Background/Aims: This study appraised the long term clinical outcomes of patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) disease. There are limited data regarding long-term clinical outcomes after PCI for ULMCA disease. Methods: From 2001 to 2011, a total of 448 patients who underwent PCI for ULMCA disease and had 2-year clinical follow-up, were analyzed. The study patients were divided into two groups: group I (stable angina pectoris [SAP], n = 60, 48 men, 62 ± 10 years) and group II (acute coronary syndrome [ACS], n = 388, 291 men, 64 ± 10 years)...

The occurrence of allergy to iodinated contrast in certain patients may prevent the use of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in such cases. We present a 53-year-old male with a history of allergic reaction to iodinated contrast who successfully underwent intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guided PCI. Stent size was determined based on IVUS. After PCI, stent expansion and a lack of edge dissection or incomplete apposition were confirmed by IVUS. Thus, PCI without contrast injection under IVUS may be feasible in selected patients with allergy to iodinated contrast...

OBJECTIVE: Intravascular ultrasound is a fundamental imaging technique for atherosclerotic plaque assessment, interventionist guidance and, ultimately, as a tissue characterization tool. The studies acquired by this technique present the spatial description of the vessel during the cardiac cycle. However, the study frames are not properly sorted. As gating methods deal with the cardiac phase classification of the frames, the gated studies lack motion compensation between vessel and catheter...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous endovascular revascularization requires the use of fluoroscopic guidance and radiopaque contrast. We present a successful intervention without the use of iodinated contrast. CASE: A 92-year-old man with dry gangrene involving the second and fourth left toes had acute on chronic kidney injury. Arterial duplex showed severe stenosis in bilateral superficial femoral arteries (SFAs). Fluoroscopic and ultrasound guidance and intravascular imaging were used to avoid iodinated contrast...

The major puncture-site complications of the transfemoral approach are retroperitoneal bleeding (RPB), arteriovenous (AV) fistula, and arterial pseudoaneurysm. Although the management of RPB and AV fistula depends on individual cases, our experience shows that the use of a covered stent with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance can successfully manage percutaneous coronary intervention-associated RPB and AV fistula. IVUS guidance can therefore make it easy to use an optimal-size covered stent.

Upper extremity blocks are useful as both sole anaesthesia and/or a supplement to general anaesthesia and they further provide effective postoperative analgesia, reducing the need for opioid analgesics. There is without doubt a renewed interest among anaesthesiologists in the interscalene, supraclavicular, infraclavicular, and axillary plexus blocks with the increasing use of ultrasound guidance. The ultrasound-guided technique visualising the needle tip and solution injected reduces the risk of side effects, accidental intravascular injection, and possibly also trauma to surrounding tissues...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate whether a 6-month dual-antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) duration was comparable with a 12-month duration in patients who underwent everolimus-eluting stent implantation. BACKGROUND: Well-designed studies that determine optimal DAPT strategies after everolimus-eluting stent implantation are limited. METHODS: A total of 1,400 patients (implanted mean total stent length >45 mm) were randomly assigned to receive 6-month (n = 699) or 12-month (n = 701) DAPT between October 2010 and July 2014 at 20 centers in Korea...

BACKGROUND: Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the standard treatment in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, some patients still develop ST re-elevation during PCI, resulting in further myocardial damage and a poor outcome. An undersized-stenting approach may prevent ST re-elevation. We aimed to determine the association between final stent area and ST re-elevation during primary PCI for STEMI. METHODS: Overall, 102 consecutive STEMI patients who underwent primary PCI under integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound guidance were enrolled...

The use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance for drug-eluting stent (DES) optimization is limited by the number of adequately powered randomized control trials (RCTs). We performed an updated meta-analysis, including data from recently published RCTs and observational studies, by reviewing the literature in Medline and the Cochrane Library to identify studies that compared clinical outcomes between IVUS-guided and angiography-guided DES implantation from January 1995 to January 2016. This meta-analysis included 25 eligible studies, including 31,283 patients, of whom 3192 patients were enrolled in 7 RCTs...

PURPOSE: To assess whether intravascular ultrasound (US) guidance impacts number of needle passes, contrast usage, radiation dose, and procedure time during creation of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Intravascular US-guided creation of TIPS in 40 patients was retrospectively compared with conventional TIPS in 49 patients between February 2010 and November 2015 at a single tertiary care institution. Patient sex and age, etiology of liver disease (hepatitis C virus, alcohol abuse, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis), severity of liver disease (mean Model for End-Stage Liver Disease score), and indications for TIPS (variceal bleeding, refractory ascites, refractory hydrothorax) in conventional and intravascular US-guided cases were recorded...

The most challenging part of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt creation is arguably the transvenous access from the hepatic vein to the portal vein. As experience and technology have evolved, the image guidance aspect of this critical step in the procedure has become more robust. Improved means to target the portal vein include both direct and indirect methods of portal vein opacification, cross-sectional imaging for both targeting and access, and novel use of transabdominal and intravascular ultrasound guidance...
