OBJECTIVES To evaluate the renal function in patients with renal transplantation 1 month after treatment of their severe symptomatic mitral regurgitation using transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVRep) using MitraClip (Abbott Cardiovascular). METHODS We enrolled 22 patients with previous history of end-stage renal disease and kidney transplant with severe symptomatic mitral regurgitation (MR) in this study. Each patient was evaluated by the structural heart team and underwent transesophageal ec...
OBJECTIVES To compare vascular closure devices (VCD) with manual compression (MC) in patients on chronic oral anticoagulation (OAC) who undergo diagnostic coronary angiography in terms of vascular access-site complications. METHODS This is a subanalysis of 604 patients that had undergone transfemoral diagnostic coronary angiography and were randomly assigned to arteriotomy closure with either VCDs (intravascular FemoSeal VCD or extravascular EXOSEAL VCD) or MC within the large scale, randomized ...

Objectives null To assess the safety and efficacy of using vascular closure devices (VCDs) in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for left main coronary artery disease (LM-CAD). null Background null VCDs provide rapid hemostasis for patients undergoing PCI with transfemoral access (TFA); however, the safety and efficacy of VCDs continues to be debated. null Methods null We analyzed data from the EXCEL trial in patients with LM-CAD in whom PCI was performed via TFA with vs without VCD. The p...

Background null Given the risk of hemodynamic compromise in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) patients undergoing left heart catheterization (LHC), there is a need for a simple parameter that can predict clinical outcomes. We hypothesize that left ventricular pressure ratio (LVPR), calculated as left ventricle systolic/left ventricle end-diastolic pressure, is a strong predictor of hemodynamic collapse in these patients. null Methods null Retrospective analysis of consecutive ...

OBJECTIVES We sought to test the hypothesis that patients undergoing ultrasound-assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis (USAT) with standard alteplase and heparin dosing would not develop significant depletion of systemic fibrinogen, which may account for the lower risk of bleeding seen in contemporary trials. We also sought to compare the relative outcomes of individuals with submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) undergoing USAT and anticoagulation alone. METHODS Utilizing a single-center prospect...

OBJECTIVES Fractional flow reserve (FFR) pullback is frequently used to assess serially diseased arteries, but has been shown to be inaccurate due to physiological interaction between individual lesions. We evaluated the clinical utility of a novel solution that improves estimation of true FFR contribution of each stenosis in the presence of serial disease. METHODS Ten interventional cardiologists were presented with tiered information for 18 elective patients with serial coronary disease and su...

OBJECTIVES Performing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for fractional flow reserve (FFR) positive coronary lesions improves clinical outcomes and is recommended by international guidelines. It has been hypothesized that lesions with a positive FFR but a preserved coronary flow reserve (CFR) are less likely to be flow limiting and might best be treated medically. We investigated the association of CFR in FFR-positive lesions with clinical outcomes when treated medically, as well as the tr...
In the presence of an equivocal culprit lesion in the context of an acute coronary syndrome, the optical coherence tomography (OCT) scan defines the severity and composition of the plaque, elucidating (as in this pathognomonic case) the mechanism related to plaque rupture. Furthermore, OCT analysis allowed stent implantation with adequate sizing and length, and subsequent final optimization of the result. In the presence of non-unequivocal lesions, in the context of acute coronary syndrome, the ...

BACKGROUND In adults with congenital heart disease, anatomically complex culprit collateral vessels may cause life-threatening hemoptysis and require catheter-based embolization. Techniques using conventional 2-dimensional (2D) fluoroscopy can be challenging. TECHNIQUE We describe a technique using 2D/3-dimensional (3D) image fusion for intraprocedural guidance to embolize aortopulmonary collaterals. Two fluoroscopic images of the thorax at least 30° apart with pigtail catheter in the ascending ...
A 60-year-old asymptomatic woman was admitted to hospital for an invasive evaluation of a patent foramen ovale and a suspected formation within the right atrium. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography excluded both, but instead unveiled a huge "brass knuckle"-like ectasia of the right coronary artery meandering down the lateral wall of the right atrium. Coronary anomalies are common and mostly discovered incidentally. Thus, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches should be guided by th...
