Vascular complications in the femoral artery puncture site are the most common complications of the coronary angiography. Femoral hematoma is the leading participant of the vascular complications. We investigated the femoral hematoma predictive value of angle of sheath to trochanter major in patients undergoing elective coronary procedures. In this prospective analysis, we evaluated the femoral hematoma predictive value of angle of sheath to trochanter major on 246 patients undergoing elective coronary procedures...

BACKGROUND: The red cell distribution width (RDW) is a numerical measurement of variability in the size of red blood cells. Many studies have shown that high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), has an anti-inflammatory effect. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the serum HDL-C level and RDW in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS: Patients who underwent coronary angiography were reviewed. Patients who had moderate or severe heart failure, moderate or severe renal failure, significant systemic disease, anemia, a blood transfusion within the last 3 months, or a hematologic disease, as well as those who were taking lipid-lowering medication, were excluded from the study...

BACKGROUND: Patients at high risk for developing post-procedural complications may receive iodixanol, an iso-osmolar contrast, during coronary angiography to minimize the risk of renal toxicity. For those who additionally require cardiac surgery, the wait-time between angiography and surgery may be a modifiable factor capable of mitigating poor surgical outcomes; however, there have been inconsistsent reports regarding the optimal wait-time. We sought to determine the effects of wait time between angiogram and cardiac surgery, as well as contrast induced acute injury (CI-AKI) on the development of major adverse renal and cardiac events (MARCE)...

Intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is commonly used for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI). The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in patients with CLI and to assess their outcomes. Between May 2013 and May 2014, a prospective and observational study was conducted with 107 patients admitted exclusively for CLI treatment. The main outcomes included hemodialysis independence (HI) and overall survival (OS), as assessed by Kaplan-Meier curves...

Background: It is uncertain whether we can predict contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) after CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA). This study compared the ability of a validated CIN prediction score with the Pulmonary Embolism Severity Index (PESI) in predicting CIN after CTPA. Methods: This cohort study involved critically ill adult patients who required a CTPA to exclude acute pulmonary embolism (PE). Patients with end-stage renal failure requiring dialysis were excluded...

Thoracic endovascular repair (TEVAR) is an effective treatment for type B aortic dissection (TBAD). Here, we evaluated the early-midterm effectiveness and safety of TEVAR for treating TBAD patients after renal transplantation. Six patients with TBAD treated with TEVAR after renal transplantation were recruited between February 2012 and December 2016. They were then followed up with clinical examinations and computed tomography angiography (CTA). TEVAR was successfully performed in all patients (100%), and the primary tear sites were well covered by stents with or without coverage of the left subclavian artery...

Background/Aims: Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a typically reversible type of acute renal failure that develops after exposure to contrast agents; underlying endothelial dysfunction is thought to be an important risk factor for CIN. Although the mechanism of coronary collateral circulation (CCC) is not fully understood, a pivotal role of the endothelium has been reported in many studies. The aim of this study was to investigate whether there is a relationship between CCC and CIN...

Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital heart disease usually diagnosed during the first months of life. Without surgical treatment, ALCAPA carries a high mortality risk, and disease presentation in adulthood is rare. We describe the diagnosis and management of patients presenting with ALCAPA in adulthood. This multicenter French nationwide retrospective study included adult patients diagnosed from 1980 to 2014. Eleven adult patients (mean age: 38 ± 17 years) were analyzed...

Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is the acute impairment of renal function further to the intravascular administration of iodinated contrast media, and occurs most frequently after coronary angiography, percutaneous coronary intervention, and contrast-enhanced computed tomography. CI-AKI has been associated with the development of acute renal failure, worsening of chronic kidney disease, requirement for dialysis, prolonged hospital stay, and higher mortality rates and health care costs. Recently, a number of studies suggested that contrast media exposure might not be the causative agent in the occurrence of acute kidney injury, particularly in stable patients who receive small to moderate amounts of contrast media...

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is a less invasive option for managing traumatic injuries of the descending aorta in polytraumatized patients. Concerns arise when treating young patients with TEVAR. A 22-year-old male was admitted to the emergency department following a high-impact road traffic collision. Whole-body computed tomography (CT) scan documented multiple injuries, including rupture of descending thoracic aorta just below the isthmus. There was no evidence of paraplegia or stroke. We decided to treat him in an endovascular fashion with a Zenith Cook (Cook Incorporated, Bloomington, IN) endograft...

Treatment delays in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are related to increased morbidity and mortality. Hence, identifying determinants of delay may help reduce time to treatment. Importantly, limited data suggest that there may be sex-related disparities in benchmark timelines. Although guidelines advocate the use of the first medical contact (FMC) rather than hospital admission as the moment from which delays to treatment should be monitored, the latter is still often used for quality purposes...

BACKGROUND: Renal artery stenosis (RAS) has a high prevalence in older patients, especially in the context of general atherosclerosis. It is frequently associated with resistant hypertension and impaired renal function and their attendant consequences. The issue whether revascularization via percutaneous renal angioplasty and stenting (PRA/S) can benefit these patients remains unsettled. OBJECTIVE: To present a case series of patients with refractory hypertension and RAS undergoing PRA/S and also to provide an extensive review of the literature on the current status of PRA/S for resistant hypertension...

A 47-year-old man presented at a local ophthalmological hospital with blurred vision. He had been diagnosed with hypertensive retinopathy and renal failure and was referred to our hospital for treatment. A renal biopsy was done to evaluate pathology of high proteinuria, hematuria, and rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis. Blood pressure remained high despite antihypertensive therapy; anemia and thrombocytopenia gradually progressed. Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) was suspected based on red blood cell fragmentation due to hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and renal failure...
