Background: The cost of performing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasly (PTCA) is accelerating. The angiographic, clinical, technical, and procedural variables associated with PTCA cost are largely unknown. Methods: To determine an interrelationship between equipment size, operator...
We report the case of a patient with postinfarction rest angina, high grade ostial left main (LM) stenosis, and right and circumflex coronary occlusion. Coronary artery bypass was performed, yet all grafts failed within 2 months of surgery. We elected to proceed with coronary intervention on the...
The protected left main coronary artery (LM) is accessible to percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), and the procedure is usually performed with large size catheter systems. This report describes a successful PTCA of a partially protected LM through a 5Fr diagnostic catheter...
During the course of development of excimer laser angioplasty, several changes in patient selection and technique have occurred. It is uncertain, however, whether these changes have been associated with improved procedural outcome. In this study, multivariable regression methods were used to...
Laser‐assisted coronary angioplasty can be successfully applied to lesions not ideal for balloon angioplasty. Patients with severely impaired left ventricular (LV) function and complex coronary artery stenoses who call for percutaneous revascularization are considered a high risk group for...
