The utilization of everolimus-eluting coronary stents in a coronary artery diseases is effective in reducing both repeat revascularization and major adverse cardiac events within two year follow-up. To evaluate the procedural, short and long term clinical outcomes of multiple everolimus-eluting coronary stent implantation in long (>30mm) coronary lesions.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the safety and efficacy of coronary stent implantation using Everolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System (Abbott, Boston Scientific) is not i...
Primary intracoronary stent placement after successfully crossing chronic total coronary occlusions (CTO) decreases the high restenosis rate at long-term follow-up compared with convention...
This randomized study is a multi-center, randomized, study to compare the efficacy of sirolimus versus everolimus-eluting stent implantation for long coronary lesions.
The purpose of this study is to use a high-resolution intracoronary imaging modality, called optical coherence tomography (OCT) to examine two different types of coronary artery stents use...
A prospective Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) study on the completeness of strut coverage and vessel wall response, at different time points (3-6-9 Months), following TAXUS Liberte sten...
It remains controversial whether coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) should be optimized to treat coronary artery disease in patients on chronic hemodialysi...
The introduction of the bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) has led to new avenues of coronary intervention; however, there have been concerns raised regarding the mechanical properties of BVS and t...
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is one of the leading disorders with the highest mortality rate. Percutaneous angioplasty and stent implantation are the currently available standard methods for the treat...
To evaluate the predictive value of Type D personality on in-stent restenosis (ISR) rates at 1- and 2-year post percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).
The aim of this study was to evaluate the accumulation of optical coherence tomography (OCT)-macrophages and OCT findings after CoCr everolimus-eluting stent placement, in addition to coronary risk fa...
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
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.
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. &...
