Illusion or reality? How 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography overcomes the limitations of angiography: OCT-guided percutaneous coronary intervention of left main stem disease involving LAD/LCx bifurcation.
l; AH Abstract Angiography is still the workhorse imaging approach for the vast majority of percutaneous coronary revascularization (PCR) cases. However, the limitations of angiographic guidance for coronary procedures have been well established. This case report demonstrates how 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D OCT) can change the treatment strategy, which, had only the angiography results been considered, seemed to be straightforward. A 67-year-old male patient presented with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction. A coronary angiogram revealed a tight lesion of the proximal left anterior descendin...

Axillary artery as alternative access for transcatheter aortic valve implantation in a patient with thoracic and abdominal multilayer flow modulator stents, and in a patient with occluded bilateral carotid and iliac arteries.
lek M Abstract Transaxillary access is an alternative to femoral access in patients with iliofemoral occlusion for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). A Multilayer Flow Modulator (MLFM) stent is frequently used in patients with a complex thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm. The MLFM stent is particularly used in cases where large arteries, such as the renal or celiac artery, feed from the aneurysmal sac. To the best of our knowledge, there is no prior report in the literature of a TAVI case with a pre-existing MLFM stent. Presently described are 2 TAVI cases, one with thoracoabdominal MLFM stents, a...

Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is an atypical form of coronary artery disease, the etiology of which has not yet been clearly defined. The aim of this study was to assess the existence of a relationship between anxiety/depression and CAE. METHODS: A CAE group (n=41; mean age: 58.9±9.0 years) and a control group (n=42; mean age: 58.0±9.6 years) were compared. The anxiety and depression status of patients was evaluated using the Hospital Anxiety and Depressi...

Osborn wave and new-onset atrial fibrillation related to hypothermia after synthetic cannabis (bonsai) abuse.

An 18-year-old male known to be a synthetic cannabinoid user was found unconscious and hypothermic. The patient's body temperature was 33ºC, and an Osborn wave and atrial fibrillation were detected in ECG readings. Following the application of heating and supportive therapy, consciousness returned and the ECG findings improved. Rewarming and supportive treatment can be life-saving in a hypothermic patient when initiated as soon as possible. PMID: 31219440...
