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...
Adequate support is required for challenging percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The ""Radial Ultra Support (RUS)"technique is a new support technique that provides active support b...
To investigate the impact of stent deformity induced by final kissing balloon technique (KBT) for coronary bifurcation lesions on in-stent restenosis (ISR).
During percutaneous coronary intervention, "buddy-in-jail" technique is often used to facilitate stent delivery in complex coronary artery lesions. However, the safety and efficacy of this technique w...
A rare complication following a tracheotomy is common carotid artery (CCA) pseudoaneurysm. There are many treatment modalities for CCA pseudoaneurysm including surgical repair and single-artery balloo...
Various percutaneous methods have been described for the retrieval of damaged stents; however, these methods can be complex and carry a risk of stent embolization or vascular damage. We present a simp...
We investigated the influence of the guidewire recrossing point on the incidence of incomplete stent apposition (ISA) after kissing balloon dilatation (KBD), and clinical and angiographic outcome at 9...
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.
