Despite numerous advantages, vascular complications associated with percutaneous access can occur during and after TAVR, and increase morbidity and mortality significantly. Effective management of potentially catastrophic vascular complications often…
Our study aim was to define the optimal value of valve sizing for reducing paravalvular regurgitation after TAVI.
This case involves Swan-Ganz catheter placement in a patient who developed cardiogenic shock, possibly due to the catheter dissecting the intimal lining of the superior vena cava and endocardium.
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of OCT evaluation of SFA atherectomy in a patient from the Asia-Pacific region. We demonstrate the feasibility of this technique in Chinese populations.
To our knowledge, this is the first report describing coronary artery occlusion in a pediatric patient with critical aortic stenosis.
In the present case, multimodality images facilitated our understanding of the mechanism behind the patient’s restenosis.
This is a review of all published reports of radial artery access for diagnostic and/or therapeutic coronary interventions in patients with dextrocardia.
This is the first reported case of evidence of a hydrophilic wire traveling into a small branch and inducing perforation; this case highlights the need for fluoroscopically guided hydrophilic wire manipulation.
We present the first cases of Shockwave intravascular lithotripsy (Shockwave Medical), a novel coronary calcium modification device, being used in patients undergoing PCI for STEMI.
