OBJECTIVES To investigate the outcome of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) with implantation of a new thin-strut cobalt-chromium bare-metal-stent (BMS) in the drug-eluting-stent (DES) era. BACKGROUND Despite the contemporary penetration of DES in the clinical practice, a relevant percentage of patients are still treated by BMS.(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the clinical outcome of unselected patients undergoing drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation on bifurcated lesions using a "provisional T And small Protrusion (TAP)" stenting strategy. METHODS Consecutive patients undergoing DES implantation on one major bifurcation lesion were treated by main-vessel (MV) stenting, followed (if needed)(More)
BACKGROUND Trans-radial approach (TRA) reduces vascular access-site complications but has some technical limitations. Usually, TRA procedures are performed using 5 Fr or 6 Fr sheaths, whereas complex interventions requiring larger sheaths are approached by trans-femoral access. METHODS During 4 years, at two Institutions with high TRA use, we have(More)
Proximal embolic protection devices (PPDs) are increasingly used during carotid artery stenting (CAS) due to the theoretical advantage of cerebral protection during the entire procedure. Transradial approach reduces access site vascular complications and can be useful for CAS in patients at high bleeding risk, with contraindications for prolonged bed rest(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate a possible independent predictive role of systemic inflammation markers on renal function after renal artery stenting. BACKGROUND An elevated baseline serum creatinine has previously been shown to be the strongest predictor of improved renal function after percutaneous renal artery stenting. The inflammatory system is implicated(More)
BACKGROUND Optimal management of patients needing non-cardiac surgery after coronary stenting has not been established. Objective. To assess the perioperative outcome of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery after coronary bare-metal stent (BMS) or drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. METHODS We enrolled consecutive patients undergoing non-cardiac(More)
AIMS Restenosis and bifurcated lesions represent technically challenging lesions for percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). Data regarding procedural and clinical outcome of re-PCI for restenosis of stented bifurcated lesions are lacking. Our aims were to evaluate angiographic and procedural results and one-year clinical outcome of PCI for restenosis of(More)
Percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) in patients with severely depressed left ventricular (LV) function and in those with chronic total occlusions are technically challenging and at high risk of complications. Here we report a case of successful retrograde transradial recanalization and stenting of a chronically occluded left main coronary artery(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the role of renal stenting in selected patients with chronic ischemic heart disease and renal artery stenosis. METHODS Consecutive patients, with chronic ischemic heart disease and severe hypertension and/or impaired renal function undergoing renal stenting, were prospectively enrolled. Mid-term (at least 2 years) follow-up was(More)
