The treatment of complicated chronic aortic dissection remains controversial. We previously reported encouraging early results with the stent-assisted balloon-induced intimal disruption and relamination of aortic dissection (STABILISE) technique for treating complicated acute aortic dissections. However, to date there have been no specific reports on the treatment of complicated chronic aortic dissections with this technique. The aim of this study was to assess the results of the STABILISE technique to treat complicated chronic aortic dissection.

Described is a complication of rescue left main coronary stenting due to threatened left main closure following a "valve in valve" TAVR procedure. Left main stent post dilatation with a NC Trek balloo...
We report a case of a 77-year-old man with small lymphocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia (SLL/CLL) thought to be in remission who developed an acute type A thoracic aortic dissection despite...
Stanford type-A aortic dissection is a clinical emergency; mortality is high, and surgery is urgently required in most cases. Chronic forms of type-A dissection are rare and have a poor prognosis if n...
We present a case of an 85-year-old woman with bilateral limb-threatening ischemia caused by acute-on-chronic occlusion of the infrarenal aorta. The patient once underwent endovascular recanalization ...
The efficacy of hemiarch replacement combined with a modified triple-branched stent graft in Debakey type I aortic dissection remains to be confirmed.
Percutaneous angioplasty with balloon dilation is the method of choice for the treatment of most femoropopliteal artery lesions. After balloon dilatation, arterial wall dissection with flo...
Balloon predilatation of the aortic valve has been regarded as an essential step during the transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) procedure. However, recent evidence suggested tha...
This study is designed to monitor the safety and performance of the V8 balloon when used as a postdilatation balloon in self-expanding Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) device...
The objective of this study is to compare treatment with an endograft prothesis versus antihypertensive treatment in patients with a dissection of the thoracic aorta.
Background and Study Aims: Biliary strictures are a major cause of morbidity following liver transplantation with an overall incidence between 10 and 30 %. Up to now biliary strictures wer...
Counterpulsation in which a pumping unit synchronized with the patient's electrocardiogram rapidly fills a balloon in the aorta with helium or carbon dioxide in early diastole and evacuates the balloon at the onset of systole. As the balloon inflates, it raises aortic diastolic pressure, and as it deflates, it lowers aortic systolic pressure. The result is a decrease in left ventricular work and increased myocardial and peripheral perfusion.
An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the ABDOMINAL AORTA which gives rise to the visceral, the parietal, and the terminal (iliac) branches below the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.
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).
An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of AORTA.
An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the THORACIC AORTA. This proximal descending portion of aorta gives rise to the visceral and the parietal branches above the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
