Gastrointestinal malignancies have been a tremendous problem in the medical field and cover a wide variety of parts of the system, (i.e. esophagus, duodenum, intestines, and rectum). Usually, these ma...
CASE DESCRIPTION A 10-year-old spayed female Rottweiler was referred for evaluation because of a 2-month history of regurgitation and weight loss, despite no apparent change in appetite. The dog had r...
Various percutaneous methods have been described for the retrieval of damaged stents; however, these methods can be complex and carry a risk of stent embolization or vascular damage. We present a simp...
Newer generation of self-expandable nitinol coronary stents has proven to be useful in the treatment of bifurcations, tapered vessels, thrombotic lesions, venous grafts and ectatic segments. However, ...
An antitumor drug/esophagus stent combination can palliatively relieve malignant esophageal stricture and exert local chemotherapy to cancer. It is vital for effective treatment of cancer to control d...
The investigators evaluated whether primary implantation of a self-expanding nitinol stent yielded anatomical and clinical benefits superior to those afforded by percutaneous transluminal ...
The objective of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the short-term (up to 12 months) outcome of treatment by means of the self-expanding iVolution nitinol stent in symptomatic (Rut...
Long-term, observational, prospective, multicenter registry following patients who have been implanted with the SUPERA Interwoven Self-Expanding Nitinol Stent for treating stenosis in the ...
The GoldenFlow (Lifetech Scientific, Shenzhen, China) is a novel woven-nitinol stent designed to have superior radial strength, flexibility and durability compared to standard nitinol sten...
The objective of the BIOFLEX-COF trial is to investigate differences in formation of intimal hyperplasia at one and two years after implantation of nitinol-stents with high vs. low COF in ...
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
An orthodontic method used for correcting narrow or collapsed maxillary arches and functional cross-bite. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry),
A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.
Microbial antigens that have in common an extremely potent activating effect on T-cells that bear a specific variable region. Superantigens cross-link the variable region with class II MHC proteins regardless of the peptide binding in the T-cell receptor's pocket. The result is a transient expansion and subsequent death and anergy of the T-cells with the appropriate variable regions.
An increased number of contiguous trinucleotide repeats in the DNA sequence from one generation to the next. The presence of these regions is associated with diseases such as FRAGILE X SYNDROME and MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY. Some CHROMOSOME FRAGILE SITES are composed of sequences where trinucleotide repeat expansion occurs.
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
