RATIONALE: Coronary artery fistula (CAF) is characterized by an abnormal communication of a coronary artery with a cardiac chamber or a great vessel bypassing the capillary bed. Surgical closure of large or symptomatic CAF is the gold standard treatment. However the previously closed CAF still has the possibility to reopen. Superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS) is defined as a condition that occurs when the obstruction of the superior vena cava interrupts blood flow from the head, upper extremities, and thorax to the right atrium and can present a life-threatening situation...

BACKGROUND: Trans-radial access has rapidly become the standard for percutaneous coronary procedures in the last decade. As proceduralists overcome the learning curve and become more competent in trans-radial access, alternative safe access sites such as the ulnar artery have been increasingly used for emergent and elective procedures. The aim of this study was to synthesize the best available evidence of the impact on major adverse cardiac events (MACE) of ulnar artery compared to radial artery cardiac catheterization...

Coronary arteriovenous fistula (CAVF) is a rare condition defined as an anomalous termination of the coronary arteries. The etiology of CAVF is either congenital or acquired, and iatrogenic CAVF is most commonly caused by cardiovascular surgery or percutaneous intervention. Most of the prenatally diagnosed CAVFs were related to complex heart disease, and only few cases of an isolated CAVF have been reported to date. We successfully diagnosed an isolated CAVF by fetal echocardiography at 25.3 weeks of gestation...

Coronary arteriovenous fistula in continuity with the aortic arch by abnormal vessels running along the surface of the pulmonary artery is rare. We describe two cases of this rare and unique arteriovenous network and discuss the issue of diagnosis and treatment with a review of the literature.

BACKGROUND: Periprocedural bleeding is associated with increased risk of early mortality during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), especially in patients on dialysis. A transradial approach (TRA) should be considered for these patients; however, PCI operators avoid this approach because of the risk of radial artery occlusion (RAO). The aim of this study is to construct a TRA system and clarify its safety in patients on dialysis. METHODS: Eighty-eight consecutive patients on dialysis who underwent cardiac catheterization were prospectively included in this study and divided according to the access site into either the TRA group or the transfemoral approach (TFA) group...

Advances in medical diagnosis reveal that coronary artery aneurysms (CAAs) may develop in several clinical scenarios and manifest variable symptoms, imaging appearances, and outcomes. Aneurysms are pathologically classified into three groups: atherosclerotic, inflammatory, and noninflammatory. The last category is associated with congenital, inherited, and connective tissue disorders. Overlap exists among the groups, because secondary atherosclerotic change may be present in an aneurysm of any cause. Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of CAAs in adults, and inflammation is considered the underlying mechanism...

We present the case of a patient who presented with acute coronary syndrome and was found to have a mass compressing the left atrium. An angiogram revealed a large saphenous vein graft aneurysm with a fistula into a cardiac chamber, presumed to be the left ventricle. The patient also developed a functional mitral stenosis secondary to this mass causing left atrial compression. The patient passed away prior to receiving surgery. We describe a rare case of venous graft aneurysm with compression and fistula to a chamber other than the right atrium, that to our knowledge has yet to be reported...

Coronary artery fistula (CAF) is an uncommon anomaly that is usually congenital but can be acquired. Although most patients are asymptomatic, some may present with congestive heart failure, infective endocarditis, myocardial ischemia or rupture. In the past, surgical ligation was the only option in the management of CAF, but since 1983, transcatheter closure of CAF has been increasing as an alternative to surgery. We report a 3-year-old boy, presented in Queen Alia Heart Institute, who underwent successful transcatheter closure of a large fistula communicating the distal part of the right coronary artery to the right ventricle...

The progress and development of drug-coated balloons (DCBs) represents an emerging alternative treatment in peripheral and coronary artery diseases, particularly when a non-stent approach is necessary. Several studies and meta-analyses have evaluated the clinical outcomes of DCBs in different lesions and this review aims to compile the progress and updated clinical data of DCB strategy in both peripheral artery diseases (PAD) and coronary artery diseases (CAD). The review highlights that clinical data encouraged the use of DCB for applications in PAD and in the treatment of coronary in-stent restenosis (ISR)...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery anomalies (CAAs) are congenital variations of one or more of the coronary arteries and they are an uncommon but important cause of chest pain and, in some cases, sudden cardiac death. Anomalies of coronary arteries may be found incidentally in 0.3-1% of healthy individuals. The three types of coronary artery anomalies are anomalies of origin, anomalies of course and anomalies of termination. The purpose of our study was to estimate the frequency of CAAs in Canton Sarajevo, B&H, and to deteremine the prevalence of origin, course and termination anomalies of coronary arteries...

AIMS: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of combined of endovascular coiling as well as Onyx embolization in patients with coronary artery fistula (CAF). METHODS AND RESULTS: Between September 2014 and September 2016, 26 patients with CAFs were enrolled in our study for attempted combined therapy using coil and Onyx. The mean age of patients was 64.0±9.5 years (range, 44-78 years). CAFs were large in 10 and medium in 16 patients. The mean number of coils used was 3...

Creation of an arteriovenous access for hemodialysis can provoke a sequence of events that significantly affects cardiovascular hemodynamics. We present a 78-year-old man with end-stage renal disease and concomitant coronary artery disease previously requiring coronary artery bypass grafting including a left internal mammary graft to the left anterior descending artery, ischemic cardiomyopathy with left ventricular systolic dysfunction, and severe aortic stenosis who developed hypotension unresponsive to medical therapy after recent angioplasty of his ipsilateral arteriovenous fistula for high-grade outflow stenosis...

BACKGROUND: Biliary fistula (BF) is a major surgical complication that can develop after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) whose risk factors remain unclear. Substantial atherosclerotic celiac axis stenosis (SACAS) has not been reported to be one of them. METHODS: Data from 507 patients undergoing PD between Jan 1, 2013 and Dec 31, 2015 were retrospectively collected. Clinical data from patients with SACAS were studied, and the independent risk factors for BF underwent multivariate logistic regression analysis, including SACAS...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric heart transplant recipients are at risk for increased left ventricular (LV) diastolic stiffness. However, the noninvasive evaluation of LV stiffness has remained elusive in this population. The objective of this study was to compare novel echocardiographic measures of LV diastolic stiffness versus gold-standard measures derived from pressure-volume loop (PVL) analysis in pediatric heart transplant recipients. METHODS: Patients undergoing left heart catheterization were prospectively enrolled...
