Purpose: Myocardial infarction in children with total occlusion of a coronary artery after Kawasaki disease is rare due to multiple collateral vessels. We aimed to investigate the changes in coronary ...
Recanalization of chronic total occlusion (CTO) located in the ostium may require the operator's ability to use the retrograde approach. We present a case of opening a chronically occluded right coron...
Purpose. The outcome of recanalization in patients with chronic symptomatic intracranial vertebral artery (ICVA) total occlusion is poor. This paper reports the technical feasibility and long-term out...
To investigate the impact of the success or failure of chronic total occlusion (CTO) interventions on the clinical outcomes in the current drug-eluting stent (DES) era.
We summarize recent research on percutaneous coronary intervention of chronic total occlusion of the right coronary artery. We then explain the method and technology of forward and backward revascular...
Under the circumstances that appropriate first-choice guidewires for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) have yet to be established, the objective of...
The CiTop™ guidewire Coronary study is a feasibility open label study, to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the CiTop™ Guidewire for crossing chronic total occlusion in Coronary arte...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of drug-eluting stent implantation compared to optimal medical treatment in patients with chronic total occlusion.
ACROSS-Cypher® is a prospective, multi-center, open label, single arm study of the Cypher® sirolimus eluting coronary stent in native total coronary occlusion revascularization. The pri...
This study is to determine if the BridgePoint Medical System (CrossBoss Catheter, Stingray Catheter, Entera Guidewire) can facilitate safe and effective placement of a guidewire in the tru...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
A chronic inflammatory process that affects the AORTA and its primary branches, such as the brachiocephalic artery (BRACHIOCEPHALIC TRUNK) and CAROTID ARTERIES. It results in progressive arterial stenosis, occlusion, and aneurysm formation. The pulse in the arm is hard to detect. Patients with aortitis syndrome often exhibit retinopathy.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
