OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of adult congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries over 31 years of angiographic studies, describing their angiographic and clinical characteristics. The results have been compared with the main series published. METHODS The diagnostic angiographic reports done in the Principado de(More)
The registry contains information collected during 2003 from thirteen Spanish hospitals on the incidence, clinical presentation, initial course, diagnostic imaging, and treatment of anomalous coronary arteries originating in the contralateral coronary sinus. In a total of 23,300 coronary angiograms, 98 anomalous coronary arteries were detected (incidence(More)
OBJECTIVES The study is made to describe the efficacy and safety of balloon postdilatation (BPD) for the treatment of residual aortic regurgitation (RAoR) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). METHODS AND RESULTS A single-center observational study is made with 157 consecutive patients accepted to TAVI. The patients were divided into two(More)
The present article presents the case of a 70-year-old male, with a history of acute anterolateral myocardiac infarction (AMI) in 1986 and inferior AMI in 1992. Coronary arteriography was performed in 1995, which showed occlusion of the distal RCA and stenosis in 90% of the proximal LAD, with an ejection fraction (EF) of 29%. Balloon angioplasty was(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Spanish hospital registers of myocardial infarction (MI) are not uniform. The RIMAS project is trying to know the real situation of myocardial infarction in Asturias and to observe possible differences among hospitals and with other registers. PATIENTS AND METHOD It was a cohorts study using a hospital registry of patients with(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES In some patients, cardiac contractions cause the coronary artery segment adjacent to a stent to move in such a way that accurate stent positioning is difficult. A number of techniques have been described for immobilizing the stent at the target site by inducing periods of either asystole or tachycardia. This study shows how(More)
BACKGROUND The most frequent complications of transfemoral aortic valve implantation are vascular (15-25%) and are related to an increase in mortality. We sought to assess the rate of vascular complications, its treatment and outcomes using a surgical approach for transfemoral implantation of Edwards-SAPIEN (Edwards Lifescience, Irvine, CA, USA) aortic(More)
