ABSTRACT: Clopidogrel is a thienopyridine derivative antiplatelet compound. The antiplatelet effects of clopidogrel originate through noncompetitive antagonism of the platelet ADP receptor, P2Y12, resulting in inhibition of platelet activation. Clopi…
ABSTRACT: All three coronary arteries originating from a single coronary ostium is a rarity. Single coronary artery (CA) arising from the left aortic sinus is far more uncommon than one arising from the right sinus. Usually in such cases, the right c…
ABSTRACT: We report a case of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) where a 6 French (Fr) guiding catheter could not be advanced through extremely tortuous subclavian and brachiocephalic arteries with a right transradial approach. Downsizing from…
ABSTRACT: Myocardial bridging (MB) is a common anatomical varient in which a segment of coronary artery takes an intramural path. Occasionally, it can result in symptomatic ischemia. We present four cases in which MB was treated with drug-eluting ste…
ABSTRACT: An 18-year-old male developed post-traumatic priapism subsequent to a fall causing blunt perineal trauma. Color Doppler ultrasound showed a high-flow arterio-venous fistula with feeders from branches of the left internal iliac artery. Selec…
ABSTRACT: Percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) using Inoue technique through a right femoral vein approach (RFVA) is well established. Left femoral vein approach (LFVA) is traditionally contraindicated because of certain technical is…
ABSTRACT: Anterior ST-segment elevation is the hallmark electrocardiographic finding of acute anterior left ventricular infarction that is caused by occlusion in one of the branches of the left coronary artery. We report a case of marked ST-segment e…
ABSTRACT: Percutaneous atrial septal defect closure has been demonstrated to be a safe and effective procedure. Many different devices have been utilized during the last decade with a low complication rate. We report a patient who presented with card…
ABSTRACT: We report on a 68-year-old male patient (smoker, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetic for 25 years) who was admitted with acute pulmonary edema 5 months after undergoing  coronary artery bypass grafting (left internal mammary art…
ABSTRACT: Very late stent thrombosis is a rare but devastating complication. Several factors are known to contribute to its occurrence, and are related to the patient, procedure, lesion and premature discontinuation of antiplatelet therapy. This repo…
