INTRODUCTION: Although biological grafts have been utilized as a vascular conduit in leg bypass for many years, reports of a bovine carotid artery graft (BCAG) in lower extremity revascularization have been scarce. This study analyzed the outcome of lower leg bypass using BCAG. METHODS: A retrospective review of a prospectively collected database of all patients undergoing lower extremity bypass using BCAG from 2002 to 2017 was performed. Clinical outcomes including graft patency and limb salvage were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Medical therapy for asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis (ACAS) may obviate the carotid revascularization, according to recent literature reports, but many studies also considered moderate carotid artery stenosis (50-69% NASCET). This study reviews the most recent series of ACAS focusing on ipsilateral transient ischemic attack (TIA) stroke and annual risk of stroke in patients with ACAS ≥70%, thereby also evaluating the adherence to best medical therapy (BMT). METHODS: A systematic review consisting of all the series of patients with ACAS being treated medically was performed, which was published after 2005...

BACKGROUND: Although drug-eluting stents have dramatically reduced the rates of restenosis and target lesion revascularization, they are associated with stent thrombosis (ST), a catastrophic event likely due to delayed endothelialization and chronic inflammation caused by the polymer and the metal scaffolds. To increase the safety and efficacy of stents, polymer-free dual drug-eluting stents (DDES) have been developed. METHODS: A total 160 stents (Bare-metal stents (BMS), polymer-free probucol stents (PrES), sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) and DDES) were randomly implanted in the coronary arteries of 80 pigs...

OBJECTIVES: To propose a classification system for characterizing angiographic femoropopliteal artery restenosis patterns associated with common endovascular modalities. BACKGROUND: Peripheral artery disease is a worldwide issue affecting millions of people. Despite a myriad of endovascular technologies available to treat peripheral artery disease of the femoropopliteal arteries, restenosis remains a common failure mode. Characterizing common patterns of restenosis is important to discern the potential impact of baseline patient, lesion, and procedural characteristics, as well as treatment modalities on either the primary success or the failure patterns associated with restenosis...

We report a case of severe aortic valve stenosis in a patient with Tangier disease. A 64-year-old female was diagnosed with Tangier disease on the basis of gene mutation. The serum levels of total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein were 124 mg/dl and 4.3 mg/dl, respectively. She had a symptom of dyspnea and echocardiography revealed severe aortic valve stenosis with the maximum gradient of 60.5 mmHg. Chest computed tomography showed severe calcification of the ascending aorta and the aortic root. Aortic valve replacement using a bioprosthetic valve was performed...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The optimal blood pressure (BP) target in patients with a history of acute myocardial infarction (MI) remains as a subject of debate. The 'J curve phenomenon' has been suggested as a target for BP control, however, it is unclear whether this phenomenon can be applied to MI patients. We analyzed patients with acute MI and investigated whether the 'J curve phenomenon' exists in this population. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Data were obtained from a nationwide prospective Korea Acute Myocardial Infarction Registry, which included 10337 patients with acute MI who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) between 2011 and 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Coronary chronic total occlusions (CTOs) are commonly encountered during diagnostic angiograms. With recent advances, especially in experienced centers, success rates with CTO percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have approached 80% or higher. It is important to note that despite these advancements in techniques, CTOs remain difficult to treat. We present a case of a left circumflex artery (LCX) CTO that was successfully revascularized using a microcatheter balloon pinning technique that allowed additional wire support...
