The purpose of this study was to compare the stent deformation, obstruction of stent struts at a jailed side branch (SB) ostium, and stent strut malapposition after a repetitive proximal optimizing technique (re-POT) sequence between bifurcation lesions with and without stent links at SB ostia in ex vivo experimental setting.
This article was published in the following journal.
The purpose of the study was to develop a standardized and global bench test protocol to evaluate the biomechanical characteristics of the most currently used drug-eluting coronary stents.
Certain coronary anomalies have been associated with sudden cardiac death. Anomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) from the posterior non-coronary aortic cusp is exceedingly rare. Through ...
Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance image (MRI) data have been widely used to for navigation in various neurosurgical operations. However, delicate intracranial structures cannot be dis...
The aim of this study was to investigate the multimodality imaging features of retinal cavernous hemangiomas (RCHs).
To determine the clinical relevance of vulnerable plaque using OCT in patients with coronary bifurcation lesion.
Comparison of healing responses after treatment of complex bifurcation lesions with a dedicated bifurcation device (Axxess™ Biolimus Eluting Coronary Bifurcation Stent System + Absorb BV...
The IBS registry is an observational, multi-center, real-world registry of stenting in coronary bifurcation lesions that will collect information on procedures and outcomes from various pa...
The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether bifurcation stenting guided by on-line three-dimensional optical frequency domain imaging (3D-OFDI) is superior to that with angio...
The study aims to assess whether a SIMPLE or a COMPLEX strategy is best for the treatment of coronary bifurcation stenoses.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
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.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
An imaging test of the BILIARY TRACT in which a contrast dye (RADIOPAQUE MEDIA) is injected into the BILE DUCT and x-ray pictures are taken.
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...
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. &...
