In October 2015, a 74-year-old Caucasian male patient (past medical history of hyperlipidemia, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, hypertension, and hypothyroidism) presented to the cardiologist for follow-up outpatient evaluation of exertional chest pain. The patient had recently been seen at the Emergency Department for the same complaint. At that time, the patient's cardiac markers, EKG, and pharmacological nuclear stress testing were all reported as normal. At presentation to the cardiologist, the patient's physical examination findings were unremarkable...

Background: Rotational atherectomy (RA) is used to improve procedural success of percutaneous catheter interventions (PCIs) of complex and heavily calcified coronary lesions. We report the clinical experience and outcomes in our institution with the use of RA, followed by drug-eluting stent implantation. Materials and Methods: Data of 81 patients treated with PCI and adjunctive RA were analyzed. Clinical follow-up for the occurrence of major adverse events (MAEs) was obtained in all patients and correlated with significant variables using multivariate Cox proportional hazards analysis...

Left main coronary compression syndrome rarely occurs in patients with severe pulmonary hypertension. A 65-year-old woman with severe pulmonary hypertension due to an atrial septal defect suffered from angina on effort. Cardiac computed-tomography and coronary angiography revealed considerable stenosis of the left main coronary artery (LMA) caused by compression between the dilated main pulmonary artery trunk and the sinus of valsalva. Stenting of the LMA under intravascular ultrasound imaging was effective for the treatment of angina...

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...

The authors evaluated the effectiveness of percutaneous renal revascularization (PRR) with stenting for the treatment of atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) in patients with coronary artery disease and the usefulness of captopril renal scintigraphy for predicting clinical outcomes after PRR. Sixty-four consecutive patients, referred for evaluation of suspected ARAS, after coronary angiography, underwent baseline captopril renal scintigraphy followed by renal angiography. Forty-four patients (68.7%) were diagnosed with a significant ARAS≥ 60% and were treated with PRR plus medical therapy...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the outcomes of subadventitial stenting (SS) around occluded stents for recanalizing in-stent chronic total occlusions (IS-CTOs). BACKGROUND: There is little evidence on the outcomes of SS for IS-CTO. METHODS: We examined the outcomes of SS for IS-CTO PCI at 14 centers between July 2011 and June 2017, and compared them to historical controls recanalized using within-stent stenting (WSS). Target-vessel failure (TVF) on follow-up was the endpoint of this study, and was defined as a composite of cardiac death, target-vessel myocardial infarction, and target-vessel revascularization...

Robotic percutaneous coronary interventions have recently been introduced in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Robotics offers benefits of greater precision for stent placement and occupational hazard protection for operators and staff. First generation systems were able to advance and retract coronary wires, balloons, and stents, but did not have guide control functions. The second-generation robotic system (CorPath GRX) has an active guide management function offering the ability to move guide catheters...

A 61-year-old man with a history of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the mid right coronary artery (RCA) with a drug eluting stent (DES), presented with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. Coronary angiography demonstrated complex disease of the distal RCA as well as in-stent stenosis of the previously placed mid RCA stent. The patient underwent bifurcation PCI of the distal RCA followed by attempted intervention with a DES on the mid RCA lesion. The stent could not cross the lesion and eventually became dissociated from its delivery system...

Pulse wave transit time (PWTT) has been widely used as an index in assessing arterial stiffness. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is usually applied to the treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD). Research on the changes in PWTT caused by PCI is helpful for understanding the impact of the PCI procedure. In addition, effects of stent sites and access sites on the changes in PWTT have not been explored. Consequently, this study aimed to provide this information. The results showed that PWTT significantly increased after PCI (p < 0...

For patients with prior coronary artery bypass graft surgery, reaching lesions in native coronary arteries distal to the anastomosis of bypass grafts can be challenging due to long distance between the graft ostium and the lesion and significant tortuosity that needs to be traversed. We describe one such lesion in a patient presenting with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock. The lesion was successfully treated using a variety of strategies, including use of a short guide catheter, long guidewire, a guide catheter extension, long shaft balloons and stents, and short length stents...

Myocardial infarction (MI) following blunt chest trauma is rare, but potentially fatal. We treated a young patient for acute MI after falling chest-first on ice while playing hockey. Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was performed after percutaneous stenting attempts were unsuccessful. By reviewing the related literature, we found 179 cases, the majority of which affected young males following road accidents. Left anterior descending artery was most frequently affected followed by right coronary artery particularly in their proximal thirds...

OBJECTIVES: To compare results of open and endovascular management of post-carotid endarterectomy (CEA) restenosis. METHODS: This was a retrospective single centre matched case control study. From 2005 to 2015, 148 consecutive interventions for post-CEA restenosis were performed: 80 cases received carotid artery stenting (CAS) and 68 cases received redo CEA. Propensity score based matching was performed in a 1:1 ratio to compare outcomes. Coronary artery disease, degree of the carotid restenosis, timing of the re-intervention with respect to the primary intervention (greater or less than 24 months) and the presence of ipsilateral brain lesions were the covariates included in the matching...

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)...

BACKGROUNDS: Drug coated balloons (DCBs) are new on stented-based anti-proliferative drug delivery systems, recently introduced in interventional cardiology. Their primary aim is to transfer an anti-proliferative drug to reduce the subsequent neo-intima hyperplasia and to maintain the normal vessel diameter and function. METHODS: A review of the most recent influential studies about DCBs in all the fields of interventional cardiology has been performed. RESULTS: As demonstrated by different studies, DCBs have different theoretical advantages over drug eluting stents (DESs), especially for the treatment of some endovascular lesions, as in-stent restenosis (ISR), coronary bifurcations, small vessels disease and peripheral artery disease at femoropopliteal and below the knee sites...
