AIMS: Coronary revascularization based upon physiological evaluation of lesions improves clinical outcomes. Angiographic or visual stenosis assessment alone is insufficient in predicting hemodynamic stenosis severity by Fractional Flow reserve (FFR) and therefore cannot be used to guide revascularization, particularly in the lesion subset (<70%). Accordingly, we sought to identify independent determinants of angiographic intermediate lesions with hemodynamic significance. METHODS AND RESULTS: We assessed consecutive intermediate lesions for patients from January 2014-April 2015 at our institution...

AIMS: The APPOSITION III registry evaluated the feasibility and performance of the STENTYS self- apposing stent in a ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) population. This novel self- apposing stent device lowers stent strut malapposition rates and therefore bears the potential to prevent stent undersizing during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in STEMI patients. Up to date, no long-term data is available using this device in the setting of STEMI. We aimed to evaluate long-term clinical outcomes of the APPOSITION III registry...

Determining the optimal treatment strategy for revascularization of coronary artery stenosis involves the use of fractional flow reserve (FFR). To improve the low clinical uptake of physiological lesion assessment to guide revascularization, the instantaneous wave-free period (iFR) was proposed as a simpler alternative to FFR that does not require adenosine administration. iFR is calculated as the ratio of blood pressure distal and proximal to a coronary artery stenosis during the diastolic wave- free period...

AIMS: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of severe coronary artery calcification (CAC) is challenging. The ORBIT II study demonstrated the safety and efficacy of orbital atherectomy (OA) in patients with severe CAC. Microparticulate liberated during OA may disturb coronary microcirculation. We evaluated OA treatment in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients were grouped by left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF): 26-40% (n=33), 41-50% (n=90), and >50% (n=314)...

AIMS: Significant functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) in elderly heart-failure patients is increasingly being treated by MitraClip implantation. We sought to assess the prognostic implications of the intraprocedural assessment of vena contracta area (VCA) after MitraClip therapy in such patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: MitraClip therapy with intraprocedural assessment of VCA was performed in 97 heart-failure patients (74±10 years; 66 men; left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF] 31±12%; 93 patients in New York Heart Association [NYHA] functional class III [n=59] or IV [n=34]; 86 patients with FMR severity 3+ [n=65] or 4+ [n=21])...

AIMS: Success of drug-coated balloon therapy might be compromised by intraprocedural particulate embolization of matrix coating, which may cause downstream microvascular obstruction. We aimed to investigate whether drug-coated balloon therapy was associated with an increase in markers of myocardial necrosis compared with drug-eluting stents or plain balloon angioplasty. METHODS AND RESULTS: In the ISAR DESIRE 3 trial, patients with limus-eluting stent restenosis were randomized to treatment with a paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB), paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES) or balloon angioplasty (BA)...
