A stent in a false lumen is a common cause of stent occlusion after coronary percutaneous coronary artery intervention therapy, particularly in the culprit lesion of acute myocardial infarction. Here, we present an unusual case of successful recanalization of the proximal right coronary artery with implementation of another stent to crush the previous stent in the false lumen.

Stent expansion and in-stent thrombus sign in the Trevo stent retriever predict recanalization and possible etiology during mechanical thrombectomy: A case series of 50 patients with acute middle cerebral artery occlusion.
The interaction between the stent retriever and clot is a key factor for recanalization during mechanical thrombectomy.
Anomalous origin of left coronary artery (LCA) from the right coronary cusp with an intramural course is usually managed with unroofing of the intramural segment. Available literature demonstrates an ...
The purpose of this study was to compare the stent deformation, obstruction of stent struts at a jailed side branch (SB) ostium, and stent strut malapposition after a repetitive proximal optimizing te...
Even in the drug-eluting stent era, ostial lesion of the right coronary artery (RCA) still remains therapeutic challenge for interventional cardiologists. Case Series Case 1 (76 y.o. male) with angi...

The hypothesis of this study is that coronary angioplasty with stenting of right coronary artery (RCA) chronic total occlusion (CTO) improves myocardium perfusion. Thus a stress-MRI is a m...
The primary objective of the trial is to demonstrate the safety and feasibility of treating coronary artery lesions which have not been previously treated with the TRIMAXX Coronary stent s...
The utilization of everolimus-eluting coronary stents in a coronary artery diseases is effective in reducing both repeat revascularization and major adverse cardiac events within two year ...
The Nordic-Baltic Heart Team Initiative for improved long-term coronary artery revascularization outcome compares quality of life and survival after coronary bypass grafting (CABG) vs. per...
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
