  • Advanced Coronary Angiography

    Description:
    Coronary angiography is probably the most critical aspect of cardiac catheterization and is required in multiple clinical settings. Patients may present with stable chest pain syndromes, acute coronary syndromes, or life-threatening myocardial infarction, with other cardiac abnormalities such as valvular heart disease, or with other non-cardiac conditions requiring knowledge of coronary anatomy for safe management.

    Bypass Graft Angiography Pathology and Limitations

    Description:
    In this lesson we will apply our knowledge of coronary anatomy and coronary angiography to patients who have previously undergone coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Venous and arterial bypass grafts each have unique issues related to optimal imaging and interpretation of findings in a clinical context.

  • Syncope Top 10

    Description:
    Syncope is a relatively common occurrence in the general population and can represent a benign vaso-vagal response or a life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia or other severe cardiac condition. Because of the broad differential diagnosis, the evaluation and management of the patient can be time-consuming and complex. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • The Role of Fractional Flow Reserve

    Description:
    This case analysis regards a patient with multivessel coronary heart disease who undergoes coronary angiography. Coronary artery bypass surgery is recommended. The patient undergoes additional evaluation with Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) to define the hemodynamic significance of several of the coronary stenoses.

  • Total Occlusion Late after Myocardial Infarction

    Description:
    It is well established that prompt reperfusion therapy within the first six hours of MI symptom onset can significantly reduce mortality and morbidity after MI, and reperfusion therapy with PCI/stenting or fibrinolysis is well established. However, it is not uncommon that a patient will undergo coronary angiography 12 or even 24 hours after MI, where a totally occluded artery is identified at that point in time.

  • Vascular Access for Radial, Brachial, Internal Jugular, and Other Sites

    Description:
    In modern interventional cardiology, the central circulation is accessed for many reasons, ranging from coronary imaging and intervention, to hemodynamic measurement, myocardial biopsy, valvular interventional procedures, diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease, and multiple other indications.

  • Waveform Interpretation: Left Atrial, Aortic, Peripheral Arteries, Left Ventricular

    Description:
    Recording hemodynamic pressures from the left atrium can be straightforward in the presence of certain abnormalities such as atrial septal defect or patent foramen ovale, but will require trans-septal puncture in many patients. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • Waveform Interpretation: Right Atrial, Right Ventricular, Pulmonary Artery

    Description:
    Many cardiac and critical care patients undergo right-heart catheterization to measure pressures and oxygen saturations in the right-sided cardiac chambers. In addition to the absolute value of these measurements, there is significant information about cardiac physiology and pathology that can be gained by examining the various waves and morphologies of the pressure recordings.

  • When Eosinophils Attack

    Description:
    This interesting case involves a patient with cardiogenic shock due to an unusual form of cardiomyopathy. This diagnosis is frequently missed as it is often not even considered. Our patient was treated with an LVAD and histopathologic examination of the myocardium plug sampled during surgery led to the diagnosis. The patient was treated with both left and right ventricular support devices (LVAD, RVAD) and survived through hospital discharge. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.

  • Wide Complex Tachycardia

    Description:
    Tachyarrhythmias can present a significant clinical challenge. Patients presenting with fast heart rate may be unstable with chest pain, hypotension, or with myocardial ischemia, or they may be completely asymptomatic. The initial approach typically involves distinguishing between tachycardias with a wide QRS complex ("wide complex tachycardias") versus those with a narrow QRS complex ("narrow complex tachycardias"). Narrow complex tachycardias are always supra-ventricular in origin. Wide complex tachycardias are more complex as they may arise from supra-ventricular sources and conduct aberrantly (supra-ventricular tachycardia with aberrancy) or they may arise from ventricular sources (ventricular tachycardia). In this case, we will examine a patient presenting with tachycardia and work our way through a differential diagnosis. Note: This course is eligible for ACPE credit.
