BACKGROUND An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is the therapy of choice for primary prevention in patients with ischemia who are at risk for sudden cardiac death (SCD). One third of patients with significant coronary disease have chronic total coronary occlusion (CTO), which is associated with long-term mortality in patients with previous(More)
Specific techniques have been described for performing a left internal mammary artery (LIMA) angiography through the right radial approach. The unsuccessful LIMA angiography in anatomic situations, such as aorta dilatation or a far distal anatomical origin of the LIMA, among others, is a main problem not yet solved even with these techniques. In this(More)

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The optimum treatment for patients with ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infraction (AMI) is primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), provided that the door-to-balloon time is less than 90 min. The aims of this study were to determine actual treatment times in our patients, to investigate the effect of different(More)
Introduction and objectives: To study the prevalence of poorly controlled vitamin K antagonist anticoagulation in Spain in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, and to identify associated factors. Methods: We studied 1056 consecutive patients seen at 120 cardiology clinics in Spain between November 2013 and March 2014. We analyzed the international(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Up to 25% of patients who undergo a percutaneous coronary intervention show some limitation in the use of drug-eluting stents. The aim of this study was to evaluate if titanium-nitride-oxide-coated stents could be a good alternative to everolimus-eluting stents in diabetic patients. METHODS A total of 173 diabetic patients with(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The transradial approach is associated with a reduction in vascular access-related complications after primary percutaneous coronary interventions. The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility of the routine use of transradial access in primary angioplasty and to evaluate how it affects subgroups with less favorable(More)
