Francesco Versaci, Sebastiano Sciarretta, Massimiliano Scappaticci, Riccardo Di Pietro, Simone Calcagno, Armando Del Prete, Carlo Gaspardone, Giuseppe Biondi Zoccai,

Renal denervation (RDN) is a therapeutic strategy for patients with uncontrolled arterial hypertension characterized by considerable fluctuations during its progression. After initial strong enthusiasm, the procedure came to an abrupt halt following the publication of the Symplicity HTN-3 study results. The results of recently published studies highlight the reduction in ... Read more >>

Armando Del Prete, Francesca Conway, Domenico Giovanni Della Rocca, Giuseppe Biondi-Zoccai, Francesco De Felice, Carmine Musto, Marco Picichè, Eugenio Martuscelli, Andrea Natale, Francesco Versaci,

Synopsis SARS-CoV-2 can affect the cardiovascular system yielding a wide range of complications, including acute myocardial injury. The myocardium can be damaged by direct viral invasion or indirect mechanisms, sustained by systemic inflammation, immune-mediated response and dysregulation of the renin-angiotensin system. Myocardial injury affects about one-quarter of patients with COVID-19, ... Read more >>

Francesco Versaci, Sebastiano Sciarretta, Massimiliano Scappaticci, Simone Calcagno, Riccardo di Pietro, Francesca Sbandi, Angela Dei Giudici, Armando Del Prete, Stefano de Angelis, Giuseppe Biondi-Zoccai,

Initial studies on renal denervation (RDN) for the treatment of non-controlled arterial hypertension (HTN) through radiofrequency ablation of renal arteries demonstrated that RDN is an effective therapeutic strategy to reduce arterial blood pressure (BP). Nonetheless, the first randomized study, SYMPLICITY-HTN-3, failed to demonstrate a clear benefit for RND over the ... Read more >>

Giuseppe Nasso, Claudio Costantini, Antonio Petralia, Armando Del Prete, Vincenzo Lopriore, Khalil Fattouch, Carlo Paterno, Giuseppe Speziale,

Miniaturized cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) systems, though more biocompatible, are limited by not being adaptable to all cardiac surgical operations. We evaluate a versatile CPB system [extracorporeal vacuum-assisted device optimized (EVADO)] based on the elimination of roller pumps, separation of extracavitary suctioned blood and state-of-the-art technology for oxygenator systems and digital ...
