Percutaneous coronary intervention versus coronary-artery bypass grafting for severe coronary artery disease.
TLDR
CABG remains the standard of care for patients with three-vessel or left main coronary artery disease, since the use of CABG, as compared with PCI, resulted in lower rates of the combined end point of major adverse cardiac or cerebrovascular events at 1 year. Expand
The SYNTAX Score: an angiographic tool grading the complexity of coronary artery disease.
TLDR
This poster presents a probabilistic procedure called “Cardialysis BV, Rotterdam, The Netherlands”, which aims to establish a baseline for the use of this procedure in the treatment of chronic kidney disease. Expand
Guidelines on myocardial revascularization.
Guidelines and Expert Consensus Documents summarize and evaluate all available evidence with the aim of assisting physicians in selecting the best management strategy for an individual patientExpand
A prospective natural-history study of coronary atherosclerosis.
TLDR
In patients who presented with an acute coronary syndrome and underwent percutaneous coronary intervention, major adverse cardiovascular events occurring during follow-up were equally attributable to recurrence at the site of culprit lesions and to nonculprit lesions. Expand
A randomized comparison of a sirolimus-eluting stent with a standard stent for coronary revascularization.
TLDR
As compared with a standard coronary stent, a sirolimus-eluting stent shows considerable promise for the prevention of neointimal proliferation, restenosis, and associated clinical events. Expand
Coronary artery bypass graft surgery versus percutaneous coronary intervention in patients with three-vessel disease and left main coronary disease: 5-year follow-up of the randomised, clinical
TLDR
CABG should remain the standard of care for patients with complex lesions (high or intermediate SYNTAX scores) or left main coronary disease (low or intermediateSYNTAx scores), PCI is an acceptable alternative. Expand
Updated standardized endpoint definitions for transcatheter aortic valve implantation: the Valve Academic Research Consortium-2 consensus document.
TLDR
This VARC-2 document has provided further standardization of endpoint definitions for studies evaluating the use of TAVI, which will lead to improved comparability and interpretability of study results, supplying an increasingly growing body of evidence with respect to transcatheter aortic valve implantation and/or surgical aortIC valve replacement. Expand
Clinical End Points in Coronary Stent Trials: A Case for Standardized Definitions
TLDR
Criteria for assessment of death, myocardial infarction, repeat revascularization, and stent thrombosis were developed and provide consistency across studies that can facilitate the evaluation of safety and effectiveness of these devices. Expand
Updated standardized endpoint definitions for transcatheter aortic valve implantation: the Valve Academic Research Consortium-2 consensus document.
TLDR
This VARC-2 document has provided further standardization of endpoint definitions for studies evaluating the use of TAVI, which will lead to improved comparability and interpretability of the study results, supplying an increasingly growing body of evidence with respect to TAVi and/or surgical aortic valve replacement. Expand
From vulnerable plaque to vulnerable patient: a call for new definitions and risk assessment strategies: Part I.
TLDR
The term "vulnerable patient" may be more appropriate and is proposed now for the identification of subjects with high likelihood of developing cardiac events in the near future and a quantitative method for cumulative risk assessment of vulnerable patients needs to be developed. Expand
