Comparison of Safety and Efficacy of Two Different Drug Eluting Stents Implanted Into Saphenous Vein Grafts

2014-07-23 21:20:06 | BioPortfolio


Drug eluting stents significantly reduced the rate of in-stent restenosis in coronary arteries. There are several kinds of DES i.e. eluting the drug either from stable or biodegradable polymer. The type of the polymer may impact the clinical outcome. The aim of our study was to compare safety and efficacy of implantation of two different types of stents eluting paclitaxel from stable vs biodegradable polymer (TAXUS stent vs LUC-CHOPIN stent) into coronary artery by-pass graft.

Clinical Efficacy of Stent in Patients with Cervical Esophageal and/or Hypopharyngeal Stenosis after Total Laryngectomy.

We retrospectively analyzed 17 patients with esophageal stent who underwent cervical esophageal and/or hypopharyngeal stenosis after total laryngectomy (TL) from January 2014 to January 2018. The succ...

Lactic acid-mediated endothelial to Mesenchymal transition through TGF-β1 contributes to in-stent stenosis in poly-L-lactic acid stent.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 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.
