BACKGROUND Beta-blocker therapy improves symptoms, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and survival in patients with congestive heart failure, but chronic effects on neurohormones have not been extensively investigated. Therefore, we examined the neurohumoral effects of carvedilol. METHODS Fifty-five patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA)(More)
Coronary artery perforation (CAP) is an infrequent yet a very dangerous complication of percutaneous coronary intervention. We describe the successful treatment of a guidewire-induced distal coronary branch vessel perforation using localized distal injection of intracoronary thrombin with a microcatheter. This technique appears to be safe and effective for(More)
Coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) interventions continue to be technically challenging for interventional cardiologists despite the advent of multiple devices and techniques. Successful CTO percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has proven to improve symptoms, long-term mortality, and ejection fraction. We present a case of a patient with symptomatic(More)
OBJECTIVE This study sought to identify patient and left atrial morphology specific factors associated with early complications for left atrial appendage occlusion with the Watchman™ (Boston Scientific, Natick, MA) device. BACKGROUND Oral anticoagulation (OAC) is recommended for patients with atrial fibrillation, however, long-term OAC compliance is poor.(More)
