OBJECTIVE: To report a first case series of the Lotus valve (Boston Scientific) for the treatment of surgical aortic bioprosthesis failure. BACKGROUND: Valve-in-valve (VIV) transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is an established management option for surgical aortic bioprosthesis failure. Although TAVI has proven efficacious, complications relating to suboptimal valve implantation have been reported in approximately 5% of patients. The Lotus valve is fully repositionable and retrievable, and therefore enables complete assessment of valve function prior to definitive deployment...

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: 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)...

Cardiac manifestations and angiographic characteristics of coronary artery disease in identical twins have been previously dealt with in a handful of case reports and series; yet, the results were highly controversial. Our rare case demonstrates striking similarities in both the timing and type of clinical manifestation, as well as in the underlying anatomy and the distribution of coronary artery disease. When premature coronary artery disease is found in one of a monozygotic twin pair, evaluating the other twin is a reasonable approach...

The OPTIS integrated system (St. Jude Medical) is a new technology allowing the online co-registration of optical coherence tomography (OCT) images with the angiogram in the catheterization laboratory. Additionally, 3D navigation can be performed. This integration of OCT information on an angiographic roadmap could find broad application in the characterization of substrates causing acute coronary syndromes with normal or near-normal coronary arteries. The utility of OCT with co-registration for the guidance of percutaneous coronary intervention could be considerable in the management of patients with acute coronary syndromes...

A 53-year-old man underwent percutaneous coronary intervention of a chronic total occlusion of the circumflex artery. A mini-crush stent technique with two drug-eluting stents was performed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of coronary artery aneurysm affecting a bifurcated chronic total occlusion treated with a two-stent technique.

The clinical course of coronary artery aneurysms after drug-eluting stent implantation is variable. Some aneurysms naturally resolve, but some can lead to complications such as stent thrombosis. In order to avoid such complications, it is important to reduce as much as possible the chance of exposing causal factors, and intravascular imaging may be needed in order to accurately assess the results of stent deployment and apposition. In the presented case, intravascular imaging was shown to be useful in accurately assessing the results of bioresorbable stent deployment and apposition...

We herein report the case of an ST-elevation myocardial infarction due to bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BRS) failure. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed the exact mechanism of late BRS stent thrombosis due to an acquired coronary aneurysm related to BRS. A drug eluting OCT-guided stenting over a failed BRS in the context of an acute coronary syndrome, with the simultaneous presence of a BRS thrombosis and coronary artery aneurysm, proved to be effective.

AIMS: Correct sizing of the ostium is a crucial step in left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion procedures. However, unfavorable anatomy of the ostium often complicates the assessment of the true ostium diameter. We hypothesized that area-derived diameter (ADD) and perimeter-derived diameter (PDD) from three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiogram (3D-TEE) can facilitate this step of the procedure as compared with two-dimensional (2D) measurements. METHODS AND RESULTS: For 55 patients within the ALSTER-LAA registry, retrospective analysis of PDD and ADD was correlated with 2D measurements used during the procedure to ascertain correct size of the Watchman device (Boston Scientific)...

Six consecutive patients (3 men; mean age, 63 ± 14 years; age range, 38-81 years) with infrarenal abdominal aortic stenosis underwent unilateral or bilateral transradial approach for stenting of the aortic lesion. In 4 cases, isolated aortic stenting was performed through single transradial approach (in 2 cases with precise alignment to the proximal end of previously deployed iliac stents), whereas in the other 2 cases bilateral transradial approach was used for aortic stenting followed by bilateral stenting of the proximal iliac arteries...

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...

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...
