Coronary Imaging

Featured

Coronary artery anomalies are relatively rare (~1% on CTA). We present two exceedingly rare cases, as well as the first reported case of anomalous retro-aortic coronary arteries diagnosed with cardiac CTA and angiography.

The objective of this study was to determine whether anatomical features of the aortic valve and aorta visualized by CT are predictive parameters of stroke.

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. 

Images illustrate 3D reconstruction CT showing fistula arising from the LMCA draining into the SVC. Additional angiographic images show the fistula before and after percutaneous closure with Amplatzer Vascular plugs.

We assessed the impact of intravascular ultrasound/optical coherence tomography on outcomes of patients who underwent orbital atherectomy.
