Name: Coronary artery disease
Ultrasound-guided PCNL in Galdakao-modified supine Valdivia (GMSV) position has taken into consideration during the last decade; however, guidewire slippage during tract dilatation is still a big conc...
This study was performed to investigate lesion characteristics and procedural outcomes of re-attempted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO). Prior failure of perc...
Despite an incidence of about 15% of the patients undergoing coronary angiography, total chronic occlusions (CTO) are rarely revascularized by percutaneous angioplasty (PCI). Nevertheless, current evi...
Endoscopic access to the common bile duct remains difficult in 10% of cases undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography (ERCP). In the current study, we evaluated the effectiveness of ...
We investigated the impact of renal function on outcomes after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty.
To assess the relative long-term safety and efficacy of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery in patients with multivessel d...
FIT (Fast Infarction Treatment): Complete Revascularization During Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Can be Achieved Safely With an Improved Clinical Outcome During the Indexed Hospitalization.
Few reports described outcomes of complete compared with infarct related artery (IRA) only revascularization in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and multivessel co...
The main objectives of the study are: To evaluate the performance and safety of the CiTop guidewire, while attempting to cross thru total occlusions of various dimensions and morphology. ...
The intention of this trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of Drug Eluting Balloon (DEB) application (SeQuent Please) to the side branch in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) o...
This study is an investigator-initiated study. The study will be performed as a prospective, randomized, controlled multi-center trial to evaluate the safety and efficiency of Xpert stents...
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.
Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are invasive or surgical in nature, and require the expertise of a specially trained radiologist. In general, they are more invasive than diagnostic imaging but less invasive than major surgery. They often involve catheterization, fluoroscopy, or computed tomography. Some examples include percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, percutaneous transthoracic biopsy, balloon angioplasty, and arterial embolization.
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.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
