BACKGROUND: Transradial artery (TRA) left heart catheterization is an increasingly used technique for both diagnostic and interventional coronary procedures. This study evaluates the incidence of access site complications in the current interventional era. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 507 procedures were performed under standardized conditions. Each procedure was performed using high levels of anticoagulation, hydrophilic sheaths, and short post-procedural compression times...

A 71-year-old male with known bronchiectasis and atrial fibrillation was admitted to Seoul St. Mary's Hospital with recurrent transient ischemic attack. Radiofrequency ablation was performed to resolve the patient's atrial fibrillation, but failed. However, a fistula between the left circumflex artery and the bilateral bronchial arteries was found on computed tomography. Fistula ligation and a left-side maze operation were planned due to his recurrent symptom of dizziness, and these procedures were successfully performed...

We present an uncommon and underreported complication of coronary artery bypass graft surgery: erroneous anastomosis of the left internal mammary artery to the great cardiac vein. The iatrogenic aorto-coronary arteriovenous fistula with left-to-right shunting resulted in dilation of the coronary sinus, a supporting secondary finding. Factors predisposing to this inadvertent anastomosis include an intramyocardial segment of the left anterior descending coronary artery, demonstrated in this case, as well as epicardial fat and potentially fibrosis of the underlying myocardium...

Anomalies of the coronary arteries mainly concern a pediatric population, bringing together a wide range of defects. In adults, the evolution is linked to the hemodynamic consequences of fistula. Several therapeutic options have been proposed such as surgery or embolization. We report the case of a 55 years old patient addressed because of dyspnea secondary to aortic insufficiency. The preoperative assessment shown the coexistence of coronary abnormality corresponding to a coronaro-pulmonary fistula. This type of coronary anomaly is rarely described in the adult population, because of its consequences secondary to the closure of the foramen ovale, resulting in angina symptoms in childhood...

The transradial approach (TRA) for coronary angiography and interventions is increasingly utilized around the world. Radial artery occlusion (RAO) is the most common significant complication after transradial catheterization, with incidence varying between 1% and 10%. Although RAO is rarely accompanied by hand ischemia, it is an important complication because it prohibits future transradial access and radial artery utilization as a conduit for coronary artery bypass grafting or arteriovenous fistula formation...

BACKGROUND: Vascular complications are still common in the catheterization laboratory setting. However, no risk scores for their prediction have been described. With a view to bridging this gap, the present study sought to develop and validate a score for prediction of vascular complications associated with arterial access in patients undergoing interventional cardiology procedures. METHODS: This prospective multicenter cohort study included adult patients who underwent cardiac catheterization via the femoral or radial route...

AIMS: Coronary artery fistulae represent one of the most challenging anatomical defects to define accurately. We investigated the additional benefit conferred by volume-rendering of tomographic images and 3D-printing for diagnosis and interventional planning. METHODS AND RESULTS: Four cases of coronary fistulae were considered for transcatheter closure. Multidetector computed tomography (3 cases) or Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (1 case) images were acquired and segmented using Mimics software...

A coronary arteriovenous fistula is an abnormal connection between a coronary artery and any of four chambers in the heart. We repot a unique case with a fistulae originating from right coronary artery and draining into the right atrium via coronary sinus although Takotsubo-like left ventricular dysfunction or acute myocardial infarction was initially thought to have occurred according to the electrocardiogram finding.

We report three cases of coronary fistula aneurysm associated with mitral valve insufficiency. The patients were referred to our cardiovascular department because of exertional dyspnea. Echocardiography showed severe mitral valve insufficiency resulting from leaflet flail or prolapse and normal left ventricular function. In all three cases, preoperative coronary angiography showed coronary-to-pulmonary artery fistula associated with significant aneurysm of the fistulous tract. All patients underwent uneventful mitral valve repair and external ligation of the fistulas...

Coronary artery fistula (CAF) is a rare anomaly of the coronary artery. The draining site of a right coronary artery (RCA) fistula may usually be the right ventricle, right atrium, or pulmonary artery. Here, we present a patient with right coronary artery to coronary sinus fistula (RCACSF) complicated by aneurysmal dilatation of the coronary sinus (CS) and stenosis of CS ostium.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVE: To compare the incidence of femoral access puncture site complications in the control group, who underwent 6 hours of bed rest, with patients in the case group, who underwent 4 hours of bed rest. BACKGROUND: The ideal bed rest length after percutaneous coronary intervention with a 7-French arterial sheath has been investigated by nursing practice. However, in this larger-sheath-size group, best practices have not been determined, and bed rest time continues to vary markedly among institutions...

OBJECTIVES: This study is the first head-to-head analysis of StarClose vs. ProGlide in patients undergoing 5F or 6F percutaneous coronary catheterization or peripheral artery interventions. BACKGROUND: The clip based StarClose and the suture mediated ProGlide vascular closure device are well established for femoral hemostasis in endovascular therapy. However, until now no prospective randomized study compared the safety and efficacy of the two devices. METHODS: This prospective, randomized, single-center study enrolled 505 patients (69...

Coronary artery fistula (CAF) is an abnormality in which the coronary artery has an anomalous connection with a venous structure such as the coronary sinus or atrium. CAF is usually congenital, but may be acquired. The prevalence in the general population is low with many asymptomatic and discovered incidentally. When symptomatic, CAF may present with dyspnea, decreasing functional capacity, and/or arrhythmia. We report a case of a young otherwise healthy active duty male with progressive symptoms of dizziness and exertional fatigue with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation...

BACKGROUND: Takayasu arteritis (TA), also known as aortoarteritis and pulseless disease, is an autoimmune, idiopathic, large-vessel vasculitis that primarily affects the aorta and its major branches, the coronary arteries, and the pulmonary arteries. METHODS: This is a peculiar clinical and radiological pattern of TA in a young female Caucasian. Her medical history included diagnosis of ulcerative rectocolitis at the age of 14. Because of the occurrence of anemia and exacerbation of rectocolitis, she had started infliximab associated with low doses of cortisone and mesalazine...
