Antegrade fenestration and re ‐entry: A new controlled subintimal technique for chronic total occlusion recanalization
ConclusionsWe have developed a novel ADR technique which aims at complementing the CTO operator's armamentarium. AFR requires no specific device, does not preclude alternative bailout techniques, and is inexpensive and easy to perform. A dedicated study should confirm our findings in a large cohort.

Lost and found: Coronary stent retrieval and review of literature
Abstract A 61‐year‐old man with a history of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the mid right coronary artery (RCA) with a drug eluting stent (DES), presented with non‐ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. Coronary angiography demonstrated complex disease of the distal RCA as well as in‐stent stenosis of the previously placed mid RCA stent. The patient underwent bifurcation PCI of the distal RCA followed by attempted intervention with a DES on the mid RCA lesion. The stent could not cross the lesion and eventually became dissociated from its delivery system. The lost stent was successfully retrieved ...

Use of a novel embolic filter in carotid artery stenting: 30 ‐Day results from the EMBOLDEN Clinical Study
Abstract ObjectivesThe EMBOLDEN study was conducted to test the safety and efficacy of a novel emboli protection filter design for use in carotid artery stenting (CAS) in patients with severe carotid stenosis who were at high risk of operative complications from carotid endarterectomy (CEA). BackgroundGeneral considerations for filter design usually involve trade‐offs between trackability/profile and wall apposition/capture efficiency. The GORE® Embolic Filter (GEF) is intended to address these design goals via a hybrid construction. MethodsPatients at high risk for CEA (N = 250) were treated with CAS u...

Transubclavian approach: A competitive access for transcatheter aortic valve implantation as compared to transfemoral
Abstract AimsEmpirically, transfemoral (TF) approach is the first choice for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). We aimed to investigate whether transubclavian (TSc) and TF approaches present comparable major outcomes according to current evidence. MethodsWe systematically searched PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane database for studies with symptomatic aortic stenosis patients who underwent TAVI through TF or TSc/axillary access from January/2006 to January/2017. Searched terms were: (“aortic stenosis” OR “transcatheter aortic” OR “TAVI” OR “TAVR”) and (“transfem...
