Optimal stenting strategy for long femoropopliteal artery lesions still remains undefined. Longer stent length has been shown to be associated with increased risk of restenosis. We sought to compare the efficacy of spot versus long stenting in the treatment of femoropopliteal artery disease.

The optimal strategy for treating ostial left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) disease remains matter of speculation. We evaluated the impact on long-term outcomes of ostial LAD disease treat...
Results from studies investigating the effect of contralateral carotid artery occlusion (CCO) in patients with carotid artery stenosis undergoing carotid artery endarterectomy (CEA) or carotid artery ...
Artery stenting is an effective therapy for carotid artery stenosis to prevent ischemic stroke. We aimed to identify and analyze the 100 top-cited papers published on carotid artery stenting (CAS), to...
Limited data are available regarding the long-term clinical outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using second-generation drug-eluting stents (DESs) versus coronary artery bypass grafti...
To examine the association between a contralateral carotid artery occlusion (CCO) and the rates of subsequent target-lesion restenosis and revascularization after carotid artery stenting (CAS).
- Prospective, randomized, controlled, multi-center study - A total of 220 subjects with long femoropopliteal lesions will be included according to inclusion and exclusion criter...
Since the length of lesion seems to be negatively associated with stent patency due to restenosis, it is thought that the efficacy of treatment in patients with multiple (> 1) short (focal...
Comparison of Safety and Efficacy of Coronary Drug-coated Balloon (DCB) Combined With Spot Stenting of Drug-eluting Stent (DES) Versus Second-generation DES for Treating Diffuse Coronary Artery Lesions: a Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Clinical Trial
The prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of paclitaxel-eluting PTCA-balloon catheter (SeQuent® Please) combined with provisional spo...
Most doctors who use the new drug-eluting stents for the treatment of long coronary narrowings tend to cover the full length of the lesion with long or multiple stents. The investigators h...
The objective of this study is to compare remote superficial femoral artery endarterectomy with suprageniculate bypass surgery in the treatment of long occlusions of the superficial femora...

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
A chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous disease usually affecting the female genitalia (VULVAR LICHEN SCLEROSUS) and BALANITIS XEROTICA OBLITERANS in males. It is also called white spot disease and Csillag's disease.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
