CTO of the SFA occurs in >50% of the patient population with peripheral artery disease. This study assesses the safety of the retrograde procedure with long-term follow-up of 86 patients; our results show a high technical success rate and low perc…
The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of baseline thrombocytopenia (TCP) on short-term and long-term outcomes after TAVR. This study on 732 consecutive patients indicated that baseline TCP is a strong predictor of mortality.
We assess the angiographic and clinical outcomes of patients with a history of CABG surgery who underwent orbital atherectomy for the treatment of severely calcified coronary lesions. Despite a higher-risk baseline profile, patients with a history of…

PCI of a left main coronary artery chronic total occlusion followed by PCI of the right coronary artery was performed in a patient refusing CABG surgery.
Aspiration thrombectomy was performed to retrieve intact thrombus in a 69-year-old woman. Bradycardia and hypotension rapidly resolved. Balloon angioplasty was performed at the site of proximal RCA in-stent restenosis with improved angiographic appea…
Aortic aneurysms compressing an atrium causing symptoms are uncommon. We describe a case of bi-atrial compression due to ascending and descending aneurysms leading to dyspnea.  
We present a 75-year-old male with acute inferior STEMI, severe coronary artery ectasia, and large thrombus burden in the right coronary artery to support the use of intracoronary thrombolysis as a second-line therapy for a large thrombus burden in p…
An 86-year-old female patient was referred for treatment of symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. The heart team decided to perform transfemoral TAVI. A 25 mm valve was implanted, but it migrated low into the left ventricular outflow tract. The subsequ…
Hemostasis following transradial access (TRA) is usually achieved by mechanical compression. We investigated use of the QuikClot Radial hemostasis pad compared with the TR Band to shorten hemostasis after TRA.
