Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is an uncommon disorder defined as an obstruction of the hepatic venous outflow. Percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty (PTA) is a less invasive treatment option for BCS patients. However, there are no reports regarding inferior vena cava (IVC) rupture caused by perforation route through a collateral vein during treatment of BCS. Here, we report a male patient with BCS who had a long segmental obstruction of the IVC and its collateral vessels. Here, IVC rupture occurred at the distal end of the obstructed IVC during a percutaneous angioplasty; the rupture was repaired successfully with an ...

Authors: Stanek F Abstract The aim of this review is to summarize and update current research concerning the safety of drug-coated balloons (DCBs) and drug-eluting stents (DESs) with paclitaxel (PTX) in peripheral arteries. The data from the large randomized controlled trials showed evidence of the superiority of DCBs over plain balloon angioplasty concerning efficacy. Also, the safety parameters between the two groups did not differ. However, two meta-analyses identifying an increased late mortality risk after using PTX technologies were published only a short time ago (Katsanos et al, FDA meta-analysis). In contr...

The treatment of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension has expanded considerably. The ability to endarterectomize chronic thromboembolic material, the availability of pulmonary hypertension medical therapy to treat inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension and/or residual pulmonary hypertension, and the rebirth of pulmonary balloon angioplasty have changed the management landscape. Patient selection requires a multidisciplinary evaluation at an experienced center. What is inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension to one group may be operable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertensio...

Abstract Benign central venous thoracic occlusion is a frequent issue in haemodialysis patients. Symptomatic stenosis affects quality of life and can cause dysfunction of arteriovenous access or make it impossible to implant a haemodialysis catheter. Common risk factors for the development of the occlusions are central venous catheters and cardiac rhythm devices. The gold standard for diagnosis is venous angiography. Treatment of asymptomatic lesions can lead to clinical deterioration and should be avoided. The primary method of treatment for symptomatic patients is endovascular therapy. Repeat balloon angioplasty...

Authors: Liu H, Gu Y, Yang S, He J, Zhang F Abstract The aim of the present retrospective study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety and the primary results following application of excimer laser atherectomy (ELA) combined with adjunctive drug-coated balloon angioplasty (DCBA) as the first-line endovascular treatment for patients with chronic obstructive femoropopliteal arterial disease. The baseline characteristics and angiographic variables of all patients who underwent ELA for stable chronic obstructive femoropopliteal arterial disease at Tianjin First Central Hospital (Tianjin, China) between May and Decembe...

However, bifurcation lesion intervention is associated with a high complication rate, and optimal treatment of coronary bifurcation is an ongoing debate.Areas covered: Both different stenting techniques and a variety of devices have been suggested for bifurcation treatment, including the use of conventional corona...

This study enrolled patients who underwent Rotablator (Rota group) and those who did not (Non-rota group) between January 20 10 and 2014 December at 12 hospitals. A total of 67 limbs and 68 lesions in 65 patients were included (Rota group; 54 limbs and 55 lesions in 52 patients, Non-rota group; 13 limbs and 13 lesions in 13 patients). In the Rota group, a technical success rate was 94.5% with a complication rate of 1.8%, and all lesions underwent subsequent postdilatation following the adjunctive use of Rotablator, and approximately half of above-the-knee lesions underwent stent implantation. The Rota group had a significa...

AbstractAortic coarctation is a common congenital heart defect that often requires correction at a young age. Currently, success is defined by the achievement of a durable repair with low morbidity and mortality. We sought to systematically review the literature on risk factors for recoarctation and mortality in infants submitted to aortic arch coarctation repair under 1  year of age. PubMed and Scopus were searched for studies reporting risk factors for recoarctation and mortality from January 1989 to August 2019. Among the 1038 retrieved articles, 18 met the inclusion criteria, with a total of 2891 patients. The ext...
