OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to examine the independent associations between actionable bleeding (AB) and coronary thrombotic events (CTE) on mortality risk after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND: The independent impact of AB and CTE on mortality risk after PCI remains poorly characterized. METHODS: A post hoc analysis was conducted of the PARIS (Patterns of Non-Adherence to Dual Antiplatelet Therapy in Stented Patients) registry, a real-world cohort of 5,018 patients undergoing PCI with stent implantation...

BACKGROUND: The preliminary results of a prospective consecutive series of 20 patients who underwent Enterprise-assisted recanalization for acute ischemic stroke were recently reported. Recanalization to thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) grade 2 (n = 6) or 3 (n = 12) flow was achieved in 18 patients (90% revascularization rate). Good outcome (modified Rankin Scale [mRS] score of ≤2) was obtained in 10 patients (50%) at 30 days. Here, we report the 2-year clinical follow-up data for patients enrolled in that prospective study...

BACKGROUND: Despite recent advances in stent design and constantly improving protective pharmacological strategies, complications and adverse events following percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) are still major factors influencing morbidity and mortality. Therefore, predicting secondary vascular occlusions represents an unmet medical need. OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to triage clinical and laboratory predictors of major adverse clinical events (MACE) following coronary stenting...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate initial and long term results of coronary perforation treatment with pericardial covered stent. BACKGROUND: Iatrogenic coronary perforation is a rare life threatening complication of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) occurring in 0.1-0.8% of cases. Covered stents are the mainstay of therapy for coronary perforation. However, polytetrafluoroethylene covered stents are bulky with limited flexibility and thus may not be easy to deliver in difficult anatomy...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare 3 year incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) between bare metal stents (BMS) and drug-eluting stents (DES) in large coronary arteries with tubular and diffuse lesions. METHODS: Seven hundred forty-five consecutive patients (894 lesions) who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on large coronary arteries (3.0, 3.5 and 4 mm) with tubular (10-20 mm length) or diffuse (>20 mm) lesions using BMS or DES at Ekbatan University Hospital, Hamadan, Iran between October 2009 and September 2012 were included...

The new generation drug eluting stents have improved the results of coronary angioplasty by reducing the rate of instent restenosis and stent thrombosis compared to earlier devices, due to the thinner stent struts and improved or bioresorbable polymers. But permanent metallic stent struts may have some long term harmful effects such as inducing late thrombosis, neoatherosclerosis, restenosis and also impairing vasomotion and endothelial function. This was the rationale for introducing bioresorbable stents which offer radial support to the artery during the period needed (scaffolding) and then disappear, (liberating the vessels and restoring its physiological vasomotion...

Since Gruentizg's first percutaneous transluminal ballon angioplasty in 1977 in Zurich, percuta. neous coronary intervention evolved significantly in order to overcome the numerous associated complications of each technique. Bare-metal stents (BMS) made their initial appearance followed by three generations of drug-eluting stents (DES). The use of bioabsorbable vascular scaffold stents (BVS) has become more frequent creating a temporary scaffold allowing healing of the endothelium within 2 years. In this article, we discuss the nomenclature of the main intravascular complications linked to percuta...

Coronary stent fracture is a known complication of coronary arterial stent placements. Multiple long-term risks are also associated with drug eluting stents. 64-slice multidetector CT (MDCT) coronary angiography has been shown to detect poststent complications such as instent stenosis, thrombosis, stent migration and stent fractures. We report a case of stent fracture in a patient who underwent RCA stenting with associated RCA perforation and almost complete thrombosis of the RCA and peristent fibrinoid collection...

Very late stent thrombosis is an uncommon event following implantation with bare metal stents (BMS) in coronary arteries. Long term follow up studies have shown that a small number of BMS develop very late thrombosis following years of stability. Atherosclerotic transformation of neointimal tissue is increasingly being recognised as the cause of these adverse events. A 49 year-old male presented with acute inferior wall myocardial infarction resulting from thrombosis of the BMS implanted in his right coronary artery five years earlier...

