INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Malignant pericardial effusion has a high recurrence rate after pericardiocentesis. We sought to confirm the efficacy and feasibility of percutaneous balloon pericardiotomy (PBP) as the initial treatment of choice for these effusions. METHODS Retrospective analysis of the clinical, echocardiographic, and follow-up(More)
Mitral stenosis (MS) is frequently associated with the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) as a consequence of hemodynamic and inflammatory changes in the left atrium. Both conditions predispose to thrombus formation, with frequent involvement of the left atrial appendage (LAA), and consequent increase in the incidence of systemic thromboembolic events.(More)
A 65-year-old man had undergone percutaneous revascularization of the left anterior descending artery four years earlier, with two non-overlapping stents being implanted in the same procedure: a first-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) in the proximal segment (2.75 mm×16 mm TAXUS Element paclitaxel-eluting stent) and a second-generation DES in the mid(More)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are both complex and significant clinical problems. The pathophysiological mechanisms that link OSA with CAD are complex and can influence the broad spectrum of conditions caused by CAD, from subclinical atherosclerosis to myocardial infarction. OSA remains a significant clinical problem among(More)
