Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for anomalous right coronary artery (RCA), originating from the left coronary cusp is challenging, because of the difficulty in engaging the guiding catheter coaxially, and delivering balloons and stents. A 65-year-old man with effort angina underwent PCI for anomalous RCA. This report describes the method we used. Although, delivering the balloon was difficult in short of the guiding catheter's backup force, we finally succeeded by using one more guiding catheter and the balloon-anchored CoKatte ® , a novel, straight 4...

The dogma for optimal arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation is based on starting as distally as possible on the upper limb and progressing proximally. We herein present our findings of an AVF that is as distal as possible on the hand. To document primary patency rates of the distal-to-snuffbox AVF. A 10-year prospective study (2006-2016) involving 31 patients whose distal cephalic vein diameter was ≥3 mm with a normal Allen's test was conducted. Patients were excluded if the radial artery in the wrist was highly calcified, the cephalic vein did not dilate more than 3 mm with proximal compression, and there was previously failed AVF of the limb or previous trauma to the limb...

Simultaneous multivessel epicardial coronary artery thrombosis is an uncommon finding in acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). It generally leads to cardiogenic shock and sudden cardiac death in the hospital. We report a 42-year-old male patient presenting with acute anterior STEMI with triple coronary artery thrombosis. An emergency coronary angiogram showed total occlusion of the left anterior descending artery (LAD) with thrombus formation. At the same time, thrombus formations were also seen in the circumflex artery (CXA), the second obtuse marginal (OM2) branch, and the distal right coronary artery (RCA)...

Following heterotopic transplantation, the rat heart undergoes atrophy and exhibits delayed cardiac relaxation without any changes in contraction and systolic Ca 2+ transients. Furthermore, the sarcoplasmic reticular Ca 2+ uptake and release activities were reduced and Ca 2+ influx through L-type Ca 2+ channels was increased in the atrophied heart. Since Ca 2+ movements at sarcolemma are intimately involved in the regulation of intracellular Ca 2+ concentration, the present study was undertaken to test if sarcolemma plays any role to maintain cardiac function in the atrophied heart...

Given the high prevalence of chronic venous diseases (CVD), defining criteria to screen patients who are in need for intervention is attaining primacy. An important clinical criterion for treating CVD is incompetence of larger veins. We have assessed the association of size of afflicted veins with disease severity in patients with CVD to define an acceptable criterion to identify patients who need intervention. Demographic characteristics and risk factors were recorded from 6350 patients. Based on physical examination and venous duplex ultrasound study, patients were classified into clinical severity, etiology, anatomy, and pathophysiology (CEAP) classes and grouped according to the size of the veins which had varicosities...

REVIEW
Frank Manetta, Joshua Newman, Allan Mattia
The utility of Thoracic EndoVascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) continues to progress at a very rapid rate. Initially implemented for the treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysms, TEVAR has evolved to treat a variety of aortic pathologies and reduce overall morbidity and mortality rates compared with traditional open surgical repair. Given the rapidly evolving nature of endovascular thoracic intervention, we hereby briefly review the current literature on the evolving applications of TEVAR. TEVAR continues to rapidly evolve and is being applied to a growing number of aortic pathologies...

Background  Distal embolization is the detrimental factor in SVG intervention. There is no specific treatment for it except prevention. Guidelines have endorsed the use of embolic protection devices; however, their use is not without complications, and increases the procedural time and cost for the patient. The objective of this study is to analyze the procedural results and immediate outcome in de novo SVG stenting. Methods  A retrospective observational study of patients who have undergone SVG-percutaneous coronary intervention at our institute...

Repeat operations involving the aortic root, ascending aorta, and arch (proximal aorta) are technically challenging. These procedures are associated with higher operative mortality and morbidity. A dedicated surgical team with special skill set is essential to manage these complex patients. Redo root and proximal aortic procedures can be done with acceptable risk in most patients with attention to details involving the surgical procedure, patient selection, and perioperative management.

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is the most severe form of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) that may result in limb loss and even death; thus, the fast and proper treatment should be employed as earlier as possible to prevent these catastrophic consequences. Arterial revascularization is almost always an indispensable treatment option for CLI. Although both endovascular and surgical revascularization procedures have an important role, nowadays, the hybrid revascularization as a combination of these revascularization procedures has also gained increasing popularity in the treatment of patients with CLI...
