We evaluated the incidence and timing of non-cardiac surgery after drug-eluting stent implantation according to patient age.
The aim of this study was to determine the impact of new permanent pacemaker implantation in patients with baseline low LVEF at 2-year follow-up after TAVR.
This study retrospectively reviewed all consecutive patients who underwent PCI with Impella support between 2012 and 2017 for AMI complicated by cardiogenic shock at our institution.
This study investigated the short-term and long-term outcomes of urgent TAVR vs elective TAVR under a minimalist strategy (transfemoral approach with conscious sedation and no TEE guidance).
We report an original technique for femoral access integrating angiographic, guidewire, and ultrasound (AGU) guidance, working together to obtain the best femoral artery stick.
A 31-year-old man with Noonan syndrome presented with severe postanoxic coma, but normalized ECG and stable hemodynamics. Angiography documented a giant RCA supplying collateral flow to the LCA, which presented a LM functional occlusion.
This case illustrates that the LAmbre device can be used for complex left atrial appendage anatomies that are not suitable for the Watchman device.
We present a 66-year-old man with refractory angina who was admitted for PCI through a tortuous saphenous vein graft sequentially anastomosed with a diagonal and a first marginal branch.
This report evaluates endothelialization in vivo and demonstrates that 6 months of postimplantation prophylactic therapy may not provide sufficient time for adequate endothelialization.
