T-provisional Stenting vs Mini-Crush in CTO

The aim is to compare the results of using T-provisional and Mini-Crush stenting techniques in patients with bifurcation lesions in the CTO segment.

Short Spot Versus Long Lesion Stenting as Best Treatment for Extensive Occlusive SFA Disease

Since the length of lesion seems to be negatively associated with stent patency due to restenosis, it is thought that the efficacy of treatment in patients with multiple (> 1) short (focal...

Modified T-Stenting With Szabo Technique Versus T-Stenting for Bifurcation Lesions in Coronary Heart Diseases

The study will compare clinical outcomes of modified T-stenting with Szabo technique with T-stenting for bifurcation lesions in coronary heart diseases.

Biliary Stenting With or Without Photodynamic Therapy in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced, Recurrent, or Metastatic Cholangiocarcinoma or Other Biliary Tract Tumors That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

RATIONALE: Biliary stenting is the placement of a tube in the bile ducts to keep a blocked area open. Photodynamic therapy uses a drug, such as porfimer sodium, that is absorbed by tumor c...

Pilot Prospective Study of Two Methods of Revascularization of the Femoral Artery (SFA): Stenting in the SFA, and Stenting of the SFA, Supplemented by Fasciotomy in Hunter Channel.

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...

Comparison of neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery to upfront surgery for thymic malignancy.

The oncological benefit of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in thymic malignancies remains unclear. We compared postoperative oncological outcomes of curative resection following neoadjuvant chemotherapy with...

Comparison of spot versus long stenting for femoropopliteal artery disease.

Optimal stenting strategy for long femoropopliteal artery lesions still remains undefined. Longer stent length has been shown to be associated with increased risk of restenosis. We sought to compare t...

Impact of degree of stenosis in May-Thurner syndrome on iliac vein stenting.

May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) patients with lifestyle-limiting symptoms undergo stenting of the iliac vein for relief of compressive disease. The impact of degree of stenosis on clinical symptoms and out...

A bibliometric analysis of the top 100 influential papers on carotid artery stenting.

Artery stenting is an effective therapy for carotid artery stenosis to prevent ischemic stroke. We aimed to identify and analyze the 100 top-cited papers published on carotid artery stenting (CAS), to...

Dural Venous Sinus Stenting for Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension: An updated Review.

Dural venous sinus stenting (DVSS) is an accepted treatment option in selected patients with medically refractory idiopathic intracranial hypertension and obstructive venous outflow physiology prior t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

A followup operation to examine the outcome of the previous surgery and other treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.

Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
