INTRODUCTION Surgical treatment is accepted as conventional treatment of patients with acute aortic syndrome associated to ischemic complications. Promising results of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has expanded its indication to a variety of thoracic aorta pathologies. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to evaluate the safety and(More)
To assess the incidence of in-hospital major adverse cardiac events (MACE), we analyzed 694 procedures in 613 consecutive patients during one year period. Patient population included 550 (79.2%) patients with unstable angina, 43 (6.2%) with stable angina and 101 (14.5%) with acute myocardial infarction. Elective percutaneous transluminal coronary(More)
Contemporary clinical and laboratory data have challenged our classical concepts of the pathogenesis of the acute coronary syndromes [ACS]. Indeed, several independent lines of clinical evidence have supported that the critical stenoses cause only a fraction of the ACS. Acute myocardial infarction is believed to be caused by rupture of a vulnerable(More)
The main objective of this short review is to bring into focus the most relevant of the recent advances in prothrombin time standardization and analyze the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) for monitoring patients with thrombotic disorders under treatment with oral anticoagulant drugs. The prothrombin time (PT) is indicative of the(More)
UNLABELLED Between October 1991 and August 1996 two-hundred coronary stents were implanted (s) in 166 patients (pts) (1.27 s/pt). One hundred thirty-five lesions "de novo" were approached with stent, 44 because of a sub-optimal result post-angioplasty, 15 for restenosis and 17 for dissection. In thirty-six patients the indication of stenting was stable(More)
UNLABELLED From December 1995 to March 1997 fifty patients with acute myocardial infarction, had 57 stents implanted. Mean time since the beginning of symptoms to the procedure was 3.7 +/- 2.9 hours. Twenty-four stents were implanted "de novo", 17 for "sub-optimal" results, 5 for threatened closure and eleven for complex dissection. The arteries treated(More)
Although coronary angioplasty is currently applied to a wide variety of obstructive coronary artery lesions, its indications have been reduced to certain selected cases. We present three cases of complex coronary angioplasty: in the elderly patient, after bypass surgery, and multiple lesions in one vessel comment about different causes that justify its use.(More)
A patient with resistant hypertension successfully treated with sympathetic renal denervation (SRD) is reported. This novel therapy is based on the partial ablation of the renal nerves by applying radiofrequency to the luminal surface of the renal arteries using vascular catheterization techniques. This first case performed in Mexico has two particular(More)
BACKGROUND For patients with complicated acute thoracic aortic syndromes, endovascular treatment, when feasible, is preferred over open surgery. However, there are limited data on the long-term benefits of endovascular treatment in complicated acute aortic syndromes affecting the descending thoracic aorta. HYPOTHESIS The endovascular treatment is expected(More)
