AIM The objective of this prospective study was to compare the accuracy of multi-section computed tomography (MSCT) coronary angiography with invasive selective coronary angiography in the detection of significant coronary stenosis (> or =50% lumen diameter narrowing). METHODS Thirty consecutive patients (mean age 59+/-10 years) with suspected coronary(More)
We report a case of flail mitral valve in an elderly man. Contrast enhanced images of the left ventricle were compared with transthoracic echocardiography. MSCT during systolic phase accurately identified the flail P2 cusp of posterior mitral valve leaflet. It can be performed non-invasively without requiring sophisticated software. Our case suggests that(More)
U nroofed coronary sinus (URCS) is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly. There is a partial (either focal or fenestrated) or complete absence of the roof of the CS, which results in a communication between the CS and the left atrium (LA). It comprises less than 1% of all types of atrial septal defects; associated persistent left superior vena cava (LSVC) or(More)
Revascularisation by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in chronic total occlusion (CTO) is often a technically challenging procedure. The manipulation of wires and devices through a CTO during PCI without any means to visually identify vessel-wall boundaries involves an inherent risk of complications such as arterial dissection, perforation and(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)
