We evaluated changes in invasive hemodynamic measures before and after ultrasound-assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis (USAT) in 41 patients with USAT ≤24 hours vs USAT >24 hours. 
This study evaluates the impact of a radiological low frame-rate protocol in a standard angiographic system and the implementation of a noise-reduction technology on patient radiation exposure during TAVR.
Images and videos help describe a high-risk coronary intervention of an elongated and extremely tortuous LIMA graft to the LAD. LIMA had a complete 360° loop at the mid segment, followed by severe tortuosity and a subtotal occlusion at the anastomosi…
In this heart failure patient, TEE images confirm the presence of the persistent left SVC with a dilated coronary sinus, severe mitral regurgitation, and aortic stenosis. Computed tomography reveals an isolated persistent left SVC and rules out anoma…
A 60-year-old male presented 12 months after CABG surgery with a large pulsatile sternal mass. CT scan of the chest demonstrated a pseudoaneurysm originating from the mid saphenous vein graft to the PDA measuring 7.7 x 7.2 x 6.0 cm. After a multidisc…
Demonstration of a novel technique to safely exclude long aneurysmal segments that require multiple covered stents in a single segment. In addition, these images and video series demonstrate the usefulness of balloon-assisted GuideLiner tracking to p…
This letter addresses an article regarding coronary-cameral fistula after septal myomectomy published in the December 2017 issue of the Journal of Invasive Cardiology and authored by Walters D, et al. 
This study was undertaken to determine bleeding complications during right heart catheterization with an elevated international normalized ratio value.
This first-in-human study evaluated the safety and technical feasibility of the Tempo temporary cardiac pacing lead (BioTrace Medical), which includes a novel fixation mechanism and soft tip.
