Comparison of Side-Branch Dilation Techniques After Resorbable Magnesium Scaffold Implantation: A Bench Study
We sought to evaluate different side-branch dilation strategies after provisional T-stenting strategy with resorbable magnesium scaffolds using silicon bifurcation phantoms.
Long-Term Outcome After Percutaneous Closure of Patent Foramen Ovale for Cryptogenic Ischemic Events
The aim of this long-term follow-up analysis was to validate the impact of patent foramen ovale closure on recurrent ischemic events.
Complicated Hematoma After Transradial Catheterization
This case, which almost ended in a compartment syndrome, is an extremely uncommon complication of transradial catheterization, with a described incidence around 0.125%.
Pseudoaneurysm Formation After Cardiac Catheterization Using the Distal Transradial Approach
This is the first case report of pseudoaneurysm formation after cardiac catheterization through the distal radial artery, which was easily treated by external compression.
Vascular Perforation Occurring During Transradial Cardiac Catheterization is More Common Than Thought and Could Be Fatal
Letter to the editor regarding hydrophilic-wire induced vascular perforation causing mediastinal hematoma during transradial coronary intervention.
A Case of Very Late Stent Thrombosis 11 Years After Drug-Eluting Stent Implantation
Eleven years after DES implantation, a patient presented with AMI despite continued dual-antiplatelet therapy. Coronary angiography revealed total occlusion of the proximal LAD.
Coronary Artery Air Embolism
Coronary artery air embolism can be fatal if not proficiently managed. Vasospasm is said to be protective in that it breaks the larger air bubbles, as occurred in the present case.
Percutaneous Closure of Mitral Paravalvular Leaks Generating Refractory Heart Failure in the Immediate Postoperative Period
We present two patients with refractory heart failure due to mitral paravalvular leak (PVL) in whom percutaneous PVL closure was performed in the immediate postoperative period.
Snare Technique for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation in a Difficult Anatomy With Calcified Aortic Valve
Crossing the aortic annulus with a prosthetic valve was impossible due to severe calcification. A snare-catheter technique was used to centralize the entire system with the aortic orifice.
Drug-Coated vs Uncoated Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty in Infrapopliteal Arteries: Six-Month Results of the Lutonix BTK Trial
We hypothesized that a drug-coated balloon could improve treatment efficacy while maintaining safety when compared with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty for the treatment of atherosclerotic infrapopliteal arterial lesions.
