This meta-analysis compared IVUS-guided with angiography-guided PCI to determine the effect of IVUS on the mortality in patients with LM CAD. Current guidelines recommend intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with left main coronary artery disease (LM CAD; Class IIa, level of evidence B). A systematic search of the MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases was conducted to identify randomized or non-randomized studies comparing IVUS-guided PCI with angiography-guided PCI in LM CAD...

OBJECTIVES: We designed a pilot study to evaluate safety and feasibility of an inexpensive and simple approach to intracoronary hemodilution during primary angioplasty (PPCI) to reduce reperfusion injury. INTRODUCTION: Early revascularization in acute myocardial infarction decreases infarct size and improves outcomes. However, abrupt restoration of coronary flow results in myocardial reperfusion injury and increased final infarct size. Dilution of coronary blood during revascularization may help reduce this damage...

Massive hemoptysis is a stressful and life-threatening event that can occur in lung cancer patients. The management of this event is usually challenging, and can involve surgery, embolization, and bronchoscopy. Unfortunately, while surgery can offer a definitive solution to hemoptysis, lung cancer patients are often excluded from this approach. On the other hand, bronchial arterial embolization rarely results in long-term control of bleeding. Endoscopy allows a skilled physician to perform mechanical tamponade or laser photocoagulation of bleeding lesions and preserve the main airways...

Tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve syndrome (TOF/APV) is a rare congenital malformation. Although pulmonary artery (PA) anomalies have been observed in TOF, its association with disconnected PA is extremely rare. We report successful stenting of the disconnected left PA in a 3-year-old boy with TOF/APV followed by surgical reimplantation. The significance of this transcatheter intervention for guidance during surgery and the importance of visualizing a ductal stump on angiography as an indicator of disconnected PA are discussed...

AIMS: Early infarct-related artery patency has been associated with improved outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention. However, it is unknown whether this relationship persists in contemporary practice with pre-hospital initiation of treatment, use of novel P2Y12 inhibitors and frequent use of drug-eluting stents. The purpose of the study was to determine the impact of early infarct-related artery patency on outcomes in the contemporary EUROMAX trial...

Ruptured intracranial vertebral artery dissection is a cause of non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage. Urgent intervention should be considered to prevent fatal rebleeding. Endovascular parent artery occlusion, which is the initial treatment of choice, is not suitable for patients with a hypoplastic or occlusive contralateral vertebral artery. We report a case of ruptured vertebral artery dissection, which was successfully treated with double overlapping stent-assisted coiling.

REVIEW
Jos C van den Berg
The endovascular treatment of atherosclerotic disease of the infra-inguinal arteries has changed significantly over the last decades. In an attempt to overcome the high restenosis rates that characterize plain balloon angioplasty and stenting using bare mate stents drug-eluting balloon technology has been applied in the treatment of lesions of the superficial femoral and popliteal artery. This paper will give an overview of the rationale and the technology of drug-eluting balloons and will review currently available data from registries and randomized controlled trials...

BACKGROUND: Radiolabeled RGD peptides detect αvβ3 integrin expression associated with angiogenesis and extracellular matrix remodeling after myocardial infarction. We studied whether cardiac positron emission tomography (PET) with [(68)Ga]NODAGA-RGD detects increased αvβ3 integrin expression after induction of flow-limiting coronary stenosis in pigs, and whether αvβ3 integrin is expressed in viable ischemic or injured myocardium. METHODS: We studied 8 Finnish landrace pigs 13 ± 4 days after percutaneous implantation of a bottleneck stent in the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery...

Embolic events from infective endocarditis can cause acute coronary syndrome. Mortality rate is high and optimal management might be different from those chosen in setting of classic atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. We present a case of 56-year-old male who had received 5 weeks of antibiotics for aortic valve endocarditis and developed acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction in hospital settings. Interestingly, patient had recent left heart catheterization that was normal. This was recognized as embolic event from sterile vegetation...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The introduction of stent retrievers allows for a complete extraction and histological analysis of human thrombi. Ischemic stroke is a major health issue, and differentiation of underlying causes is highly relevant to prevent recurrent stroke. Therefore, histopathologic analysis of the embolic clots after removal may provide valuable information about underlying pathologies. This study analyzes histological clot composition and aims to identify specific patterns that might help to distinguish causes of ischemic stroke...
