Guiding catheter-induced coronary artery dissection is a rare, but hazardous complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and is associated with the potential risk of impairment of coronary blood flow. Therefore, occurrence of this complication mandates a prompt revascularization procedure. A 68-year-old female patient with acute myocardial infarction caused by total ...

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE:: Large fusiform aneurysms of the distal anterior cerebral territory are extremely rare and can be particularly challenging to treat. The circumferential pathology of fusiform lesions renders stand-alone clip or coil ablation unsatisfactory, and the deep, narrow corridor augments the difficulty of surgical approaches. In this setting, bypass ...

Carotid cavernous fistulas are abnormal communications between the carotid and cavernous vasculature, with potential for serious neurological and ocular sequelae. There is considerable literature on the neuro-radiological management of carotico-cavernous fistula depending upon their flow status. The coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for coronary artery disease (CAD) is a well ...

Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a minimally invasive treatment that can be offered to most patients with an aortic aneurysm. Patients who are rejected from standard EVAR often have more extensive aortic pathology and more medical comorbidities. The advent of fenestrated and branched stent grafts gives us an opportunity to ...

Mitral regurgitation is a frequent finding in patients with aortic stenosis scheduled for aortic valve replacement. Detection of mitral regurgitation in such patients has important implications, as it can independently affect functional status and prognosis. When mitral regurgitation is moderate to severe, a decision to operate on both valves should ...

After initial right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction, replacement of the pulmonary valve (PVR) with a bioprosthetic valve may be performed. Bioprosthetic valves fail (PVF) and require repeat replacement. Identification of risk factors for PVF would be useful for clinicians choosing among various options for the initial PVR. We retrospectively analyzed ...

Aortic stiffness measurement is well recognized as an independent predictor of cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. Recently, a simple method has been proposed for the evaluation of the local aortic stiffness (AoStiff) using a non-invasive bioelectrical impedance (BI) technique. This approach relies on a novel interpretation of the arterial stiffness where ...

Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is a rapidly evolving technology for performing noninvasive coronary angiography. Despite good sensitivity and specificity for detecting significant coronary artery disease in patients, disagreement on individual coronary arterial stenosis severity is common between MDCT and the current gold standard, conventional angiography. The reasons for such disagreement ...

In calcific aortic valve disease, fibrotic and calcific lesions form focally in the fibrosa layer of the valve leaflets. Layer-specific pathosusceptibility suggests that the fibrosa microenvironment is permissive to pathological development. The cellular microenvironment in the aortic valve is defined by a variety of biomechanical-, biochemical-, and extracellular-mediated factors, some ...
