Objectives The purpose of this study was to determine applicability and procedural success of bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in an all-comer cohort. Background BVS use in bifurcations and severely calcified lesions is not recommended, and a relatively large crossing profile may cause limitations. It is has never been studied how widely BVS can be applied in all-comer cohorts. Methods In 383 consecutive patients (acute coronary syndrome: 124, stable coronary disease 259), a BVS (Absorb) was used as first-line device unless any of the following contraindications were present: bifurcation with side branch >2...

A 53-year-old man underwent percutaneous coronary intervention of a chronic total occlusion of the circumflex artery. A mini-crush stent technique with two drug-eluting stents was performed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of coronary artery aneurysm affecting a bifurcated chronic total occlusion treated with a two-stent technique.

BACKGROUND: The cumulative amount of iodinated-contrast-medium necessary for EVAR planning, operative procedure and subsequent follow-up is a threat for the onset of end stage renal disease in patients with pre-operative impaired kidney function. Purpose of this study is to describe a mini-invasive approach aimed to minimize the exposure of these patients to iodinated-contrast-medium and the subsequent risk of renal function worsening. METHODS: From 2012 to 2015, all patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) at high-surgical risk and fit for standard endovascular repair (simple aortic-iliac anatomy: proximal and distal neck length ≥15mm, no severe angulation), underwent EVAR through the following "near-zero contrast" approach, if their glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was <30 mL/min: pre-operative planning was performed by non-contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) and duplex-ultrasound (DU); the origin of renal/hypogastric arteries and aortic bifurcation was evaluated and matched with vertebral bone landmarks and the endograft deployed accordingly, using < 20cc of isotonic iodinate-contrast-medium and contrast-enhancement-DU (CEUS)...

BACKGROUND: This retrospective study identifies often overlooked anatomical sites for non-thrombotic venous outflow obstruction (NTVO) in patients with unexplained lower extremity edema and pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 75 consecutive patients experiencing symptoms of unexplained lower extremity edema with pain that were unexplained by ultrasound, computed tomography angiography (CTA), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), who subsequently underwent venography in an outpatient medical office from 2010 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: There is no international consensus regarding the optimum management of infected aortae (mycotic aneurysms, infected aortic grafts). Neoaortoiliac reconstruction has advantages over extra-anatomical bypass grafting; however, the use of autologous vein is associated with venous hypertension and compartment syndrome, alternatively cadaveric homografts are associated with high rates of perianastomotic hemorrhage, limb occlusion, and pseudoaneurysm. Arterial repair using xenoprosthetic patches is associated with lower infection rates compared to the use of prosthetic material...

INTRODUCTION: In vascular surgery the crossover iliofemoral bypass grafting is a well-known surgical technique. In general surgery the repair of an abdominal defect using a Polypropylene mesh is also a standard procedure. A particular technique is defined by the performance of these 2 separate procedures inside a single operation in which the crossover arterial graft is directed from the retroperitoneal space toward the contra-lateral femoral bifurcation through a Polypropylene mesh which closes the musculoaponeurotic layers of the abdominal wall...

We propose and analyse a nonlinear mathematical model for the transmission dynamics of pneumonia disease in a population of varying size. The deterministic compartmental model is studied using stability theory of differential equations. The effective reproduction number is obtained and also the asymptotic stability conditions for the disease free and as well as for the endemic equilibria are established. The possibility of bifurcation of the model and the sensitivity indices of the basic reproduction number to the key parameters are determined...

INTRODUCTION: The intentional strategy (aggressive side branch (SB) protection strategy: elective two-stent strategy or jailed balloon technique) is thought to be associated with lower SB occlusion rate than conventional strategy (provisional two-stent strategy or jailed wire technique). However, most previous studies showed comparable outcomes between the two strategies, probably due to no risk classification of SB occlusion when enrolling patients. There is still no randomised trial compared the intentional and conventional strategy when treating bifurcation lesions with high risk of SB occlusion...

OBJECTIVE: High-degree stenosis of both innominate (IA) or left common carotid artery (CCA) and carotid bifurcation is uncommon but still represents a significant challenge to interventionists in many aspects including techniques, timing, and priority. There are several strategies for intervention that have been reported in the literature. A well-described, less-invasive strategy for extracranial tandem carotid lesions is concomitant carotid endarterectomy (CEA) with retrograde carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS)...

We report a case of an 81-year-old man, hospitalized for sepsis unresponsive to targeted antibiotic therapy, who underwent abdominal aortic aneurysmectomy with stent placement before 12 years. Point-of-care ultrasound examination showed the presence of a voluminous and inhomogeneous lesion adjacent to the anterior wall of aortic bifurcation with pulsatile flow from the aorta into the lesion, highlighted by Color-Doppler, and peripheral (closely with intestinal loops) floating hyperechoic spots marked by posterior comet tail artifact, suggestive for the presence of air bubbles...

Catheter-induced coronary dissection involving left main bifurcation is a rare complication during cardiac catheterization but can become lethal unless it is treated appropriately. Interventional cardiologists always have to pay attention to the risk of complications related to cardiac catheterization and prepare for determining the best bailout strategy for the situation.

Percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) involving coronary bifurcation lesions are associated with adverse outcomes compared with non-bifurcation lesions. The Tryton Side Branch Stent has been developed to improve clinical outcomes after bifurcation PCI. Areas covered: We will discuss observational data (clinical registries and intravascular imaging studies) and randomized data from the TRYTON trial (comparing Tryton [used in combination with a main branch drug-eluting stent (DES)] with side branch balloon angioplasty [in combination with a main branch DES; also referred to the provisional strategy])...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation (CAVM) hemodynamic is disease condition, results changes in the flow and pressure level in cerebral blood vessels. Measuring flow and pressure without catheter intervention along the vessel is big challenge due to vessel bifurcations/complex bifurcations in Arteriovenous Malformation patients. The vessel geometry in CAVM patients are complex, composed of varying diameters, lengths, and bifurcations of various angles. The variations in the vessel diameter and bifurcation angle complicate the measurement and analysis of blood flow features invasively or non-invasively...

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an established catheter-based imaging modality for the assessment of coronary artery disease and the guidance of stent placement during percutaneous coronary intervention. Manual analysis of large OCT datasets for vessel contours or stent struts detection is time-consuming and unsuitable for real-time applications. In this study, a fully automatic method was developed for detection of both vessel contours and stent struts. The method was applied to in vitro OCT scans of eight stented silicone bifurcation phantoms for validation purposes...

According to the TASC II and the Russian National Guidelines on management of patients with lower limb arterial diseases, in patients with type C and D lesions of the arterial bed performing aortofemoral bifurcation bypass grafting is preferable. Laparoscopic technique makes it possible to combine advantages of minimally invasive surgery with well-known remote results of open reconstructive operations on the aortoiliac segment. The study included a total of 54 patients undergoing treatment at the Cardiosurgical Department of Clinic No 1 of the Volgograd State Medical University over the period from January 2012 to September 2015...

Acute and chronic cerebral circulatory impairment is a very commonly encountered type of neurological diseases, annually affecting more than six million people worldwide. The absolute majority of all cases are associated with atherosclerosis of cerebral arteries. Surgical intervention in a stenotic lesion of the internal carotid artery (ICA) is a method of preventive treatment with confirmed efficacy. Eversion carotid endarterectomy (ECEA) is currently the most commonly used 'open' operation for this cohort of patients...
