A novel method of treating stent fractures

Usha Rao, Timothy J Gilbert, Simon C Eccleshall

Abstract

Case history Figure 1. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) image showing gross malapposition between the original stent (black arrow) and the vessel wall (transparent arrow) A 44-year-old smoker with a history of hypertension, high cholesterol and positive family history presented with inferior wall ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Angiography revealed the culprit was an occluded right coronary artery (RCA). A drug-eluting stent (Taxus element) 2.75 by 24 mm was deployed and the patient discharged with follow-up on dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) (aspirin and clopidogrel).

Outcome and complications following diagnostic cardiac catheterisation in older people

Jenny Walsh, Mark Hargreaves

Abstract

Introduction Little observational data exist on the outcome of diagnostic cardiac catheterisation (DCC) in older people.

We conducted a retrospective, case-controlled study to examine the outcome, influence on management and complications of DCC in patients aged 80 years and older. The findings were compared with patients aged less than 70 years

Temporary pacing lead insertion in NHS Lanarkshire hospitals between 2005 and 2007: a retrospective study 

Musaab Yassin, Mohsin Ejaz, Brian O’Rourke

Abstract

Introduction Some studies have stated that the responsibility for implanting temporary pacing wires should be taken away from general physicians and have recommended that junior staff should always be supervised by a cardiologist.1,2 Patients and methods A retrospective review of hospital records of patients receiving a temporary pacemaker at National Health Service (NHS) Lanarkshire hospitals over a two-year period was undertaken (between 30/04/2005 to 30/04/2007). Data were collected to yield information broadly comparable to three similar previous studies.2-4 Adequate records were obtained for 100 procedures. A questionnaire was formulate
