This study evaluated the relationship between gender and angiographic and clinical outcomes in patients with severely calcified lesions who underwent orbital atherectomy.
The authors discuss this month's article by Lee et al, which focuses on device-specific outcomes and reports similar angiographic and clinical outcomes between females and males undergoing orbital atherectomy for plaque modification. 
This editorial discusses the upcoming revision to the Appropriate Use Criteria for Revascularization, and its implications on physician reimbursement and patient-centered care. 
This study determines the patient radiation exposure and contrast agent variation during transcatheter aortic valve implantation procedures resulting from technological improvements.
The authors offer a commentary on this month's article by Maccagni et al, who describe their experience with contrast use and radiation exposure in transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedures over certain time intervals.
Although the feasibility and safety of robotically assisted peripheral vascular intervention (PVI) for iliac and femoral peripheral arterial disease (PAD) have been demonstrated, robotic PVI for below-the-knee disease has never been reported. We pres…
We aimed to illustrate one of the mechanisms of rotational atherectomy burr entrapment in a coronary stent where the burr was rolled up in the stent’s struts. Physicians performing rotational atherectomy should be aware of this complication and know…
We present the case of a 73-year-old male who presented with exertional angina; imaging demonstrated severe coronary artery disease and a large coronary artery fistula. Ligation of the fistula resulted in severe right ventricular failure and cardioge…
PCI for occlusive in-stent restenosis is challenging principally due to the highly resistant nature of the material that comprises the proximal cap. We present a case where conventional techniques failed, and its successful resolution with deliberate…
CENTRAL was a prospective, multicenter, 100 patient study designed to evaluate the ability of a recanalization catheter system to cross chronic total occlusions (CTOs) of the superficial femoral artery while staying within the central vessel lumen.
