The objective of the study is to evaluate the process of early re-endothelialization of the Coroflex® ISAR Drug-eluting stent compared with the Ultimaster® Drug-eluting stent
The main objective of the study is to determine whether PCI for in-stent restenosis with a drug eluting balloon is angiographically non-inferior to PCI with a drug eluting stent at 6 month...
The investigators hypothesize that in a real-world population undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for de-novo stenoses in small native vessels with a diameter
Investigators try to assess the safety of 6-months or 12-months maintenance of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT, aspirin + clopidogrel) in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interven...
Comparison of safety and long-term effects of BioMimeTM stent and Ultimaster® stent with Xience® stent
This study sought to evaluate the optimal treatment for in-stent restenosis (ISR) of drug-eluting stents (DESs).
This study aimed to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of current evidence comparing the drug-eluting stent (DES) with the bare-metal stent (BMS) in the treatment of femoropopliteal artery ...
The benefit of drug-eluting stents (DES) versus drug-coated balloons (DCB) in coronary artery in-stent restenosis (ISR) for the prevention of target lesion revascularization (TLR), stent thrombosis, a...
To evaluate the 1-year clinical outcomes of patients treated with 2.0 mm drug-coated balloon (DCB) vs 2.0 mm drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in small-caliber vessel de novo coronary artery disea...
Treatment of calcified femoropopliteal lesions remains challenging, even in the era of drug-eluting balloon angioplasty. Lesion recoil and dissections after standard balloon angioplasty in calcific le...
Ticlopidine is an effective inhibitor of platelet aggregation. The drug has been found to significantly reduce infarction size in acute myocardial infarcts and is an effective antithrombotic agent in arteriovenous fistulas, aorto-coronary bypass grafts, ischemic heart disease, venous thrombosis, and arteriosclerosis.
A vasodilator used in angina of effort or ischemic heart disease.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy. (Glaser, Neuro-Ophthalmology, 2nd ed, p135)
The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
Stents that are covered with materials that are embedded with chemicals that are gradually released into the surrounding milieu.
