AIMS: The clinical performance of the SYNERGY drug-eluting stent (DES) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) has not been investigated in detail. We sought to report on the outcomes after SYNERGY DES (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA) implantation in patients with MI undergoing percutaneous revascularisation (PCI). METHODS AND RESULTS: We included all consecutive patients with MI undergoing PCI with the SYNERGY DES and newer-generation DES (n-DES group) in Sweden...

BACKGROUND : There are no data on how fractional flow reserve (FFR) and instantaneous wave-free ratio (iFR) are associated with the placebo-controlled efficacy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in stable single-vessel coronary artery disease. METHODS : We report the association between prerandomization invasive physiology within ORBITA (Objective Randomised Blinded Investigation With Optimal Medical Therapy of Angioplasty in Stable Angina), a placebo-controlled trial of patients who have stable angina with angiographically severe single-vessel coronary disease clinically eligible for PCI...

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting is becoming increasingly the first line treatment for patients with both claudication and critical limb ischaemia instead of surgery, with the aim of returning the patient's quality of life in the former and preventing amputation. Drug eluting technologies have seen a large surge in popularity in recent years, and significant patient benefits have been seen with the use of drug eluting stents and balloons over the use of plain balloon angioplasty. Unfortunately in many patients with arterial disease there is significant vessel wall calcification - this can theoretically be a barrier to drug delivery, and can also be a contributing factor to flow limiting dissection and the subsequent need for bail out stenting...

The number of patients in dialysis increases every year. In this review, we will evaluate the role of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) according to patency of arteriovenous fistula and grafts. The main indication of PΤΑ is stenosis > 50% or obstruction of the vascular lumen of an arteriovenous fistula and graft. It is usually performed under local anesthesia. The infection rate is as low as the number of complications. Fistula can be used in dialysis in the same day without the need for a central venous catheter...

BACKGROUND Aortic occlusion, whether acute or subacute, is a rare but very serious entity with disastrous consequences if not treated in a timely fashion. Rapid diagnosis is crucial in this setting. In surgically treated patients there is a high degree of mortality and morbidity; therefore, percutaneous revascularization, whenever possible and independent of the available techniques, is much more desirable. CASE REPORT A 62-year-old woman with a history of diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and peripheral vascular disease, with previous femoral-femoral bypass for right common iliac artery occlusion, and with recent conventional angiography showing near occlusion of the ostial left common iliac artery (the donor vessel for the previous bypass), was referred to our hospital for conventional angioplasty...

Background: Patients with a diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) may face important decisions regarding treatment options, with the "right choice" depending on the relative weights of risks and benefits. Studies performed as discrete choice experiments are used to estimate these weights, and attribute selection is an essential step in the design of these studies. Attributes not included in the design cannot be analyzed. In this study, we aimed to elicit, rank, and rate attributes that may be considered important to patients and physicians who must choose between angioplasty and surgery for coronary revascularization...

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare but life-threatening disease. If not treated promptly, it is almost always lethal of progressive liver failure, severe nutritional depletion, and renal failure at the late stage. We report the successful treatment of a 5-year-old boy with BCS due to a stenosis of the IVC with a 26-year follow-up. We performed percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), which resulted in a great improvement of BCS, and the disappearance of ascites. Restenosis occurred at 25 years after the initial angioplasty, for which balloon angioplasty was repeatedly performed...

INTRODUCTION: Hospital readmissions are not only associated with increased mortality, morbidity and costs but also, with current healthcare reform, tied to significant financial and administrative penalties. Some studies show that patients undergoing vascular surgery may have higher than average readmission rates. The recently released Nationwide Readmission Database (NRD) is the most comprehensive national source of readmission data, gathering discharge information from 22 geographically dispersed states, accounting for 51...

BACKGROUND: Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) represent a context of higher thrombotic risk, where larger advantages have been achieved by the administration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). However, the indication of 1 year DAPT after coronary angioplasty for ACS has been supported by an outdated randomized trial (PCI-CURE). In addition, the initial fear of late thrombotic events emerged with first generation drug-eluting stents (DES), that suggested the need of a prolonged DAPT prescription, has been completely overcome by the recent technological evolution of DES, that have shown faster re-endothelization and lower rates of late thrombotic complications...

AIMS: We evaluated the effectiveness of excimer laser coronary angioplasty (ELCA) to treat in-stent restenosis (ISR) due to peri-stent calcium-related stent under-expansion as assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 81 patients (81 lesions with ISR, stent under-expansion, and peri-stent calcium >90°) who underwent OCT imaging both pre- and post-percutaneous coronary intervention and compared lesions treated with ELCA (n=23) vs without ELCA (n=58)...

