5 ‐Year clinical follow‐up of the COBRA (complex coronary bifurcation lesions: Randomized comparison of a strategy using a dedicated self‐expanding biolimus A9‐eluting stent vs. a culotte strategy using everolimus‐eluting stents) study
ConclusionCompared with culotte stenting with Xience, complex coronary bifurcation stenting using a dedicated strategy combining the Axxess and Biomatrix stents results in similar stent strut coverage at 9 months, and excellent clinical outcomes at 5 years.

Impact of pacemaker mode in patients with atrioventricular conduction disturbance after trans ‐catheter aortic valve implantation
ConclusionsUp to half of patients implanted for high‐degree AVCD after TAVI had conduction recovery. Patients with cDDD programming at hospital discharge had more pacemaker dependency and a worse cardiac prognosis. Thus, pacemaker mode should be systematically set to promote spontaneous atrioventricular conduction in patients with pacemaker implantation after TAVI.

Long ‐term outcomes of patients with diabetes mellitus undergoing percutaneous intervention for popliteal and infrapopliteal peripheral arterial disease
Abstract ObjectivesTo evaluate the association of diabetes mellitus (DM) with clinical and angiographic characteristics and outcomes of patients with popliteal and infrapopliteal peripheral arterial disease (PAD) undergoing peripheral vascular intervention (PVI). BackgroundClinical features and outcomes in patients with DM and popliteal or infrapopliteal PAD undergoing PVI are not well described. MethodsUsing the data from the laser in popliteal and infrapopliteal stenosis study, we retrospectively examined the association of diabetes with clinical and angiographic characteristics and risk adjusted short‐ and intermediat...

Feasibility, safety, and patient satisfaction of same ‐day discharge following peripheral arterial interventions: A randomized controlled study
ConclusionThis small, single‐center randomized study found that among carefully selected peripheral arterial interventions, SD may be feasible and safe. However, patient satisfaction and perceived safety were significantly lower among SD compared to the OS condition. Larger prospective studies are warranted to confirm these findings.

Carotid stenting with double layered stents: Double trouble or double benefit?
Key Points The use of double layer (covered) stents during carotid artery stenting (CAS) appears to be safe; attenuation of plaque prolapse and distal embolization is reasonable but unproven. Double layer stents are commercially available in Europe but not in the United States; similar benefits might be obtained by implanting two self‐expanding stents, to decrease the effective free cell area. Embolic protection devices (EPDs) are recommended in all CAS patients; the use of double layer stents does not eliminate the need for EPDs. (Source: Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions)

Real time patient dosimetry in the cath lab: Can you see what they get?
Key Points Real time radiation dose monitoring in the cath lab may provide immediate feedback for potential dose reduction during PCI. Radiation dose monitoring to predict potential tissue injury utilizes equipment measured air Kerma at the interventional reference point (IRP) with then calculated specific tissue peak skin dose. The role of the cath lab Quality Committee is not only to assess individual high dose radiation cases but also to create processes and assess new technologies to assure radiation dose is best utilized in all cases.

Long ‐term survival prospects of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention: Envisioning the future
Key Points Implicit and largely intuitive survival predictions guide current clinical decision making after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A model based on nine simple factors known after diagnostic catheterization but prior to PCI provides accurate prediction of five‐year survival probability after PCI. Future prediction models and methods incorporating age and gender adjusted risk of death, cause of death (competing risks), and low prevalence but impactful comorbidities automatically implemented in electronic health records have the potential to further inform clinical decision‐making and target therapies...

Coronary chronic total occlusions: How to dilate the tough ones
Key Points Several chronic total occlusions (CTOs) may be undilatable despite successful wire passage; several techniques can be used for lesion preparation, such as high‐pressure balloon inflations, rotational atherectomy laser, cutting balloon, and scoring balloons. Presence of moderate to severe calcification and lesion length over 40 mm in association with comorbidities, such as diabetes mellitus and reduced ejection fraction, may contribute to making a CTO lesion undilatable. Still, appropriate therapy selection for a patient with CTO should be individualized and procedure safety attended to. (Source: Catheterizati...

X ‐ray canary in the cath lab: Posterior cataracts
Key Points Cataract formation in the posterior subcapsular region of the lens is a lesion highly specific to both high‐dose acute radiation exposure and chronic low‐dose exposure. Low‐dose radiation may not manifest lens changes for several decades after initial exposure. Cardiac catheterization team members need to be educated on, and protected from, this form of radiation injury as its long latency period between exposure and physical damage may acutely reduce the sense of hazard amongst healthcare radiation workers.
