This study is designed to determine if an intracervical balloon catheter (IBC) is better than oxytocin for induction of labor in the setting of premature rupture of membranes (PROM) or bre...
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of using intracervical balloon catheters for cervical ripening as part of labour induction in healthy, GBS-negative women with prela...
When oligohydramnion - decreased amniotic fluid, is diagnosed at term pregnancies, the common practice is to induce labor. Whenever the cervix is not ripened, there are several methods to ...
The Advance® 18 PTX® Balloon Catheter study is a clinical trial to study the safety and effectiveness of the Advance 18® PTX® Balloon Catheter in the treatment of lesions in the superf...
Endoscopic bile duct stone (BDS) removal is a well-established treatment; however, the preference for basket or balloon catheters for extraction is operator-dependent It is reported that c...
Data on urethral catheter related injuries is sparse. In this study we aimed to characterise urethral diametric strain and urinary catheter inflation pressure thresholds that precede human urethral tr...
Crossing a nascently deployed carotid artery stent (CAS) is required to perform angioplasty and filter recapture. If the traversing balloon or filter recapture catheters are eccentric or tangentially ...
To identify predictors of successful cervical ripening using double-balloon catheter (DBC) for labor induction among women with previous cesarean delivery (PCD) and unfavorable cervix at term.
The Inoue balloon technique is the standard technique for mitral valve balloon commissurotomy at this stage. However, the hardware for this technique is expensive and may not always be available in re...
Widening of a stenosed HEART VALVE by the insertion of a balloon CATHETER into the valve and inflation of the balloon.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
Use of a balloon catheter to block the flow of blood through an artery or vein.
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