Coronary angioplasty has undergone several technological revolutions: starting with balloon angioplasty, then with bare metal stent and finally with drug eluting stent (DES), this technique is now mature. However, once we thought the problem of instent restenosis solved with DES, new concerns arise with late and very late stent thrombosis. Should we therefore proscribe DES? How long should be the duration of dual antiplatelet therapy? And how should we manage the patients who need a surgery and are at high risk of bleeding? Are bioresorbable stents the final solution with their initial mechanical properties, then with their drug eluting effect against intra-stent restenosis, and finally with their complete resorption which leaves the artery free of any foreign material?...

Acute thromboembolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery is a rare and often fatal condition in which surgery represents the golden standard in therapy. We present a case in which a patient was treated with covered stent implantation for acute bleeding from the superior mesenteric artery following pancreatic resection, radiation, and embolization of a hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm. Some weeks later clinical signs were suggestive of acute thromboembolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery and digital subtraction angiography showed occlusion of the previously implanted covered stents...

The endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) capture stent is an innovative device that makes use of the ability of bone marrow-derived EPCs to migrate to injured arterial segments to facilitate healing. The EPC antibody surface, consisting of a covalently coupled polysaccharide intermediate coating with anti-human CD34 antibodies, is attached to a stainless steel stent. Upon stent placement, the anti-human CD34 antibodies will attract circulating EPCs, which are expected to develop into mature functional endothelium...

BACKGROUND: Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a reasonable alternative to carotid endarterectomy (CEA), especially in patients at high risk for surgery. Carotid artery thrombosis of the treated segment is a rare, early but potentially devastating complication of this endovascular procedure. The aim of this article is to identify and critically review cases of acute stent thrombosis reported in the literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Previous trials that compared CEA with CAS were rather heterogeneous and not large enough to allow reliable conclusions...

We present a 61-year-old female with an unruptured intracranial aneurysm on the left superior hypophyseal artery. The patient was treated with endovascular management, stent-assisted coil embolization. Multiple embolic infarction and total occlusion of the left internal carotid artery (ICA) was occurred one day later. At 14 days of heparinization, complete recanalization of the ICA and full recovery of neurologic symptoms were achieved. Stent-assisted coil embolization is not without risk of instent thrombosis and the subsequent embolism...

In-stent restenosis remains an important issue even in the drug-eluting stent (DES) era today. In recent years, drug-eluting balloons (DEB) have emerged as a potential alternative to the treatment of in-stent restenosis. Paclitaxel was identified as the primary drug for DEB because of its rapid uptake and prolonged retention. Non-stent-based local drug delivery using DEB maintains the antiproliferation properties of DES, but without the limitations of DES such as subacute stent thrombosis, stent fractures, prolonged antiplatelet therapy and more importantly, avoiding a "stent-in-a-stent" approach...

Although rarely reported, acute instent thrombosis can be life threatening, especially in cases where there are no ST segment changes. For this reason, careful history taking, follow-up, and prompt coronary angiography may be lifesaving. Herein, a case of acute stent thrombosis with no ST segment changes on electrocardiogram that was resolved with intracoronary tirofiban is presented.

BACKGROUND: We examined the long term clinical outcomes after administration of intravascular brachytherapy (IVBT) for instent restenosis (ISR) and de novo coronary artery lesions in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS AND MATERIALS: From May 2000 to August 2004, 129 symptomatic patients with ISR and de novo coronary artery lesions were treated with intravascular beta radiation after successful PCI. The primary end-point was major adverse cardiac event (MACE), i...

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent implantation has become the predominant revascularization therapy for coronary artery disease. However, stent thrombosis and instent restenosis remain 2 major complications. Limitations of stand-alone angiographic guidance play a significant role in the pathogenesis of these complications. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance intuitively offers the best chance of optimizing the acute procedural outcomes, which translates to lower incidences of thrombosis and restenosis...
