A series of cine film and optical coherence tomography images demonstrate coronary stent pseudofracture after implantation in the left anterior descending coronary artery.
We report a case in which 3D TEE with off-line analysis of images to generate en face views of the mitral valve dehiscence allowed a simplified interrogation and definition of defect dimensions. 3D TEE was used for selection of the device size. The i…
Cardiac catheterization from radial artery access is observed to cause increased heart rate via oversensing in ipsilateral rate adaptive pacemaker. The mechanism of this phenomenon is discussed.

We present a technique with successful use of the GuideLiner catheter (Vascular Solutions) for thrombus aspiration after dedicated manual aspiration thrombectomy devices have failed. Our case series includes large thrombus burden in clinical scenario…
We present a case series of 2 patients with acute degenerative bioprosthetic aortic valve insufficiency leading to cardiogenic shock with multiple organ failure, who were treated successfully with TAVR.
The authors offer their opinions on TAVR as a salvage procedure in patients with acutely failing bioprosthetic valves. They stress the importance of noting the etiology of the prosthetic failure, nature of the prosthetic failure, size of the implante…
To the Editor,We read with great interest the article “Cardiac Tamponade Complicating Coronary Perforation During Angioplasty: Short-Term Outcomes and Long-Term Survival” by Stathopoulos et al.1 The article addressed an issue on which there is a dear…
A case of transradial intervention of severe common femoral artery stenosis with orbital atherectomy is presented; the technique, advantages, and limitations of this procedure are also discussed.
The author offers his thoughts on the United States Food and Drug Administration’s requirements for device approval.
