This case underlines the importance of having a high clinical suspicion for Takayasu arteritis in the young female population with ischemic symptoms in order to allow early diagnosis in hopes of preventing further complications.
The authors describe two cases of iatrogenic VSD following SAVR (both mechanical and bioprosthetic aortic valve), which were successfully closed with two different percutaneous techniques (retro-aortic and transseptal approach).
The authors report a case of coronary artery stenosis in a markedly tortuous right coronary artery for which a drug-eluting stent was delivered retrogradely via the atrial circumflex branch.
Although medical management, ie, vasodilators are the treatment of choice, cases refractory to medical therapy have been treated with coronary stenting and even coronary artery bypass graft surgery with acceptable outcomes.
The authors report a case involving a post-CABG patient presenting with an acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction due to great clot burden in his bypass graft and successful restoration of Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) grade…
The authors present a case report of a 40-year-old male who underwent elective cardiac catheterization secondary to complaints of intermittent chest pain and inducible ischemia in the anterior wall.
The authors describe a rare case of postcardiac injury syndrome manifesting as acute pericarditis with localized pericardial effusion (mimicking acute myocardial infarction) following epicardial coronary artery perforation during a PCI procedure. 
Elective closure of coronary artery fistula by surgery or percutaneous transcatheter technique is contriversial in the absence of symptoms. We report a case of successful percutaneous transcatheter device closure of an aneurysmally dilated coronary f…
The effect of multivessel disease (MVD) with or without a concomitant chronic total occlusion (CTO) has never been investigated in patients treated with rescue percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). This study evaluates whether there is an increas…
Percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair using the MitraClip device has evolved as a new tool for the treatment of severe mitral valve regurgitation. This technique has been evaluated both in surgical low and high risk patients. The aim of this…
