A Primer on Diagnostic and Financial Implications of D-dimer Testing.

Given the high incidence of deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism (DVT/PE) (300,000 to 600,000 per year in the U.S.) and the 30 percent mortality rate associated with undiagnosed PE, diagnostic eval...

Association between renal function and outcomes after percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty in hypertensive patients with renal artery stenosis.

We investigated the impact of renal function on outcomes after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty.

Recurrent bleeding following the renal artery embolization treating post-percutaneous nephrolithotomy hemorrhage: causes and countermeasure.

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?

D-dimer at venous thrombosis diagnosis is associated with risk of recurrence.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common disease with a high recurrence rate. D-dimer measured after cessation of anticoagulant therapy predicts recurrence, and is used to decide on treatment prolonga...

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...

Same-Day Discharge After Coronary Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA)

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...

Vascular Closure Device Versus Transradial Approach in Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Primary percutaneous coronary intervention represents the gold standard for the treatment of ST-segment-elevation acute myocardial infarction. However, periprocedural bleedings are associa...

Canadian Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis Study (CANPEDS)

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...

Aortic Dissection Detection Risk Score Plus D-dimer in Suspected Acute Aortic Dissection

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
