OBJECTIVES: We sought to compare treatment strategies in a Bayesian network meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. BACKGROUND: Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a prevalent morbidity that is treated with various strategies. METHODS: We performed a MEDLINE search for randomized studies comparing at least 2 treatment strategies, including bypass surgery, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloons, stents, covered stents, drug-eluting stents (DES), and drug-coated balloons (DCB), in patients with native femoro-popliteal disease...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate the independent predictive value of left main disease (LMD) and/or three-vessel disease (LMD/3VD) in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients. BACKGROUND: Patients with acute coronary syndrome resulting from LMD and/or three-vessel disease (LMD/3VD) are at the highest risk of adverse cardiovascular events. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been proposed as a marker of cardiovascular risk, but the prognostic value of NLR in patients with LMD/3VD who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is not clearly defined...

Mitral paravalvular leak (PVL) remains a well-known complication after mitral valve replacement. Since the first report over 25 years ago, several catheter-based PVL closure techniques have been described. Most of these comprise of either an antegrade transseptal approach, or a retrograde transaortic or transapical approach. We herein report a novel percutaneous mitral PVL closure technique that was safely and successfully performed after failed attempt using a conventional antegrade approach.

BACKGROUND: Transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) was superior to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in the placement of aortic transcatheter valves (PARTNER) 2A trial (P2). The generalizability of the trial results to the broader population of patients with intermediate surgical risk remains unknown. OBJECTIVE: To compare the outcomes of SAVR and TAVR among patients with intermediate surgical risk treated in the VA Healthcare System. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the clinical characteristics and outcomes on all SAVR (1987-2014) and TAVR procedures (2015-2017) performed at the Minneapolis VA Healthcare System...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the outcomes of subadventitial stenting (SS) around occluded stents for recanalizing in-stent chronic total occlusions (IS-CTOs). BACKGROUND: There is little evidence on the outcomes of SS for IS-CTO. METHODS: We examined the outcomes of SS for IS-CTO PCI at 14 centers between July 2011 and June 2017, and compared them to historical controls recanalized using within-stent stenting (WSS). Target-vessel failure (TVF) on follow-up was the endpoint of this study, and was defined as a composite of cardiac death, target-vessel myocardial infarction, and target-vessel revascularization...

Robotic percutaneous coronary interventions have recently been introduced in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Robotics offers benefits of greater precision for stent placement and occupational hazard protection for operators and staff. First generation systems were able to advance and retract coronary wires, balloons, and stents, but did not have guide control functions. The second-generation robotic system (CorPath GRX) has an active guide management function offering the ability to move guide catheters...

A 61-year-old man with a history of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the mid right coronary artery (RCA) with a drug eluting stent (DES), presented with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. Coronary angiography demonstrated complex disease of the distal RCA as well as in-stent stenosis of the previously placed mid RCA stent. The patient underwent bifurcation PCI of the distal RCA followed by attempted intervention with a DES on the mid RCA lesion. The stent could not cross the lesion and eventually became dissociated from its delivery system...
