The medical device being examined in this study is the Bard® LifeStent® 5F Vascular Stent System. It is intended for use in patients who suffer from peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD ...
The purpose of this study is to show if a new delivery system with a modified stent is safe in treating occluded iliac arteries in patients with peripheral vascular disease. The modified C...
The objective of the BIOFLEX-COF trial is to investigate differences in formation of intimal hyperplasia at one and two years after implantation of nitinol-stents with high vs. low COF in ...
The nitinol stent has proven superior primary patency than balloon angioplasty in superficial femoral artery lesions. Recent stent design improvements focus on decreasing stent fracture ra...
Purpose of this registry is to determine the efficacy and safety of the self-expanding, extra flexible FlexStent in patient with superficial femor/popliteal artery disease. The stent has ...
This work aims to investigate the effects of plaque eccentricity and composition on the stent performance and stress distributions of plaque and artery during stenting by the finite element method. Th...
We present the case of a 69 year old man who underwent transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME) after emergency treatment, in another institution, of an obstructing rectal cancer with a self-expand...
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...
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...
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a leading-edge therapy option for patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) and high surgical risk. However, this minimally invasive procedure is assoc...
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.
A chronic systemic infection by a gram-positive bacterium, Tropheryma whippelii, mainly affecting the SMALL INTESTINE but also the JOINTS; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. The disease is characterized by fat deposits in the INTESTINAL MUCOSA and LYMPH NODES, malabsorption, DIARRHEA with fatty stools, MALNUTRITION, and ARTHRITIS.
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.
Diseases characterized by pathological irregularities in the HEART CONDUCTION SYSTEM. They may be associated with other heart diseases and syndromes (e.g., BRUGADA SYNDROME; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASE, HEART BLOCKS), isolated or may result from injuries. You can have a conduction disorder without having an arrhythmia, but some arrhythmias arise from conduction disorders. OMIM: 601144.
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. &...
