Drug-eluting balloon(DEB) and standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) are commonly used endovascular therapeutic procedures for the revascularization of infrapopliteal arterial occlusive ...
Objective: To explore the causes and countermeasure in recurrent bleeding following the selective renal artery embolization treating post-percutaneous nephrolithotomy hemorrhage. Methods: A total of 3...
Extrinsic "milking-like" compression of the left coronary trunk due to pseudoaneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa. Percutaneous treatment: Which to treat first: the trunk or the pseudoaneurysm?
Pseudoaneurysm formation is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication after surgical repair of congenital heart disease. We present a boy with truncus arteriosus communis 14 years after ho...
Long-term outcomes of a randomized clinical trial of supervised exercise, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty or combined treatment for patients with intermittent claudication due to femoropopliteal disease.
The aim was to compare the long-term outcomes of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), a supervised exercise programme (SEP) and combined treatment (PTA + SEP) in patients with intermittent cla...
To determine whether D-Dimer testing, using the MDA D-Dimer assay, can be used to simplify the diagnostic process for pulmonary embolism (PE). This will be assessed by performing a cohort...
Same day discharge is safe and feasible in selected troponin negative patients undergoing coronary planned percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or ad hoc PCI via the transfemoral appro...
Primary percutaneous coronary intervention represents the gold standard for the treatment of ST-segment-elevation acute myocardial infarction. However, periprocedural bleedings are associa...
The main objective of the trial is to determine whether D-dimer testing combined with assessment of Pre-Test-Probability (using a standardized clinical model) can be used to markedly simpl...
Acute aortic dissection (AD) is a deadly, difficult to diagnose disease presenting with an array of common and unspecific symptoms. Aortic dissection detection (ADD) risk score as a bedsid...
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
Percutaneous transluminal procedure for removing atheromatous plaque from the coronary arteries. Both directional (for removing focal atheromas) and rotational (for removing concentric atheromatous plaque) atherectomy devices have been used.
Testing or screening required by federal, state, or local law or other agencies for the diagnosis of specified conditions. It is usually limited to specific populations such as categories of health care providers, members of the military, and prisoners or to specific situations such as premarital examinations or donor screening.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
