    Drug-eluting stents were developed and approved for the reduction of in-stent restenosis. However, restenosis still occurs, and stent fracture is suggested as a cause of restenosis after implantation. Although sirolimus-eluting stents are considered to carry a high risk of fracture, the risk is...

    Background: Adverse events from Melody valve implantation may be catastrophic. To date a role for three dimensional rotational angiography of the aortic root (3DRAA) during Melody valve implantation has not been established. Objectives: To describe the role of 3DRAA in the assessment of Melody...
