An overview of the pros and cons of primary stenting of femoropopliteal (FP) arteries vs alternative approaches including provisional stenting following POBA, atherectomy and/or drug-coated balloons.
A 76-year-old previously well female with late-presentation ACS underwent left ventriculography, which demonstrated contrast leak into the pericardium consistent with left ventricular free-wall rupture. This case highlights the persistent utility of…
The orbital atherectomy system (OAS) is the most recent innovation to facilitate stent placement in heavily calcified lesions. This study shows that OAS use via the radial approach may be a safe and feasible option to assist in the treatment of heavi…
In order to obviate double arterial access for bi-coronary visualization during transradial intervention of chronic total coronary occlusions, a novel 3-in-6 mother-and-child technique was applied. This method to visualize both coronary arteries simu…
We aimed to investigate the feasibility and safety of alcohol septal ablation (ASA) via transradial approach using a sheathless guiding catheter. 
There are limited reports of transpedal artery access for peripheral artery interventions, but none to date describing routine primary transpedal artery approach for SFA stenting. We report on 4 patients who underwent successful endovascular SFA sten…
Complete atrioventricular block (cAVB) is considered the most serious adverse event after transcatheter closure of ventricular septal defect (VSD). This study evaluates the incidence of postprocedure cAVB and its relationship with different transcath…
This analysis compares the procedural outcomes of PAD patients treated with orbital atherectomy stratified by Rutherford class and acute angiographic outcomes of these patients stratified by degree of lesion calcification.
The aim of this study was to demonstrate the efficiency of ASD closure with self-centering devices in children and to present the results of the new pediatric version of the balloon-assisted technique in young children and its relation to interatrial…
