In-Stent Restenosis with "Inflammatory" Neointima Following Everolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation. Int Heart J. 2018 Jul 15;: Authors: Tsuji Y, Koide M, Katsura K, Fujita H, Ishibashi-Ueda H, Otsuka F Abstract A 53-year-old male presented with acute myocardial infarction and was subsequently implanted with a 4.0 × 28 mm everolimus-eluting platinum chromium stent in his proximal left anterior descending artery. Eight months after the implantation, he developed exertional angina and underwent coronary angiography, which revealed significant in-stent restenosis (ISR). Percutaneous coronary...

CONCLUSIONS: In an unselected population admitted for elective PCI or NSTEMI in real-world clinical practice, administration of a P2Y12 inhibitor only after coronary angiography is associated with a low rate of ischemic and bleeding events at 30 days.

Authors: Basavarajaiah S, Brown A, Naganuma T, Gajendragadkar P, McCormick L, West N Abstract BACKGROUND: Use of the radial approach for PCI procedures is increasing due to lower rates of access-site complications/bleeding, and patient preference. However, femoral operators switching may be discouraged by the learning curve and by anatomical issues that may complicate the procedure. We aimed to define the frequency of anatomic variants and success rates during transradial access for PCI. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 2588 cases of PCI attempted by the radial route; radial/brachial and subclavian angiogra...

CONCLUSIONS: Integrated therapy could significantly improve proteinuria by reducing this LN patients' urinary total protein, which further implies that CHM may have a protective effect against the progression of LN in this patient. PMID: 30012398 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Lu Y, Liu R, Zha L, Yuan S, Tian L, Chen J, Huang L, Yang Z Abstract Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute systemic vasculitis that predominantly affects children and can result in coronary artery lesions (CALs). Thrombomodulin (TM) is a critical cofactor in the protein C anticoagulant system. The TM C1418T (rs1042579) polymorphism is associated with a high risk of cardiac-cerebral vascular diseases. But the association of the TM C1418T polymorphism with susceptibility to KD, CAL formation, and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) resistance is still unclear. In our study, we examined the TM C1418T polymorphism i...

Authors: Suzuki T, Miyakoshi S, Nanba A, Uchiyama T, Kawamoto K, Aoki S Abstract Ibrutinib (IBR) covalently binds to the active site of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) and is used for the treatment of relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Approximately 5-10% of CLL is complicated by autoimmune cytopenia (AIC), such as autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA). Several cases of AIC have reportedly demonstrated improvement during IBR treatment. However, in our case, the patient developed AIHA during oral IBR treatment. As AIHA is exacerbated by the increased number of CLL cells in the peripheral blood, it m...

Conclusion: In treating this aneurysm via the pterional approach, selection of approach side it is critical to preserve prevent the patency of the accessory ACA and to simultaneously perform aneurysm clipping without leaving a neck remnant. Selecting the optimal approach based on preoperative neuroimaging of which side will allow both these actions is important. PMID: 30009084 [PubMed]

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), initially used for evaluation of intraprocedural complications such as hemorrhage, has evolved to provide details of implanted devices such as flow diverters. The study aim is to present our experience in using CBCT with intra-arterial injection and provide a step-by-step approach for postprocessing in a practical protocol for daily use. IRB approval was obtained, and the neurointerventional database was retrospectively reviewed from July 2012 to June 2017. Patients who underwent cone beam intra-arterial CT angiography for evaluation of implanted flow diverter devices were reviewed. Pa...
