The CHA2DS2-VASc (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age ≥75 years, diabetes mellitus, previous stroke, vascular disease, age 65-74 years, female gender) score is used to estimate thromboembolic risk in atrial fibrillation (AF). Its usefulness in predicting in-stent restenosis (ISR) is unknown. We evaluated the predictive value of the CHA2DS2-VASc score in AF-free patients who have undergone stent implantation. A total of 1350 patients who underwent coronary angiography and successful bare-metal stent implantation were analyzed...

Kounis syndrome is defined as the coincidental occurrence of an acute coronary syndrome with hypersensitivity reactions following an allergic event. The three reported variants of Kounis syndrome are vasospastic allergic angina, allergic myocardial infarction and stent thrombosis with occluding thrombus. The syndrome is caused by various inflammatory mediators. The pathophysiological characteristics of Kounis syndrome involve coronary artery spasm and/or atheromatous plaque erosion or rupture during an allergic reaction...

This case illustrates an unusual and fatal complication after endovascular treatment of type B aortic dissection and highlights the role of echocardiography in the early diagnosis of complications. In this case, a patient with previous diagnosis of chronic type B aortic dissection and moderate aortic regurgitation underwent endovascular repair of the proximal descending aorta and conservative surgical correction of the aortic valve. On early postoperative, a transesophageal echocardiogram and aortic angiotomography demonstrated proximal endoleak by contrast extravasation around the proximal graft attachment site, causing compression of the stent in its middle portion, resulting in narrowing with reduced cross-sectional area...

BACKGROUND: Alongside the evolution of interventional endoscopy, the need for a more sophisticated closure tool tailored to the treatment of new challenging indications has been increasing rapidly. METHODS: We here present our collected data on 262 Over-The-Scope-Clip (OTSC®) placements in a total of 233 interventions at our institution. Follow-up was focused on clinically lasting success with regards to different indications. RESULTS: Immediate success of OTSC® treatment was observed in 87...

BACKGROUND: Ureteral double J stent are routinely applied for urologic patients although stent-related symptoms are common. Several attempts have been reported to minimize these symptoms. OBJECTIVE: To compare Tolterodine, Tamsulosin, and placebo effects on double J stent-related symptoms. MATERIAL AND METHOD: In all, 125 patients (82 males and 43 females) with double J stent were randomly divided into three groups (group 1, n: 42, group2, n: 40 and group 3, n: 43)...

INTRODUCTION: Although surgical endarterectomy remains the treatment of choice for carotid artery stenosis, stenting plays an important role as an alternative treatment modality, especially in high-risk patients. The actual safety profile associated with stenting procedures is probably better than that reported by randomized controlled trials. AIM: To assess the safety of stent implantations in extracranial arteries supplying the brain, and also to identify risk factors associated with this procedure...

OBJECTIVE: The effects of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-guided drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in patients with complex coronary artery lesions remains to be controversial. This study sought to evaluate the outcomes of IVUS guidance in these patients. METHODS: The EMBASE, Medline, and other internet sources were searched for relevant articles. The primary endpoint was major adverse cardiac events (MACE), including all-cause mortality, myocardial infarction (MI), and target-vessel revascularization (TVR)...

BACKGROUND: The bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) represents a novel technology designed to overcome the long-term limitations of metallic coronary stent implantation in percutaneous coronary intervention. In this context, primary percutaneous coronary intervention in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) could be a preferred scenario for BVS implantation. Nevertheless, data on efficacy and safety are lacking in this specific subset of patients. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review to examine the safety and efficacy of BVS use in STEMI patients...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic pancreatic injuries are rare and present diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties. We evaluated the usefulness of endoscopic retrograde pancreatography and transpapillary pancreatic stent in the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic trauma patients. METHODS: We reviewed medical records of 83 pancreas trauma patients who underwent endoscopic retrograde pancreatography for the suspicion of pancreas duct injury between January 1983 and December 2016...

A 79-year-old male who had a history of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) received coronary angiography (CAG), because of angina pectoris. CAG showed in-stent restenosis of the paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES). Since the devices could not pass the lesion, we performed rotational atherectomy. Although we could not identify the calcified lesion by the optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) findings because of strong attenuation, the intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) image showed the superficial calcification...

A 62-year-old woman was admitted with chest pain of two hours' duration, ECG changes in the precordial leads and left ventricular ejection fraction of 30% on the echocardiogram. Emergent catheterization demonstrated severe flow disturbance in the left coronary artery. An intra-aortic balloon pump and a drug-eluting stent were implanted. However, the flow disturbance persisted. Optical coherence tomography followed by intravascular ultrasound provided crucial data on the mechanism and helped to optimize treatment in this critical patient...

OBJECTIVE: Preloaded endovascular delivery systems expand the anatomic eligibility for complex aortic repair by requiring only one iliac access vessel and providing a stable platform for guiding sheaths into challenging target vessels. This article reports the lessons learned and early clinical outcomes using a modified preloaded delivery system for fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) in three aortic centers in Europe. METHODS: From October 2015 to March 2016, consecutive patients presenting with extensive aortic aneurysm treated with a modified preloaded FEVAR were prospectively enrolled from three high volume European aortic centers...

BACKGROUND: Severe aortic tortuosity of the access route often prevents successful complete exclusion of an aneurysm in thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). CASE PRESENTATION: We performed antegrade TEVAR on a 79-year-old man with right hemiparesis. We deployed the stent graft from the ascending aorta with a tube graft conduit to treat a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm associated with rickets and multiple comorbidities. Although the application of a ministernotomy diminished the potential advantages of endovascular treatment in view of less invasive surgery, antegrade TEVAR using an ascending aortofemoral through-and-through wire technique was a good option in this patient because a conventional retrograde approach was not feasible due to his severely tortuous aorta...

This study presents evidence on the role of emotions in the monetary evaluation of health technologies, namely, drug-eluting stents (DES) in our case. It is shown that subjects who are very afraid of having to undergo an angioplasty are: (a) less sensitive to the size of the risk reduction provided by DES and (b) willing to pay more. The lack of scope sensitivity questions the normative validity of the responses of highly emotional subjects. We provide evidence of this effect using what we call the cognitive-emotional random utility model and the responses of a face-to-face, computer-assisted personal interview survey conducted in a representative sample of the Spanish general population (n = 1663)...

BACKGROUND: To report the technique and clinical outcome of subintimal re-entry in chronic iliac artery occlusion by using a Colapinto transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) needle under rotational angiography (cone-beam computed tomography; CT) imaging guidance. METHODS: Patients with chronic iliac artery occlusion with earlier failed attempts at conventional percutaneous recanalization during the past 5 years were enrolled in our study. In these patients, an ipsilateral femoral access route was routinely utilized in a retrograde fashion...
