An incidentally noted aneurysm in the left renal artery in a 60-year-old woman was treated with a balloon-expandable covered stent; such stents appear to offer potential in the treatment of renal artery aneurysms, even in cases where complex anatomic…
Using the novel JENALI scoring system allowed for direct comparison between intravascular ultrasound and angiography. In theory, the comparison can be extended to other imaging modalities. Risk stratification, treatment, and patient outcomes may be f…
As a new coronary bifurcation provisional stenting method, the “balloon-stent kissing” technique is associated with a high procedural success rate, improved SB patency, and a low rate of immediate cardiac events.
Anticoagulation with REG1 allows for very early arterial sheath removal following cardiac catheterization without increasing the time to hemostasis or vascular access-site bleeding complications. Further studies are needed to determine whether antico…
Long-term efficacy and dynamics of systolic and diastolic luminal changes within the bridged segments of coronary arteries after intracoronary stenting with drug-eluting stent in patients with symptomatic myocardial bridging (SMB) in the absence of c…
Use of the CrossBoss/Stingray devices for CTO PCI is associated with equally high success and equally low complication rates as other techniques, both immediately post procedure and during long-term follow-up, in spite of its use in higher complexity…
The present study is a retrospective re-read and centralized analysis of the electrocardiographic response to intravenous and non-cardiac intraarterial injections of iosimenol, a new, iodine-based, non-ionic, iso-osmolar x-ray contrast media, versus…
We investigate whether drug-eluting stent compared with bare-metal stent implantation improves long-term outcomes after successful recanalization of single chronic total occlusion in patients with stable angina.
