Rupture of the interventricular septum is an uncommon but often fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction. Transcatheter closure is an established method of treating selected congenital defects but clinical experience on transcatheter closure of postinfarction ventricular septal defects (VSDs) is minimal. We report a case of successful transcatheter(More)
The prevalence of coronary artery disease and ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are increasing in India. Although recent publications have focused on improving preventive measures in developing countries, less attention has been placed on the acute management of STEMI. Recent policy changes in India have provided new opportunities to address(More)
Prosthetic valve thrombosis occurring during pregnancy is a life-threatening complication. Surgical treatment requires clot removal or valve replacement under cardiopulmonary bypass, and carries a high mortality. We report successful thrombolytic therapy with streptokinase for prosthetic valve thrombosis in a pregnant, 28-year-old woman. The patient, who(More)

UNLABELLED In India, the prevalence of ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is rising exponentially leading to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Despite advancement in reperfusion therapy (pharmacologic and interventional), the overall utilization, system of care and timely reperfusion remains suboptimal. JUSTIFICATION AND PURPOSE: Alarming(More)
BACKGROUND Contrast induced nephropathy (CIN) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim of this study is to evaluate the collective probability of CIN in Indian population by developing a scoring system of several identified risk factors in patients undergoing PCI. METHODS This is a(More)
BACKGROUND The choice of drug-eluting stent in the treatment of patients with diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease who are undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has been debated. Previous studies comparing paclitaxel-eluting stents with stents eluting rapamycin (now called sirolimus) or its analogues (everolimus or zotarolimus) have(More)
OBJECTIVES The SPIRIT V (A Clinical Evaluation of the XIENCE V Everolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System in the Treatment of Patients With De Novo Coronary Artery Lesions) study is a post-market surveillance experience of the XIENCE V (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) everolimus-eluting stent (EES) in patients with higher-risk coronary anatomy.

The goal of treatment of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is timely restoration of myocardial blood flow. Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains the treatment of choice for STEMI patients, as shown in multiple clinical trials. However, because of logistic constraints, timely primary PCI may not be possible(More)
