Outcomes of intravascular brachytherapy for recurrent drug‐eluting in‐stent restenosis
To examine the outcomes of vascular brachytherapy for recurrent drug‐eluting stents (DES) in‐stent restenosis (ISR), VBT and VBT are combined into a single therapy for recurrent ISR. Expand
Outcomes of subintimal plaque modification in chronic total occlusion percutaneous coronary intervention
When crossing into the distal true lumen fails during chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), subintimal plaque modification (SPM) is often performed to restoreExpand
Recent advances in microcatheter technology for the treatment of chronic total occlusions
The recently developed microcatheters offer additional options for guidewire support during CTO PCI and are reviewed to better understanding the role of these devices in contemporary CTOPCI. Expand
Retrograde Chronic Total Occlusion Percutaneous Coronary Intervention via Saphenous Vein Graft.
Use of SVGs for retrograde crossing is associated with higher rates of technical and procedural success and similar rates of in-hospital major adverse cardiac events compared with retrograde CTO PCI via other collateral vessels. Expand
Temporal Trends in Chronic Total Occlusion Percutaneous Coronary Interventions: Insights From the PROGRESS-CTO Registry.
During recent years, ad hoc CTO-PCI decreased along with decreasing use of retrograde crossing and antegrade dissection and re-entry, whereas the incidence of in-hospital MACE decreased. Expand
Outcomes with combined laser atherectomy and intravascular brachytherapy in recurrent drug-eluting in-stent restenosis.
When compared with VBT alone for the treatment of resistant DES ISR, combined use of ELCA and brachytherapy is associated with comparable long-term outcomes. Expand
Heparin Bridging Therapy for Patients on Chronic Oral Anticoagulants in Periprocedural Settings.
The authors summarize the major studies of heparin bridging for patients on chronic oral anticoagulants that may lead to a change in practice in periprocedural antithrombotic management and define an evidence-based heparIn bridging protocol for those patient groups who may be the candidates for this approach. Expand
Left Main Chronic Total Occlusion Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: A Case Series.
LMCA-CTO-PCI is infrequent, is performed mostly in patients with prior coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and is associated with good procedural outcomes. Expand
Combined use of intravascular lithotripsy and brachytherapy: A new approach for the treatment of recurrent coronary in‐stent restenosis
This work presents three recurrent coronary ISR cases in which multiple treatment modalities (high‐pressure balloon inflation, plaque modification balloons, and laser with contrast injection) failed and patients were angina free 1 month after the procedure. Expand
