Does a 'direct' transfer protocol reduce time to coronary angiography for patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes? A prospective observational study.
OBJECTIVE: National guidelines recommend 'early' coronary angiography within 96 h of presentation for patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS). Most patients with NSTE-ACS present to their district ...
Routine use of fluoroscopic guidance and up-front femoral angiography results in reduced femoral complications in patients undergoing coronary angiographic procedures: an observational study using an Interrupted Time-Series analysis.
Transradial access is increasingly used for coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention, however, femoral access remains necessary for numerous procedures, including complex high-risk interventions, structural ...
Angiography Alone Versus Angiography Plus Optical Coherence Tomography to Guide Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: Outcomes From the Pan-London PCI Cohort.
OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine the effect on long-term survival of using optical coherence tomography (OCT) during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND: Angiographic guidance for PCI has substantial ...
Outcomes after chronic total occlusion percutaneous coronary interventions: an observational study of 5496 patients from the Pan-London CTO Cohort.
BACKGROUND: Chronic total occlusions (CTO) are commonly encountered in patients undergoing coronary angiography; however, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is infrequently performed owing to technical difficulty, ...
Reintroduction of elective cardiac interventions in the era of COVID-19: the Barts experience.
BACKGROUND: The response to COVID-19 has required cancellation of all but the most urgent procedures; there is therefore a need for the reintroduction of a safe elective pathway. METHODS: This was a study of a pilot pathway ...
Intravascular multimodality imaging: feasibility and role in the evaluation of coronary plaque pathology.
(Oxford University Press, 2017-02-17)
Coronary artery disease remains the leading cause of death in the developed world. Over recent years, research has been focused on the development of diagnostic intravascular imaging techniques that enable assessment of ...
