THE TRANSCATHETER AORTIC VALVE IMPLANTATION
The aortic valve stenosis is a thickening and stiffening process that involves the aortic valve.
This phenomenon causes fainting, heart failure, shortness of breath and chest pain.
The only effective and long-term treatment is the replacement of the affected heart valve.
The new valve is loaded on a catheter and inserted in the femoral artery until it is pushed up to the valve and positioned correctly.

MITRACLIP
Mitral failure consists in the return of blood from the left ventricle to the left atrium during ventricular systole, due to an anomaly in the closure of the mitral valve. This can lead to heart failure. The percutaneous implant of MitraClip on the mitral valve is indicated to treat mitral regurgitation in patients at high cardiac risk. The operation consists in the insertion of a catheter into the right femoral vein which reaches the heart and releases the clip.

Antonio Colombo

Years of experience: 25

Head of Unit - Interventional Cardiology and Hemodynamics - IRCCS San Raffaele Hospital

He was the first to use coronary stents to treat complex coronary disease (bifurcation lesions). He performed more than 40,000 therapeutic interventions.
He is part of the editorial board of the main international journals of Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology. Advisor at Columbia University in New York and Stamford Hospital (USA).
Professor Antonio Colombo’s career starts with his move to the United States, where he completes a 360-degree training in General Internal Medicine and Cardiology.
In 1987, Professor Colombo returns to Italy, and starts his Interventional Cardiology Activity.

Professor Colombo’s main contributions regard the field of coronary stenting; his observations have been essential for enabling the utilization of coronary stenting with the sole antiplatelet therapy, in the absence of oral anticoagulants and of risk of stent thrombosis. These results and recommendations were presented in a seminal work, written for the scientific journal “Circulation”, in 1995. Since then, Professor Colombo’s observations have continued widening and perfecting the field of coronary stenting.
Professor Colombo was the first to use coronary stents in the treatment of complex coronary heart disease, through the design of short and long stents, and the first to use coronary stents for the treatment of bifurcation lesions. In this field, he has performed more than 40.000 therapeutic interventions on coronaries and hundreds of structural and peripheral surgery procedures.
This procedure has led to hundreds of publications, book chapters, and a considerable number of lessons within local and international meetings.
Professor Colombo is a member of the editorial advisory board of the main international journals of Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology; he is a consultant to the Columbia University of New York and to the Satmford Hospital (US), he is extraordinary Professor at Università Vita-Salute of the IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele. Member of the Superior Council of Health since 2005, Professor Colombo is the author of more than 1.000 original articles.
These results have enabled him to bear the title of best clinical researcher of the year in 1994, conferred by the Thorax-Center, Erasmus University of Rotterdam (NL), and the Career award conferred by the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics in Washington (US) in 1998.
