We describe our experience transforming our cardiac catheterization laboratories to accommodate an influx of COVID-19 patients so as to provide other hospitals with a potential blueprint.
We conducted a large-scale echo-Doppler evaluation of radial patency including prospectively all patients who underwent coronary angiography and/or angioplasty with radial catheterization at our center in 2018.
We compared time to hemostasis and patient experience with VasoStat vs balloon compression with the TR Band (Terumo) in a randomized, prospective trial among subjects undergoing radial catheterization procedures with same-day discharge.
We describe the case of a 48-year-old, morbidly obese man who presented with acute respiratory insufficiency and was found to have bilateral submassive subocclusive PE, worse on the right.
Vessel prepping is an essential component of an optimal strategy in treating infrainguinal peripheral arterial disease. We discuss methods to achieve optimal vessel preparation.
We performed a prospective study to assess the correlation and limits of agreement between measured and assumed oxygen consumption in adults with congenital heart disease.
While a minimalist TAVR approach has shown safety and efficacy at civilian hospitals, limited data exist regarding developing this approach at Veterans Affairs medical centers. We implemented TAVR with minimalist approach at a university-affiliated V…
Long-term outcomes of BVS implantations that utilize an optimized technique (OIT) in unselected patients/lesions are lacking. The aim of this study was to assess the real-world, long-term clinical outcomes of BVS (Absorb; Abbott Vascular) with OIT.
In this report, we aimed to present our data on same-day discharge after MitraClip (Abbott Structural) procedures.
