BACKGROUND The GuideLiner catheter extension device is a monorail-type "Child" support catheter that facilitates coaxial alignment with the guide catheter and provides an appropriate back-up force. This device has been developed in the field of coronary intervention, and now is becoming widely applied in the field of endovascular treatment. However, there has been no report on the effectiveness of the guide catheter extension device in percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA). CASE REPORT We encountered a case of atherosclerotic subtotal occlusion at the ostium of the left renal artery...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is becoming widely recognized as an important cause of myocardial infarction, particularly in younger women. Tendency toward conservative management has been primarily based on observational data. Intervention is recommended when coronary blood flow is compromised and high risk features such as left main involvement, ongoing ischemia, or hemodynamic or electrical instability are present. Unlike the atherosclerotic process where the superiority of stenting compared with plain old balloon angioplasty has been established in the acute setting, randomized studies for revascularization strategies for spontaneous coronary dissection are currently lacking...

Interventions targeting renal artery stenoses have been shown to lower blood pressure and preserve renal function. In recent studies, the efficacy of catheter-based percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty with stent placement has been called into question. In the identification of functional coronary lesions, hyperemic measurements have earned a place in daily practice for clinical decision making, allowing discrimination between solitary coronary lesions and diffuse microvascular disease. Next to differences in clinical characteristics, the selection of renal arteries suitable for intervention is currently on the basis of anatomic grading of the stenosis by angiography rather than functional assessment under hyperemia...

Anomalies of the coronary arteries are reported in 1-2% of patients among diagnostic angiogram. Dual origin of a circumflex from both sinuses is extremely rare among them. We report a case of a patient who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention for acute inferior wall myocardial infarction where left coronary injection demonstrated normal obtuse marginal and right coronary injection demonstrated normal right coronary artery (RCA). On further probing, an anomalous left circumflex (LCx) artery was seen arising from RCA ostium which was subsequently cannulated and revascularized by deployment of 2...

Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries can be divided into two broad categories: those that alter myocardial perfusion and those that do not. In coronary anomalies not altering myocardial perfusion, the coronary arteries originate from the aorta, but their origins are in unusual positions. Although myocardial perfusion is normal, the angiographer may have trouble locating them. Patients with an anomalous left main coronary artery arising from the right sinus of Valsalva are presented. The diagnosis was made by coronary angiography, transesophageal echocardiography and multislice computed tomography (MSCT)...

Incidents of broken balloon in a coronary vasculature during percutaneous coronary angioplasty are very rare. Such events in cath-lab may create panic and can be life threatening for patients. Hence, immediate retrieval of broken balloon becomes vital. Here, we report an unusual complication of broken balloon in the mid portion of the left anterior descending coronary artery, which had a calcified and totally occluded in-stent restenotic lesion. The broken balloon was retrieved successfully with no eventual complication using a simple catheter-assisted balloon-supported retrieval technique...

We sought to examine the impact of calcific deposits on the outcomes of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The outcomes of 1,476 consecutive CTO PCIs performed in 1,453 patients (65.5 ± 10 years, 85% male) between 2012 and 2016 at 11 US centers were evaluated. Moderate or severe quantity of calcium was present in 58% of target lesions. Calcified lesions were more tortuous and more likely to have proximal cap ambiguity and interventional collaterals. PCI of moderately/severely calcified CTOs more often required use of the retrograde approach (54% vs 30%, p <0...

BACKGROUND: Small observational studies have indicated better outcome with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance when performing unprotected left main coronary artery (LMCA) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), but the overall picture remains inconclusive and warrants further investigation. We studied the impact of IVUS guidance on outcome in patients undergoing unprotected LMCA PCI in a Swedish nationwide observational study. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients who underwent unprotected LMCA PCI between 2005 and 2014 because of stable coronary artery disease or acute coronary syndrome were included from the nationwide SCAAR (Swedish Coronary Angiography and Angioplasty Registry)...
