The DynamX stent study is a consecutive enrolling, prospective, multicenter clinical trial recruiting up to 50 patients at up to 10 international sites. Patients that require treatment of...
Comparison of safety and long-term effects of BioMimeTM stent and Ultimaster® stent with Xience® stent
Prospective, randomized, controlled, single-blinded, parallel two-arm, multicenter trial. Test arm: XIENCE V® Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent System(stent length: 18mm, diameter: 3.0mm...
The primary objective of this trial is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Boston Scientific Corporation (BSC) ELUVIA Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent System (ELUVIA Stent) for trea...
We sought to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of drug-eluting stent in large vessels compared with bare metal stent.
The optimal approach at treating infected biliary stents at the time of cholangitis remains unknown. This study aims to compare the efficacy of stent exchange versus stent sweeping/stent-in-stent appr...
Recent studies suggested that suboptimal delivery and longitudinal stent deformation can result in in-stent restenosis. Therefore, the purpose of this paper was to study the effect of stent geometry o...
To date, clinical and experimental studies of stent-graft migration have focused on aortic morphology and blood flow. However, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is not an instant fixation of...
To investigate the dosimetric distribution characteristics of (125)I seed stents with different seed spacing, diameter and length, as well as different (125)I seed activity. The dosimetry table of (12...
The new and thickened layer of scar tissue that forms on a PROSTHESIS, or as a result of vessel injury especially following ANGIOPLASTY or stent placement.
Surgical construction of an artificial opening (stoma) for external fistulization of a duct or vessel by insertion of a tube with or without a supportive stent.
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
A type of surgical portasystemic shunt to reduce portal hypertension with associated complications of esophageal varices and ascites. It is performed percutaneously through the jugular vein and involves the creation of an intrahepatic shunt between the hepatic vein and portal vein. The channel is maintained by a metallic stent. The procedure can be performed in patients who have failed sclerotherapy and is an additional option to the surgical techniques of portocaval, mesocaval, and splenorenal shunts. It takes one to three hours to perform. (JAMA 1995;273(23):1824-30)
The shortest and widest portion of the SMALL INTESTINE adjacent to the PYLORUS of the STOMACH. It is named for having the length equal to about the width of 12 fingers.
