The purpose of this study is to evaluate a stenting material called Nasopore. This is a synthetic material approved by FDA for use as a stent in postoperative sinus surgery patients. Thi...
This study is a prospective, open-label, multi-center, registry study, designed to show that rescue stenting is safe and effective for emergency large vessel occlusion (ELVO) patients who ...
The objective of PERFECTO is to assess the reendothelialization at 3 months after successfully CTO percutaneous intervention (PCI) with new generation drug eluting stent (DES) by OFDI anal...
The investigators evaluated whether primary implantation of a self-expanding nitinol stent yielded anatomical and clinical benefits superior to those afforded by percutaneous transluminal ...
Since the length of lesion seems to be negatively associated with stent patency due to restenosis, it is thought that the efficacy of treatment in patients with multiple (> 1) short (focal...
Prior literature has recommended routine iliac vein stent extension into the inferior vena cava (IVC) to assure adequate outflow for iliac vein stenting procedures. Our bias was that only the lesion s...
A 60-year-old male presented with complaints of a non-healing wound on his right shin. Initial angiography showed a 100% occlusion of the right superficial femoral artery thought to be thrombotic in n...
The treatment of chronic total occlusion of coronary arteries by percutaneous coronary intervention (CTO PCI) is one of the most representative technical advances in ischemic cardiomyopathy of last de...
Use of angioscopy to directly observe the stent lumen in the chronic phase after carotid artery stenting (CAS) has not been reported to date. Here we report three patients in whom angioscopy helped co...
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
An occlusion resulting in overstrain and injury to teeth, periodontal tissue, or other oral structures.
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.
Dental occlusion in which the occlusal contact of the teeth on the working side of the jaw is accompanied by the harmonious contact of the teeth on the opposite (balancing) side. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p556)
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
