We sought to evaluate different side-branch dilation strategies after provisional T-stenting strategy with resorbable magnesium scaffolds using silicon bifurcation phantoms.
The aim of this long-term follow-up analysis was to validate the impact of patent foramen ovale closure on recurrent ischemic events.
This case, which almost ended in a compartment syndrome, is an extremely uncommon complication of transradial catheterization, with a described incidence around 0.125%.
This is the first case report of pseudoaneurysm formation after cardiac catheterization through the distal radial artery, which was easily treated by external compression.
Letter to the editor regarding hydrophilic-wire induced vascular perforation causing mediastinal hematoma during transradial coronary intervention.
Eleven years after DES implantation, a patient presented with AMI despite continued dual-antiplatelet therapy. Coronary angiography revealed total occlusion of the proximal LAD.
Coronary artery air embolism can be fatal if not proficiently managed. Vasospasm is said to be protective in that it breaks the larger air bubbles, as occurred in the present case.
We present two patients with refractory heart failure due to mitral paravalvular leak (PVL) in whom percutaneous PVL closure was performed in the immediate postoperative period.
Crossing the aortic annulus with a prosthetic valve was impossible due to severe calcification. A snare-catheter technique was used to centralize the entire system with the aortic orifice.
We hypothesized that a drug-coated balloon could improve treatment efficacy while maintaining safety when compared with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty for the treatment of atherosclerotic infrapopliteal arterial lesions.
