We evaluated the efficacy of low-dose radiation (≤7.5 frames/second [f/s]) compared with standard-dose radiation (≥10 f/s) in cardiac catheterization and percutaneous coronary intervention.
The optimal timing of AVR among patients with asymptomatic severe aortic stenosis (AS) remains uncertain and controversial. We conducted a cohort study of consecutive patients with severe AS.
CTO PCI using the hybrid algorithm has traditionally been performed femorally using 8 Fr sheaths. Antegrade dissection and re-entry has facilitated procedures using 6 or 7 Fr guides via the radial artery. Radial artery dysfunction is a recognized com…
