Discussion of the merits of a comprehensive HCM Treatment Center – the importance of initiating the next era in the alcohol septal ablation saga.
An isolated PMI is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. And because physicians often fail to recognize this diagnosis, there may be delays in the timely revascularization of these patients. The present study sought to identify the cli…
Study compares the impacts of sIRA infusion with conventional intracoronary (IC) administration of GPI tirofiban on myocardial reperfusion and clinical prognosis in STEMI patients.
Second-generation DES have alleviated the safety concerns of late stent thrombosis by addressing issues of polymer biocompatibility, stent design and optimizing drug loads and release kinetics. This study was designed to evaluate the pharmacokinetic…
A retrospective analysis aims to determined whether high bleeding risk acute coronary syndrome patients taking DAPT were appropriately provided with GI prophylaxis and investigated the association between age and clinical presentation on the likeliho…
Under routine clinical practice, the implantation of paclitaxel-eluting stents coated with P-5 is associated with favorable clinical outcomes in both the short and long term (2 years) in patients with coronary artery disease.
The reoperations of postoperative residual ventricular septal defects (VSDs) are associated with higher risks. This study assesses the efficacy and safety of transcatheter closure of postoperative residual VSDs using perimembranous VSD occluders.
The first report demonstrating the potential of the 4-in-5 technique during 5-Fr PCI. Two cases of 5-Fr transradial coronary intervention in which stent delivery failed with conventional techniques. In these 2 cases, this 4-Fr double-coaxial techniqu…
Using a valve-in-valve technique, with the deployment of a second Edward Sapien XT valve inside the first valve, the annular root rupture was successfully sealed leading to hemodynamic recovery in this 83-year-old woman with multiple co-morbidities a…
