Rotational angiography (RA) has proven to be an excellent method for evaluating congenital disease (CHD) in the cardiac cath lab, permitting acquisition of 3D datasets with superior spatial resolution. This technique has not been routinely implemented for 3D printing in CHD. We describe our case series of models printed from RA and validate our technique. All patients with models printed from RA were selected. RA acquisitions from a Toshiba Infinix-I system were postprocessed and printed with a Stratasys Eden 260...

REVIEW
Reza Fardid, Fatemeh Mirzadeh, Hadi Rezaei
In recent years, using the ionizing radiation in the interventional cardiology has been increased; this is because of the rapid growth of the number of interventional procedures and the high levels of radiation dose in these examinations. Therefore, it is necessary to develop procedures for managing the use of fluoroscopy radiation to ensure that patients and personnel are not exposed to excessive levels of radiation. It seems that by the new generation devices of fluoroscopy that are equipped with a real dosimeters or dose area product (DAP)-meter which are able to record the produced dose rate in the area of patient's body in each procedure, it is possible to calculate the cardiologist dose with simulation...

: Since Heberden's first description, stable angina has represented a challenge for the clinicians. Even the most recent guidelines seem ineffective to correctly identify patients who should be sent to cath labs. Still too many patients who undergo coronary angiography are found not to have significant lesions; moreover, its extensive use as the first diagnostic test leads to revascularizations with uncertain appropriateness and prognostic significance. These considerations underline the importance of noninvasive testing before sending patients to invasive coronary angiography...

The incidence of Cardiac (Cardio-Pulmonary) Arrest (CA) in the Catheterization Laboratory is not common. However, not only does it happen occasionally but its frequency tends to increase due to the increase in the overall number and complexity of interventions performed by interventional cardiologists. Therefore, certified knowledge and application of the ALS (Advanced Life Support) protocols by trained Catheterization Laboratory staff is imperative in many countries, by local Hospital standards and also by Law...

: Supportive care for pain relief and back discomfort during electrophysiology interventions is usually needed in the electrophysiology lab, especially in long-lasting procedures like atrial fibrillation ablation. Although this is usually achieved with conventional pharmacologic anesthesia, hypnosis has recently aroused interest as a reliable tool to complement and possibly enhance conscious sedation. We collected five case of percutaneous arrhythmia ablation in which, after informed consent, hypnosis was performed by nurse anesthetists in the cath lab...

The presence of either diabetes mellitus (DM) or chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with a worse prognosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). It is also known that outcomes in patients treated with insulin (insulin requiring type 2 diabetes mellitus [ITDM]) are worse than those who are not on insulin (non-insulin type 2 diabetes mellitus [NITDM]). We sought to compare long-term outcomes in patients who underwent PCI with varying severity of DM with and without CKD. We retrospectively studied 17,898 patients who underwent PCI from January 2009 to December 2014 in the Mount Sinai Cath Lab...

BACKGROUND: Delays in attending to ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are indicators or markers of quality of health services. Several records suggest gender disparity in cardiac care as a contributor to the increased mortality among women. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled all consecutive STEMI patients who were transferred to our hospital from January through December 2015. The following variables were analyzed: Symptom-to-Door Time (SDT); Time to First ECG (TECG); Transfer Time to Referring Center (TTRC); and Door-to-Cath lab time (DCT)...

Toby Rogers, Lowell F Satler
A novel device that diverts a proportion of contrast injected by hand through the manifold can potentially reduce volume of contrast delivered to the patient by almost 50% to reduce risk of contrast-induced nephropathy. Another simple solution to reducing contrast volume is to limit the number of angiographic views and cine runs acquired. A conscious effort by the angiographer to limit the contrast volume to less than the eGFR should be considered.

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to detect if pre-procedure vascular ultrasound scanning (VUS) of radial arteries (RAs) can increase the radial access success (RAS) rate and/or reduce the vascular access time (VAT), by guiding the choice of the proper access site for repeated trans-radial interventions (TRIs). BACKGROUND: Currently, repeated-TRIs are encountered more frequently in most of the cath. labs. However, structural changes of the RAs after TRA may hinder it is usage for repeated-TRI...

Presentamos el caso de un varón joven con antecedente de tromboembolia venosa que se presentó en esta ocasión por dolor precordial, con elevación del ST en el electrocardiograma. Fue llevado a sala de angiografía para realizar angioplastia primaria y se observó una oclusión total ostial de la descendente anterior. Se realizó aspiración manual del trombo.

AIMS: Postdeployment mutual orientation between the disk and the lobe in patients undergoing left atrial appendage closure with Amplatzer cardiac plug/Amulet device might impact on the risk of residual leak during follow-up. Thus, we evaluated in an exploratory, pilot study whether the degree of intradevice misalignment, measured by cardiac computed tomography (CT), discriminates the occurrence of peridevice leak in those patients. METHODS: All patients (N = 15) undergoing percutaneous left atrial appendage closure with those specific devices between April 2013 and January 2015 were prospectively included...

BACKGROUND: Pseudoaneurysms as result of orthopaedic injuries are a known clinical entity. But with increase in operative interventions and use of implants, its incidence is bound to increase. It is important to detect this complication at the earliest to avoid any limb or life threatening problems. Selective angiography is a minimally invasive technique to pin point the diagnosis and at the same time allow for therapeutic embolization/stenting of the pseudo aneurysm. METHODS: A retrospective review of inpatients from January 2007 to January 2013 requiring transarterial embolization/stenting for pseudoaneurysm in the limbs...

Transcutaneous or transvenous pacing of the right ventricle is performed as a routine practice for patients received with symptomatic bradycardia or complete heart block with relative ease in cath lab. However, more and more patients are received with multiple comorbidities, critical condition, and difficult vascular access. In this article, we describe a patient with difficult venous access with tricuspid regurgitation and displaced the right ventricular pacemaker temporary lead undergoing coronary angiography who was managed with emergent nonconventional left ventricular pacing...

BACKGROUND: Clinical outcome registries are an increasingly vital component of ensuring quality and safety of patient care. However, Australian hospitals rarely have additional resources or the capacity to fund the additional staff time to complete the task of data collection and entry. At the same time, registry funding models do not support staff for the collection of data at the site but are directed towards the central registry tasks of data reporting, managing and quality monitoring...

Telemedicine has deeply innovated the field of emergency cardiology, particularly the treatment of acute myocardial infarction. The ability to record an ECG in the early prehospital phase, thus avoiding any delay in diagnosing myocardial infarction with direct transfer to the cath-lab for primary angioplasty, has proven to significantly reduce treatment times and mortality. This consensus document aims to analyse the available evidence and organizational models based on a support by telemedicine, focusing on technical requirements, education, and legal aspects...

Based on a systematic review and meta-analysis of 8 studies, involving 2,559 subjects, both interventional cardiologists (3.21) and cardiac cath lab staff (2.76) had a significantly higher relative risk of posterior lens opacity than the control group. It is essential to provide "best practice" in radiation dose management and lead shielding in the cath lab with the standard "As Low As Reasonably Achievable"! There is a clear need for better data to quantitate the radiation risk and to design innovative strategies to decrease that risk...
