INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Little attention has been given to the effect of vascular access site on mortality, while an increasing body of evidence is showing that radial access has much more benefit than femoral access for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction patients. We aimed to assess the influence of vascular access site on mortality at 30 days(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate immediate transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) results and medium-term follow-up in very elderly patients with severe and symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS). METHODS This multicenter, observational and prospective study was carried out in three hospitals. We included consecutive very elderly (> 85 years) patients with severe(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES There is little information on the use of transcatheter aortic valve implantation in patients with severe aortic stenosis and porcelain aorta. The primary aim of this study was to analyze death from any cause after CoreValve(®) implantation in patients with severe aortic stenosis, with and without porcelain aorta. METHODS In(More)
The platelet-specific collagen receptor glycoprotein VI (GPVI) is critical for the formation of arterial thrombosis in vivo. We analyzed GPVI-activated platelets from ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients and matched stable coronary artery disease (SCAD) controls in order to provide novel clues on the degree of involvement of GPVI signaling in(More)
Seguridad y eficacia del implante valvular aórtico transcatéter en pacientes nonagenarios To the Editor, Degenerative aortic stenosis (AS) is the leading cause of valvular heart disease in our setting. Prevalence is increasing due to longer life expectancy and gradual population aging. 1 Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a safe and effective(More)
