BACKGROUND: Chronic dissection of the thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta as sequela of a prior type A or B dissection is a challenging problem that requires close radiographic surveillance and prompt operative intervention in the presence of symptoms or aneurysm formation. Open repair of chronic thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic dissection using deep hypothermia has been our preferred method to treat this complex pathology. The advantages of this technique include organ and spinal cord protection, the flexibility to extend the repair proximally into the arch, and the ability to limit ischemia to all vascular beds...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact of right ventricular side branch (RVB) occlusion, during percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) of the right coronary artery (RCA), on right ventricular (RV) function. BACKGROUND: Developments in PCI techniques have expanded PCI CTO feasibility. However, the utilization of dissection and reentry techniques and extensive stent implantation increases the risk of coronary side branch occlusion...

Although coronary obstruction due to atherosclerosis is the most common cause of myocardial ischemia, a significant proportion of patients have myocardial ischemia in the absence of obstructive epicardial coronary artery disease (CAD). This finding is more common among women and alternative causes can mediate myocardial ischemia. Abnormalities in vascular structure, alterations in coronary vasomotion and dysfunction of the coronary microcirculation can all cause ischemia in the absence of obstructive CAD due to atherosclerosis...

INTRODUCTION: The risk of acute myocardial infarction in young women is low, but increases during pregnancy due to the physiological changes in pregnancy, including hypercoagulability. Ischaemic heart disease during pregnancy is not only associated with increased maternal morbidity and mortality, but also with high neonatal complications. Advancing maternal age and other risk factors for cardiovascular diseases may further increase the risk of ischaemic heart disease in young women. METHODS: We searched the coronary angiography database of a Dutch teaching hospital to identify women with acute myocardial infarction who presented during pregnancy or postpartum between 2011 and 2013...

Dissection and re-entry (DR) techniques have played a key role in the increase of success rates of chronic total occlusion (CTO) recanalization. DR usually allows wiring complex occlusions, even in case of important calcification. In extreme cases, such as in balloon failure-to-cross, rotational atherectomy (RA) might be decisive. However, according to experts' recommendations, RA should not be performed in dissection planes because of the high risk of perforation and further extending the dissection, so that its use after DR might be limited...

Coronary trifurcation lesions are a complex subset of lesions and are substantially more complex than bifurcations when treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) because of higher rates of acute periprocedural complications (dissection, myocardial infarction, acute vessel closure) and less effective long-term outcomes (stent thrombosis, restenosis) as compared to non-bifurcation lesions. We present the case of a 73-year-old man who was admitted to our hospital with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis who was found to have a distal left main trifurcation disease as well as porcelain aorta on work-up...

BACKGROUND: The bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BRS) technology constitutes the new revolution of the coronary artery disease interventional treatment. Currently, three distinct types of BRSs are available but only one, the Absorb BVS, was on the market in 2013 when the Regional Commission for Medical Devices and the Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Commission of the Emilia-Romagna Region drew up a technical and scientific essay to provide guidance for the introduction of BRS in public and affiliated health facilities...

Postmyocardial infarction ventricular septal defect is an increasingly rare mechanical complication of acute myocardial infarction. We present a case of acute myocardial infarction from right coronary artery occlusion that developed hypotension and systolic murmur 12 hours after successful percutaneous coronary intervention. Although preoperative imaging suggested a large ventricular septal defect and a pseudoaneurysm, intraoperative findings concluded a serpiginous dissection of the ventricular septum. The imaging technicalities are discussed...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac emergencies during pregnancy are rare but have significant associated morbidity and mortality when they do occur. The emergency physician must not only be aware of potentially life-threatening conditions in the pregnant woman, but also know the emergent management and treatment of these conditions to avoid worsening of the underlying condition. Pregnancy-related spontaneous coronary artery dissection has been described in the cardiology literature, but is not well-known in emergency medicine literature...

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) is a non-traumatic and non-iatrogenic separation of the coronary arterial wall. Although uncommon, it should be suspected in any young patient with acute myocardial infarction especially without risk factor of cardiovascular disease. Early coronary angiography is essential in the diagnosis of SCAD. Fibromuscular dysplasia is a rare cause of SCAD, particularly encountered in young women. This is a nonatherosclerotic and noninflammatory vascular disease. Fibromuscular dysplasia may cause stenosis, aneurysm, dissection and / or occlusion of arteries...

BACKGROUND Studies in vivo have shown that dexmedetomidine (DEX) could protect the myocardium and modulate the coronary blood flow. This study aimed to investigate the direct and concentration-dependent effects of DEX on the tone of porcine coronary artery in vitro and the underlying mechanisms. MATERIAL AND METHODS Distal branches of the porcine anterior descending coronary arteries were dissected and cut into 3-5 mm rings. The tones of coronary rings in response to cumulative DEX were measured using the PowerLab system...

BACKGROUND: Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is an aggressive aortopathy with a proclivity for aortic aneurysm rupture and dissection at smaller diameters than other connective tissue disorders. We reviewed our surgical experience of children with LDS to validate our guidelines for prophylactic aortic root replacement (ARR). METHODS: We reviewed all children (younger than 18 years) with a diagnosis of LDS who underwent ARR at our institution. The primary endpoint was mortality, and secondary endpoints included complications and the need for further interventions...

OBJECTIVES: Surgical therapy for acute aortic dissection type A (AADA) in octogenarians carries high morbidity and mortality. The role of isolated medical treatment in this setting is controversial. The aim of this study is to determine whether risk of surgery for AADA outweighs risk of death from medical treatment only. METHODS: From 2002 to 2015, 90 consecutive octogenarians (mean age, 83.5 ± 3 years) were treated for AADA at three institutions: 67 patients underwent surgery, 23 patients received medical treatment...

In the era of modern interventional cardiology implantation of balloon expandable stent is a finishing touch of almost every coronary angioplasty. However sometimes we face clinical situation when decision on stent diameter is complicated, especially in ectatic part of arteries, in situations when artery lumen is obscured with thrombus or when reference diameter of proximal and distal part of lesion vary greatly. That is why idea of self-apposing stent similar to one used in peripheral vascular interventions was adopted into cardiology...

PURPOSE: To investigate the angiographic dissection patterns after balloon angioplasty for superficial femoral artery (SFA) lesions, the clinical outcome associated with each dissection pattern, and the predictive factors for severe dissection. METHODS: A retrospective, multicenter analysis examined 621 patients (mean age 72.8±9.5 years; 414 men) with 748 symptomatic de novo SFA lesions treated with endovascular therapy. Vessel dissection after the initial balloon angioplasty procedure was graded into 7 types according to a modified version of the coronary artery classification types A to F...
