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; > 1 and < 5 cm) SFA lesions can be improved by spot stenting as compared to the use of one long stent. This study proposes to evaluate the endovascular treatment for patients with SFA lesions by comparing two strategies for patients with extensive occlusive SFA disease; 1) short spot (SS) stenting or 2) long lesion (LL) stenting.

Most doctors who use the new drug-eluting stents for the treatment of long coronary narrowings tend to cover the full length of the lesion with long or multiple stents. The investigators h...

Tandem occlusion is defined by an acute ischemic stroke (AIS) with concomitant steno-occlusive disease of the extra cranial carotid artery and concerned about 10% of AIS patients. Whereas ...
Restenosis and stent fractures are well-characterised treatment failures following femoropopliteal (FP) stent-based interventions. We aimed to determine patterns of restenosis and fracture rates follo...
The present study aimed to investigate the difference in target lesion failure (TLF) at 3 years after double kissing (DK) crush stenting versus provisional stenting (PS) for unprotected left main dist...
Common femoral artery (CFA) stenting appears as a promising alternative treatment to the open surgery for de novo CFA stenosis. Whereas, the stenting of lesions just located at the CFA is simple, sten...
To technically review and explore long-term follow-up results of Aqueductoplasty and Stenting under Flexible Neuroendoscope in infantile obstructive hydrocephalus.
Several protocols for angioplasty and stenting for stenosis of an innominate artery (IA) are reported, but the protocols are sometimes complicated and have disadvantages. We report a case of IA stenos...
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 macular lesion on the side of the FACE, involving the CONJUNCTIVA and EYELIDS, as well as the adjacent facial skin, SCLERA; OCULOMOTOR MUSCLES; and PERIOSTEUM. Histological features vary from those of a MONGOLIAN SPOT to those of a BLUE NEVUS.
Metacentric chromosomes produced during MEIOSIS or MITOSIS when the CENTROMERE splits transversely instead of longitudinally. The chromosomes produced by this abnormal division are one chromosome having the two long arms of the original chromosome, but no short arms, and the other chromosome consisting of the two short arms and no long arms. Each of these isochromosomes constitutes a simultaneous duplication and deletion.
A malabsorption syndrome resulting from extensive operative resection of the SMALL INTESTINE, the absorptive region of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.
An insulin preparation that is designed to provide immediate and long term glycemic control in a single dosage. Biphasic insulin typically contains a mixture of REGULAR INSULIN or SHORT-ACTING INSULIN combined with a LONG-ACTING INSULIN.
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...
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. &...
