A patient is described who required IABP support and later developed a grim complication of pneumatosis intestinalis despite smaller-size IABP use. This complication should be taken into consideration in females with small size and diseased aortas.
We describe the use of a novel AngioVac venous extracorporeal bypass system (AngioDynamics) to remove a part of large right atrial tumor and thrombus in a patient with recurrent pulmonary embolism from hepatocellular carcinoma infiltrating into the i…
We report a subacute bioresorbable scaffold thrombosis caused by stent collapse into a heavily calcified lesion.
We describe a case of severe aortic stenosis complicated with severe peripheral artery disease that was successfully treated with double-balloon aortic valvuloplasty using bilateral brachial access.
The first case of successful transcatheter closure of a large left pulmonary artery to left atrial fistula with Amplatzer duct occluder in a cyanotic neonate by transseptal approach is described.
A case series demonstrating that in selected anatomies it is possible, feasible, and safe to perform single 6 Fr transradial guiding catheter retrograde recanalization of left-sided CTO via ipsilateral epicardial or septal collateral channels.
As a novel device-based approach targeting the renal sympathetic nerves, renal denervation has been shown to be effective and safe in reducing blood pressure. The femoral artery is currently the most common access site for this procedure due to cathe…
A demonstration of the OPN NC balloon (Vascular Perspectives) dilating underexpanded stents after other NC balloons have failed. 
A study to determine the incidence and predictors of side-branch compromise in patients who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction.
A systematic review and meta-analysis of studies reporting outcomes after first- and second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in chronic total occlusions.
