Distal embolic protection devices have been shown to reduce the risk of peri‐procedural complications associated with saphenous vein graft intervention. However, there are several important anatomic limitations that may preclude routine device use. We analyzed the angiograms of 624 consecutive...
Our objective was to determine the factors affecting recovery of left ventricular (LV) contractility and myocardial perfusion after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We selected 60 consecutive patients who underwent successful left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) stenting. The...
Nonsurgical closure of congenital and acquired ventricular septal defects (VSD) has become increasingly acceptable with the availability of various occlusion systems that allow percutaneous treatment of muscular and membranous defects. This study describes a series of 12 patients...
Twenty‐three patients were found to have anomalous origin of right coronary artery from the left coronary sinus (LCS) from January 2000 to October 2003. The mean age was 58.6 ± 14.3 years with male predominance (56.5%). Cardiovascular risk factors were found in 18 (78.3%) patients while coronary...
Maintaining patent atrial septal communications or fenestrations can be vital in conditions requiring adequate decompression of the atria or Fontan baffle. We have recently deployed stents for this purpose, and the aim of this retrospective analysis is to describe our experience. All 26 patients...
Early spontaneous closure of a fenestration following Fontan palliation may complicate the postoperative management of such patients. The creation of a fenestration in the catheterization laboratory with an intravascular stent may improve these patients' hemodynamic status. The aim of this study...
