We investigated whether a newly designed strategy of immediate transradial intervention using one sheathless hydrophilic-coated guiding catheter after diagnostic coronary angiography with one 4.0 Fr sheath via a single access site (the “1-1-1” strate…
We studied the safety and efficacy of tibio-pedal access as the sole primary access for revascularization of peripheral artery disease by reviewing a prospectively maintained database of patients where it was used as a primary access for retrograde d…
We examined coronary artery anatomy in patients referred for coronary angiography for the evaluation of perioperative MI after non-cardiac surgery.
A 72-year-old woman with severe mitral and tricuspid regurgitation secondary to chronic atrial fibrillation presented with refractory heart failure despite optimal medical treatment. She was considered inoperable, and thus underwent transcatheter edg…
Coronary artery anomalies are relatively rare (~1% on CTA). We present two exceedingly rare cases, as well as the first reported case of anomalous retro-aortic coronary arteries diagnosed with cardiac CTA and angiography.
This case of a 56-year-old woman with normal coronaries displays the side-to-side motion of the unengaged catheter followed by the rhythmic up-and-down, piston-like movements of the catheter tip after engagement.
This image shows an impressive “honeycomb” pattern of neoatherosclerosis in the context of very late in-stent restenosis. In this case, OCT excluded the most common mechanisms of late in-stent restenosis, underlying the complexity of this unpredictab…
We report an international experience of TAVR using the self-expanding Acurate neo valve (Boston Scientific) in aortic regurgitation.
Recent studies have challenged systematic pretreatment with a P2Y12 inhibitor before PCI in elective and NSTEMI patients. This study assesses outcomes after performing PCI immediately after coronary angiography with an exclusive “on-the-table” P2Y12 …
