Escherichia coli was the most frequent cause of bacteriuria (33.3%), followed by Klebsiella (17.3%). Bacterial isolates were most resistant to Augmentin (97.8%) followed by tetracycline (85.8%), nalidixic acid (82.8%) and ciprofloxacin (75%) while 93.6% were multi-drug resistant. The highest susceptibility was observed with amikacin, which had a re...

Recent advances have been made in the development of microcatheters, and have contributed to super-selective catheterization. One new tool is the triple co-axial (triaxial) system, which consists of a small microcatheter, large microcatheter, and 4- or 5-Fr. catheter. This system may be applied to complex interventions. We herein introduce the tech...

The creation of a validated risk-standardization model for adverse outcomes after congenital cardiac catheterization can support reporting of risk-adjusted outcomes in the IMPACT Registry as a foundation for quality improvement.
Neurourology and urodynamics
Peritron+ handheld device accurately assessed Pves at different intravesical volumes when compared to UD measurements. The Peritron+ is a simple and safe device, which can be used in the office by a clinician and at home by a patient to monitor Pves and help to select patients who may require standard UD re-evaluation. This will be a valuable tool ...

An 84-year-old woman with a history of hemorrhagic stroke was admitted for a new cerebral ischemic event. While in hospital, she was diagnosed with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Owing to her high thromboembolic risk (CHA2 DS2 -VASc score of 6) we performed left atrial appendage (LAA) closure using a 22-mm AMPLATZER™ Amulet™. The procedure was suc...

The need for ATIVA increases median time to i.v. line placement by 118 to 135 min compared with traditional inspection and palpation. IVDU and prior need for an advanced technique are associated with a need for ATIVA.

Use of Visiglide 2 guidewire might facilitate selective biliary cannulation compared to conventional guidewire in terms of reducing cannulation time and papilla attempts.
Congenital heart disease
The results of this study show that the FloTrac sensor provides cardiac index measures which are not accurate enough to justify use in children with congenital heart disease undergoing catheterization. Further studies may allow for modifications of the algorithms to obtain more accurate cardiac index in this population.
The main objective of this review paper is to study the comparison between transradial and transfemoral approach in catheterization. Transradial and transfemoral are two main approaches which are used as a diagnostic and therapeutic purpose in catheterization. The transradial approach in interventional cardiology is safe, effective, and feasible as...
