The inhibition of inflammation and vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation is an ideal strategy to suppress intimal hyperplasia after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). Evidence has indicated that overexpression of A20 suppresses neointima formation, but its low transfection efficiency limits its application. Hence, we upregulated A20 expression via transfection of rAd.ATF (recombinant adenovirus vector of artificial transcription factor) and rAd.A20 in rat carotid arteries after balloon dilatation (in vivo) and isolated VSMCs (in vitro)...

The presence of the meandering mesenteric artery, which is a non-constant tortuous arterial component unifying the peripheral intestinal circulation, is evidence of chronic occlusive disease of the main intestinal arteries. This collateral intestinal arterial pathway, when present, must be preserved in any abdominal intervention, as it is often the only remaining arterial supply of the intestine; its ligation can be accompanied by intestinal ischemia. We present herein, the case of a 42-year old man, heavy smoker, who had chronic mesenteric ischemia without particular clinical manifestations till the hospitalization for acute myocardial infarction for which he underwent balloon angioplasty and stenting of the left circumflex coronary artery...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has revolutionized the treatment of symptomatic aortic stenosis. The number of TAVR procedures is expected to increase exponentially in the next decade. Therefore, patients will inevitably present with signs and symptoms attributable to TAVR bioprosthesis failure many years after an acutely successful procedure. Their management will become increasing important moving forward. Areas covered: The aim of this article is to review the causes of bioprosthesis failure and outline optimal management strategies in elderly patients...

There have been several reports that steroid administration is effective at preventing strictures after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). However, adverse events after steroid use are of great concern. We have reported that shielding with a polyglycolic acid (PGA) sheet and fibrin glue can be useful for prevention of stricture after ESD. We conducted a retrospective analysis of efficiency of shielding with a PGA sheet and fibrin glue for prevention of esophageal stricture compared with intralesional steroid injection...

Background: Gastric and duodenal Crohn's disease [CD]-associated strictures are rare. Evidence on endoscopic balloon dilation [EBD] of upper gastrointestinal [GI] CD strictures is limited, in particular in respect to serial dilations. Methods: Prospective short- and long-term outcome data as well as complication rates on a cohort of upper GI CD-associated stricture dilations [stomach and duodenum] were collected from 1999 to 2015. Factors linked with clinical and technical success, long-term efficacy and complication rates were investigated...

Discrete subaortic stenosis (DSS) is a progressive obstruction of left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) resulting in the development of aortic regurgitation in its natural course. Hence, early intervention is recommended. Percutaneous balloon dilation of DSS has been reported and can substantially reduce LVOT pressure gradient. The response to balloon dilation of DSS is transient and may complicate with chordal or papillary muscle rupture. Hence, balloon dilation of DSS should be discouraged.

OBJECTIVES: Any aortic valve (AoV) operation in children (repair, Ross or mechanical replacement) is a palliation and reinterventions are frequent. AoV repair is a temporary solution primarily aimed at allowing the patient to grow to an age when more definitive solutions are available. We retrospectively analysed AoV repair effectiveness across the whole age spectrum of children, excluding neonates and AoV disease secondary to congenital heart disease. METHODS: From 2003 to 2015, 193 consecutive patients were included...

BACKGROUND: Bile duct stones >1 cm have a decreased incidence of successful endoscopic extraction and often require lithotripsy. Although prior guidelines suggested mechanical lithotripsy for large CBD stones, current guidelines suggest cholangioscopy-guided lithotripsy as an adjunct with or without balloon dilation or mechanical lithotripsy. However, no randomized trials have assessed the utility of this practice. METHODS: Patients with bile duct stones >1 cm in diameter were randomized in a 2:1 ratio to cholangioscopy-guided laser lithotripsy versus conventional therapy only...

Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Early diagnosis and treatment are key to prevent Mycobacterium tuberculosis transmission. Bronchoscopy can play a primary role in pulmonary TB diagnosis, particularly for suspected patients with scarce sputum or sputum smear negativity, and with endobronchial disease. Bronchoscopic needle aspiration techniques are accurate and safe means adopted to investigate hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes in cases of suspected TB lymphadenopathy...
