Prior registry data suggest that 4%-20% of patients require noncardiac surgery (NCS) within 2 years of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Contemporary data on NCS after PCI in the United States among women and men are limited. We determined the rate of early hospital readmission for NCS and associated outcomes in a large cohort of patients who underwent PCI in the United States.

Perioperative hypotension is associated with cardiovascular events in patients having noncardiac surgery, but it is unknown if the severity of preexisting coronary artery disease determines susceptibi...
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) may be performed in the same procedure as diagnostic coronary angiography (ad hoc PCI). This study aimed to evaluate current rates of ad hoc PCI use and associ...
Achieving the optimal apposition of coronary stents during percutaneous coronary intervention is not always feasible. The risks and benefits of stent postdilation in primary percutaneous coronary inte...
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery Improves Survival Without Increasing the Risk of Stroke in Patients with Ischemic Heart Failure in Comparison to Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: A Meta-Analysis With 54,173 Patients.
To evaluate whether there is any difference on the results of patients treated with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in the setting of ischemic heart ...
The treatment of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) using percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a frequent intervention with a high economic impact.
To determine the safety and feasibility of same day discharge after elective coronary percutaneous intervention in a selected stable patient population. The hypothesis to be tested is tha...
The investigators sought to discover which one of the following strategies is the safest for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention: paclitaxel-coated balloon+Genous stent;...
Recent guidelines of the ACC/AHA suggest that elective non-cardiac surgery (NCS) should optimally be delayed one year after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stent...
This study is a prospective, registry trial aimed to compare the clinical and angiographic outcomes of OCT-guided and angiography-guided PCI in patients with coronary DES-ISR.
Percutaneous coronary intervention is a safe procedure. However, its execution is manual, fully operator-dependent. The procedure is also associated with radiation exposure to patients and...
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
Action taken to reduce susceptibility or exposure to health problems and to detect and treat disease in early stages.
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