Restenosis caused by neointimal hyperplasia significantly decreases long-term efficacy of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), stenting, and by-pass surgery for managing coronary and peripheral arterial diseases. A major cause of pathological neointima formation is abnormal vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation and migration. Notoginsenoside R1 (NGR1) is a novel saponin that is derived from Panax notoginseng and has reported cardioprotective, neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory effects...

Background: Recently, a simple parameter calculated from the brachial pressure waveform recorded using an oscillometric device (arterial velocity pulse index [AVI]: ratio of the forward/reflected pressure wave amplitudes) has become available to assess the pathophysiological abnormalities associated with vascular damage. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) represents one of the disease entities associated with the advanced stages of atherosclerotic vascular damage. The present study was conducted to examine whether an increase in the AVI might be influenced by the presence of PAD...

BACKGROUND: Data regarding transsplenic portal venous access for diagnostic imaging and endovascular intervention in children are limited, possibly due to concerns regarding high bleeding risks and resultant underutilization. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the safety and utility of transsplenic splenoportography and portal venous interventions in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of all pediatric patients undergoing percutaneous transsplenic portal venous access and intervention at two large tertiary pediatric institutions between January 2012 and April 2017 was performed...

BACKGROUND: In young patients with native aortic coarctation (CoA), the management of choice is surgery. However, in re-coarctation (re-CoA) surgery is associated with increased morbidity and even mortality. Some children with native CoA present relative contraindications for surgery. METHODS: From 2006 to 2017, thirty-four patients (male n = 20; 59%) from two centres with re-CoA (31) and native CoA (3) were managed by stent implantation with premounted balloon expandable stents...

PURPOSE: To compare the drug effect in treated vessels and downstream effects in distal skeletal muscle of drug-coated balloons (DCBs) and drug-eluting stents (DESs) in a healthy preclinical swine model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Four groups of treated iliofemoral arteries (percutaneous transluminal angioplasty [PTA]+DES, DCB+DES, DCB+bare metal stent [BMS], and DCB alone) of 12 healthy swine were assessed, with euthanasia at 30 days. Biological drug effect was evaluated using smooth muscle cell (SMC) loss score according to both depth and circumference as well a neointimal fibrin and medial proteoglycan scores which were compared between the 4 groups...

Introduction: Most established risk factors after rotational atherectomy (RA) of heavily fibro-calcified lesions are associated with patients' general risk and clinical related factors and are not specific for either coronary and culprit lesion anatomy or the RA procedure. Aim: To assess novel predictors of poor outcome after percutaneous coronary intervention using RA in an all-comers population. Material and methods: A total of 207 consecutive patients after RA were included in a single-center observational study...

The femoropopliteal artery is one of the commonest sites of involvement in peripheral artery disease (PAD) leading to intermittent claudication and/or critical limb ischemia. Endovascular therapy for superficial femoral artery (SFA) disease has been recognized as a safe and efficient therapy and is recommended by current guidelines as the first-line approach. Although the widespread use of new-generation, self-expanding, nitinol stents in SFA stenosis has reduced the shortcomings associated with plain old balloon angioplasty (POBA), lumen renarrowing at the stented (in-stent restenosis - ISR) level still represents a relevant clinical problem, because of higher risk of recurrent ISR, occlusion and surgical revascularization compared to de-novo lesions...

The short- and long-term success of intravascular stents depends on a proper re-endothelialisation after the intervention-induced endothelial denudation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential of in vivo molecular imaging of glutamate carboxypeptidase II (GCPII; identical with prostate-specific membrane antigen PSMA) expression as a marker of re-endothelialisation. Fifteen Sprague Dawley rats underwent unilateral balloon angioplasty of the common carotid artery (CCA). Positron emission tomography (PET) using the GCPII-targeting tracer [18 F]DCFPyL was performed after 5-21 days (scan 60-120 min post injection)...

Endovascular intervention is a mainstay treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD) in addition to aggressive risk factor modification and exercise programs in patients with favorable anatomy or in those who are considered too high risk for surgical intervention. Treatment with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and bare metal stents (BMS) has been limited by high rates of in-stent restenosis (ISR) requiring repeat revascularization. Drug-eluting stents (DES), developed and designed to reduce ISR, offer a promising solution to the current challenges in endovascular management of PAD...
