Florida Hospital Carrollwood unveils new cath lab for heart patients (Photos)

Florida Hospital Carrollwood has taken the wraps off its new hybrid catheterization lab for heart patients. The cath lab and a future emergency room expansion were funded in part through a $5 million gift to the hospital foundation by Dr. Kiran Patel and his wife, Dr. Pallavi Patel, health care entrepreneurs and philanthropists. The physicians began their medical careers at the Carrollwood facility and have seen it grow from a 10-bed hospital with a mobile cath lab to one with 120 beds and a state-of-the-art…

ConclusionsISF can be induced safely in a variety of vascular beds using high‐pressure balloons both longitudinally or through side cells. Longitudinal ISF only rarely requires immediate placement of a new stent; however, late restenosis may occur, requiring re‐stenting.

ConclusionsPCA access for pediatric interventional catheterization appears to be safe with a very low rate of mild stenosis, and very few complications. Follow‐up outcomes in our series are excellent, with a CA patency rate of 100%, even after multiple procedures. Mild CA stenosis was not associated with patient size or sheath introducer caliber. While the acute results from percutaneous CA catheterization have proven safe in recent literature, longer‐term outcomes remain unreported. At our institution, the outcomes following percutaneous carotid access are associated with an excellent patency rate of 100%, even after ...

Abstract ObjectiveTo evaluate immediate and long‐term clinical outcomes of stenting for middle aortic syndrome (MAS) caused by Takayasu arteritis (TA). BackgroundStudies of endovascular stenting for the treatment of MAS caused by TA are scare. MethodsData from 48 consecutive TA patients (mean 33.3 ± 12.6 years) with MAS treated by stenting in our institution between January 2010 and July 2016 were collected and retrospectively analyzed. Thirty‐day and long‐term follow‐up clinical outcomes after aorta stenting were assessed. ResultsStenting was successful in all patients. The mean stenosis and p...

Abstract ObjectivesWe aimed to evaluate the incidence and midterm clinical outcomes of left ventricular obstruction (LVO) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). BackgroundsLVO is occasionally unmasked following valve replacement for severe aortic stenosis. However, little is known about the prevalence and effects of LVO after TAVI. MethodsA total of 158 patients who underwent TAVI in our center between October 2013 and November 2015 received echocardiographic evaluations at baseline; before hospital discharge; and at 3, 6, and 12 months after TAVI. LVO was defined as a peak pressure gradient>30 mm Hg. Res...

We examined the prevalence, clinical and angiographic characteristics, and procedural outcomes of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) for balloon undilatable CTOs in a contemporary multicenter US registry. ResultsBetween 2012 and 2017 data on balloon undilatable lesions were available for 425 consecutive CTO PCIs in 415 patients in whom guidewire crossing was successful: 52 of 425 CTOs were balloon undilatable (12%). Mean patient age was 65 ± 10 years and most patients were men (84%). Patients with balloon undilatable CTOs were more likely to be diabetic (67 vs. 41%, P

Abstract BackgroundTranscatheter, bilateral branch pulmonary artery (PA) valve implantation is a novel treatment for patients with severe pulmonary insufficiency and oversized right ventricle (RV) outflow tract. There is scarce data on efficacy and safety of this approach. MethodsThis was a retrospective study of 8 patients with repaired tetralogy of fallot (TOF) who underwent bilateral branch PA valve implantation. Demographics, echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, and axial imaging data were reviewed. Variables were compared by a paired sample t‐test. ResultsAll patients were adult sized (weight 43–99 kg) w...
