategy in angioplasties on bifurcations, the technique of two stents like culotte or double-kissing-crush only were reserved for less than 10% of these procedures, in which the secondary vessel was of great caliber, with complex ...

A personal perspective of the development of percutaneo...
Julio C Palmaz

The development of percutaneous coronary interventions has been heady and fascinating. However, any attempt at summarizing its history is fraught with risk of oversimplification and omission. Having had the opportunity to interact with pioneers who personally inspired me, makes me reflect about a pattern in the process involving novel ideas followed by systematic development.

Luis María García y cols.

Marcelo A Agüero y cols.

As it happens with other valvulopathies, the prevalence of the tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is increasing while aging. In its significant aspects, it produces signs and symptoms that affect the quality of life (fatigue, dyspnea, oedema), and disfunction of other organs due to congestion or as a result of low antegrade output. It also influences negatively in survival having been reported mort...
