BACKGROUND: CHRONIC TOTAL OCCLUSION (CTO) RECANALIZATION IS A COMPLEX AND TECHNICALLY CHALLENGING PROCEDURE. THE J-CTO SCORE HAS BEEN PROPOSED TO STRATIFY CASE COMPLEXITY AND PROCEDURAL SUCCESS RATES....
Diabetes mellitus is associated with an increased risk of adverse clinical outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The prognosis of patients with diabetes mellitus and chronic total o...
Successful revascularization of chronic total occlusions has been associated with improved left ventricular systolic function, reduced anginal symptoms, increased exercise capacity, and increased surv...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE:Basilar artery occlusion remains one of the most devastating subtypes of ischemic stroke. The prognosis is poor if early recanalization is not achieved. The purpose of this stud...
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.
