Excimer laser coronary atherectomy (ELCA) has been used for the treatment of complex percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) such as in-stent restenosis (ISR). However, little information was provided about the clinical outcomes after treatment with ELCA for ISR of drug-eluting stents (DES). This study aimed to investigate the long-term clinical outcomes after PCI with ELCA for ISR of DES.A total of 81 consecutive patients with 87 lesions who underwent PCI for ISR of DES were included. Patients were classified into a PCI with ELCA group (23 patients with 24 lesions) and a PCI without ELCA group (58 patients with 63 lesions)...

Background: Rotational atherectomy (RA) is used to improve procedural success of percutaneous catheter interventions (PCIs) of complex and heavily calcified coronary lesions. We report the clinical experience and outcomes in our institution with the use of RA, followed by drug-eluting stent implantation. Materials and Methods: Data of 81 patients treated with PCI and adjunctive RA were analyzed. Clinical follow-up for the occurrence of major adverse events (MAEs) was obtained in all patients and correlated with significant variables using multivariate Cox proportional hazards analysis...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the outcomes of subadventitial stenting (SS) around occluded stents for recanalizing in-stent chronic total occlusions (IS-CTOs). BACKGROUND: There is little evidence on the outcomes of SS for IS-CTO. METHODS: We examined the outcomes of SS for IS-CTO PCI at 14 centers between July 2011 and June 2017, and compared them to historical controls recanalized using within-stent stenting (WSS). Target-vessel failure (TVF) on follow-up was the endpoint of this study, and was defined as a composite of cardiac death, target-vessel myocardial infarction, and target-vessel revascularization...

A 61-year-old man with a history of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the mid right coronary artery (RCA) with a drug eluting stent (DES), presented with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. Coronary angiography demonstrated complex disease of the distal RCA as well as in-stent stenosis of the previously placed mid RCA stent. The patient underwent bifurcation PCI of the distal RCA followed by attempted intervention with a DES on the mid RCA lesion. The stent could not cross the lesion and eventually became dissociated from its delivery system...

The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and apolipoprotein (Apo) B levels and the SYNergy between percutaneous coronary intervention with TAXus and cardiac surgery (SYNTAX) score (SS) in patients with stable angina pectoris. We enrolled 594 patients who were suspected to have coronary heart disease (CHD) and who underwent coronary angiography. Patients were divided into 4 groups based on the SS: normal (SS = 0, n = 154), low SS (SS ≤ 22, n = 210), intermediate SS (22 < SS < 32, n = 122), and high SS (SS ≥ 33, n = 63)...

Liquid chromatography with electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS/MS) technique is gaining more and more attraction as the method of choice for multi-sample analysis. However, it is strongly susceptible to the influence of matrix components. Matrix effects are the main source of substantial losses in detection sensitivity and have to be compensated via complex quantification methods In this work, we introduce a sophisticated quantification method for the LC-ESI-MS/MS analysis of 16 substances in urine samples using a single continuously post-column infused internal standard (PCI-IS) for matrix effect correction...

BACKGROUND: Some reports have demonstrated increased risk with subadventitial chronic total occlusion (CTO) crossing, whereas others suggest equipoise between subadventitial and intraplaque crossing techniques. We sought to clarify the effect of subadventitial lesion crossing on mid-term outcomes of CTO percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies reporting post-discharge outcomes after CTO PCI performed via subadventitial vs...

INTRODUCTION: Assessing the complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD) is clinically important. Vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) is a powerful and the most important regulator of angiogenesis. It has been reported that the anti-angiogenic isoform of VEGF-A (VEGF-A165b) inhibits angiogenesis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the complexities of CAD using the Syntax score (SS) and the levels of circulating total VEGF-A or VEGF-A165b. METHODS: A total of 268 patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were enrolled...

The mechanisms, pathophysiology, and treatment of anemia in coronary artery disease (CAD) are complex. The hemodynamic changes found in the acute anemic state may contribute to progressive arterial wall and left ventricular hypertrophy if the anemic state persists chronically. We will examine the evidence for anemia as an independent risk factor for CAD events and cardiovascular mortality after percutaneous coronary intervention. We will also investigate the thresholds for appropriate blood transfusion in patients with CAD, as well as the cardiovascular outcomes associated with the utilization of a liberal versus conservative blood transfusion strategy...

BACKGROUND: Cytoreduction and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) are complex surgeries with multiple comorbidities. The Clavien-Dindo classification (CDC) is the most commonly used method to report surgical morbidity, but limits it to the highest-grade complication. The Comprehensive Complication Index (CCI) is a score ranging from 0 to 100, calculated using all 30-day complications and their treatment after abdominal surgery. The aim of this study is to assess the CCI's validity in the HIPEC patient population...

BACKGROUND: During percutaneous coronary intervention, "buddy-in-jail" technique is often used to facilitate stent delivery in complex coronary artery lesions. However, the safety and efficacy of this technique when used with different jailed wire and applied in different target vessel lesions remain elusive. The aim of this retrospective study was to analyze the effectiveness of "buddy-in-jail" technique in the tortuous and rigid lesions of both the common and neighboring coronary arteries...

Acute coronary artery dissection is a rare, complex disease occurring particularly in young women without traditional cardiovascular risk factors. The pathophysiology and treatment are different from acute coronary syndrome caused by plaque rupture or erosion. Its clinical presentation may vary from unstable angina to sudden cardiac death. Hence, early detection is crucial to manage the dissection and reduce the mortality and morbidity rates. Most coronary dissections will heal spontaneously, and conservative treatment is recommended for uncomplicated cases...

This study was performed to investigate lesion characteristics and procedural outcomes of re-attempted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO). Prior failure of percutaneous revascularization of CTO has been identified as an independent predictor of failure at subsequent attempts. However, procedural outcomes of re-attempted PCI for CTO have not been elucidated. We evaluated lesion characteristics and procedural outcomes in 310 consecutive patients undergoing CTO-PCI, and compared the results between re-attempted (n = 59) and initial procedures (n = 251)...

Heavily calcified lesions are encountered with increasing frequency during percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). This poses a significant problem as it often leads to suboptimal stent expansion, which in turn is a major cause for stent restenosis and thrombosis. Various technologies have been developed to tackle this. The high-pressure balloon (OPN) seems to be a promising adjunct in treating undilatable lesions. In this concise mini review we highlight the use of HPB and we present the current status of technology implemented in complex PCI cases...

Background: As progress is made in successfully treating cancer, there is increasing need to focus on the risk and complexity of treating cardiovascular events in cancer survivors - thus, the field of onco-cardiology/cardio-oncology has emerged. We examined the differential incidence of cardiovascular events after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with or without cancer. Methods and Results: Participants were divided into a non-cancer group and a cancer group, which consisted of patients who were receiving or had ever received cancer treatment...

In-stent chronic total occlusion (CTO) represents a challenging lesion subset for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and although a true-to-true lumen crossing is the first-line strategy, a subadventitial approach may become necessary. Here we describe a case of successful in-stent right coronary artery CTO-PCI performed with subadventitial crossing, crushing of the occluded stents, and advancement of a mother-and-child catheter to the distal right coronary artery through the subadventitial space to allow stent delivery...

Over the last decade, systems of care for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have evolved to try to improve outcomes and timely access to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). There have also been advances in PCI techniques and adjunctive pharmacotherapies. In this study, we sought to determine temporal changes in practices and clinical outcomes of PCI in patients with STEMI. We prospectively collected data on 8,412 consecutive patients undergoing PCI for STEMI between 2005 and 2016 in the multicenter Melbourne Interventional Group registry...
