Ablative lesions are current treatments for epilepsy and brain tumors. Interstitial magnetic resonance (MR) guided focused ultrasound (iMRgFUS) may be an alternate ablation technique which limits ther...
Ultrasound guided peripheral intravenous catheters (USPIV) are frequently utilized in the Emergency Department (ED) and lead to reduced central venous catheter (CVC) placements. USPIVs, however, are r...
Accidental placement of Foley catheter in ureter is a rare phenomenon. It is more common in females with neurogenic bladder who have hypocontractile bladder or there can be iatrogenic placement during...
Successful catheter ablation is limited by both poor spatial resolution of abnormal local signals and inability to deliver an effective lesion due to poor tissue contact. We report first worldwide use...
The use of fluoroscopy in pediatric catheter ablation has decreased because of mapping systems. In this study, we present the efficiency and reliability of the electroanatomic mapping system in nonflu...
Objective: The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of complex fractionated atrial electrocardiograms (CFAEs) guided ablation to pulmonary vein isolation based ablat...
Obtaining intravenous access (IVA) is the most common procedure performed in the emergency department (ED). Placement of IVA allows for blood work and delivery of intravenous fluids and me...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy, safety and efficiency of CARTO® 3 system guided THERMOCOOL® catheter ablation and fluoroscopy guided Pulmonary Vein Ablation Cathete...
Central venous catheter (CVC) is an essential tool in the management of both medical and surgical patients. Establishing venous access is critically important and is sometimes technically ...
Difficult venous access in some patients such as those with obesity, IV drug use, chronic illness, or vascular pathology often causes increased discomfort and delayed patient care due to m...
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
