Atherosclerotic disease of the shaft of the IMA is rare. Angiography or arterial duplex ultrasound before bypass surgery of the IMA should be performed even when considering the patient for an emergent bypass surgery.
This invasive and non-invasive imaging series represents a classic rupture of a non-obstructive plaque with thin-cap fibroatheroma.
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported RA procedure with transvenous pacing utilizing a complete forearm approach, which illustrates the feasibility of this procedure and its advantages for the patient.
Color-flow Doppler TEE during valve-in-valve TAVR illustrates the placement of a 23 mm Edwards Sapien 3 valve carefully positioned within a displaced 23 mm Edwards Sapien XT valve.
The aim of this study was to determine the differences in lead failure mechanisms across the major United States implantable defibrillator lead manufacturers (Boston Scientific, Medtronic, and St. Jude Medical), between all non-recalled and recalled…
We propose a dissection classification combining depth of injury from intima to adventitia with circumference of dissection. This classification exhibits six dissection grades (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, and C2) as seen on IVUS (the “iDissection” classifica…
Eccentric valve deployment after TAVR has been associated with abnormal leaflet shear stresses that may accelerate structural valve deterioration. This is a retrospective cohort analysis of valve symmetry in 100 patients who received Sapien 3 valves…
The aim of our study was to evaluate the safety, feasibility, and cost effectiveness of a 48 mm everolimus-eluting stent (EES) during treatment of very long coronary lesions.
We report the 1-year outcomes of real-world patients with severely calcified coronary arteries who underwent orbital atherectomy.
The goal of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the second-generation robotic-assisted system CorPath GRX (Corindus) for percutaneous coronary intervention.
