The interventional cardiologist has to tackle a diverse and complex range of coronary lesions. For this reason, the experts who compiled this volume contribute the best practices for overcoming plaque and thrombus in the coronary arteries. From simple to complicated anatomy, the direct approach to achieving optimal results is clearly described andCited by: 3.

Coronary Artery Bifurcation Lesions: Anatomy By Ricardo A. Costa, Hiroyuki Kyono, Marco Costa, Mary E. Russell, Issam D. Moussa INTRODUCTION PCI in coronary bifurcation lesions continue to be a focus of debate and interest because of its complexity with respect to obtaining an optimal result in the main vessel (MV) while maintaining adequate patency of the.

Chapter 10 - Acute Coronary Syndrome: Thrombotic Lesions in Patients With Unstable Angina Pages Abstract The acute coronary syndrome is a syndrome whose cardinal manifestation is chest pain that has the features of angina (substernal, pressure-like, radiating to the neck and left arm) but that occurs at rest.

Severely calcified lesions increase the risk of dissection, inhibit stent delivery and adequate stent expansion, and are prone to stent malapposition with insufficient drug penetration. These factors may contribute to increased restenosis and stent thrombosis.

4,6 Failure to pretreat calcified lesions may lead to increased major adverse. We will discuss techniques for guidewire manipulation in selected subsets of coronary lesions with the caveat that minimal comparative literature is available.

As with other aspects of interventional cardiology, there are multiple guidewires that can be used for each lesion, and operator selection may change with experience or as technologic.

Coronary artery disease is the most common underlying cause. Publisher Synopsis "covers all the practical aspects of interventional coronary procedures, including methods to prevent restenosis, treatment of difficult lesions (such as bifurcation lesions, chronic total occlusions, and clacified lesions), intravascular imaging, ablative techniques, and adjunctive pharmacologic therapies.

The Coronary IVL System is a promising new treatment modality to tackle moderate to severe calcified coronary lesions, with a high rate of success and a low risk of complications. Larger studies and longer-term clinical data are needed to confirm the safety and efficacy of this technique with special attention to the effects on cardiac Author: Joost Daemen, Maria Natalia Tovar Forero.

The first drug-eluting stent (DES) dedicated for the treatment of coronary lesions with very small reference vessel diameter may be associated with a low rate of target lesion failure and late lumen loss without a signal for stent thrombosis, according to research published May 18 in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions and presented at EuroPCR in Paris.

Aorto-ostial lesions (AOLs), defined as a significant stenosis within 3 mm of the aortic orifice, are an uncommon but challenging lesion subset to manage. AOLs account for roughly % of interventions and frequently involve the right coronary : Marc Sintek, Jasvindar Singh.

Percutaneous interventions in AOL may result in inferior procedural and clinical outcomes compared to interventions in non-AOL coronary lesions. 2 Optimal outcome requires complete stent expansion and apposition to the vessel wall, complete lesion coverage with the stent, and accurate localization of the proximal stent edge within a virtual.

The evaluation of coronary lesions has evolved in recent years. Physiologic-guided revascularization (particularly with pressure-derived fractional flow reserve (FFR)) has led to superior outcomes compared to traditional angiographic assessment.

A greater importance, therefore, has been placed on the functional significance of an epicardial : John-Ross D. Clarke, Freddy Duarte Lau, Stuart W. Zarich.
