The use of balloon-expandable prosthesis in the treatment of native aortic valve regurgitation in the presence of ascending aortic dissection is described.
A cancer patient presented with acute chest pain at rest 40 hours after IV fluorouracil infusion. Angiography showed evidence of myocardial bridging.
An OCT-guided watchful-waiting strategy is used to avoid the invasive treatment of the LMCA in a very young patient with massive coronary thrombosis.
Optimal GuideLiner positioning for OCT acquisition in tortuous vessels requires special attention to avoid iatrogenic dissection.
A broken TIVAD catheter segment was discovered lodged within the right ventricle of a man presenting with chest pain. The catheter removal is detailed.
The standard of care for ULMCA disease is CABG. However, PCI is also a reasonable option for the treatment for ULMCA disease, especially in patients who are not good candidates for surgical revascularization. We assessed the 1-year outcomes of patien…
Little is known about the long-term major cardiovascular events and bleeding complications of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention with radial vs femoral approach. Our objective was to compare the main outcomes of radial versus femo…
We assess the safety and efficacy of arteriotomy closure with the intravascular FemoSeal vascular closure device compared with manual compression in patients undergoing diagnostic cardiac catheterization via the common femoral artery.
This study assesses the safety and efficacy of arteriotomy closure with the intravascular FemoSeal vascular closure device compared to manual compression in patients undergoing diagnostic cardiac catheterization via the common femoral artery.
Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion is occasionally incomplete, with residual permeability of the LAA on cardiac computed tomography. The cause for this is unclear. Our objective was to determine if residual permeability was related to…
