Featuring Mehdi H. Shishehbor, DO, PhD, MPH, Director, Interventional Cardiovascular Center, Co-Director, Vascular Center, Harrington Heart and Vascular Institute, University Hospitals, Cleveland, Ohio.
Herein, we have reported two cases at high risk for surgical CFE treated respectively with directional atherectomy and intravascular lithotripsy, with good clinical success both in short- and long-term follow-up.
Prior to the affiliation of a peripheral interventional cardiologist within BMC, the institution performed zero peripheral angiograms and 56 major amputations. In just a few short years, CVSCM facilitated an 87.5% decrease in the institution’s
We suggest approaching the important topic of alternative arterial access with the following questions: 1) WHAT is it?; 2) WHY is it needed?; 3) WHERE are the access sites?; 4) HOW safe is it?
We present a case demonstrating use of directional atherectomy technology below the ankle for revascularization of the pedal loop to demonstrate that atherectomy + PTA may be more beneficial to PTA alone in maximizing patient outcomes.
This month, Dr. Jihad Mustapha interviews Bailey Estes, BSN, RN-BC, RNFA, CNOR, RCIS. She is a cardiac cath lab nurse and research coordinator at Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene, Texas. The team she works with is focused on treating peripheral
How many years have you been performing complex critical limb ischemia (CLI) revascularization?
