AIMS: Iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms of the femoral artery lead to increased morbidity and mortality, especially when surgical treatment is necessary. Manual compression and thrombin injection are commonly used to occlude the pseudoaneurysms. However, in some cases these treatment options are inapplicable or unsuccessful. We introduce a novel technique to interventionally close pseudoaneurysms. METHODS AND RESULTS: Between January 2014 and May 2016, a total of eight iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms of the femoral artery were treated by interventional closure technique after at least one ineffective attempt of manual compression...

BACKGROUND: Iatrogenic acute ascending aortic dissection during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is an exceptionally rare and life-threatening sequel that requires early and accurate diagnosis along with rapid management. No guidelines have yet been established to direct decisions on the different treatment options that can be employed in the setting of acute aortic dissections caused by PCI. However, similar cases have been treated either by intracoronary stenting and conservative management as in localized aortocoronary dissections or by surgical intervention in cases of extensive aortic dissections...

PURPOSE: Coronary artery disease involves the deposition of plaque along the walls of a coronary artery leading to narrowed or blocked vessels (stenosis) and is one of the main causes of death in developed countries. Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is used to reverse stenosis. Restenosis (renarrowing) of the treated vessel is a major complication of PTCA. A metal mesh tube (stent) can be placed inside the vessel to prevent restenosis. Tissue stress incurred during PTCA and stenting can provoke neointimal cell proliferation leading to in-stent restenosis (ISR)...

Two metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) {(Me2NH2)[ZnLi(PTCA)(H2O)]}n·n{3DMF·C4H8O2·4H2O} (1) and {(Me2NH2)[ZnLi(PTCA)]}n·n{3DMF·5H2O} (2) have been constructed from Li-Zn clusters and pyrene-1,3,6,8-tetracarboxylic acid (H4PTCA) under solvothermal conditions. Gas sorption measurements have revealed that the pore of desolvated 2 (2d) can strongly interact with H2 and CO2, with high H2 and CO2 adsorption heats of 15.3 and 51.9 kJ/mol, respectively. Furthermore, 2d can selectively adsorb CO2 over N2 and CH4, with high adsorption selectivity of CO2/N2 and CO2/CH4...

Pt-based heterobimetallic lantern complexes of the form [PtM(SOCR)4(L)] have been shown previously to form intermolecular metallophilic interactions and engage in antiferromagnetic coupling between lanterns having M atoms with open shell configurations. In order to understand better the influence of the carboxylate bridge and terminal ligand on the electronic structure, as well as the metal-metal interactions within each lantern unit, a series of diamagnetic lantern complexes, [PtMg(SAc)4(OH2)] (1), [PtMg(tba)4(OH2)] (2), [PtCa(tba)4(OH2)] (3), [PtZn(tba)4(OH2)] (4), and a mononuclear control (Ph4P)2[Pt(SAc)4] (5) have been synthesized...

A novel sandwich-type biosensor was developed for the electrochemical detection of α-1 antitrypsin (AAT, a recognized biomarker for Alzheimer's disease). The biosensor was composed of 3, 4, 9, 10-perylene tetracarboxylic acid/carbon nanotubes (PTCA-CNTs) as a sensing platform and alkaline phosphatase-labeled AAT antibody functionalized silver nanoparticles (ALP-AAT Ab-Ag NPs) as a signal enhancer. CNTs offer high surface area and good electrical conductivity. Importantly, Ag NPs could increase the amount of ALP on the sensing surface and the ALP could dephosphorylate 4-amino phenyl phosphate (APP) enzymatically to produce electroactive species 4-aminophenol (AP)...

Primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) with the insertion of a stent is a well-established procedure for management of coronary artery disease. Infected pseudoaneurysms following PTCA and stenting are very rare and have poor outcomes if not managed properly. We are presenting a case of a man aged 50 years with infected pseudoaneurysm of the left anterior descending artery following multiple percutaneous interventions for coronary artery disease. In this paper, we have described the presentation, diagnosis and management of this patient and have discussed the aetiology and management options of infected pseudoaneurysm affecting coronary arteries...
