Drug-coated balloons (DCBs) have been shown to be superior to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for symptomatic femoropopliteal disease in randomized clinical trials; however, their clinical effectiveness and safety in more complex disease…
Periprocedural bleeding events during endovascular procedures are frequent and are associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs. The aim of this study was to determine the safety and accuracy of a novel bleed detection system…

Abstract: Objectives. To evaluate the safety and accuracy of the Early Bird Bleed Monitoring System (EBBMS; Saranas) for the detection of access-site related bleeds in humans undergoing endovascular procedures. Background.…

This study describes methods for crossing a severely stenotic aortic valve in light of modern imaging modalities (echocardiography, computed tomography, and fluoroscopy) and characterizes a successful crossing.
The minimalist approach to transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) focuses on avoiding extraneous invasive measures. Data describing the clinical impact of routine indwelling urinary catheter in TAVR patients are limited. We sought to examine…
There is an abundance of literature studying acute kidney injury following percutaneous coronary interventions, with very few studies done in the setting of percutaneous peripheral intervention. This article aims to review what we currently know…
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to major changes in hospital systems across the world. In an effort to reduce viral transmission, conserve resources, and in accordance with institutional and state mandates, all elective procedures…
Bioprosthetic valve fracture, where high-pressure balloon inflation is employed to fracture the surgical valve sewing ring to increase the effective orifice area (EOA), has been used as an adjunct for valve-in-valve procedures for degenerated…
This report provides a 30-year follow-up on a noteworthy case first described in 1989 by Fischman et al in the Journal of Invasive Cardiology. The original article provided the first known report of extensive intracoronary stenting, deployed in…
