INTRODUCTION: A primary aortoenteric fistula (PAEF) is a communication between aorta and the gastrointestinal tract. It is a rare condition that is difficult to diagnose and therefore associated with a high mortality. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report a rare case of a 66-year old man with an unstable bleeding PAEF. A salvage procedure was performed with a covered stent. Later, a sigmoidectomy was performed with resection of the fistula. Postoperatively, the patient suffered an infection that was treated well with antibiotics and he was discharged two weeks later with complete resolution of the fistula...

The fundamental technique of performing percutaneous cardiovascular (CV) interventions has remained unchanged and requires operators to wear heavy lead aprons to minimize exposure to ionizing radiation. Robotic technology is now being utilized in interventional cardiology partially as a direct result of the increasing appreciation of the long-term occupational hazards of the field. This review was undertaken to report the clinical outcomes of percutaneous robotic coronary and peripheral vascular interventions...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) and small vessel (SV) disease are two major predictors of adverse outcome in patients treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), even when last generation metallic drug-eluting stents (DES) are used. Bioresorbable scaffold (BRS) technology has been recently developed to overcome the disadvantages of metallic DES due to their permanent struts. Through the resorption process, BRS may provide a vascular restoration that appears very attractive especially when distal or diffusely diseased coronary segments are involved, as in diabetic patients and SV disease...

REVIEW
Bernardo Cortese, Mostafa Elwany
Bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) has emerged as a new technology aiming at overcoming some drawbacks of the conventional metallic stent. In spite of the initial promising results, this technology stumbled upon numerous challenges, which were revealed in the real world studies. Thanks to real world trials and registries findings, our knowledge about the BVS has grown over time, thus we have understood on BVS behavior in various settings and formulated better implantation techniques. In this article, we will review the incidence of BVS failure in real world studies, its different etiologies and management strategies...

OBJECTIVE: Vascular calcifications (VCs) may be a prognostic factor for outcome after endovascular treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Semi-quantitative analysis with X-ray imaging is the main limiting factor for assessing VCs. The aim of the present study was to find a correlation between the amount of VC with a CT scan quantification and mid-term results of endovascular treatment of TASC C/D femoropopliteal (FP) lesions. METHODS: Patients belonging to two previously published registries (STELLA and STELLA PTX) and who underwent a preoperative CT scan were retrospectively included in the study...

BACKGROUND: The majority of iliac venous obstructions occur on the left side, and endovascular therapy has become the first line treatment for this condition. A left common iliac venous stent will protrude into the inferior vena cava (IVC) to some extent, thereby covering the contralateral common iliac vein (CIV) outflow. This may increase the risk of thrombosis of the contralateral iliac vein. The aim of this paper was to determine the rate of, and factors associated with, contralateral lower limb venous thrombosis after stenting, and to evaluate the results of salvage revascularisation...

OBJECTIVES: Compared with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) appears to be a promising revascularization strategy for multivessel coronary disease. Trials comparing these treatments have not used second-generation drug-eluting stents (2nd DES). We conducted a retrospective evaluation of both treatments using a propensity score-matched analysis (PSMA). METHODS: A total of 537 patients with three-vessel with/without left-main-trunk coronary artery disease underwent CABG (n = 239) or primary PCI using 2nd DES (298) at a single institution...

In drug eluting stents the cytostatic drugs Sirolimus or Tacrolimus are used to inhibit blood vessel restenosis by limiting the proliferation of smooth muscle cells. However, the cytostatic activity of both drugs was shown to be not cell specific and could also affect the stent endothelialisation, respectively. Currently, only limited in vitro data are available about the impact of Sirolimus and Tacrolimus on endothelial cell proliferation over a broad concentration range. To answer this question the following study was performed...
