    Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther 7:1283-95. 2009
    ..This article will focus on some of the techniques in crossing chronic total occlusions lesions, as well as the available devices to improve long-term patency...
  2. doi request reprint A novel method of ventricular closure following transapical access
    Shishir Murarka
    Divison of Internal Medicine, Banner Estrella Medical Center, 9201 W Thomas Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85037, USA
    Future Cardiol 6:881-7. 2010
    ..One potential problem encountered is the closure of the ventricular puncture incision in a beating heart. Our aim was to develop a sutureless closure technique that does not leave behind a foreign body exposed on the endocardial surface...
  3. doi request reprint Chronic total occlusions: successful recanalization of very old lesions
    Shishir Murarka
    Division of Internal Medicine, Banner Estrella Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona, USA
    Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 81:802-9. 2013
    ..In the past, an old occlusion was not likely to be treated successfully percutaneous. We have had success in revascularizing some very old 20 plus year old occlusions percutaneously...

    Shishir Murarka
    Banner Estrella Medical Centre, Phoenix, Arizona, USA
    J Invasive Cardiol 22:571-3. 2010
    ..In the clinical arena, the correlation and agreement between ejection fraction (EF) measured by echocardiography versus catheterization in pre-heart transplant patients has not been studied...

    Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther 8:645-50. 2010
    ..However, they are no longer routinely used in the treatment of saphenous venous graft disease. Future research may be aimed at premedicating them to effectively treat saphenous venous graft lesions...

    Shishir Murarka
    Banner Estrella Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona, USA
    J Interv Cardiol 22:184-90. 2009
    ..The mitral and tricuspid annuli are areas of dense collagen. Application of heat, in the form of radiofrequency energy, can be used to shrink mitral valve annuli and offers a promising approach to the treatment of mitral regurgitation...
