This study compared clinically driven target-lesion revascularization, target-vessel revascularization, and target-limb revascularization outcomes at 1 year between drug-eluting stent and bare-metal stent treatments in a real-world setting.
Patients with massive and submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) require rapid identification, triage, and consideration for reperfusion therapy. The objective of this analysis was to evaluate a pilot study using the existing STEMI team and a dedicated P…
We aimed to determine whether prior balloon aortic valvuloplasty would unfavorably impact transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Outcomes of interest were procedural results, hospital stay, and in-hospital outcomes, including major adverse events.
Acute vascular thrombosis is associated with significant morbidity and mortality in children. We examine the use of ultrasound-assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis in a pediatric center for treating acute thrombosis.
This case highlights the importance of nitrate administration, as routinely performed during coronary arteriography.
Multiple rounds of aspiration thrombectomy followed by balloon angioplasty of the left anterior descending (LAD) failed to completely restore the flow into the distal LAD secondary to re-occlusion from thrombus formation.
A 75-year-old man with a history of mechanical aortic valve replacement with aortic conduit for severe aortic insufficiency underwent routine screening computed tomography evaluation revealing right coronary anastomosis endoleak and proximal aortic r…
There are limited data regarding the snuffbox approach. Our experience highlights the feasibility of snuffbox approach as the access route for primary PCI and recannulation of distal radial artery for staged PCI.
We present a patient with non-obstructive intraluminal clot protrusion treated with medical therapy. Follow-up OCT scan showed layered neointimal changes similar to images observed in stent failure.
A 70-year-old man with a history of two successfully treated in-stent chronic total occlusions (IS-CTO) of the ostial right coronary artery (RCA) using drug-eluting stents presented with typical angina.
