The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on cardiac function in multi-vessel disease patients with concurrent chronic total occlus...
Randomized registry for the study of CTO PCI as adjunction to optimal medical therapy.
A chronic total occlusion (CTO) is common in patients with coronary artery disease. CTO recanalization has been shown to improve survival in comparison to failed CTO recanalization. Whethe...
The aim of this study is to investigate the role of functional evaluation for predicting clinical outcome in patients with coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) undergoing percutaneous co...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the SoundBite™ Crossing System - Coronary (SCS-C) in a subject population with chronic coronary artery disease inclu...
Limited study has detailed the procedural outcomes and utilization of contemporary coronary guidewires and microcatheters designed for chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous revascularization and ...
Chronic total occlusion continues to be a challenging lesion subset for percutaneous coronary intervention.
We investigated whether and to what extent stenosis of predominant collateral donor artery (PCDA) affects coronary collateral flow in relation to blood pressure (BP) in type 2 diabetic patients with c...
The effect of chronic kidney disease (CKD) on in-hospital outcomes of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has received limited study.
to assess the feasibility and safety of the left distal transradial artery (LDTRA) approach using a 7 Fr Glidesheath Slender for chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs...
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
A chronic inflammatory process that affects the AORTA and its primary branches, such as the brachiocephalic artery (BRACHIOCEPHALIC TRUNK) and CAROTID ARTERIES. It results in progressive arterial stenosis, occlusion, and aneurysm formation. The pulse in the arm is hard to detect. Patients with aortitis syndrome often exhibit retinopathy.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A chronic suppurative and cicatricial disease of the apocrine glands occurring chiefly in the axillae in women and in the groin and anal regions in men. It is characterized by poral occlusion with secondary bacterial infection, evolving into abscesses which eventually rupture. As the disease becomes chronic, ulcers appear, sinus tracts enlarge, fistulas develop, and fibrosis and scarring become evident.
