The use of DES have not diminished the need of improved treatment strategies , especially the treatment of bifurcation lesions still leave much to be clarified. Particularly, for bifurcati...
The aims of this study are: 1) To identify more resistant the guidewire type to the retrieval maneuvers after the jailing. 2) To determined anatomic and technical factors influencing the ...
The purpose of the present study is to investigate if intentional strategy (a more aggressive side branch protection strategy: primary two-stent or jailed balloon technique) is associated ...
The objective of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of two different approaches to treat bifurcational lesions with CYPHER SELECT™ Sirolimus-eluting Balloon-expandable...
Treatment of bifurcation coronary lesions may be challenging, and the best technique to be used in these settings remains to be established. While a single stent strategy is simpler and ha...
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 te...
The KBI (kissing balloon inflation) technique is considered the default strategy for the two-stent approach in real world practice. Studies comparing KBI and No-KBI in patients undergoing the one-sten...
Following an era of the use of several drug-coated balloons in angioplasty, "leave nothing behind" and stent-less strategies have been gaining attention. In stent-less strategies, it is necessary to a...
First pass complete (mTICI 3) reperfusion must be regarded as the ultimate goal in mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in patients suffering from an emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO). With this in mind...
A new Low-profile Visualized Intraluminal Support device (LVIS Blue) is a braided stent that provides a higher degree of metal coverage. This stent may be beneficial for complete obliteration of an an...
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
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).
Technique that utilizes low-stringency polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification with single primers of arbitrary sequence to generate strain-specific arrays of anonymous DNA fragments. RAPD technique may be used to determine taxonomic identity, assess kinship relationships, analyze mixed genome samples, and create specific probes.
