Longitudinal deformation has been described as a new complication affecting new-generation thin-strut coronary stents. Benchmark tests have suggested that the platinum-chromium (PtCr) Element coronary stent platform (Boston Scientific) might present…
Remote-controlled robotic-enhanced percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was developed to improve procedural outcomes, reduce operator radiation exposure, and improve ergonomics. Critics questioned whether protection of the operator might result i…
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) can be complicated by significant paravalvular leak (PVL). The aim of this study was to assess the utility of a proprietary software package, HeartNavigator (Philips), in selecting TAVR prosthesis to mini…
In-stent restenosis (ISR) after endovascular treatment of stenotic and occlusive disease of the infrainguinal arteries is still a clinical challenge. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the mid-term follow-up of a combination therapy using laser…
