Thrombus-containing lesions are frequently observed in patients with acute coronary syndromes. These lesions are prone to increased procedural risks, including distal embolization and abrupt closure of the vessel. This preliminary report evaluates if thrombus removal using a new X-Sizer catheter could reduce thrombotic burden and optimize angioplasty(More)
INTRODUCTION Stress-induced cardiomyopathy (Takotsubo) after bee stings in patients who have received catecholamines is rare. Endogenous as well as exogenous administration of catecholamines is thought to trigger stress-induced cardiomyopathy. CASE PRESENTATION A 37-year-old healthy white woman was stung by an unknown Hymenoptera that resulted in an(More)
INTRODUCTION The DES era has increased the demand on PCI-based revascularization and lesion complexity. One of the technical problems still limiting success rates in complex PCI is limited device deliverability. This work describes a new technique to improve deliverability. METHODS When deliverability was limited during PCI, a second 0.014-inch guide wire(More)
OBJECTIVES Myocardial ischemia is difficult to assess by noninvasive methods in patients with a permanent pacemaker. Pacing stress echocardiography (PASE) has been used successfully in the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, there are no data comparing PASE and other methods. METHODS We compared agreement and accuracy of PASE and(More)
