Self-expanding valves have been associated with superior hemodynamics versus balloon-expandable valves. Our aim was to compare invasive gradients between valve types for similarly sized valves in 499 patients who underwent transcatheter aortic valve…
In order to assess the vascular effects of rotational orbital atherectomy, we performed intravascular imaging with virtual histology intravascular optical coherence tomography in a 72-year-old man with critical limb ischemia of the right lower…
Sterile inflammatory reactions at vascular access sites have rarely been reported in the literature. Simple conservative treatment, as in this case, can lead to resolution of even extensive sterile abscesses.
Traditionally, management of lung sequestrations has been surgical. This is one of the few reports where a percutaneous management has resulted in resolution of symptoms and offers a novel approach for management.
In the current era of transcatheter edge-to-edge repair, deciding clip size in each case is still a challenge. We demonstrate that the XTR clip can achieve a better outcome than the NTR clip in a calcified leaflet.
We present a case in which optical coherence tomography was useful to characterize in vivo superficial calcific sheet and exclude other causes of acute coronary syndromes.
Our case demonstrates that rapid and complete revascularization by PCI can save a patient with acute myocardial infarction caused by simultaneous acute occlusion of the three major coronary arteries.
