BACKGROUND Patients with concomitant critical carotid and coronary artery disease are at risk of major neurological events while undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. The presence of carotid artery stenosis increases the stroke rate in the perioperative period. In an effort to reduce the stroke rate, many institutions perform routine preoperative(More)
BACKGROUND The capability of OCT to examine the structure of the arterial wall before or after PCI is superior to those of other imaging modalities. Therefore the application of OCT during PCI seems logical and has the potential to enhance our performance during the PCI procedures. METHODS OCT was performed in fifty-two patients out of which, 45 patients(More)
Elective coronary artery stenting was performed in 242 consecutive patients in our centre for complex lesions (Type B, C), proximal lesions, restenotic lesions, total occlusion and venous grafts. The procedural success rate was 94.21%. Three patients (1.23%) required emergency coronary artery bypass surgery. Acute and sub-acute thrombosis rate was 1.26% and(More)
This report documents clinical and hemodynamic benefits of balloon mitral valvuloplasty (BMV) using a bifoil balloon catheter from a single center in 415 consecutive cases of rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS). The procedure was successful in 396 (95.2%) patients, with an increase in mitral valve area (MVA) from 0.82+/-0.35 cm2 to 2.21+/-0.24 cm2 (P < 0.001).(More)
Conventional coronary stenting is done after pre-dilatation of the lesion. The bleeding complications and incidence of subacute stent thrombosis have been reduced significantly by the use of antiplatelet agents and high pressure balloon inflation to ensure complete stent expansion. Elective stenting also can be done without pre-dilatation by "stent alone(More)
