The dual-antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) score was developed to identify patients more likely to derive harm (score
Diabetes mellitus is known to be associated with worse clinical outcomes in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (D...
Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) has represented for decades the cornerstone of treatment for the prevention of ischemic complications, including stent thrombosis, in patients undergoing percutaneous ...
In patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the effectiveness and safety of dual compared with triple antithrombotic therapy are a matter of debate, espec...
Efficacy and Safety of New Generation Drug Eluting Stents Associated With an Ultra Short Duration of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy. Design of the Short Duration of Dual antiplatElet Therapy With SyNergy II Stent in Patients Older Than 75 Years Undergoing Perc
The main objective of the SENIOR study is to establish the efficacy and safety of the everolimus eluting stent with a biodegradable abluminal polymer (SYNERGY II) associated with a short d...
To determine the rate of symptomatic and asymptomatic gastrointestinal erosions and ulcerations in patients on dual antiplatelet (aspirin and clopidogrel) therapy after percutaneous corona...
The DAPT Study is a double blind randomized controlled trial intended to determine the appropriate duration for dual antiplatelet therapy (the combination of aspirin and a second anti-clot...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of reducing dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) duration to 1 month after implantation of the everolimus-eluting cobalt-chromium stent (CoC...
Performance of Bioresorbable Polymer-Coated Everolimus-Eluting Synergy® Stent in Patients at High Bleeding Risk Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Revascularization Followed by 1-Month Dual Antiplatelet Therapy
Objective: To evaluate the safety of bioresorbable polymer-coated everolimus-eluting Synergy® stent followed by 1-month dual antiplatelet therapy in patients at high-bleeding risk. ...
A hematopoietic growth factor which promotes proliferation and maturation of neutrophil granulocytes. Clinically it is effective in decreasing the incidence of febrile neutropenia in patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive therapy or in reducing the duration of neutropenia and neutropenia-related clinical sequelae in patients with non-myeloid malignancies undergoing myeloblastive chemotherapy followed by BMT. It has also been used in AIDS patients with CMV retinitis being treated with GANCICLOVIR. (Gelman CR, Rumack BH & Hess AJ (eds): DRUGDEX(R) System.

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.
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.
Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.
Assistance in managing and monitoring drug therapy for patients receiving treatment for cancer or chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes, consulting with patients and their families on the proper use of medication; conducting wellness and disease prevention programs to improve public health; overseeing medication use in a variety of settings.
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs. The scope of...
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
