Key Points The benefits of nitroglycerin are numerous, from ensuring accurate interpretation of diagnostic angiograms to treatment of coronary spasm and support of PCIs in simple or complex lesion types. The founders of the field were convinced that no coronary arteriography should be considered complete unless a vasodilator is used at some point during the study. This recommendation is valid. The guidelines should change to include administration of intracoronary nitroglycerin.

Authors: Carrier M, Klok FA Abstract The introduction of computed tomographic pulmonary angiography and its recent increasing availability has led to a significant rise in its use to help clinicians diagnose acute pulmonary embolism (PE). This has led to a significant increase in the incidence of PE diagnoses. Simultaneously, the case fatality rate of acute PE has been decreasing and no significant change in its mortality has been noted, suggesting that the additional PE diagnoses are less severe and these patients might not benefit from anticoagulation therapy. This also seems to be correlated with an increase in ...

Authors: Latsios G, Mpompotis G, Tsioufis K, Toutouzas K, Skalidis E, Synetos A, Avramidis D, Tousoulis D Abstract The incidence of Cardiac (Cardio-Pulmonary) Arrest (CA) in the Catheterization Laboratory is not common. However, not only does it happen occasionally but its frequency tends to increase due to the increase in the overall number and complexity of interventions performed by interventional cardiologists. Therefore, certified knowledge and application of the ALS (Advanced Life Support) protocols by trained Catheterization Laboratory staff is imperative in many countries, by local Hospital standards and al...

Conclusion These results suggest that venous phase T2EL are not as responsive to embolization as standard T2EL and emphasize the need to follow patients with venous phase T2EL closely.
