BACKGROUND: The retrograde approach through epicardial collaterals (EC) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a challenging procedure. Our study aim was to evaluate the outcomes of patients undergoing CTO PCI using a retrograde approach through epicardial versus non-epicardial collaterals (NEC). METHODS: We collected data from our single-center registry of consecutive patients undergoing retrograde CTO PCI, performed by an experienced operator through EC and NEC (septals and bypass grafts)...

OBJECTIVE: To compare clinical outcomes after laparoscopic lavage (LL) or colonic resection (CR) for purulent diverticulitis. BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic lavage has been suggested as an alternative treatment for traditional CR. Comparative studies to date have shown conflicting results. METHODS: Electronic searches of Embase, Medline, Web of Science, and Cochrane databases were performed. Weighted mean differences (WMD) were calculated for effect size of continuous variables and pooled odds ratios (POR) calculated for discrete variables...

BACKGROUND: The antenatal diagnosis of a combined esophageal atresia without tracheoesophageal fistula and duodenal atresia with or without gastric perforation is a rare occurrence. These diagnoses are difficult and can be suspected on ultrasound by nonspecific findings including a small stomach and polyhydramnios. Fetal magnetic resonance imaging adds significant anatomical detail and can aid in the diagnosis of these complicated cases. Upon an extensive literature review, there are no reports documenting these combined findings in a twin pregnancy...

Coronary artery perforation during percutaneous intervention is a rare but potentially life threatening complication. The treatment of coronary perforation can be challenging in view of potential life threatening consequences such as cardiac tamponade or myocardial infarction. Presented is a clinical course of a 69year-old female who developed cardiac tamponade as a result of presumed wire related perforation of the posterolateral branch of the right coronary artery. Her clinical course was further complicated by recurrent tamponade, atrial fibrillation, stress induced cardiomyopathy, heparin induced thrombocytopenia and cardiogenic pulmonary edema...

INTRODUCTION: Brescia-Cimino radiocephalic arteriovenous fistula (AVF) remains the first-choice vascular access procedure for patients in need of long-term hemodialysis. The average life expectancy of patients receiving hemodialysis has increased in recent years and many patients now live longer and require secondary or tertiary procedures. Elbow fistulas should only rarely be constructed as primary fistulas. The aim of the surgeon must be not only to achieve a functioning fistula, but to avoid possible complications other than failure to mature (FTM), like distal ischemia and cardiac failure and to save the vessels as much as possible for future procedures...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common genetic cardiovascular disease characterized by a thickened non-dilated ventricle in the absence of another cardiac or systemic condition. Its most important hemodynamic consequence is left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction. The primary management strategy of this condition is surgical septal myectomy, but an acceptable alternative treatment in patients who are not suitable for (or who refuse) surgery is alcohol septal ablation (ASA). However, in patients with unfavorable coronary anatomy which precludes ASA (i...

BACKGROUND: Device interrogation has become a standard part of the syncope evaluation for patients admitted with permanent pacemakers (PPM) or implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICD), although few studies have shown interrogation yields clinically useful data. The purpose of this study is to determine the diagnostic yield of device interrogation as well as other commonly performed tests in the workup of unexplained syncope in patients with previously implanted PPMs or ICDs. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed records of 88 patients admitted to our medical center for syncope with previously implanted pacemakers between January 1, 2005 and January 1, 2015 using ICD-9 billing data...

Subrata Kar, Richard R Webel
Spontaneous coronary artery pseudoaneurysm (PSA, false aneurysm) is an extremely rare occurrence with the precise incidence unknown. It is defined as an outwardly bulging monolayer or double layer within the coronary artery that lacks all 3 layers (intima, media, and adventitia) of the arterial wall. Coronary PSA commonly occurs from arterial dissection or perforation induced by catheter intervention, infection, pregnancy, or trauma. Traumatic dissection or perforation of the coronary artery after a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains the most common cause...

OBJECTIVE: We analyzed the incidence of bradycardia and the safety of patients with severely calcified coronary lesions who underwent orbital atherectomy without the insertion of a temporary pacemaker. BACKGROUND: The presence of severely calcified coronary lesions can increase the complexity of percutaneous coronary intervention due to the difficulty in advancing and optimally expanding the stent. High-pressure inflations to predilate calcified lesions may cause angiographic complications like perforation and dissection...

Coronary sinus injury is a very rare complication of cardiac surgery and is usually related to coronary sinus perfusion catheter placement for retrograde cardioplegia infusion. It can be either a catheter-related perforation or high-perfusion pressure-related injury to the coronary sinus. Primary repair of the coronary sinus or over-sewing are two possible options to resolve this complication. Decellularized extracellular matrix from porcine intestinal submucosa is widely used as an approved material for repairing cardiac structures...

We report 3 cases of gastric cancer with rare presentations of oncologic emergency. Case 1 involved cardiac tamponade caused by mediastinitis-induced pericarditis. Metastatic lymph nodes became enlarged after total gastrectomy and invaded the esophagojejunal anastomotic region. Then, a fistula to the mediastinum occurred, resulting in mediastinitis. The drainage was efficacious, but the patient died of cancer 1 month after admission. Case 2 involved cardiac tamponade caused by invasion of metastatic peritoneal tumor into the pericardium...

The Royal College of Surgeons have proposed using outcomes from necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) surgery for revalidation of neonatal surgeons. The aim of this study was therefore to calculate the number of infants in the UK/Ireland with surgical NEC and describe outcomes that could be used for national benchmarking and counselling of parents. A prospective nationwide cohort study of every infant requiring surgical intervention for NEC in the UK was conducted between 01/03/13 and 28/02/14. Primary outcome was mortality at 28-days...

OBJECTIVE: Five percent of cardiac implantable electric devices (CIEDs) are removed each year. Percutaneous extraction is preferred but can be complicated if the leads adhere to the vasculature or perforate. The goal of this study is to assess the frequency of findings on dedicated MDCT that alter preprocedural planning for percutaneous CIED extraction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred patients with CIEDs who underwent MDCT before percutaneous lead extraction were analyzed...
