Elevated left atrial (LA) filling pressures are associated with poor prognosis in patients with heart failure (HF). Recent evidences have shown that, in this setting, the presence of restrictive small...
The ductus arteriosus is a lifeline for the developing fetus prior to delivery, allowing the circulation of oxygen-rich blood from the placenta to bypass the lungs and perfuse the body. However, when ...
All types of heart failure are associated with reduced cardiac output and/or increased left atrial (LA) pressure. In diastolic heart failure (heart failure with preserved ejection fraction [HFpEF]), t...
Transcatheter atrial septal defect (ASD) device closure has gained increasing popularity over the past decades due to shorter hospital stay and the absence of skin scars. However, concern about the se...
Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) is a common cardiac diagnosis among adults.Three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (3D-TEE) improve the visualization of ASD, its rims and surrounding...
The purpose of this study is to examine the role of ShuntCheck and MR Imaging in evaluating the presence or absence of Shunt Obstruction in the patients of Hydrocephalus or Idiopathic Intr...
Complications in patients with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunts are common. Thus, these patients are frequently admitted for suspicion of a shunt dysfunction (SD). However, the symptoms of...
To prospectively investigate the effect and safety of implantation of the AADI glaucoma tube in eyes with medically intractable glaucoma in the period 2019 to 2020, at the Department of Op...
The Keystone Heart TriGuard™ device is an aortic embolism deflection device intended to reduce the amount of embolic material that may enter the carotid, subclavian, and vertebral arteri...
Surgical venous shunt between the portal and systemic circulation to effect decompression of the portal circulation. It is performed primarily in the treatment of bleeding esophageal varices resulting from portal hypertension. Types of shunt include portacaval, splenorenal, mesocaval, splenocaval, left gastric-caval (coronary-caval), portarenal, umbilicorenal, and umbilicocaval.
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
Surgical fistulization of the membranous labyrinth of the inner ear with mastoid, subarachnoid or cochlear shunt. This procedure is used in the treatment of MENIERE DISEASE.
Impaired or delayed impulse conduction between the right and left HEART ATRIA. Advanced interatrial blocks are often associated with arrhythmias (e.g., ATRIAL FLUTTER; and ATRIAL FIBRILLATION), direct conduction block via the Bachmann's bundle and concomitant left atrial enlargement. Syndrome of advanced interatrial block associated with SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA is referred to as Bayes syndrome.
An adverse effect occurring with a medical treatment that is not attributable to the actions of the treatment.
