The main purpose of this study is to determine whether implantation of a paclitaxel-eluting stent (Taxus™) in saphenous vein graft lesions will reduce the incidence of in-stent restenosi...
Prospective multicenter controlled randomized trial to compare the safety and efficacy of drug eluting vs. bare metal stents in percutaneous coronary interventions of saphenous vein grafts...
The investigators hypothesize that patients with Acute ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction may benefit from primary angioplasty with use of a drug eluting balloon/bare metal stent combinati...
Context: Sirolimus-eluting-stents have improved the benefits of percutaneous interventions in native coronary arteries reducing the occurrence of restenosis and repeated revascularization,...
Study objective is the evaluation of safety and efficacy at 12 months of the combination treatment of bare metal Stent plus Paclitaxel Eluting Balloon vs drug eluting stent in patients wit...
The optimal treatment of in-stent restenosis (ISR) remains unknown. This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of a paclitaxel coated balloon compared to a 2nd generation sirolimus eluting stent in ...
Drug-eluting stent (DES) strut fracture (SF) is associated with higher incidence of In-stent restenosis (ISR)-return of blockage in a diseased artery post stenting-than seen with bare metal stents (BM...
Stent technology has rapidly evolved since the first stainless steel bare metal stents with substantial developments in scaffolding, polymer, drug choice, drug delivery, and elution mechanisms. Most r...
The MASTER study was designed to compare performance of a new biode-gradable polymer sirolimus-eluting stent (BP-SES) with a bare-metal stent (BMS) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial inf...
Coronary drug-eluting stent development has introduced new metal alloys, changes in stent architecture and bioresorbable polymers. Whether these advancements improve long-term clinical safety and effi...
A type of surgical portasystemic shunt to reduce portal hypertension with associated complications of esophageal varices and ascites. It is performed percutaneously through the jugular vein and involves the creation of an intrahepatic shunt between the hepatic vein and portal vein. The channel is maintained by a metallic stent. The procedure can be performed in patients who have failed sclerotherapy and is an additional option to the surgical techniques of portocaval, mesocaval, and splenorenal shunts. It takes one to three hours to perform. (JAMA 1995;273(23):1824-30)
The vein which drains the foot and leg.
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.
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.

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. &...
