The “double stingray technique” for recanalizing chronic total occlusions with bifurcation at the distal cap
We present the novel “double Stingray technique” for CTOs involving bifurcations, in which the Stingray system is used twice for re‐entry into both vessel branches, followed by two‐stent bifurcation stenting to maintain the patency of both branches.

ConclusionsThe new CoCr-BES showed low rates of MACE, MI, ci-TVR and ST at 9 months, similar to the BES arm in LEADERS.
ute;nyi J Abstract Mortality in type 1 diabetes, although showing a declining trend, is significantly higher than standard mortality. The case study focuses on a woman who lived for 91 years; she was insulin-dependent for 86 years and has been treated by a single physician - the author - for over 55 years. She was diagnosed with diabetes in 1932 at the age of five. Her diabetes was first treated with rapid-acting insulin three times daily, then from 1940 with rapid-acting and protamine zinc insulin once daily, while later on pork, then human crystalline zinc insulin was used, followed by a mixture of rapid-acting ...
This study allows inclusion of the entire spectrum of patients with DM undergoing PCI, and the only exclusion criteria are shock at presentation, inability to consent or a life expectancy
Was this patient's ST-elevation myocardial infarction directly related to his severe alcohol withdrawal? What might be the underlying pathophysiology of such a relationship?Journal of Medical Case Reports
A HEART ATTACK is when the blood supply that normally nourishes the heart with oxygen is cut off and the heart muscle begins to die. Knowing the early warning signs of a heart could save a life and spotting this unusual sign in the ear could mean you're at risk.
ConclusionClinically relevant subgroups, including patients with PMI, can be uncovered using serially measured cTnT and a LCMM. The LCMM showed superior diagnostic accuracy of PMI. A rising cTnT profile is potentially a better criterion than a single cut-off value in diagnosing PMI post-CABG.

Ingestion of cylindrical batteries is uncommon. Management can include removal via upper endoscopy, surgical excision, or observation. This case demonstrates the rare phenomenon of cylindrical battery ingestion causing an electrocardiogram (ECG) artifact that mimics ST segment myocardial infarction (STEMI).
