Rescue Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for a Lethal "Jailed" Septal Perforator Branch to Resolve Delayed Complete Atrioventricular Block.

Int Heart J 2019 Feb 22. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Department of Cardiology, Nishinomiya Municipal Central Hospital.

Delayed complete atrioventricular (AV) block associated with an occluded septal perforator branch (SPB) is an uncommon complication after performing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD). Here we report the case of a 74-year-old man who underwent elective PCI for proximal LAD complicated with occlusion of the first major SPB and developed a complete AV block 78 hours after PCI was performed. The patient received a temporary transvenous pacemaker via the jugular vein and successfully underwent balloon angioplasty of the lethal "jailed" SPB, resulting in recovery from the complete AV block.

Effects of Catheterization on Artery Function and Health: When Should Patients Start Exercising Following Their Coronary Intervention?

Sports Med 2019 Mar;49(3):397-416

Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Science, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, L3 3AF, UK.

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a leading cause of death worldwide, and percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography (PTCA) and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI; angioplasty) are commonly used to diagnose and/or treat the obstructed coronaries. Exercise-based rehabilitation is recommended for all CAD patients; however, most guidelines do not specify when exercise training should commence following PTCA and/or PCI. Catheterization can result in arterial dysfunction and acute injury, and given the fact that exercise, particularly at higher intensities, is associated with elevated inflammatory and oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction and a pro-thrombotic milieu, performing exercise post-PTCA/PCI may transiently elevate the risk of cardiac events.

[Coronary restenosis].

Herz 2019 Feb;44(1):35-39

Katholisches Klinikum Mainz, Mainz, Deutschland.

Coronary restenosis is the answer of the arterial wall to a mechanical violation through balloon angioplasty, bare-metal (BM) stent implantation or rotational atherectomy through repeated narrowing. It has great clinical and prognostic relevance and occurs in approximately 30% of non-coated stents and in 10% of coated coronary stents. The wound healing process that precedes restenosis includes inflammatory reactions, cellular proliferation and remodeling of the arterial wall, where protein synthesis of the extracellular matrix is initiated.

Cardiology, Staten Island University Hospital / Northwell Health, Staten Island, USA.

A left main coronary artery (LMCA) iatrogenic dissection is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of coronary angioplasty. It can range from a simple tear in the artery wall to a severe dissection, causing complete blood flow obstruction. We report the case of a 63-year-old male patient who was presented to our catheterization laboratory following a positive stress test. Read More
