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 ...
Endoscopy is the best means of finding early stage of upper gastrointestinal diseases, especially early cancer and benign ulcers. Currently, most people still undergo upper gastrointestina...
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...
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...
The aim of this study was to investigate the risk factors for postoperative complications (POCs) and optimal interval between a self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) placement and elective surgery, "b...
Self-expandable metal stents (SEMSs) are effective for improving dysphagia in patients with incurable esophageal cancer but are also associated with recurrent dysphagia and adverse events. In the p...
The placement of a self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) is widely used in patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstructions, but SEMSs are susceptible to occlusion by tumor ingrowth or overgr...
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.
