The complex hemodynamics of stenosis might not be sufficiently explained by either pressure or flow alone. CDP, a non-dimensional index derived from fundamental fluid dynamic principles based on a combination of intracoronary pressure and flow, may i…
Data are limited regarding the clinical results of transradial coronary intervention (TRI) in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by cardiogenic shock. TRI is associated with fewer major bleeding and vascular complications than transfemoral…
Data of same-day discharge and overnight-stay patients undergoing elective PCI in a high-volume center were compared. We specifically evaluated the incidence of net adverse cardiovascular events within 48 hours post index procedure among both groups…
The performance of second-generation DES versus first-generation DES implantation in patients with stable angina and single chronic total occlusion (CTO) has not yet been studied. Herein, we sought to investigate whether a successful PCI for CTO usin…
The DiamondBack 360° Peripheral Orbital Atherectomy System (Cardiovascular Systems, Inc) was specifically designed to work in severely calcified plaque. This article reviews the history, mechanism of action, evolution, clinical data, and future appli…

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been extensively studied in the coronary circulation; however, its use in the peripheral arterial circulation is scarce. We present two cases of OCT use as an ancillary imaging tool during SFA endovascular inter…
Inferior vena cava (IVC) stenting in patients suffering from Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is sometimes complicated by stent migration or misplacement. Here, we describe a novel stent anchoring technique to prevent this complication while using balloon-…
Born out of a belief that physicians may be unduly influenced by industry relationships, two congressmen constructed a bill to mandate public reporting of any and all direct and indirect payments to physicians. Dr Naidu offers his opinion on this par…
We report the case of a patient who developed refractory CS during elective PCI and was successfully managed with concomitant use of IABP and the Impella 2.5 L support device.
