TAVI (Transcatheter aortic valve implantation)

Find all the latest content on TAVI published on this website.

TAVI, now an established, valid treatment for patients presenting with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis, has proven to be superior to medical treatment for inoperable patients whilst being a valid alternative to surgery in select, high-risk patients. This topic covers the newest devices and emerging data in TAVI as well as information on tools, devices and techniques such as vascular access; the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy; imaging techniques such as echocardiography, understanding bleeding risks or patient selection.

Other stroke interventions

Find all the latest content on other stroke interventions published on this website.

Percutaneous treatment of conditions such as atrial septal defects (ASD) which create haemodynamic burden, or the closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) which has been linked to ischaemic stroke as well as migraine, can have immediate and long-term beneficial effects. Learn more about the use of imaging, adjunctive pharmacotherapy, stents, devices and techniques as well as understanding vascular access and bleeding complications in the treatment of these and other conditions here...

LAA (Left Atrial Appendage) closure

Find all the latest content on left atrial appendage (LAA) published on this website.

Today, with an aging population, atrial fibrillation is more common and carries with it an increased risk of embolic cerebrovascular accidents. Anticoagulation strategies alone are not sufficient, and as a large proportion of the thrombus involved in these cerebrovascular accidents are seen to arise in the left atrial appendage (LAA), its closure, either surgically or by percutaneous methods, could reduce risk. Learn more about imaging, tools, devices and techniques as well as adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access and bleeding here…

Carotid stenting

Find all the latest content on carotid stenting published on this website.

Preventing stroke due to narrowing of the carotid artery is a primary health concern and while surgery, such as carotid endarterectomy (CEA), has long been available, carotid artery stenting (CAS) offers a possible new and effective endovascular treatment. Keep up with the latest trials, imaging modalities, stents, devices and techniques, adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access and bleeding here…

Ischaemic stroke

Find all the latest content on ischaemic stroke published on this website.

Along with heart disease, stroke has been called one of the most common causes of mortality and disability worldwide. Constantly evolving tools, devices, imaging modalities and techniques, supported by a series of recent trials, points to endovascular interventions as a viable method for treating ischaemic stroke when performed in a timely fashion. Here you can keep up-to-date with this fast changing topic including articles on adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access and bleeding risks…

Interventions for Stroke

In this section you will find all the topics related to interventions for stroke like left atrial appendage (LAA) closure, ischaemic stroke, carotid artery stenting (CAS), other stroke interventions and percutaneous treatment of conditions such as atrial septal defects (ASD).

Other hypertension

From obstructive sleep apnoea, resistant hypertension or secondary hypertension, find all the latest content on hypertension published on this website.

Treating hypertension requires an in-depth understanding of its mechanisms as well as patient history and compliance. The information you need covering the diverse topics involved in this discipline can be found in this section…

Renal denervation

Find all the latest content on renal denervation published on this website.

Despite the existence of effective antihypertensive drugs, arterial hypertension remains a critical challenge for healthcare systems worldwide. Can catheter-based renal denervation play an effective part in reducing, previously untreatable high blood pressure? Follow the latest research in this novel field along with the critical issues of blood pressure monitoring, imaging modalities, tools, devices and techniques as well as vascular access, bleeding risk and adjunctive pharmacotherapy…

Renal artery angioplasty

Find all the latest content on renal artery angioplasty published on this website.

Faced with stenosis of the renal artery and the existence or threat of hypertension and the possibility of renal failure, what is the role of renal artery angioplasty strategies today? Learn about imaging tools, stents, devices and techniques as well as the latest information on adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access and bleeding risks…

Interventions for Hypertension

In this section you will find all the topics related to interventions for hypertension like renal artery angioplasty, renal denervation and other hypertension for example obstructive sleep apnoea, resistant hypertension or secondary hypertension.
