Comparison of angiographic and intravascular ultrasound vessel measurements in infra-popliteal endovascular interventions: The below-the-knee calibration study.

Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2021 Sep 16. Epub 2021 Sep 16.

Cardiology, NC Heart and Vascular Research, LLC, UNC School of Medicine, Raleigh, NC, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Endovascular revascularization (ER) via percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and stenting are viable options for revascularization in below-the-knee (BTK) peripheral arterial disease. Two-dimensional angiography has been the standard of practice for estimating vessel size and selecting treatment devices during ER. However, in other vascular territories, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) offers better visualization of the lumen dimensions. Read More

High-Risk Percutaneous Coronary Intervention of Native Coronary Arteries Without Mechanical Circulatory Support in Acute Coronary Syndrome Without Cardiogenic Shock.

Am J Cardiol 2021 Aug 28. Epub 2021 Aug 28.

Section of Interventional Cardiology, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, Washington, District of Columbia. Electronic address:

Widespread utilization of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) for high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains controversial, with a lack of randomized supporting evidence and associated risk of device-related complications. We investigated whether high-risk PCI of native coronary arteries without elective MCS in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is safe and feasible. We performed a single-center, retrospective analysis for ACS patients meeting American College of Cardiology high-risk criteria: unprotected left main disease, last remaining conduit, ejection fraction <35%, 3-vessel coronary artery disease, severe aortic stenosis, or severe mitral regurgitation.

Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Vinayaka Mission's Sankarachariyar Dental College, Vinayaka Mission's Research Foundation (Deemed to be University), Salem, Tamil Nadu, India.

Revascularization of the dental pulp is an emerging regenerative endodontic approach in which a new tissue is formed inside the root canal by induction of blood clot, allowing the continuation in the development of root. In this case report, the effective management of previously fractured immature tooth with the presence of foreign body (wire) inside the canal and radiographic periapical radiolucency had been described. A 17-year-old patient with immature fractured upper left lateral incisor with radiographic evidence of foreign body (wire) inside the canal was treated with removal of wire by H file followed by revascularization protocol that used working length determination, 5.

Department of Radiology, Medical Imaging Center, University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, 9700 RB Groningen, The Netherlands.

Tibio-peroneal trunk (TPT) lesions are usually categorized as 'complex' in anatomical classifications, which leads to the perception that endovascular therapy (EVT) will be challenging and the outcome most likely poor. This multicenter, retrospective cohort study investigates the efficacy of the EVT of TPT lesions in patients with chronic limb threatening ischemia (CLTI) or an infrapopliteal bypass at risk.

Department of Interventional Cardiology, Institute of Cardiology, Jagiellonian University Medical College, John Paul II Hospital, 31-202 Krakow, Poland.

Ischemic event in one arterial territory increases the risk of a subsequent ischemic event. Circulating microRNAs (miRs) emerge as a potential clinical tool to assess risk of subsequent atherothrombotic events such as cardiovascular death (CVD), myocardial infarction (MI) and ischemic stroke (IS). In this prospective study, we searched for athero-specific miRs related to cardiovascular event risk in patients with symptomatic coronary, carotid lesion, or both territories involvements.
