Balloon angioplasty/stenting has emerged as a highly effective revascularization procedure for renal artery stenosis (RAS).1 The major complications of balloon angioplasty of the renal artery are dissection, perforation and thrombosis. 2 Use of ballo…
Entrapment of a Drug-Eluting Stent in Left Anterior Descending Artery and Left Main Artery Leading to a Life-Threatening Complication ABSTRACT:Sudden stent loss after stent entrapment in a tight coronary lesion is an unexpected and devastating compl…
ABSTRACT: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation has been shown to be an effective and reproducible therapy for severe aortic valve stenosis. Device performance and short-term outcomes of well-deployed prostheses have been extensively investigated a…
ABSTRACT: Ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SOVA) is a rare albeit well-described entity and coexisting defects like ventricular septal defect, aortic regurgitation and, infrequently, atrial septal defect (ASD) have been reported. Until recently,…
Dual Guide Catheter Technique for Treating Native Coronary Artery Lesions Through Tortuous Internal Mammary Grafts: Separating Equipment Delivery from Target Lesion Visualization ABSTRACT:Attempts to wire and stent a native coronary artery lesion t…
Use of the Kissing Microcatheter Technique to Exchange a Retrograde Wire for an Antegrade Wire in the Retrograde Approach to Intervention in Chronic Total Occlusion ABSTRACT: The retrograde approach to chronic total occlusions (CTOs) is a great adva…
ABSTRACT: Ito et al reported low adverse events in true bifurcation lesions treated with rotational atherectomy in a recent issue of the Journal of Invasive Cardiology. However, their definition of true bifurcation lesions is not correct. They define…
A 23-year-old male presented to the hospital with non-radiating pain and palpitations. An echocardiogram showed a dilated left coronary artery and coronary sinus. Computed tomographic (CT) angiography showed markedly dilated left main and left circum…
ABSTRACT: Background. Patients who are entirely dependent on ventricular pacing are typically at the mercy of a single ventricular lead and pacemaker output in order to provide physiologic support. This study presents a number of high-risk cases (two…
ABSTRACT: Despite recent technical advances, the treatment of bifurcation lesions with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains a challenge. In daily practice, several bifurcation stenting techniques are now being used. However, even in the D…
