The first case of a successful PCI with stenting to the right coronary artery in an achondroplastic male with acute inferior and right ventricular myocardial infarction is presented.
Emergency endovascular therapy with an aspiration catheter and ballooning were performed to the popliteal and renal artery, in addition to additional stenting of the supramesenteric artery because of an intramural hematoma.
Despite the presence of complex distal left main lesions, new drug-eluting stents appear promising in the treatment of ULMCA disease in terms of safety and efficacy at 2-year clinical follow-up.
Septal ablation using radiofrequency energy may be a promising alternative or adjunct to the treatment of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Intracardiac echocardiography and electroanatomical CARTO mapping enables exact lesion placement and pr…
Percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair and left atrial appendage closure to diminish the embolic risk in a 79-year-old patient were performed with the aid of transesophageal echocardiography.
Description of a simple technique to avoid entrainment of air during wire removal when exchanging a catheter over a wire in a variety of clinical scenarios. The method relies on withdrawing the exchanged wire under fluid and therefore entraining sali…
Recently investigated treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED) are reviewed along with an overview of the anatomy of normal erectile physiology and the pathophysiology of ED.
An inverted Edwards SAPIEN 23mm valve was implanted in a 14 year-old patient with Ebstein's anomaly and immediate drop of right atrial and trans-tricuspid pressures with mild regurgitation, and stable results on short-term follow-up.
Sudden occlusion of the only patent coronary artery is usually a devastating event. We describe a case of a successful percutaneous recanalization of a single coronary artery originating at the right sinus of Valsalva.
Permanent pacemaker requirement is a known complication after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The aim of the present study was to analyze the effects of Edwards Sapien prosthesis implantation on atrioventricular conduction.
