A 72-year-old man was admitted because of persistent atrial fibrillation after suffering a stroke 4 months prior. A left atrial appendage was discovered and closed using a kissing-Watchman technique.
A 53-year-old man with stable coronary disease and dyslipidemia was admitted with sudden pain of severe intensity in the left flank. Selective catheterization of the left renal artery, followed by alteplase infusion for 6 hours, resolved the patient’…
Coronary lithoplasty is a promising technique that can overcome issues regarding the treatment of undilatable, heavily calcified, de novo, and in-stent restenotic lesions, allowing plaque modification and successful stent deployment, as demonstrated…
Certain factors like ostial disease, chronic total occlusion, and long, multiple stents are the main causes of multiple stent fractures, as were present in this case. Such stent fractures are usually associated with significant in-stent restenosis; h…
This was an unusual case of a large renal artery pseudoaneurysm with impending rupture, which was successfully treated with an endovascular stent-graft in a solitary kidney.
The common cause of renal artery stenosis in young is fibromuscular dysplasia or Takayasu arteritis. Recanalized thrombus, on the other hand, is a rare cause for renal artery stenosis in young patients. OCT imaging confirmed the diagnosis and optimiz…
Optimal timing for percutaneous mitral regurgitation (MR) treatment using MitraClip remains unclear. We evaluated the outcomes after MitraClip in 55 patients with moderate resting MR, progressing to severe exercise-induced MR and compared them to 166…
Tibiopedal retrograde revascularization of below-the-knee lesions is an emerging technique in peripheral interventions. We performed an observational cohort study of 194 consecutive adult patients with critical limb ischemia who underwent endovascula…
Despite advancements in endovascular therapy, there have been significant limitations in invasive interventions aimed at revascularization. The transpedal tibial artery retrograde approach has been described as an alternative access for patients with…
