Visual deterioration is one of the disabling complications that can occur after carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the risk factors for newly developed v...
Angioplasty recanalisation is recommended as the first-line interventional procedure for Budd-Chiari syndrome, but subsequent restenosis is common. We aimed to test whether use of routine, non-selecti...
Endovascular treatment (EVT) by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) or stent is the first-line treatment for hepatic artery stenosis (HAS) after liver transplantation, but there are no guideli...
Studies have shown the benefits of rapid reperfusion therapy in acute myocardial infarction. However, there are still delays during transport of patients to primary angioplasty.
Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) are well established treatments that have been shown to decrease stroke recurrence in patients with underlying carotid artery di...
Minimal invasive treatment (called "endovascular") of the arteries of the lower limb remains problematic, because recurrent disease ("restenosis") frequently leads to recurrent symptoms. A...
Self Expanding Nitinol Stent Versus Percutaneous Transluminal Arterial Angioplasty (PTA) With Optional Bailout Stenting in Case of PTA Failure in Patients With Symptomatic Critical Limb Ischemia or Severe Intermittent Claudication (EXPAND)
The clinical investigation is a prospective, international, multi-centre, randomized (1:1) trial with follow up investigations at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months. Patients will be randomized either ...
The incidence of stent restenosis in the setting of primary angioplasty is particularly high, reaching a rate of 27% In the last years the introduction of drug-eluting stents has drast...
1. Does primary stenting have a lower 12-month restenosis rate than PTA alone in the treatment of atherosclerotic lesions of the popliteal artery? - Alternative hypothesis: "...
Comparison of two methods for revascularization of the superficial femoral artery: stenting of the superficial femoral artery vs. stenting of the superficial femoral artery supplemented wi...
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.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
A view of the world and the individual's environment as comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful, claiming that the way people view their life has a positive influence on their health.
The difference between two images on the retina when looking at a visual stimulus. This occurs since the two retinas do not have the same view of the stimulus because of the location of our eyes. Thus the left eye does not get exactly the same view as the right eye.
