David C Lange, Morton J Kern
Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is a well-validated tool for determining the functional significance of a coronary artery stenosis, facilitating clinical decisions regarding the need for revascularization. FFR-guided revascularization improves clinical and economic outcomes. However, its application remains challenging in certain complex anatomic subsets, including left main coronary artery stenosis, bifurcation disease, and saphenous vein graft disease. This article reviews recent data supporting the use of FFR in these complex anatomic subsets...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to establish the typical location of the common femoral artery (CFA) bifurcation, the origin and most inferior reflection of the inferior epigastric artery (IEA) relative to the femoral head (FH) and whether patient demographics predicted anatomical variations. BACKGROUND: In the absence of ultrasound guidance or prior imaging, the precise location of the CFA bifurcation and IEA can only be determined following access site angiography. Fluoroscopic landmarks are commonly used to estimate the location of the CFA bifurcation, but the position of the IEA is less well characterized...

Pressure wire-based fractional flow reserve is considered the standard of reference for evaluation of the ischemic potential of coronary stenoses and the expected benefit from revascularization. Accordingly, its application in daily practice or for research purposes has to be as standardized as possible to avoid technical or operator-related artifacts in pressure recordings. This document proposes a standardized way of acquiring, recording, interpreting, and archiving the pressure tracings for daily practice and for the purpose of clinical research involving a core laboratory...

PCI to SVG is considered a higher risk intervention requiring clinical judgment, especially in the elderly who may have the oldest and most degenerated SVG conduits. In a cohort of patients with a median age of 75 years who received PCI to SVG with DES, all-cause mortality was lower compared to those receiving BMS, and no difference in MI or urgent revascularization was observed to 3 years. PCI to SVG using DES may be a viable and perhaps superior treatment option for elderly patients.

Risk stratification in patients with stable ischemic heart disease is essential to guide treatment decisions. In this regard, whether coronary anatomy, physiology, or plaque morphology is the best determinant of prognosis (and driver an effective therapeutic risk reduction) remains one of the greatest ongoing debates in cardiology. In the present report, we review the evidence for each of these characteristics and explore potential algorithms that may enable a practical diagnostic and therapeutic strategy for the management of patients with stable ischemic heart disease...

Transulnar is a reasonable alternative to transradial access. This meta-analysis shows that the transulnar route is as safe as transradial, but may be more difficult to successfully perform. Ultrasound imaging can determine whether the radial or ulnar route would be preferable in a particular patient.

EDITORIAL
Arnold H Seto, Morton J Kern
Simulator training provides practice for trainees without exposing patients to potentially higher-risk operators early in their training. This study suggests that simulator training shortens the learning curve for femoral access and reduces complications. Commercial availability of inexpensive, realistic simulators would aid medical education and reduce the risk posed to patients.

Antiglomerular basement membrane (GBM) disease presenting during pregnancy is uncommon. We present a case of a pregnant female who presented with acute renal failure requiring dialysis due to anti-GBM disease. She responded well to plasma exchange, high-dose steroids, and hemodialysis. Cyclophosphamide was discussed but not given at the patient's request due to concerns for the well-being of the fetus. Unfortunately, she suffered a spontaneous abortion in her eighth week of pregnancy. Subsequently, she had progressive improvement in her renal function and became hemodialysis independent at 2 weeks after diagnosis...

Delivered contrast volume is the major modifiable risk factor for contrast nephropathy. The AVERT system can divert 31-40% of contrast for peripheral angiography. The upcoming results of the AVERT clinical trial will demonstrate whether the AVERT system reduces contrast nephropathy.

REVIEW

Coronary angiography is the gold standard for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease and guides revascularization strategies. The emergence of new diagnostic modalities has provided clinicians with adjunctive physiologic and image-based data to help formulate treatment strategies. Fractional flow reserve can predict whether percutaneous intervention will benefit a patient. Intravascular ultrasonography and optical coherence tomography are intracoronary imaging modalities that facilitate the anatomic visualization of the vessel lumen and characterize plaques...

Coronary perforation is a rare but devastating complication of PCI, requiring rescue devices such as covered stents. This paper documents the successful use of a pericardial covered stent in 9/9 patients for coronary perforation. Pericardial covered stents have theoretical advantages over PTFE covered stents, but clinical studies proving this are not feasible.
