Topical Radial Artery Vasodilation

2014-08-27 03:12:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of the study is to facilitate radial artery access for cardiac catheterization. The investigators hypothesize that topical nitroglycerin and lidocaine will reduce radial artery spasm. Patients undergoing cardiac catheterization via the radial artery will be randomized to topical nitroglycerin + lidocaine versus placebo.

Off-label diagnostic and therapeutic utilization of perforated monorail balloon catheters in the catheterization laboratory.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures in which placement of CARDIAC CATHETERS is performed for therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.

A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of procaine but its duration of action is shorter than that of bupivacaine or prilocaine.

The pressure within a CARDIAC VENTRICLE. Ventricular pressure waveforms can be measured in the beating heart by catheterization or estimated using imaging techniques (e.g., DOPPLER ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY). The information is useful in evaluating the function of the MYOCARDIUM; CARDIAC VALVES; and PERICARDIUM, particularly with simultaneous measurement of other (e.g., aortic or atrial) pressures.

Imaging of a ventricle of the heart after the injection of a radioactive contrast medium. The technique is less invasive than cardiac catheterization and is used to assess ventricular function.

Procedure which includes placement of catheter, recording of intracardiac and intravascular pressure, obtaining blood samples for chemical analysis, and cardiac output measurement, etc. Specific angiographic injection techniques are also involved.
