BACKGROUND Few data are available about neointimal tissue characteristics after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in patients with decreased renal function. We used virtual histology-intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS) to assess the neointimal tissue characteristics according to the baseline renal function. METHODS We compared neointimal tissue(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to compare the risk of complications and outcome between infarct-related artery (IRA)-only revascularization and multivessel (MV) revascularization in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) with renal insufficiency and MV disease. METHODS A total of 1,031 acute MI patients with renal insufficiency and MV(More)
BACKGROUND No-reflow phenomenon is a serious complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and associated with poor prognosis. The aim of this study was to determine whether triple anti-platelet therapy could improve clinical outcome in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who had no-reflow phenomenon during PCI compared with dual(More)
We compared clinical characteristics, management, and clinical outcomes of nonagenarian acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients (n=270, 92.3 ± 2.3 yr old) with octogenarian AMI patients (n=2,145, 83.5 ± 2.7 yr old) enrolled in Korean AMI Registry (KAMIR). Nonagenarians were less likely to have hypertension, diabetes and less likely to be prescribed with(More)
An aneurysm of the subclavian artery is rare. Recently, we experienced a case of a ruptured subclavian artery aneurysm presenting as hemoptysis. The patient had experienced atypical chest discomfort, and computed tomography (CT) revealed a small aneurysm of the left subclavian artery (SCA). Hemoptysis occurred 2 weeks later. Follow-up CT showed a ruptured(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac arrest complicating acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is known to be associated with increased in-hospital mortality. However, little is known about the long-term outcomes after cardiac arrest complicating first onset STEMI in contemporary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) era. METHODS We analyzed 7942 consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Metal stent insertion through percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) track is an important palliative treatment modality for malignant biliary obstruction. Acute pancreatitis is one of serious complications of biliary metal stenting. The purpose of this study was to investigate the risk of pancreatitis for patients who underwent(More)
