From the Department of Cardiology, Apollo Hospital, 21, Greams Lane, Off Greams Road, Chennai 600006, India. Drs. Sengottuvelu and Rajendran have reported that they have no relationships relevant to the intravenous tirofiban infusion along with oral antiplatelets. A check angiogram after 4 days showed mild clearing of the filling defects (Fig. 1B, Online(More)
42-year-old diabetic woman presented with left ventricular dysfunction late after an Aanterior wall myocardial infarction. Fluoro-deoxy glucose-positron emission tomography showed viability in the left anterior descending artery (LAD) territory. Coronary angiogram (A, Online Video 1) showed a significant mid-LAD disease which was stented. Fractional flow(More)
AIMS The MeRes-1 trial sought to study the safety and effectiveness of a novel sirolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold (MeRes100 BRS) in treating de novo native coronary artery lesions by clinical evaluation and using multiple imaging modalities. METHODS AND RESULTS The MeRes-1 first-in-human trial was a single-arm, prospective, multicentre(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Although Absorb Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds (A-BVS) are routinely used in the Asia-Pacific, there is little information on patient selection or deployment technique here. This document investigates the experiences of leading interventional cardiologists from the Asia-Pacific region with a focus on patient characteristics, deployment(More)
Spontaneous coronary artery dissections (SCAD) have a high natural tendency for healing and require only temporary scaffolding in symptomatic patients. Bio absorbable vascular scaffolds, because of their property to dissolve over time, are an attractive option for SCAD as it avoids a permanent metallic jacket. We present a case of long segment(More)
AIM Role of PET-CT in assessment of myocardial viability in patients with LV dysfunction. METHODS This prospective study included 120 patients with LV dysfunction who underwent 99mTechnetium-Sestamibi myocardial perfusion SPECT-CT and 18FFDG cardiac PET-CT. They also underwent serial echocardiography and coronary angiography along with myocardial(More)
The presence of erosion/malapposition of a Sirolimus eluting stent was clearly visualized using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging. The presence of erosion/malapposition and the absence of neointimal hyperplasia after 10 months of sirolimus eluting stent could constitute a potential thrombogenic substrate for late stent thrombosis.

BACKGROUND Calcific aortic stenosis and coronary artery disease share common risk factors. In some of the previous studies statins have been used to retard the progression of aortic stenosis, but the results were inconsistent. METHODS One hundred and ten patients of CAS above the age of 40 years have undergone clinical, biochemical and echocardiographic(More)
