Transcatheter stent placement is an appealing option to treat discrete branch pulmonary artery stenosis in small, premature neonates in whom surgical treatment with arterioplasty can be challenging.
The diagnosis and management of an exceedingly rare anomalous right coronary artery from pulmonary artery are described.
Two cases of pressure wire entrapment that may be related to wire design, with both instances occurring at the level of the pressure transducer.
Successful transcatheter closure of an unusual double aortic root-to-right ventricular outflow tract fistula with two Amplatzer duct occluder II devices.
Prompt stenting of the dissection entry flap allowed for stabilization and eventual healing of a severe catheter-induced aortic dissection, without resorting to surgical intervention.
Appropriate use criteria (AUC) for coronary revascularization were developed to deliver high-quality care; however, the prognostic impact of these criteria remains unclear. We sought to assess the outcomes of patients treated with second-generation d…
We present the indications for use, temporal trends, complications, and 1-year clinical outcomes after single-access percutaneous mechanical circulatory support device placement from years 2009-2015 at our institution.
The first reported case series of the Lotus valve (Boston Scientific) for the treatment of surgical aortic bioprosthesis failure.
