Successful intravascular lithotripsy for severely calcified left anterior descending coronary artery stenosis.

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of heavily calcified stenoses remains a significant challenge to interventional cardiologists. Over the last years, high-pressure balloons, cutting balloons as well as atherectomy devices have been used to tackle such lesions. Lithoplasty is a method of lesion modification using intravascular lithotripsy (IVL, shockwave) to treat particularly calcified coronary lesions. A 55-year-old male without previous cardiac history reported chest pain and was found to have ECG ...

Self-harm in adults: a comparison between the middle-aged and the elderly.

In New Zealand, men aged 45-49 years and 85 years and above have one of the highest suicide rates.

The aims of this study are to: (i) characterise middle-aged (45-64 years) and older-aged people (65+ years) who have self-harmed; and (ii) determine whether there are differences between the two age groups.
