Radiation exposure is a limiting factor for PCI of chronic CTO lesions. This study was designed to analyze changes in patient radiation dose for CTO-PCI and parameters associated with radiation dose.
We aimed to investigate the safety of same-day discharge (SDD) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS), and to investigate the reduction in duration of hospitalization achievable b…
During transradial coronary procedures, arterial anomalies of the upper limb can lead to transradial navigation difficulties. We aimed to evaluate the incidence and impact of these anomalies on transradial procedures.
We sought to evaluate the impact of pulmonary embolism (PE) response teams (PERTs) on all consecutive patients with PE.
Polymer-free (PF) drug-eluting stent (DES) devices have a proven benefit over bare-metal stent (BMS) devices in previous trials. It is unknown, however, whether polymer-based (PB)-DES devices are as safe as PF-DES devices.
The purpose of this study was to compare temporal changes in Doppler COA gradient and SBP after transcatheter stent therapy versus surgical therapy for COA.
We compare the radiation exposure to patients during right TR-CAG with Tiger II catheter (Terumo Interventional Systems) vs Judkins right (JR) 4.0/Judkins left (JL) 3.5 catheters (Cordis Corporation).
To compare the safety of performing transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) under conscious sedation without an anesthetist present (TAVR-NA) vs TAVR performed with an anesthetist supervising sedation (TAVR-A).
A 52-year-old woman presented to another hospital with progressive dyspnea of 10-day duration. This case underscores the importance of image-guided pericardiocentesis.
