EuroIntervention: new electronic issue

Coronary artery fistulae represent one of the most challenging anatomical defects to define accurately. We aimed to investigate the additional benefit conferred by volume rendering of tomographic images and 3D printing for diagnosis and interventional planning.

All over the World – in nearly 100 countries - member organisations will set up thousands of educational activities and events in order everyone feels involved in protecting themselves from cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide killing 17.5 million a year.

Atherectomy for calcified coronary plaques

26 Sep 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

What is the management strategy for heavily calcified coronary stenosis? E. Barbato, F. Mangiacapra and J. Daemen offer you their expert view. How difficult is it to recognize a heavily calcified lesion? Is angiography enough? Learn why IVUS or OCT can give us a broader idea of the vessel anatomy, including identifying calcific nodules. Be confident, by using a procedure you know well; be prepared, to recognize calcification and complications. Will a rotoblator be necessary? What burr size would you use? Remember, it is not just about getting the stent across…it’s about optimal expansion. More tips and tricks?  Start here…

EuroIntervention Journal: ORBIT II study

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of severe coronary artery calcification (CAC) is challenging. The ORBIT II study demonstrated the safety and efficacy of orbital atherectomy (OA) in patients with severe CAC. Microparticulate liberated during OA may disturb the coronary microcirculation. In the present study, we evaluated OA treatment in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
