TAVI and concomitant procedures: from PCI to LAA closure


Taramasso, Maurizio; Maisano, Francesco; Nietlispach, Fabian (2015). TAVI and concomitant procedures: from PCI to LAA closure. EuroIntervention, 11 Suppl:96-100.

Abstract

In high-risk patients with aortic stenosis and associated cardiac comorbidities (such as coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation or combined valve disease), transcatheter interventions offer a unique opportunity to mitigate these individuals' cardiovascular risk, either by staging the interventions, or by performing simultaneous procedures in a single session. The decision on which approach (staged vs. single session) to choose for an individual patient depends on clinical, anatomical and patient-related factors. While a staged approach may represent a preferable strategy in selected patients, concomitant treatment of combined cardiac diseases represents an appealing option in a majority of patients.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
