Safety and Efficacy of Atherectomy on VasculaR Functions

2019-09-23 04:51:43 | BioPortfolio


Interventional strategies aim to restore tissue perfusion. However, despite the simple reopening of a narrowed artery they affect endothelial function, perpetuating dysfunctional vascular homeostasis. PTA and atherectomy might alter the endothelial function but the mechanisms are incompletely understood. The primary goal of atherectomy is vessel preparation and improving compliance, which could aid in preserving vessel functions. Aim of this study is to determine safety, efficacy, patency and vessel functions in the femoropopliteal artery following atherectomy and DCB.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.

A respiratory stimulant that enhances respiration by acting as an agonist of peripheral chemoreceptors located on the carotid bodies. The drug increases arterial oxygen tension while decreasing arterial carbon dioxide tension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may also prove useful in the treatment of nocturnal oxygen desaturation without impairing the quality of sleep.

Lack of perfusion in the EXTREMITIES resulting from atherosclerosis. It is characterized by INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION, and an ANKLE BRACHIAL INDEX of 0.9 or less.

Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of medium and large muscular ARTERIES with lesions in the innermost layer of the artery (ARTERIAL INTIMA). This disease process of atherogenesis includes the retention of cholesterol-rich LIPOPROTEINS and their binding to PROTEOGLYCANS in the arterial intima, generation of proinflammatory molecules that recruit MACROPHAGES to the subendothelial space, formation of FOAM CELLS, and eventual calcification of the arterial wall. These arterial plaques (atheromas) contain CARBOHYDRATES; BLOOD; and CALCIUM.
