Coronary angiography in a 44-year-old woman shows chronic dissection of the left sinus of Valsalva, totally obscuring the LMCA, with good collaterals supplying the left coronary system from the right coronary artery.
Agitated saline during central line placement is described for the purpose of identifying the subclavian vein during ultrasound-guided procedures.
We reviewed images from our intravascular ultrasound core lab to define the various locations of dissections in femoropopliteal arteries post balloon angioplasty in relation to plaque morphology.
This case illustrates the feasibility of percutaneous vascular repair following severe vascular injury during TAVR.
We present the diagnosis and treatment of a 90-year-old male with critical aortic stenosis and multiple medical comorbidities who underwent TAVR that was complicated by annular rupture.
The treatment of coronary lesions caused by blunt chest trauma is controversial. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a coronary dissection related to blunt chest trauma evaluated with OCT and treated with a magnesium resorbable scaffold.
Review of 4436 CTO-PCIs performed in 4340 patients between 2012 and 2018 at 25 sites produced 20 LMCA cases; we examined the clinical and angiographic characteristics and procedural outcomes of each case.
This article provides detailed guidance in performing hemodynamic assessment and invasive pulmonary angiography for the evaluation of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary disease.
We assessed the safety and feasibility of coronary orbital atherectomy in elderly patients with calcific coronary artery disease and severe aortic stenosis who were under consideration for TAVR.
