This is a prospective, multi-center, observational registry to document the baseline, 24-hour and 30-day inflammatory response and procedural outcomes out to 12 month follow-up after femor...
This is a retrospective, multicenter, study including patients undergone to one or more percutaneous revascularization after OHT. The rate of restenosis, the kind of percutaneous revascula...
Restenosis is still an issue after endovascular revascularization for femoropopliteal occlusive disease. One approach to reduce the rates of restenosis and reintervention is local applicat...
To determine the effect of three different percutaneous revascularization strategies (Balloon Cryoplasty vs. Stent Placement vs. Atherectomy) in the treatment of lifestyle limiting lower e...
In patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) the treatment goal is revascularization of the occluded artery with the use of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)....
To analyze the percutaneous revascularization strategy for severe lesions in the secondary branches (SB) (diameter ≥ 2mm) of major epicardial arteries compared with conservative treatment.
Described in the article is a clinical case report regarding revascularization of the entire arterial bed of the lower extremity in a male patient presenting with multifocal atherosclerosis, stenoses ...
The femoropoliteal segment is a common target for endovascular intervention and the unique biomechanical forces on the arteries increase the risk of restenosis This large meta-analysis supports drug c...
Claudication and critical limb threatening ischemia (CLTI) are significant causes of mortality in the elderly. The gold standard of superficial femoral artery (SFA) revascularization is thus far consi...
The optimal catheter-directed therapy for femoropopliteal in-stent restenosis (ISR) remains controversial with limited durability. The natural history of untreated ISR is not well characterized. We ev...
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
Microsurgical revascularization to improve intracranial circulation. It usually involves joining the extracranial circulation to the intracranial circulation but may include extracranial revascularization (e.g., subclavian-vertebral artery bypass, subclavian-external carotid artery bypass). It is performed by joining two arteries (direct anastomosis or use of graft) or by free autologous transplantation of highly vascularized tissue to the surface of the brain.
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.
Surgical removal of large KIDNEY CALCULI by means of a percutaneous nephroscope which is passed into the KIDNEY PELVIS through a track created in the patient's back.
Excision, in part or whole, of an intervertebral disk. The most common indication is disk displacement or herniation. In addition to standard surgical removal, it can be performed by percutaneous diskectomy (DISKECTOMY, PERCUTANEOUS) or by laparoscopic diskectomy, the former being the more common.
