Abstract: We present an interesting case on the management of a traumatic coronary artery fistula in a 39-year-old man who was stabbed by his wife. During emergency sternotomy, left lung and right ventricle injuries were repaired. On the second posto…
Abstract: This case illustrates a novel and innovative method of retrieving a kinked guiding catheter in transradial intervention without the need for vascular snare.J INVASIVE CARDIOL 2012;24(9):E205-E206
ABSTRACT: Percutaneous pulmonary valve technology has had a great impact on patients with congenital and acquired heart disease. In some patients, implantation of a percutaneous pulmonary valve may not be possible due to the morphology of the existin…
ABSTRACT: Deployment of a polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent is a useful option to seal coronary perforation. However, the high profile and low flexibility compromise its deliverability. To facilitate stent delivery, deep-vessel intubation with a…
ABSTRACT: Total occlusion of the left main coronary artery predominantly presents with recurrent angina or myocardial infarction. Long-term survival and myocardial function depends on the well-developed right to left collaterals. We report a case of…
ABSTRACT: A 68-year-old African American female with a prior medical history of hypertension and dyslipidemia presented with sudden onset pressure-like substernal chest pain. Initial ECG showed no ST or T wave abnormalities, and troponin elevation of…
