M Baumhäkel, M Kindermann
BACKGROUND AND AIM: Guideline recommendations regarding antithrombotic treatment with two antiplatelet agents (dual antiplatelet treatment) after peripheral interventional procedures are vague due to missing data from clinical trials. METHODS: 212 vascular centres in germany were evaluated regarding dual antiplatelet treatment using a standardized questionnaire with differentiation of localisation of the treated artery and interventional methods being used. RESULTS: 89 (42%) questionnaires returned completed...

Since Gruentizg's first percutaneous transluminal ballon angioplasty in 1977 in Zurich, percuta. neous coronary intervention evolved significantly in order to overcome the numerous associated complications of each technique. Bare-metal stents (BMS) made their initial appearance followed by three generations of drug-eluting stents (DES). The use of bioabsorbable vascular scaffold stents (BVS) has become more frequent creating a temporary scaffold allowing healing of the endothelium within 2 years. In this article, we discuss the nomenclature of the main intravascular complications linked to percuta...

OBJECTIVE: Heavily calcified left-main coronary diseases (LMCA) remain a formidable challenge for percutaneous interventions (PCI). This study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of using rotational atherectomy (RA) in treating such lesions in actual practice. METHODS: From February 2004 to March 2012, all consecutive patients who received RA for heavily-calcified LMCA lesions in our cath lab were enrolled. The relevant clinical and angiographic characteristics at the time of index PCI, as well as the clinical follow-up outcomes, were retrieved and analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Left Main Coronary Artery (LMCA) disease is now uniformly treated with coronary artery by pass grafting (CABG). However some patients with LMCA disease did not receive CABG because of high operative risks as well as those who refused CABG Recent studies demonstrated the feasibility of stenting for LM stenosis, although data remain limited. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate in-hospital and mid-term outcomes of using bare metal stent (BMS) and drug eluting stent (DES) in protected and unprotected left main coronary artery disease at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital...
