The investigators evaluated whether primary implantation of a self-expanding nitinol stent yielded anatomical and clinical benefits superior to those afforded by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with optional secondary stenting.

The GoldenFlow (Lifetech Scientific, Shenzhen, China) is a novel woven-nitinol stent designed to have superior radial strength, flexibility and durability compared to standard nitinol sten...
The objective of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the short-term (up to 12 months) outcome of treatment by means of the self-expanding iVolution nitinol stent in symptomatic (Rut...
Patients with peripheral artery disease will be treated with either drug coated balloon catheter, drug coated stent or uncoated stent.
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 purpose of this study (superiority trial) is to compare the Supera® Peripheral Stent System with a standard nitinol self-expanding stent for treatment of femoro-popliteal arterial occ...
We present a case of an 85-year-old woman with bilateral limb-threatening ischemia caused by acute-on-chronic occlusion of the infrarenal aorta. The patient once underwent endovascular recanalization ...
The study sought to compare patency rates and clinical outcomes of nitinol stents and primary vein bypass in long femoropopliteal lesions.
The mechanical properties of nitinol iliac vein stent (NIVS) have been studied by many scholars at home and abroad, but the study on the mechanical properties of iliac vein stent under different relea...
Self-expandable stents have broadened the spectrum of endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. However, procedures involving double stenting in Y/X configurations carry a relatively high risk...
Vascular response to paclitaxel-eluting nitinol self-expanding stent in superficial femoral artery lesions: post-implantation angioscopic findings from the SHIMEJI trial (Suppression of vascular wall Healing after IMplantation of drug Eluting peripheral stent in Japanese patients with the Infra inguinal lesion: serial angioscopic observation).
The aim of this study was to elucidate the vascular responses to paclitaxel-eluting stent (Zilver PTX stent) in superficial femoral artery lesion at different elapsed times using angioscopy. Patients ...
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.
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.
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.
Obstruction of the flow in the SPLANCHNIC CIRCULATION by ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; THROMBOSIS; STENOSIS; TRAUMA; and compression or intrinsic pressure from adjacent tumors. Rare causes are drugs, intestinal parasites, and vascular immunoinflammatory diseases such as PERIARTERITIS NODOSA and THROMBOANGIITIS OBLITERANS.

Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS in the cardiac or peripheral circulation. They include diseases of ARTERIES; VEINS; and rest of the vasculature system in the body.
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. &...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
