Stenting for subclavian artery occlusive disease is being increasingly utilized. To determine the immediate and late outcome of subclavian artery stenting, we studied 38 consecutive patients in whom the procedure was attempted. Technical and clinical success was achieved in 35 patients without complications. Failures occurred only in completely occluded… (More)
The holy month of Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam. During this month, fasting Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, and sex from dawn until sunset. Although the Quran exempts sick people from the duty of fasting, it is not uncommon for many heart disease patients to fast during Ramadan. Despite the fact that more than a billion Muslims… (More)
A 48-year-old male with a history of subarachnoid hemorrhage in 1992, cerebellar infarction due to vertebral artery occlusion with subsequent epilepsy was admitted to area hospital for cardiac catheterization after preceding 3 episodes of recurrent chest pain with signs of non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Transthoracic echocardiogram showed… (More)
OBJECTIVE The incidence of coronary stent thrombosis has reduced with improved techniques and drugs. Nevertheless, clinical trials may not reflect real world practice due to the selective inclusion criteria, regional variations and more complex patients treated in day-to-day practice. We examined the frequency, predisposing factors and outcome of stent… (More)
BACKGROUND The balloon-expandable coil stent has been proved effective in the management of acute and threatened closure after coronary balloon angioplasty and has been shown to reduce restenosis in patients with suboptimal results after coronary balloon angioplasty. Coronary artery stenting has been limited by the occurrence of stent thrombosis and… (More)
Intravascular ultrasound guidance has been suggested as a prerequisite before managing patients receiving slotted tubular stents without anticoagulation. The purpose of this prospective observational study was to determine if patients receiving this stent can be similarly managed following angiographic guided stent deployment without intravascular… (More)
This prospective nonrandomized study was performed comparing aspirin alone (n = 46) versus aspirin and ticlopidine (p = 338) following native coronary artery stenting. There were significantly more stent thrombosis events in the aspirin-only group than in the aspirin and ticlopidine group (6.5% vs 0.9%, p = 0.02) and significantly more Q-wave myocardial… (More)
A 24-year-old man presented with a 24-hour history of pain and numbness in his left arm. The patient's clinical presentation of peripheral embolism was corroborated by angiography. Echocardiographic study showed masses in both right and left atria. Pathologic specimen from the embolus confirmed the diagnosis of aspergillosis.
Lutembacher syndrome is the combination of congenital atrial septal defect and acquired mitral stenosis. The condition is usually treated surgically. We describe a patient treated percutaneously with a combined Inoue balloon valvuloplasty and septal defect closure using the Amplatzer septal occlusion device.
