Traumatic pulmonary vein pseudoaneurysm is an extremely rare condition that is challenging to manage. We present a unique case of a pulmonary vein pseudoaneurysm from blunt trauma in a patient with pr...
To study the association of ABCB1 and CYP2C19 polymorphisms and the clopidogrel response in Spanish peripheral artery disease patients following percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and to perf...
Pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta is a rare complication, usually after thoracic surgery or trauma. Since surgical repair is associated with very high morbidity and mortality, percutaneous closure...
Pseudoaneurysm happens when the artery wall is injured and the blood is contained by the surrounding tissues with eventual formation of a fibrous sac communicating with the artery. We report a case of...
Negative D-dimer values combined with clinical decision rules by Wells can help in excluding the diagnosis deep vein thrombosis (DVT). However, with increasing age D-dimer levels increase, possibly le...
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...
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.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
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...
