BACKGROUND: Distal transradial access in the anatomical snuffbox has advantages over standard access in terms of patient and operator comfort levels and risk of ischemia. Radial artery preservation could be a relevant issue in patients requiring multiple radial artery procedures and coronary bypass with the use of a radial graft. One relevant drawback is the challenging puncture of a small and weak artery, with a steeper learning curve. AIM: The study was aimed at proving feasibility and safety of right and left transradial access in the anatomical snuffbox...

A 60-year-old male presented 12 months after CABG surgery with a large pulsatile sternal mass. CT scan of the chest demonstrated a pseudoaneurysm originating from the mid saphenous vein graft to the PDA measuring 7.7 x 7.2 x 6.0 cm. After a multidisciplinary consultation, a decision was made to place a Jostent GraftMaster to completely seal the communication of the extravasation.

We propose an evidenced-based algorithm for the selection of revascularization strategy (coronary artery bypass surgery, percutaneous coronary intervention, or optimal medical therapy) to be applied in multivessel, non-acute coronary syndrome presentations. This algorithm provides a highly effective tool that is comprehensible to both physicians and patients.

BACKGROUND: Coronary atherectomy, orbital or rotational, is frequently used for plaque modification in patients with heavily calcified lesions. Atherectomy can be associated with clinically significant bradyarrhythmias or transient atrioventricular block requiring temporary pacemaker insertion, mainly in lesions involving the right coronary artery or a dominant left circumflex artery. Bradyarrhythmias may be mediated by endogenous release of adenosine from red blood cell breakdown. Aminophylline, an adenosine antagonist, can prevent adenosine-mediated bradyarrhythmias...
