Right ventricle intramural hematoma is a rare complication of right coronary artery PCI. With the increased uptake and prevalence of complex chronic total occlusion interventions, unusual complications will continue to occur; sharing and raising the awareness of these complications is of paramount importance.

A 74-year-old man was transferred to our hospital for heart failure and ventricular tachycardia. Left ventricular aneurysm of a huge size( 6×9 cm) was found on the imaging test, and was suspected to ...
Nanoparticles (NPs) can be used to locally deliver anti-restenosis drugs when they are infused directly to the injured arteries after intervention procedures such as angioplasty. However, the efficacy...
Ventricular septal rupture is an uncommon fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction. In rare cases, the rupture can extend into the right ventricular free wall and cause intramyocardial dissec...
The efficacy and applied value of endoscopic hematoma evacuation vs. external ventricular drainage (EVD) in the treatment of severe ventricular hemorrhage (IVH) were explored and compared. From Jan. 2...
Left ventricular free wall rupture is a feared complication of acute myocardial infarction typically presenting with cardiogenic shock. We present a case of spontaneous coronary artery dissection with...
To compare the efficacy of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in patients with multiple vessel coronary heart disease.
The intention of this trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of Drug Eluting Balloon (DEB) application (SeQuent Please) to the side branch in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) o...
To assess the relative long-term safety and efficacy of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery in patients with multivessel d...
Aim of the study is to evaluate the benefits from adjunctive intracoronary administration of adenosin in elective patients undergoing coronary angioplasty.
Ischemic heart disease, or coronary heart disease, covers a set of pathologies due to insufficient oxygen supply to the myocardium due to the development of atherosclerosis in one or more ...
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
A congenital cardiomyopathy that is characterized by infiltration of adipose and fibrous tissue into the RIGHT VENTRICLE wall and loss of myocardial cells. Primary injuries usually are at the free wall of right ventricular and right atria resulting in ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
