The evolution of auto-expandable Portico valve
Augusto Pichard

The report by Drs. Fernández-Pereira and associates (1) is an excellent demonstration of what a team of dedicated interventionists can achieve using the Portico valve in the first 40 patients. The success rate, complications of the procedure and results at 15.8 +/- 9.5 months are similar or better than previously published for patients at high risk of surgery or inoperable, see Tables ...

Since then, the indications fo...

The prevalence of severe vascular calcification increases with age, atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease. (1) It is predictor of poor results because it complicates blood vessel dilatation, increases the use of stents, and the rate of restenosis.
