Limited study has detailed the procedural outcomes and utilization of contemporary coronary guidewires and microcatheters designed for chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous revascularization and with application of modern techniques.
Limited data are available regarding the long-term clinical outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using second-generation drug-eluting stents (DESs) versus coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for the treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) with chronic total occlusion (CTO). We compared the clinical outcomes of patients with multivessel CAD including CTO lesions treated with PCI using DESs versus CABG.
With the evolution of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) technique and equipment, the success rate of CTO PCI has improved over the years. We examined the failed cases in this expert registry and looked at the mode of failure.
to assess the feasibility and safety of the left distal transradial artery (LDTRA) approach using a 7 Fr Glidesheath Slender for chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs).
Chronic total occlusion continues to be a challenging lesion subset for percutaneous coronary intervention.
This image series shows how bypass grafts may tent the vessel to which they are anastomosed, potentially changing the expected course of the native coronary vessel. This fact must be taken into account during CTO-PCI, and this case emphasizes the importance of careful analysis of coronary anatomy with several angiographic projections.
The effect of chronic kidney disease (CKD) on in-hospital outcomes of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has received limited study.
Mechanisms underlying increased mortality in patients with chronic total occlusion (CTO) of a non-infarct-related artery (non-IRA) are unknown. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is uniquely suited to provide important mechanistic and pathophysiological information on myocardial damage and reperfusion injury. Aim of this study was to investigate the association of a CTO in a non-IRA with myocardial damage assessed by CMR in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
Posteroseptal accessory pathways account for 34.5% of the total. Of these, 36% are located within the coronary sinus (CS). Its ablation requires technical alternatives to avoid damage to surrounding tissues, especially branches of the right coronary artery.
BACKGROUND The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the level of autophagy and apoptosis enzymes in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Furthermore, we investigated the role of autophagy and apoptosis in the progression of coronary collateral and coronary total occlusion (TO). MATERIAL AND METHODS We enrolled 115 patients in this prospective, observational, controlled study, who were categorized into 3 groups as follows: group 1, patients with chronic TO (n=49); group 2, patients with acute TO...
Recent studies suggested that chronic total occlusion of the coronary artery increased risk of ventricular arrhythmia (VA) and all-cause mortality in ischaemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) patient who underwent implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) implantation. We aim to demonstrate an association between a presence of CTO and poor cardiovascular outcome in ICD implanted ICM patients.
The plasma-derived atherogenic index (AIP) is associated with an increasing risk for cardiovascular diseases. Whether an increased AIP may predict the complexity of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusion (CTO), according to available research, has never been investigated before.
Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, the role of Lp(a) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients is not well understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between Lp(a) levels and the presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and the severity of coronary artery stenosis (CAS) in patients with stage 3-5 CKD.
Endovascular therapy has been increasingly recommended for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke with large vessel occlusion of the anterior circulation. However, occlusions of the distal cerebral artery are not uncommon and may cause clinical deficits, especially when combined with ipsilateral chronic large vessel occlusion. Therefore, in this patient population, the recognition of chronic occlusion and recanalization of the distal occlusive artery might be of great value for flow compensation.
Percutaneous coronary intervention in chronic total occlusion is a rapidly evolving area, being considered the last frontier of interventional cardiology. In recent years, the development of new techniques and equipment, as well as the training of specialized personnel, increased their success rates, making it the most predictable procedure available. Although the number of randomized and controlled studies is still limited, results from large multicentered registries allow us to safely offer this intervent...
Contrast volume is associated with the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN), and CIN risk could be particularly high in chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Our aim was to evaluate the incidence of CIN in patients who underwent CTO versus non-CTO PCI. All PCIs performed at our institution from January 2012 to December 2016 were included in this study. CIN was defined as an increase of ≥0.3 mg/dl or ≥50% from baseline within 72 hours. Multivariable logistic r...
The study was aimed at assessing remote (up to 42 months) results of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and revealing flowmetric and angiographic predictors of coronary bypass graft occlusion.
At present, minimal invasive direct coronary artery grafting is the least invasive nonrobotic surgical approach to revascularize the left anterior descending artery with the left internal mammary artery. Total endoscopic coronary bypass grafting is performed with the help of a telemanipulator ("robot"). A prospective proof-of-concept study was initiated to investigate a nonrobotic total endoscopic coronary bypass grafting approach.
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.
Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is a catastrophic complication of spontaneous (type 1) acute myocardial infarction (AMI). This study sought to clarify the angiographic coronary characteristics related to out-of-hospital VF in AMI patients. We retrospectively reviewed 464 consecutive cases of suspicious AMI, including type 1 AMI, with or without out-of-hospital VF. In addition to patient demographics, proximal left coronary artery (LCA) disease, multivessel disease (MVD), and chronic total occlusion (CTO) were...
A large percentage of patients with non-ST-segment acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) present with acute total occlusion (TO) of some major epicardial vessel that does not generate electrocardiographic changes. Ongoing research into the methods of accurately predicting acute TO have not yielded great success. The present study aimed to evaluate the predictive value of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) for the presence of acute TO of the culprit artery in patients with NSTE-ACS.
A wider angle between the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and left circumflex coronary artery (LCX) has been suggested to induce plaque formation in the arterial system via changes in shear stress. However, the relationship between the left main coronary artery (LM)-LAD angle and LAD stenosis has not been investigated. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the associations between the LM-LAD and LAD-LCX angles and LAD stenosis.
Acute vessel closure due to dissection is a known complication of percutaneous coronary intervention and can be challenging to treat, especially if guidewire position is lost. Re-entering into the distal true lumen is commonly done during chronic total occlusion interventions, as part of antegrade dissection strategies. We report two cases of acute vessel closure and guidewire position loss in which the Stingray LP system was successfully used to advance a guidewire into the distal true lumen and recanalize...
Bilateral congenital coronary artery fistulae complicated with a giant coronary artery aneurysm is a very rare condition. A coronary artery aneurysm is a coronary artery dilatation that exceeds the diameter of normal adjacent segments or the diameter of the patient's largest coronary vessel by 1.5 times. The complications associated with a coronary artery aneurysm include thrombosis, embolization, rupture, vasospasm, congestive heart failure and infectious endocarditis. We report on a 63-year-old woman pres...
