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 aim of this study is to evaluate clinical outcome of RFA for small single nodular HCC using no touch technique with separable clustered electrode (Octopus) in a prospective manner
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...
We characterized the microstructural response of the myocardium to cardiovascular disease using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and performed histological validation by intact, un-sectioned, three-dime...
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...
Despite substantial scientific effort, the relationship between stroke after coronary artery bypass grafting and the use of the aortic no-touch off-pump technique (anOPCAB) remains incompletely unders...
Although the Seattle Angina Questionnaire (SAQ) has been widely used to assess disease-specific health status in patients with ischemic heart disease, it was originally developed in a predominantly ma...
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.
