Incidence of Nellix stent migration is uncommon despite absence of a proximal fixation mechanism. We present a case of intraoperative Nellix stent migration to highlight the potential complications. Our patient had renal artery occlusion and threatened limb stent perfusion as a result of intraoperative stent migration, with resultant prolapse of the Nellix endobag. We also present a successful salvage procedure to deploy an additional stent to restore limb stent flow.
To evaluate the safety and feasibility of ureteroscopy plus elective double-J stent as an outpatient procedure in an unselected population with regard to the treatment for ureteral calculi and to present a multivariate analysis of factors predict hospitalization.
In recent years, minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery has emerged as a novel approach to lowering intraocular pressure (IOP). This technique, which is usually reserved for mild to moderate cases, is less invasive than classic filtration surgery and potentially offers a better safety profile. The XEN Gel Stent is implanted through a minimally-invasive, ab interno procedure to create a subconjunctival pathway. Conjunctival tissue disruption is minimal and flow is restricted to avoid hypotony. Data on the optim...
Pancreatic complex deep injury extending to the main pancreatic duct (MPD), caused by strong external forces such as traffic accidents, is lethal without emergency surgery. However, the best surgical procedure for this serious injury has not been established. The Bracey procedure is a relatively simple reconstructive technique involving pancreaticogastrostomy, but it is often followed by postoperative complications, such as dilatation of the MPD caused by anastomotic stenosis, as well as subsequent serious ...
According to hedonic pricing theory (HPT) market forces operate on individual characteristics of a good, and the price of a product is the aggregate of the price across those characteristics. The relationship between price and characteristics remains poorly understood because characteristic qualities are hard to quantify, people have varying levels of information about characteristics, and people have heterogeneous preferences over characteristics. By analyzing data from a large, market-driven virtual world...
Since marketization of the refined oil price, the Chinese government has used refined oil price adjustments to control air pollution. Using an event study analysis, we examine whether these price adjustments have impacted air quality. We test the abnormal returns of 12 price adjustments between 2014 and 2015 in 51 major cities of China. The results show that the impact on air quality of refined oil price decreases is larger than the impact of oil price increases. Although results indicate air quality has de...
Recently, mechanical thrombectomy with stent retriever has achieved faster and higher rates of recanalization for intracranial major vessel occlusion. However, comparative studies of the most widely used Solitaire and Trevo stents have been rarely published.The authors retrospectively reviewed a total of 200 patients who performed mechanical thrombectomy at our center during 4 years and divided patients into 2 groups: mechanical thrombectomy with Solitaire stent (Group 1: Solitaire) and mechanical thrombect...
Ureteral stents are commonly used in urological practices but are frequently associated with patient discomfort, encrustation and stent-related infection. And a second procedure is needed to remove the stent. New biomaterials and designs have been attempted to solve these problems. The development of biodegradable ureteral stent shows promising prospects in future clinical applications. This article reviews the biomaterials and preparation methods commonly used in the present study of biodegradable ureteral...
A 35-year-old female presented to the emergency department with fevers and flank pain and was found on CT to have a retained ureteral stent that was placed during emergent ureteral repair 8 years prior. The stent was only faintly visible on CT and was completely radiolucent on fluoroscopy. We believe that the stent's radiopaque coating degraded and was lost after years of exposure to urine. This case suggests that a stent may become undetectable on standard imaging if left in place for a long enough period ...
A high prevalence (92.3%) of hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infection among HIV patients identified during a large HIV outbreak associated with injection of oxymorphone in Indiana prompted genetic analysis of HCV strains.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) combined with biliary stent showed therapeutic effect in the palliative treatment of unresectable cholangiocarcinoma (CC). We aimed to evaluate the survival outcomes and procedure-related complications of PDT compared to conventional stenting for CC patients.
The United States' Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that device manufacturers demonstrate 10 years of equivalent life duration for endovascular stents. Yet since the early 2000s clinical evidence of stent strut fracture defies the recommendations for these FDA approved devices. Stent strut fracture has been correlated with a higher incidence of adverse clinical events, such as in-stent thrombosis and in-stent restenosis.
The purpose of this study was to compare the stent deformation, obstruction of stent struts at a jailed side branch (SB) ostium, and stent strut malapposition after a repetitive proximal optimizing technique (re-POT) sequence between bifurcation lesions with and without stent links at SB ostia in ex vivo experimental setting.
Arterial injury related to stent strut is rare during stent-assisted coil embolization.
In 2015, Indiana expanded eligibility for Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through a unique waiver, Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0, which requires enrollees to make monthly contributions to an account that is similar to a health savings account to receive full benefits. Enrollees who fail to make these contributions receive less generous benefits if their income is below the federal poverty level, and if it is 100-138 percent of poverty, they are locked out of coverage for six months. We estimated th...
EUS-guided transmural drainage (EUS-TD) using a covered biflanged metal stent (CBFMS) and a conventional tubular biliary covered self-expandable metal stent (CSEMS) has recently been performed by EUS experts. However, appropriate traction force of the sheath to prevent the migration during stent deployment is well unknown. Herein, we assessed the anchoring force (AF) of the distal flange in CBFMSs and CSEMSs.
We describe a case of an infected popliteal artery stent with septic emboli presenting 6 years after peripheral vascular intervention for intermittent claudication. Management included resection of the stent and popliteal artery and revascularization by femoral-popliteal bypass with autogenous vein. This case demonstrates that peripheral stent infections can develop years after intervention. We performed an English language PUBMED literature review of arterial peripheral vascular stent infections on using t...
Stenting is one of the major treatments for malignant esophageal cancer. However, stent migration compromises clinical outcomes. A flared end design of the stent diminishes its migration. The goal of this work is to quantitatively characterize stent migration to develop new strategies for better clinical outcomes.
This work aims to investigate the effects of plaque eccentricity and composition on the stent performance and stress distributions of plaque and artery during stenting by the finite element method. Three-dimensional stent-plaque-artery models for plaques with five different eccentricities and four different compositions were simulated, and the influences on stent recoil, stent plastic strain, stent foreshortening, stress distributions of artery and plaque, and lumen gain were studied. The results show that ...
In an effort to relieve the pressure of drug shortages, the Chinese government implemented Low-price Medicines (LPM) policy to raise the price cap in July 2014. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of the implementation of this policy on drug price in China. Price data of 491 LPM, including 218 low-price chemical medicines (LPCM) and 273 low-price traditional Chinese medicines (LPTCM), were collected from 699 hospitals. We used interrupted time series design to identify the variation of monthl...
Perforated duodenal ulcers can be treated with a covered stent. Stent migration is a severe complication, sometimes requiring surgery. Pyloric physiology during stent treatment has not been studied and mechanisms for migration are unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the pyloric response to distention, mimicking stent treatment, using the EndoFLIP.
Traumatic carotid cavernous fistula(CCF)is known to present a direct connection between the cavernous segment of the internal carotid artery(ICA)and the cavernous sinus(CS). In rare cases, the fistula is formed between the intradural internal carotid artery(ICA)and the cavernous sinus(CS)via a pseudoaneurysm(pAN), requiring appropriate management and aggressive surgical treatment. We describe a 58-year-old man who sustained a severe head injury diagnosed as traumatic CCF treated with an intradural pAN proce...
Managing complex benign airway disease is a major challenge in interventional pulmonology. Airway stent placement can result in complications due to a variety of factors, including poor fit of the stent in the airway. We report the 1-year outcome of 2 patients with airway disease caused by granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's) affecting the left main bronchus and secondary carina. These patients had not responded to systemic therapy or standard bronchoscopic techniques and had complications with comm...
