The primary objective is to determine if patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure with the GORE® HELEX® Septal Occluder / GORE® Septal Occluder plus antiplatelet medical management is safe an...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of the GORE HELEX(tm) Septal Occluder in the treatment of ostium secundum atrial septal defects (ASDs).
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with either a Patent Foramen Ovale [PFO] or an Atrial Septal Defect [ASD]. These are a type of hole located in the wall that separates t...
Participants enrolled in this study will have been diagnosed with patent foramen ovale (PFO) and have been scheduled to have a cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) such as a...
Among consecutive 47 cryptogenic stroke patients who underwent PFO closure, a serial follow-up bubble contrast TEE at 3 and 9 months after the index procedure was completed in 38 patients ...
Controversy has persisted for over a decade whether transcatheter patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure reduces the rate of recurrent ischemic stroke for patients who have had a cryptogenic ischemic stro...
Atrial septal device occluders such as amplatzer occluder have been designed to close atrial septal defects of paten formal ovale. Off label use of this device has been reported in pathological condit...
Ventricular septal defects are the most common congenital heart defect in children. As this method avoids sternotomy, the post-procedural morbidity is lower. However, transcatheter closure of perimemb...
A CATHETER-delivered implant used for closing abnormal holes in the cardiovascular system, especially HEART SEPTAL DEFECTS; or passageways intentionally made during cardiovascular surgical procedures.
An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
An abnormal anatomical passage that connects the VAGINA to other organs, such as the bladder (VESICOVAGINAL FISTULA) or the rectum (RECTOVAGINAL FISTULA).
Gray matter structures of the telencephalon and limbic system in the brain, but containing widely varying definitions among authors. Included here is the cortical septal area, subcortical SEPTAL NUCLEI, and the SEPTUM PELLUCIDUM. Many authorities consider the septal region to be made up of the septal area and the septal nuclei, but excluding the septum pellucidum. (Anthoney, Neuroanatomy and the Neurologic Exam, 1994, pp485-489; NeuroNames, http://rprcsgi.rprc.washington.edu/neuronames/index.html (November 18, 1998)).
Incomplete transposition of the great vessels in which both the AORTA and the PULMONARY ARTERY arise from the RIGHT VENTRICLE. The only outlet of the LEFT VENTRICLE is a large ventricular septal defect (VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS or VSD). The various subtypes are classified by the location of the septal defect, such as subaortic, subpulmonary, or noncommitted.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
