Article: Role of echocardiography in sinus venosus atrial septal defect combined with systemic and pulmonary vascular disease.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We present a case of persistent left superior vena cava, anomalous right pulmonary venous connection to the right-sided superior vena cava and sinus venosus atrial septal defect detected by computed tomography (CT) pulmonary angiography and echocardiography. These defects were surgically corrected using a double-patch technique. In fact, CT can provide anatomical information about a complex anomaly in the systemic and pulmonary vasculatures. Though modern imaging techniques are useful for detecting complex cardiovascular disease, careful echocardiographic examination should be performed to diagnose complex cardiac anomalies.Journal of cardiovascular ultrasound 03/2012; 20(1):49-51.
Article: Use of drug-eluting stent with provisional T-stenting technique in the treatment of renal artery bifurcation stenosis; long-term angiographic follow-up.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (RAS) usually involves the ostium and the proximal one-third of the renal artery main branch. Percutaneous renal artery angioplasty with stent placement is a well recognized treatment for atherosclerotic RAS. Occasionally, atherosclerotic RAS involves renal artery bifurcations. However, stent implantation in atherosclerotic RAS involving bifurcation is not only troublesome, but also challenging because of side branch occlusion and in-stent restenosis (ISR). In the present report, we describe the use of drug-eluting stents (DES) with provisional T-stenting technique for the treatment of renal artery bifurcation lesion. Follow-up angiogram showed no significant ISR 18 months after the procedure. In the treatment of renal bifurcation lesions, a two-stent strategy using DES could be a viable option in selected patients.Journal of Korean medical science 11/2011; 26(11):1512-4. · 0.84 Impact Factor
