OBJECTIVES: Heart failure is the leading cause of hospitalization among patients older than 65 years of age. A significant proportion of patients require heart catheterization for diagnostic, therapeutic, and prognostic purposes. To determine the feasibility and safety of full arm-arm catheterization access, we aimed to compare this approach with other established catheterization approaches. METHODS AND RESULTS: In this retrospective cohort study, a total of 493 consecutive patients with heart failure requiring right and left heart catheterization were studied and analyzed...

OBJECTIVES: To report adverse event rates after rotational atherectomy (RA) with contemporary drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation and compare RA to cutting balloon (CB) angioplasty and balloon-only angioplasty (BA) in the all-comers ADAPT-DES trial. BACKGROUND: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of calcified lesions is increasingly common and is associated with a high risk of adverse events. RA can ablate calcified plaque and facilitate stent delivery; however, in conjunction with first-generation DES, RA was not superior to BA alone in regard to adverse events...

BACKGROUND: Appropriate use criteria (AUC) for coronary revascularization were developed to deliver high-quality care; however, the prognostic impact of these criteria remains unclear. We sought to assess the outcomes of patients treated with second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) classified according to the updated American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association/Society for Cardiac Angiography and Intervention AUC for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)...

BACKGROUND: Accurate measurement of aortic annulus is crucial before transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Computed tomography (CT) angiography is the most commonly utilized method, but requires contrast administration. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is a promising alternative modality to provide aortic annulus measurements. Few studies have compared the clinical feasibility and accuracy of non-contrast CMR to contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) angiography in order to provide a non-contrast alternative to CT annular sizing...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure has become a routine procedure and was proven to be safe and feasible. In a recently published pooled analysis of randomized trials, percutaneous PFO closure was shown to more effectively reduce recurrent stroke when compared with medical therapy in patients with cryptogenic strokes. However, procedural safety and closure rate are device dependent. METHODS: We performed a propensity-score matched comparison of 28 patients undergoing percutaneous PFO closure using the Cera PFO occluder (CPO) with 28 patients who received the Amplatzer PFO occluder (APO)...

Patients with an indwelling Impella may require escalation of hemodynamic support or exchange to another circulatory assistance platform. As such, preservation of vascular access is preferable in cases where anticoagulation cannot be discontinued or to facilitate exchange to an alternative catheter or closure device. Challenges exist in avoiding bleeding and loss of wire access in these situations. We describe a single-access "Trojan Horse" technique that minimizes bleeding while maintaining arterial access for rapid exchange of this percutaneous ventricular assist device...

INTRODUCTION: We examined the impact of proximal vessel tortuosity on the outcomes of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS: The baseline clinical and angiographic characteristics and procedural outcomes of 1618 consecutive CTO-PCIs performed between 2012 and 2016 at 14 United States centers in 1589 patients were reviewed. RESULTS: Mean patient age was 65.3 ± 10.0 years and 85% were men. Moderate/severe proximal vessel tortuosity was present in 35...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to describe trends in the use of preprocedural P2Y12 inhibitors and their clinical impact in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND: Oral P2Y12 inhibitors are ubiquitously used medications; however, the specific timing of initial P2Y12 inhibitor administration remains intensely debated. METHODS: Our study population comprised 74,053 consecutive patients undergoing PCI at 47 hospitals in Michigan from January 2013 through June 2015...

BACKGROUND: The American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) have developed guidelines to assist clinicians in making evidence-based decisions. This study compares the ACC/AHA and ESC guidelines for the management of patients with valvular heart disease (VHD). METHODS: The current ACC/AHA and ESC guidelines for VHD, last updated in 2014 and 2012, respectively, were compared by class of recommendation (COR), level of evidence (LOE), and content...

BACKGROUND: Fractional flow reserve (FFR) value between 0.75 and 0.80 is considered the "gray zone" and outcomes data relative to treatment strategy (revascularization vs medical therapy alone [deferral]) are limited for this group. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 238 patients (64.3 ± 8.6 years; 97% male; 45% diabetic) with gray-zone FFR were followed for the primary endpoint of major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE), defined as a composite of death, myocardial infarction (MI), and target-vessel revascularization...

A patient with history of orthotopic heart transplant (OHT) followed by tricuspid valve replacement and two subsequent balloon valvuloplasties was offered transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement (TTVR) to avoid what would have been his fourth sternotomy. TTVR in patients with OHT can be a valuable approach to prevent further open-heart surgeries, which carry added morbidity and mortality.

The hemodynamic features of subacute aortic regurgitation include equalization of the left ventricular pressure and the aortic pressure during diastole, a mildly increased pulse pressure, and systemic hypotension. These findings are distinct from the hemodynamics of chronic aortic regurgitation.

A 64-year-old man presented with previous non-ST elevation myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock. Due to hemodynamic instability, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was performed with implantation of two everolimus-eluting stents by V-stenting technique to LM-LAD and LM-LCX. After 9 months without symptoms, he developed progressive angina. Non-selective LM coronary angiography was performed due to stents protrusion in the aortic root. A 128-slice dual-source coronary CT angiography showed severe LM-LAD stent underexpansion with critical in-stent restenosis at the proximal third...

We report the case of a myocardial infarction in the post-partum period due to a spontaneous coronary artery dissection. The role of intracoronary imaging was critical: OCT imaging led us to formulate the right diagnosis.OCT imaging revealed a multiple coronary artery dissection in the left main non-detectable on angiography and in the circumflex, with evidence of coronary hematoma in the circumflex and left anterior descending. Beside dissection, OCT showed evidence of a thrombus near the coronary tear in the left main...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a viable alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in patients with severe aortic stenosis (SAS) who are at high risk for surgery. We sought to evaluate the outcomes of TAVR vs SAVR in low-intermediate risk patients with SAS. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed random-effects meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and propensity-matched observational studies comparing TAVR vs SAVR for low-intermediate risk patients...

BACKGROUND: Target-lesion revascularization (TLR) and loss of patency remain high following treatment of in-stent restenosis (ISR) of the femoropopliteal (FP) artery. Excimer laser atherectomy (ELA) is effective in reducing TLR and improves patency at 6-month and 1-year follow-up when compared with balloon angioplasty (PTA). The long-term sustainability of these early results is unknown. We present a retrospective analysis from our center on the 5-year outcomes of ELA in the treatment of ISR of the FP arteries...
