Intercostal Artery Pseudoaneurysm After Ultrasound-Guided Liver Biopsy: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

We present a 58-year-old woman with a right intercostal artery pseudoaneurysm after percutaneous ultrasound (US)-guided liver biopsy. The patient presented 6 days after liver biopsy with a painful, pu...

Assessment of the effectiveness of percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty for failing or nonmaturing arterio-venous fistulae for hemodialysis.

Autologous A-V fistulae are the recommended arterio-venous access for long term dialysis in chronic renal failure patients. However, the rate of non-maturity and failure still significant. The present...

Rotational atherectomy through the radial artery is associated with similar procedural success when compared with the transfemoral route.

Rotational atherectomy (RA) has traditionally been carried out using 7 or 8 Fr guides through a transfemoral approach to allow for passage of 2.0 mm burrs or larger. With transradial percutaneous ...

Safety of a Diagnostic Strategy With D-Dimer Testing for PE

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
