Apparently for the first time, fractional flow reserve assessment to guide PCI decisions improved the hardest of clinical end points in patients with intermediate-severity stenoses at angiography.Medscape Medical News
ConclusionOur findings provide a new insight into the prediction for restenosis in CHD patients underwent PCI with SES.
J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1701210Knee dislocations (KDs) are frequently found in high-energy impact injuries, ranging from automobile accidents to contact sports. KDs require careful examination due to the limb-threatening nature of these injuries. A key examination in any KD comprises a proper assessment of the vascular status. The risk of popliteal artery injury with a KD has varied from 7 to 40%, with more contemporary studies reporting injury in the range of 7 to 15%. The notion of mandatory emergent arteriography was challenged in the trauma literature as several small retrospective studies suggested that select...
ConclusionsTo date, this is the first reported case where a patient underwent oblique lateral interbody fusion surgery in a left lateral decubitus position due to a left-sided inferior vena cava. This case demonstrates that carefully reading radiological results is important for operation planning and avoiding anatomical complications.
ConclusionsCMR is a key tool for diagnosing LDAC. Characteristic findings are subepicardial fatty infiltration and midwall-subepicardial late gadolinium enhancement. The prognosis of this population is poor with a high incidence of sudden cardiac death and ventricular arrhythmias.ResumenIntroducción y objetivosRecientemente, la miocardiopatía arritmogénica del ventrículo izquierdo (MCAVI) ha sido reconocida como parte del espectro de la miocardiopatía arritmogénica. Se caracteriza por el reemplazo fibroadiposo de la pared de dicho ventrículo. Se describen las formas de prese...
CONCLUSION: Retrograde 3DRA could be safe and useful for the detection of plaque protrusions and to avoid ischemic complication for tolerable cases of internal carotid artery transient balloon protection. PMID: 31979997 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Our experience suggests that endovascular treatment of middle cerebral artery bifurcation unruptured wide-necked aneurysms with an LVIS stent is safe and effective, but the effect on branches needs to be further studied. PMID: 31979996 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Verdoia M, Nardin M, Negro F, Tonon F, Gioscia R, Rolla R, De Luca G Abstract Despite the fact that elderly patients represent a prevalent and challenging population in the current practice, few data exist on the impact of platelet parameters on cardiovascular risk in these patients. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of age on the immature platelet count (IPC) and their relationship with CAD. We included a total of 2236 consecutive patients undergoing coronary angiography in a single center. Elderly patients (age ≥ 75 years) were 756 (33.7%). IPC was measured at admissio...
CONCLUSION: We found no significant association between retinal vascular density on OCT-A and hemodynamic variables in the acute phase of a myocardial infarction or after 3 months of cardiac rehabilitation. Therefore, OCT-A findings do not seem to be influenced by the hemodynamic changes associated with myocardial infarction. PMID: 31973975 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: As reimbursement for emergency medicine in Germany was recently rearranged, quality benchmarking has gained incremental importance. Mandatory joint quality measurement in both concepts ensuring gap analysis and process improvement is encouraged. PMID: 31970463 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
