OBJECTIVES To compare the radial versus femoral approach using Angio-Seal for the incidence of access site complications among non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome patients undergoing invasive strategy. BACKGROUND Arterial access is a major site of complications after invasive coronary procedures. Vascular closure devices provide more comfort(More)
The transradial approach is safe and effective for coronary procedures. However, its use may be compromised in cases of variations in radial artery anatomy, spasms, and negative Allen's test. The transulnar approach emerges as a viable alternative to transradial approach. We report on a patient who underwent primary angioplasty via ulnar artery without(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to investigate the angiographic and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) findings of the Endeavor zotarolimus-eluting stent (ZES) in patients from a "real-world" clinical practice. METHODS AND RESULTS From January to March 2006, 100 patients undergoing routine or emergency percutaneous intervention were prospectively enrolled at(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Svelte Acrobat integrated delivery system (IDS) via radial approach with 5 Fr catheters. The direct stenting (DS) system enables easy delivery, deployment, and postdilatation of a cobalt-chromium stent. METHODS Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were prospectively enrolled at three centers to(More)
BACKGROUND Although the radial approach offers an unquestionable result in terms of reduction of vascular complications and occurrence of severe bleeding in comparison to the femoral approach, so far it has only been used in few centers which elected it as the preferential access. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the current status of percutaneous coronary(More)
The early interventionist strategy represents an important step in the treatment of non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), due to its superiority in reducing death and reinfarction when compared to the conservative strategy.1 Since the completion of invasive coronary procedures undergoing therapy Intense antithrombotic therapy predisposes(More)
Background: In addition to providing greater comfort and convenience for the patient, the radial approach is associated to lower rates of vascular complications and major bleeding, with potential impact on morbidity and mortality. Thus, the adoption of strategies that reduce the risk of arterial occlusion after invasive procedures, enabling it to be reused,(More)
