Orbital atherectomy of long, diffusely calcified lesions may increase the risk of periprocedural angiographic complications. The aim of this study was to determine the clinical outcomes of patients with long, diffusely calcified coronary artery lesio…
Angiogram of the right coronary artery was used to reveal a subtotal occlusion abutting the proximal end of the stent with TIMI I flow that responded quickly to intracoronary nitrates. The patient was diagnosed with vasospastic angina.
Percutaneous aortic balloon valvuloplasty as a bridge-to-decision strategy was performed in an 89-year-old woman with multiple comorbidities and cachexia. The patient did well; after 2 weeks, she was discharged home and referred for possible TAVR.
Veno-arterial loop is a feasible and safe technique to facilitate mitral valve crossing for balloon mitral valvuloplasty in mitral stenosis patients.   
The patient underwent mitral valve replacement with a bioprosthetic porcine valve, tricuspid valve annuloplasty, and left atrial appendage ligation with good result and an uncomplicated postoperative course.
This case represents the first reported simultaneous transcatheter aortic and mitral valve replacements for native aortic and mitral stenosis performed via the transapical approach. 
An assessment of the feasibility and short-term clinical outcomes associated with resorbable magnesium scaffold implantation in the setting of primary percutaneous coronary intervention for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
An assessment of the diagnostic performance of angiography-derived FFR measurements (FFRangio) in patients with stable coronary artery disease when used online in the catheterization laboratory during routine coronary angiography.
We examined the baseline clinical and angiographic characteristics and procedural outcomes of 130 target lesions in 121 consecutive PCIs (n = 116 patients) in which excimer laser coronary atherectomy was performed at three United States Department of…
This study was aimed at proving feasibility and safety of right and left transradial access in the anatomical snuffbox.
