Original Contribution Vascular Closure Devices Attenuate Femoral Access Complications of Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Pedro Beraldo de Andrade, MD, PhD; José de Ribamar Costa Jr, MD, PhD; Fábio Salerno Rinaldi, MD; Igor Ribeiro de Cas…
Our randomized study evaluates severe access-related complications using vascular closure devices for patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) by comparing radial access with a compression device and anatomic landmark-guid…
Limited data exist on current cardiogenic shock (CS) management strategies. We distributed a 48-question survey on the diagnosis and management of CS. Our survey suggests opportunities for standardization of care.
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement for severe aortic stenosis is an increasingly prevalent treatment in patients who are intermediate or high risk for surgical intervention. This study explores symptomatic relief and quality of life outcomes in a…
This study was designed to determine the feasibility and safety of robotic peripheral vascular intervention (PVI) with the CorPath System (Corindus Vascular Robotics) for treating femoropopliteal lesions with drug-coated balloon, and to evaluate the…
A substantial proportion of patients have high bleeding risk and are contraindicated to antithrombotic therapy. We assess a cohort of very high bleeding risk patients discharged with no antithrombotics after left atrial appendage closure.
The impact of intravascular ultrasound utilization for stent optimization on the long-term outcomes in chronic total occlusion percutaneous coronary intervention has received limited study.
Atrioventricular block is a common complication of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Although conventional transvenous dual-chamber pacemaker (PM) is ideal for atrioventricular block, leadless PM is less invasive and may be suitable for…
Sizing of iliac vein stents remains controversial. We present the first Venovo venous stent (BD/Bard) that was explanted because of worsening of back and leg pain post treatment and analyze data from the first 50 consecutive Venovo venous stents from…
Patients with single-ventricle congenital heart disease undergo staged surgical palliations leading to a final Fontan procedure. After Fontan, cardiac index is primarily determined by pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR); we therefore hypothesized tha…
