The main objective of this study is to assess in-stent late lumen loss in diabetic patients with de novo native coronary lesions using the sirolimus-eluting Bx VELOCITYä stent as compared...
The investigators evaluated whether primary implantation of a self-expanding nitinol stent yielded anatomical and clinical benefits superior to those afforded by percutaneous transluminal ...
The aim of this animal study is determining the technical feasibility of the novel flower-type covered self-expandable metal stent (F-CSEMS) and investigating whether the novel flower-type...
To determine the response to treatment with a novel esophageal stent loaded with 125I seeds for intraluminal brachytherapy versus a conventional covered stent in patients with advanced eso...
The main objective of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the sirolimus-coated Bx VELOCITYTM stent in reducing target vessel failure in de novo native coronary artery l...
Malignant esophagorespiratory fistula (MERF) has been usually managed by the placement of self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) with conflicting results. This study aimed to identify risk factors associa...
This study investigated the feasibility of side-by-side (SBS) partially covered self-expandable metal stent (PCSEMS) placement for unresectable malignant hilar biliary obstruction (MHBO).
A 74-year-old woman who underwent pylorus-preserving pacreatoduodenectomy + Child and Billroth-II reconstruction for pancreatic carcinoma, developed CJAS and gallstone cholangitis 3 months postoperati...
Although colonic perforation is a dreadful adverse event associated with stent placement, data on this topic are sparse. We aimed to investigate the clinical outcomes of colonic perforation and factor...
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.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the gastrointestinal tract.
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.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
Diseases in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT from ESOPHAGUS to RECTUM.
