More From Coronary Imaging

Coronary Imaging
A 25-year-old man came to our clinic with complaints of exertional palpitations and dyspnea. He had skeletal features suggestive of Marfan’s syndrome.
Coronary Imaging
Our case emphasizes the need to use intravascular imaging to optimize stent implantation in the left main coronary artery.
Coronary Imaging
We reviewed images from our intravascular ultrasound core lab to define the various locations of dissections in femoropopliteal arteries post balloon angioplasty in relation to plaque morphology.
Coronary Imaging
We present the diagnosis and treatment of a 90-year-old male with critical aortic stenosis and multiple medical comorbidities who underwent TAVR that was complicated by annular rupture.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO), Coronary Imaging
The treatment of coronary lesions caused by blunt chest trauma is controversial. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a coronary dissection related to blunt chest trauma evaluated with OCT and treated with a magnesium resorbable scaffold.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO), Coronary Imaging
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of OCT evaluation of SFA atherectomy in a patient from the Asia-Pacific region. We demonstrate the feasibility of this technique in Chinese populations.
Coronary Imaging
Our experience suggests that ultrasound-assisted thrombolysis with the EkoSonic system could be a valid bail-out strategy in cases of massive pulmonary embolism unresponsive to systemic thrombolysis and provides insight into the role of prolonged
Coronary Imaging
Plaque rupture is known to affect the mismatch between anatomy and physiology. In this case, we relied on fractional flow reserve along with the tomographic perspective of intravascular ultrasound.
Coronary Imaging
There are many underlying mechanisms for cocaine-associated myocardial infarction, and the culprit must be elucidated for appropriate therapeutic management. Optical coherence tomography provides unique insights when angiography alone has limited
Coronary Imaging
Epicardial hematoma can manifest immediately or within a few minutes to hours after coronary intervention. Multimodality imaging is critical for diagnosis and management of such cases.
