RATIONALE: Inadequate stent expansion due to rigid calcified may result in restenosis lesions, but the available options are limited. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case via the trans-radial approach of the severely underexpanded freshly deployed stent due to heavily calcified plaques DIAGNOSES:: Coronary angiography revealed that there was no adequate expansion of the freshly deployed stent. INTERVENTIONS: Under the guide of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), rotational atherectomy (RA) successfully ablated the stent layers and the protruding calcified plaque...

Drug eluting stents (DES) have been increasingly being used for treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) and have been shown to be very effective in prevention of primary in-stent restenosis (ISR). However DES have been increasingly associated with acute to subacute risk of stent fractures (SF). There is also a paucity of data about different management strategies for SF, especially in the long term. We present a case of recurrent ISR in an area of previous acute SF at the touchdown of saphenous venous graft (SVG) to first diagonal artery (D1)...

We present a case of an 80-year-old Turkish female patient with diabetes who suffered an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and underwent percutaneous coronary balloon angioplasty (PTCA)/stenting. Due to new ischaemic episodes, a second PTCA/stenting had to be preformed 6 days later, which revealed a partial restent thrombosis. This case report raises several important issues. First, language problems are an important barrier for safety and quality in healthcare. Second, gender, ethnicity and age differences in patients with AMI need to be considered in order to eliminate inequities in clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Barriers to successful left ventricular lead placement within the coronary venous anatomy may include focal stenoses, thromboses, phrenic nerve stimulation, vessel tortuosity, small vessel caliber, non-excitable tissue and valve presence. A large series describing the utilization of coronary venous angioplasty (CVAP) for relief of these issues is absent in the literature. OBJECTIVE: We report our experience for all patients treated with CVAP in a single-center 13-year experience...

We report a case of percutaneous coronary intervention for spontaneous multi-vessel coronary dissection including the left main coronary artery. This case suggests that intracoronary imaging is useful for understanding the complex anatomy and for choosing the appropriate management for effective revascularization. Furthermore, cutting balloon angioplasty prior to stenting is useful for preventing the longitudinal extension of the intramural hematoma and avoiding unnecessary stent implantation.

REVIEW
Agne Frismantiene, Maria Philippova, Paul Erne, Therese J Resink
Vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) phenotypes span a reversible continuum from quiescent/contractile (differentiated) to proliferative/synthetic (dedifferentiated) enabling them to perform a diversity of functions that are context-dependent and important for vascular tone-diameter homeostasis, vasculogenesis, angiogenesis or vessel reparation after injury. Dysregulated phenotype modulation and failure to maintain/regain the mature differentiated and contractile phenotypic state is pivotal in the development of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis and restenosis after angioplasty and coronary bypass grafting...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) has a substantial mortality rate and the acute coronary syndrome constitutes the major cause. Post-resuscitation electrocardiogram ST-elevation SCA (STE-SCA) is a strong indication for emergency coronary angiography, but the role of early angiography and PCI in patients without ST-elevation (NSTE-SCA) remains to be established. This paper aimed to describe this patient group and evaluate the prognostic effect of early PCI in a large nationwide cohort of NSTE-SCA patients undergoing coronary angiography...

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is 40 years old this year. From its humble beginnings of experimental work, PCI has transitioned over years with coronary artery stenting now a standard medical procedure performed throughout the world. Areas covered: The conversion from plain old balloon angioplasty (POBA) to the present era of drug eluting stents (DES) has been driven by many technological advances and large bodies of clinical trial evidence. The journey to present day practice has seen many setbacks, such as acute vessel closure with POBA; rates of instant restenosis with bare metal stents (BMS) and more recently, high rates of stent thrombosis with bioabsorbable platforms...

Radiation dose from complex cardiac procedures are of concern due to lengthy fluoroscopic screening time and vessel complexities. This study intends to assess radiation dose based on angiographic projection and vessel complexities for clinical protocols used in performing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) procedure. Dose area product (DAP), reference air kerma (Ka,r) and real time monitoring of tube potentials and tube current for each angiographic projection and dose setting were evaluated for 66 patients who underwent PTCA using flat detector system...

Although exercise testing has become a standard procedure before discharge for patients with acute coronary syndrome, a fatal accident during the test is extremely rare. A 60-year-old man was admitted for a non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. A coronary angiogram showed stenosis at the distal lesion of the circumflex, and a balloon angioplasty was performed. His recovery was smooth, and a cardiopulmonary exercise test was performed 5 days after admission. At 2.5 metabolic equivalents, he suddenly went into cardiac arrest, and percutaneous cardiopulmonary support was initiated...

Background In-stent restenosis has been recognized as a distinct clinical entity that warrants a repeat procedure either in the form of percutaneous reintervention or coronary artery bypass grafting. Multivessel grafting with endarterectomy and explantation of the stent is rarely performed, with few cases reported in the literature. We aim to study the pathomorphology of the stent-vascular interface in coronary vessels undergoing in-stent restenosis. Methods Over a period of 3 years, 3 patients who had undergone angioplasty for diffuse coronary artery disease developed in-stent restenosis and were advised coronary artery bypass...

INTRODUCTION: In patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), the best timing for coronary angiography is not definitely established, although it is recognized that in high-risk patients it should be performed within the first 24 hours. The aim of this work was to describe the evolution over time of the use of an invasive strategy in the treatment of NSTEMI and in-hospital mortality. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of patients admitted with NSTEMI included in the Portuguese Registry on Acute Coronary Syndromes (ProACS) between 2002 and 2015...
