In a retrospective analysis, we investigated the risk of bleeding complications associated with right heart catheterization via the internal jugular vein in patients with and without full anticoagulation. 
In this review, we describe indications and contraindications to alcohol septal ablation, along with technical considerations related to the procedure. 
The study aim was to assess the effect of hourglass-shaped V8 and TAV8 balloons (InterValve, Inc) on aortic valve area and other outcomes in patients with severe aortic stenosis undergoing balloon aortic valvuloplasty. Use of the novel balloons was n…
Transpedal access is a novel, increasingly utilized technique for the management of complex peripheral artery disease (PAD). We performed a literature search and evaluated patient sample demographics, procedure indications, access and target vessel,…
Transcatheter heart valves such as the self-expandable Portico valve (St. Jude Medical) are being developed to overcome limitations of first-generation devices. Since clinical experience with this valve is still limited in a real-world setting, we in…
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between operator volume and implantable defibrillator lead failure and patient mortality at a single large implanting center. 
Herein, we describe a case of successful in-stent right coronary artery CTO-PCI performed with subadventitial crossing, crushing of the occluded stents, and advancement of a mother-and-child catheter to the distal right coronary artery through the su…
Bifurcation lesions may be encountered in approximately 15%-20% of PCIs. A 2-stent approach is required in up to 30% of these procedures. We describe a novel technique based on a modification of TAP stenting, suitable for procedures where a 2-stent s…
Kawasaki disease is an acute vasculitis that occurs predominantly in infants and children younger than 5 years old. If undiagnosed and untreated, the risk of developing coronary artery aneurysms increases to about 20%. In patients who present with an…
This case highlights a striking angiographic example of coronary-cameral fistula occurring after septal myomectomy, a complication occurring somewhat frequently with typical spontaneous resolution.
