Despite the increase in use of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in left main coronary disease, its efficacy compared with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is unclear. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to assess the optimal revascularization strategy. Our search yielded 8 studies reporting relevant outcomes that were pooled using the inverse variance method, and the hazard ratio (HR) was calculated. The primary outcome was all-cause mortality, myocardial infarction (MI), or stroke (major adverse cardiac events [MACE]), and the secondary outcome was death/MI/stroke/repeat revascularization (expanded MACE)...

BACKGROUND: Chronic dissection of the thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta as sequela of a prior type A or B dissection is a challenging problem that requires close radiographic surveillance and prompt operative intervention in the presence of symptoms or aneurysm formation. Open repair of chronic thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic dissection using deep hypothermia has been our preferred method to treat this complex pathology. The advantages of this technique include organ and spinal cord protection, the flexibility to extend the repair proximally into the arch, and the ability to limit ischemia to all vascular beds...

BACKGROUND: Angioplasty on the radial artery have been performed with good success rates in patients with critical hand ischemia. We sought to assess the feasibility and safety of radial angioplasty on complex radial access in patients undergoing coronary angiography. METHODS/MATERIAL: A prospective series of procedures with complex radial/ulnar access to which radial-ulnar angioplasty (RU-A) was performed. We set goals of efficacy and safety that included the success rate of the procedure (need for ¨Crossover femoral¨) and the existence of radial pulse at one month...

BACKGROUND: In the SYNTAX (Synergy Between Percutaneous Coronary Intervention With Taxus and Cardiac Surgery) trial, patients with 3-vessel or left main coronary artery disease (CAD) had improved long-term outcomes with coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery compared with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES), improvements driven mainly by differences in myocardial infarction and repeat revascularization. OBJECTIVES: This study compared the long-term quality-of-life benefits of DES-PCI versus CABG for patients with 3-vessel or left main CAD...

EDITORIAL
Yader Sandoval, Emmanouil S Brilakis
Rotational atherectomy is performed infrequently (∼3.5%) during chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for two indications: treatment of balloon uncrossable and balloon undilatable lesions. Use of rotational atherectomy in CTO PCI was associated with high success and acceptable complication rates. Rotational atherectomy remains a "must have" device for interventional cardiologists performing complex PCI.

The radial approach to endovascular procedures has a series of learning curves: diagnostic heart catheterization, low-risk settings and "straightforward" percutaneous coronary intervention, high-risk settings, and complex coronary intervention, and peripheral vascular angiography and intervention. For diagnostic and low-risk interventional procedures, incremental improvements in technical success and safety are observed in the initial 200 procedures for most operators compared to highly experienced operators...

BACKGROUND: The optimal antithrombotic regimen for urgent percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) following thrombolytic therapy for ST segment myocardial infarction (STEMI) is currently unknown. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of all patients referred to our institution from January 2005 to July 2014 who underwent urgent PCI within 24 hr after receiving thrombolytic therapy. The patients were divided into three cohorts based on the anticoagulation strategy during PCI-bivalirudin, heparin alone or heparin plus Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor (GPI)...

Dissection and re-entry (DR) techniques have played a key role in the increase of success rates of chronic total occlusion (CTO) recanalization. DR usually allows wiring complex occlusions, even in case of important calcification. In extreme cases, such as in balloon failure-to-cross, rotational atherectomy (RA) might be decisive. However, according to experts' recommendations, RA should not be performed in dissection planes because of the high risk of perforation and further extending the dissection, so that its use after DR might be limited...

BACKGROUND: Intracranial arterial atherosclerosis represents a common cause of stroke. Despite aggressive and optimal medical management, many patients will unfortunately suffer additional cerebrovascular events. The role of endovascular intervention for intracranial atherosclerotic disease continues to be uncertain, particularly in regard to extensive, symptomatic stenosis. CASE DESCRIPTION: We present a case of a 42-year-old male with a complex medical history who presented with recurrent ischemic stroke in the ipsilateral hemisphere despite optimal medical management...

