Radial artery spasm is a known complication of transradial cardiac catheterization. However, severe spasm with sheath entrapment is rare. We describe such a case, and the condition's response to an alternative removal method after conventional efforts failed. A 68-year-old man presented for coronary angiography. We introduced a 5F sheath into the right radial artery, but, because of severe arterial spasm, we could not aspirate blood from the sheath or retract it. We sedated the patient and waited for the spasm to subside; however, the radial sheath remained entrapped...

Right ventricular failure secondary to pulmonary embolism is associated with morbidity and death. The Impella RP System has often been used for percutaneous mechanical circulatory support in patients with right ventricular failure from other causes, including myocardial infarction, cardiac surgery, and left ventricular assist device implantation. We report 2 cases of massive pulmonary embolism in which combined Impella RP use and ultrasound-assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis effectively treated shock caused by right ventricular failure and contributed to successful outcomes...

Endovascular aortic treatment is being performed more often and offers some advantages over open surgery. Nevertheless, open repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms is still relevant in complex cases, including combined chronic aortic dissection, congenital aortic abnormalities such as aberrant right subclavian artery, and dense pleural adhesions after a previous thoracotomy. We describe our successful use of open repair in a 46-year-old man who had these multiple abnormalities.

Management of sternal wound dehiscence in newborns after cardiac operations can be a slow and lengthy process, during which the risk of progression to deep sternal wound infection and mediastinitis remains a concern. We report the case of a neonate born with single-ventricle physiology who underwent a Damus-Kaye-Stansel procedure as first-stage palliation toward creating Fontan circulation. The postoperative period was characterized by sterile wound dehiscence of the subcutaneous layers. We used a CorMatrix extracellular matrix patch as an adjunct to repair the wound defect...

Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleep-related breathing disorder that has a major impact on cardiovascular function. It has been associated with hypertension, coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death, and heart failure. This review focuses on the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea and heart failure with either reduced or preserved ejection fraction. We discuss the pathophysiology of obstructive sleep apnea, as well as its prevalence, treatment outcomes with continuous positive airway pressure, and prognosis in these 2 distinct types of heart failure...

MULTICENTER STUDY
John E Thomas, Seungho Kang, Charles J Wyatt, Forest S Kim, A David Mangelsdorff, Fred K Weigel
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) protects erythrocytes from oxidative stress and hemolysis; G6PD deficiency is the most prevalent enzymopathy. The United States military routinely performs tests to prevent exposing G6PD-deficient personnel to antimalarial drugs that might cause life-threatening hemolytic reactions. In addition, G6PD is a key determinant of vascular function, and its deficiency can lead to impaired nitric oxide production and greater vascular oxidant stress-precursors to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Kamran Zafar, Nirav Patil
The clinical characteristics and outcomes among patients with inpatient-onset non-ST-segment-elevation acute coronary syndrome have not been fully investigated. Therefore, we conducted a retrospective single-center analysis of patients who were ≥18 years old and diagnosed with acute coronary syndrome at our hospital during 2014. We performed logistic regression analysis to evaluate outcomes and made adjustments for age, race, family history of premature coronary artery disease, and comorbidities. Our search through 31,274 hospital discharge records identified 683 cases of acute coronary syndrome: 32 were inpatient-onset and 651 were outpatient-onset...

Infection is an important complication of cardiac implantable electronic device procedures. To further study the factors associated with infection, we retrospectively reviewed the records of 3,205 consecutive patients who had undergone de novo or revision cardiac electronic device implantation at our institution from March 2011 through March 2015. We recorded all infections and specified whether they were related to the characteristics of the patient, device, or procedure. To identify predictors of infection, we performed multivariate analysis...
