Introduction: The DES era has increased the demand on PCI‐based revascularization and lesion complexity. One of the technical problems still limiting success rates in complex PCI is limited device deliverability. This work describes a new technique to improve deliverability. Methods: When...
Acute total occlusion of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) is a rare angiographic finding with very poor prognosis. We report a case of a 39‐year‐old man who presented with pulmonary edema and cardiogenic shock due to an acute anterior myocardial infarction. Coronary angiography, which was...
Background. There are few data regarding the impact of prior heart failure (P‐HF) on the presentation, course and outcomes of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Methods and Results. We prospectively analyzed all ACS patients admitted in all cardiology wards in Israel during February and March,...
It is very important that cardiac biomarkers on which clinically relevant decisions will rest are measured with highly reliable assays. Adequate studies are needed before new methods can be implemented in the laboratory routine, and only well‐documented assays should be considered for clinical...
A 65‐year‐old male patient with unstable angina and history of hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipidaemia was referred for coronary angiography. On the diagnostic procedure, separate ostia of LAD and LCX were found, with a significant lesion in the middle LAD and a high‐grade ostial lesion...
Objective: To assess the safety and feasibility of the GuardWire TM system as an embolic protection device during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Background: Distal embolization occurs in approximately 15% of patients after primary angioplasty and is...
Purpose: To determine if the ACC/ECC guidelines (1991) properly stratify patients according to risk of arrhythmia, defined as a single event on cardiac monitoring, and benefit, defined as a subsequent management change from a recorded telemetry event. Subjects and Methods: In 2003, a prospective...
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) should be considered as a cause of the acute coronary syndrome in young patients with few apparent risk factors for coronary artery disease, in females in the peripartum period, and in patients who are at a higher risk for this condition. SCAD can...
