This study aims to investigate the clinical effect of the new saphenous vein harvesting technique "No-touch" in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting(OPCABG), comparing to the conventio...
The non touch technique is a modification of the traditional intrauterine device insertion technique. It abolishes the use of Allis and uterine sounding.
This study evaluates the short-term patency of vein graft harvested by the No-Touch technique compared to that by the conventional approach in patients undergoing isolated on-pump coronary...
This is a randomized controlled prospective study on the use of therapeutic touch in patients diagnosed with gynecological cancer. The patients will be randomized into three groups: contro...
Coronary artery surgery (CABG) is necessary to improve blood circulation in many patients with coronary artery disease. This is done by using alternative blood vessels (grafts) to bypass t...
The no-touch technique of saphenous vein harvesting involves harvesting the vein as a pedicled graft, together with its surrounding adipose tissue, while avoiding direct contact and excessive high-pre...
Two-dimensional (2D) stress echocardiography is well established in the assessment of patients with ischemic heart disease. However, in a number of patients, this technique results in nondiagnostic te...
In the mid-1990s, a novel saphenous vein harvesting technique, in which the vein is harvested with its surrounding tissue without manual distention, was introduced. This no-touch technique provides an...
Although percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are both commonly employed in the treatment of stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD), their ability to reduc...
Cardiovascular disease is the most prevalent public health problem on a worldwide scale, and ischemic heart disease accounts for approximately one-half of these events in high-income countries. One of...
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.
A form of fluorescent antibody technique commonly used to detect serum antibodies and immune complexes in tissues and microorganisms in specimens from patients with infectious diseases. The technique involves formation of an antigen-antibody complex which is labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody. (From Bennington, Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)
A technique in which tissue is rendered resistant to the deleterious effects of prolonged ischemia and reperfusion by prior exposure to brief, repeated periods of vascular occlusion. (Am J Physiol 1995 May;268(5 Pt 2):H2063-7, Abstract)
A vasodilator used in angina of effort or ischemic heart disease.
A personality assessment technique in which the subject or observer indicates the degree to which a standardized set of descriptive statements actually describes the subject. The term reflects "sorting" procedures occasionally used with this technique.
