- Multidetector Computed Tomography Diagnosis of Subclavian Artery Dissection Following Endovascular Treatment. Das, K.M.; El-Manyer, Ayman; Suwaidi, J.A. // Internet Journal of Cardiology;2007, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p2
We report a case of a 63-year-old man where multi-detector cardiac computed tomography (MDCT) revealed dissection of left subclavian artery following percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) to left anterior descending artery.
- Balloon Angioplasty in Acute and Chronic Coronary Artery Disease. Holmes Jr., David R.; Vlietstra, Ronald E. // JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association;4/14/89, Vol. 261 Issue 14, p2109
Discusses the use of balloon angioplasty in the treatment of acute and chronic coronary artery disease. Dependence of outcome of specific patient and angiographic characteristics; Success rates in ideal lesions; Unresolved issues.
- Coronary artery rupture treated with microcoil occlusion. Banerjee, S.; Egdell, R.; Watkinson, A.; Greenbaum, R. // Heart;Aug2001, Vol. 86 Issue 2, p187
This article discusses a case of coronary artery rupture treated with microcoil occlusion. Coronary artery rupture is a rare complication of balloon angioplasty. Techniques used in its management include emergency surgery, covered stern deployment, and microcoil vessel occlusion. The latter has...
- Pharmacological vasodilatation in the assessment of pressure-derived collateral flow index. Perera, D.; Patel, S.; Blows, I.; Tomsett, E.; Marber, M.; Redwood, S. // Heart;Aug2006, Vol. 92 Issue 8, p1149
The study examines the effect of pharmacological hyperemia, which was induced by a femoral venous infusion of adenosine, on pressure-derived collateral flow index (CFI) in patients during elective percutaneous coronary intervention. A significant inverse correlation was observed between baseline...
- Transradial rescue angioplasty for failed thrombolysis in acute myocardial infarction: reperfusion with reduced vascular risk. T. S. N. Lo; I. R. Hall; R. Jaumdally; P. M. Davison; K. Dickinson; D. J. Hildick-Smith; J. Nolan // Heart;Aug2006, Vol. 92 Issue 8, p153
The study assesses the value of transradial approach in patients undergoing rescue percutaneous coronary intervention for failed thrombolysis because of acute myocardial infarction. Transradial access was found to be safe and effective in preventing vascular access complications associated with...
- B.Braun pioneers major advance in interventional cardiology. // Operating Theatre Journal;Sep2012, Issue 264, p10
The article discusses the benefits of Sequent Please drug coated angioplasty balloon, by B.Braun Medical, for the treatment of in-stent restenosis (ISR) after implantation of a drug-eluting stent. The drug is already recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)...
- Impacts of Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa Inhibition on QT Dispersion After Successful Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. Okmen, Ertan; Sanli, Arda; Uyarel, Huseyin; Dayi, Sennur; Tartan, Zeynep; Cam, Nese // Angiology;May/Jun2006, Vol. 57 Issue 3, p273
Coronary ischemia augments inhomogeneity in ventricular repolarization, Decrease in the QT dispersion (QTd) following restoration of coronary blood flow to the ischemic myocardium by successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is an expected outcome. The purpose of the study was to seek...
- Directional atherectomy facilitates the interventional procedure and leads to a low rate of recurrent stenosis in left anterior descending and left circumflex artery ostium stenoses: subgroup analysis of the FLEXI-CUT study. Dahm, J. B.; Ruppert, J.; Hartmann, S.; Vogelgesang, D.; Hummel, A.; Felix, S. B. // Heart;Sep2006, Vol. 92 Issue 9, p1285
Objectives: To examine by retrospective analysis of data from the FLEXI-CUT monocentre registry whether atherectomy can effectively simplify complex stent implantation in ostial bifurcation lesions by reducing the procedure to stenting of the left anterior descending (LAD) or left circumflex...
- New guidelines for angioplasty. Sgammato, Joseph // Patient Care;7/15/1994, Vol. 28 Issue 12, p37
Presents guidelines for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. Indications for PTCA in patients with acute myocardial infarction; Restrictions and complications.
