ABSTRACT: Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism are major causes of morbidity and mortality in trauma patients. Anticoagulation therapy is often contraindicated in these patient populations. The retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filter provi…
ABSTRACT: Atresia of the left coronary ostium is one of the rarest congenital coronary anomalies. We describe a 50-year-old male with atypical chest pain and positive exercise stress 201-thallium myocardial scintigraphy, in which coronary angiography…
ABSTRACT: Background. Massive pulmonary embolism (PE) complicated with shock has an extremely high mortality rate with medical treatment. Since access to emergency vascular surgery or endovascular specialists is not readily available in most centers,…
ABSTRACT: Longitudinal stent deformation is a recently described complication of percutaneous coronary intervention and is the result of modifications to the stent design that have reduced the number of connectors, reducing longitudinal stent strengt…
ABSTRACT: Ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (RSVA), a rare form of left-to-right shunt, is being increasingly corrected with transcatheter closure (TCC) with promising immediate and mid-term results. Complete heart block (CHB) following TCC of peri…
ABSTRACT: Despite over 6 decades of progress in the development of pharmacological therapy for hypertension, severe drug-resistant hypertension remains a major problem. Endovascular radiofrequency ablation of the proximal renal arteries has been repo…
Abstract: A 49-year-old male presented to our emergency department with sudden anterior chest pain. His electrocardiogram revealed ST-segment elevations in leads II, III and aVF. An inferior acute myocardial infarction was suspected. Emergent coronar…
Abstract: Giant vein graft aneurysms occur infrequently after coronary artery bypass graft surgery and are most often detected incidentally during coronary angiography for suspected angina or as a mediastinal mass on chest radiographs. Hereby, we des…
Abstract: Endovascular aneurysm repair is becoming the treatment of choice for elderly patients bearing abdominal aortic aneurysms with particular anatomical characteristics. Endovascular grafts are usually oversized to achieve sealing and minimize g…
Abstract: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is common and is associated with a high cardiovascular mortality. While dual antiplatelet therapy (DAT) does not appear superior to antiplatelet monotherapy in preventing myocardial infarction, stroke, and…
