OBJECTIVES: We aimed to test a novel stent-less revascularization strategy using a combination of excimer laser coronary angioplasty (ELCA) and drug-coated balloon (DCB) for patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). BACKGROUND: Percutaneous coronary intervention with drug eluting stents is a standard invasive treatment for ACS. Some unsolved issues however remain, such as stent thrombosis and bleeding risks associated with dual antiplatelet therapy. METHODS: Consecutive ACS patients were planned to receive either a DCB application following ELCA without a stent implantation or conventional revascularization with a coronary stent...

Polymer-free drug-eluting stents (PF-DES) were designed with the expectation of avoiding late restenosis and thrombosis related to the polymer used in traditional DES platforms. Furthermore, due to similarities with bare metal stents after drug elution, PF-DES has been considered as particularly suitable for patients at high bleeding risk. A variety of PF-DES platforms have been clinically tested. Despite their theoretical advantages, PF platforms showed comparable clinical outcomes with modern permanent- or biodegradable polymer-based DES up to 5 years after implantation...

Advancement of coronary interventions and portable hemodynamic device requires placement of large bore sheaths. Access for large caliber sheaths, its placement, maintenance, and hemostasis is very challenging and one of the key ailments for successful procedures. Traditional hemostasis method is manual compression, which is unattractive due to its own limitations and subsequent complications. Single closure device for sheath size larger than 8 French (Fr) is not available. We performed retrospective analysis of large cohort of patients with 13, 14 Fr sheaths (Impella device [ABIOMED]) percutaneous closure with the use of two Perclose devices...

Degenerative aortic valve stenosis is the most common valvular heart disease seen in developed countries. Since the implementation of transcatheter aortic valve replacement, there has been a surge of efforts to improve procedural technique as well as reduce mortality. Until recently, the mainstay method of assessment of valve implantation as well as paravalvular regurgitation has relied heavily on imaging techniques including transesophageal echocardiography and aortic root angiography. There has been a lot of scientific inquiry to identify biomarkers in the management of patients with aortic stenosis...

INTRODUCTION: Contrast induced nephropathy is linked to contrast utilization and strategies for minimizing renal injury are incorporated into many laboratories that perform coronary angiography. Contrast limits have been described, below which there is minimal incremental increase in the risk of renal injury. Whether a priori acknowledgement of these limits as part of a contrast "Time-Out" reduces contrast utilization has not been established. In this study, we investigate the effect of verbalizing pre-angiography and ½ time contrast thresholds on contrast utilization and associated clinical outcomes...
