Angioplasty, Transluminal, Percutaneous Coronary
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Ischemic Attack, Transient
Brief reversible episodes of focal, nonconvulsive ischemic dysfunction of the brain having a duration of less than 24 hours, and usually less than one hour, caused by transient thrombotic or embolic blood vessel occlusion or stenosis. Events may be classified by arterial distribution, temporal pattern, or etiology (e.g., embolic vs. thrombotic). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp814-6)
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.
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.

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between platelet reactivity (PR) after a loading dose (LD) of prasugrel and thrombotic events.
Dr. Gruntzig et al. (1979) successfully completed the world's first percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), in 1977. The first reported PTCA...
INTRODUCTION Poor antioxidant protection due to cardiac ischemia and low reduced glutathione (GSH) in blood serum may associate with enhanced risk of coronary restenosis after primary percutaneous co...
High platelet reactivity while receiving clopidogrel has been linked to cardiovascular events after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), but a treatment strategy for this issue is not well define...
The investigators sought to discover which one of the following strategies is the safest for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention: paclitaxel-coated balloon+Genous stent;...
To study longitudinally the incidence, pathogenesis, and risk factors for thrombotic events and coronary artery disease in a cohort of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
The objective of this study is to evaluate if aggressive antiplatelet therapy would reduce ischemic events in aspirin (ASA) resistant patients after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI...
To determine the safety and feasibility of same day discharge after elective coronary percutaneous intervention in a selected stable patient population. The hypothesis to be tested is tha...