AIMS: To examine the prevalence, clinical outcomes and procedural characteristics of PCI complicated by CAP in a contemporary patient population. METHODS AND RESULTS: Procedural records of 39,115 patients undergoing PCI between 2005- 2016 were reviewed. CAP affected 149 cases (0.37%). The prevalence of CAP increased from 0.31% in 2005 to 0.45% in 2016 (p=0.03) reflecting an increase in more complex PCI (from 14% in 2005 to 21% in 2016; p<0.0001). CAP was associated with increased all-cause mortality (23...

Coronary trifurcation lesions are a complex subset of lesions and are substantially more complex than bifurcations when treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) because of higher rates of acute periprocedural complications (dissection, myocardial infarction, acute vessel closure) and less effective long-term outcomes (stent thrombosis, restenosis) as compared to non-bifurcation lesions. We present the case of a 73-year-old man who was admitted to our hospital with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis who was found to have a distal left main trifurcation disease as well as porcelain aorta on work-up...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated by primary percutaneous coronary intervention. However, the pathophysiology of AKI in this setting is complex and goes beyond the administration of contrast media. Studies assessing the impact of infarct characteristics on AKI are currently lacking. Therefore, we investigated the association of AKI with myocardial as well as microvascular injury in an initial total of 361 consecutive STEMI patients treated by primary percutaneous coronary intervention...

Foods consist of a large number of different nutrients that are contained in a complex structure. The nature of the food structure and the nutrients therein (i.e., the food matrix) will determine the nutrient digestion and absorption, thereby altering the overall nutritional properties of the food. Thus, the food matrix may exhibit a different relation with health indicators compared to single nutrients studied in isolation. The evidence for a dairy matrix effect was presented and discussed by an expert panel at a closed workshop, and the following consensus was reached: 1) Current evidence does not support a positive association between intake of dairy products and risk of cardiovascular disease (i...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has been validated as a new therapy for patients affected by severe symptomatic aortic stenosis who are not eligible for surgical intervention because of major contraindication or high operative risk. Patient selection for TAVR should be based not only on accurate assessment of aortic stenosis morphology, but also on several clinical and functional data. Multi-Imaging modalities should be preferred for assessing the anatomy and the dimensions of the aortic valve and annulus before TAVR...

OBJECTIVE: Syntax score (SX) has emerged as a reproducible angiographic tool to quantify the extent of coronary artery disease based on location and complexity of each lesion. It has been shown to predict long-term clinical outcomes in patients with left main or multi-vessel disease and recently also in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary PCI. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the syntax score is associated with short-term cardiovascular outcomes in patients treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)...

For the year 2016, more than 20,000 published references can be found in Pubmed when entering the search term "cardiac surgery". Publications last year have helped to more clearly delineate the fields where classic surgery and modern interventional techniques overlap. The field of coronary bypass surgery (partially compared to percutaneous coronary intervention) was enriched by five large prospective randomized trials. The value of CABG for complex coronary disease was reconfirmed and for less complex main stem lesions, PCI was found potentially equal...

Friedrich Wilhelm Mohr from the very beginning of his career as a cardiac surgeon was involved in the refinements of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). At the Leipzig Heart Center, his spirit of early adapting to new technologies inspired the entire team and led to a matchless scientific atmosphere to find solutions to improve almost all fields of cardiac surgery, including CABG. In combination with a tremendous number of patients with indications for isolated coronary artery bypass Prof. Mohr as the surgical principle investigator and the Leipzig Heart Center were able to include patients in the Synergy between PCI [percutaneous coronary intervention] with Taxus and Cardiac Surgery (SYNTAX) trial, the first randomized trials comparing CABG and PCIs using the drug-eluting stents...

Coronary artery anomalies constitute a diverse group of abnormalities, ranging from anatomic variants to those having hemodynamic consequences. This review focuses on major anomalies that have clinical implications requiring treatment, including anomalous origin of the coronary artery from the opposite sinus with interarterial course specifically with an intramural course, coronary artery origin from the pulmonary artery, and coronary artery fistula. Comprehensive imaging evaluation is necessary to precisely delineate the anatomy as well as pathophysiologic aspects of the anomaly before determining treatment options for a specific patient...
