- B Good to Your Heart. Rabat, Maria // Vegetarian Times;Mar2002, Issue 295, p14
Focuses on coronary angioplasty, a procedure which involves the insertion of a balloon-like device into the clogged coronary arteries to clear the arterial passages. Risk of developing restenosis; Drugs that could prevent restenosis.
- Biocorrodible metals for coronary revascularization: Lessons from PROGRESS-AMS, BIOSOLVE-I, and BIOSOLVE-II. Bouchi, Yasir H.; Gogas, Bill D. // Global Cardiology Science & Practice;2015, Vol. 2015 Issue 4, p1
The impetus for developing drug-eluting bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS) has been driven by the need for elastic and transient platforms instead of stiff and permanent metallic implants in diseased coronary anatomies. This endeavor would prevent acute recoil or occlusion, allow sealing of...
- An aortic dissection treated with left main coronary artery stent implantation. Guz, Goksel; Altun, Ibrahim; Karaayvaz, Bilal; Akin, Fatih; Kocaaga, Mehmet; Atesal, Sebahattin // Advances in Interventional Cardiology;2014, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p314
Retrograde coronary aortic dissection is a rare but dangerous complication of coronary angioplasty. Mostly seen in right coronary artery procedures, especially in chronic total oclussion lesions, and rarely seen in left side procedures. This is a case report of an aortic dissection complicated...
- Coronary stent deployment to the iliac artery -- a complication with a successful treatment. Dziuba, Michał; Lenczewski, Piotr; Chiżyński, Krzysztof; Zielińska, Marzenna; Religa, Wojciech; Kaszyński, Marek; Stefańczyk, Ludomir; Kidawa, Michał // Advances in Interventional Cardiology;2012, Vol. 8 Issue 2, p146
We report a description of angioplasty (PCI) of the right coronary artery in a 68-year-old man with stable coronary artery disease and peripheral vascular atherosclerosis. The treatment was complicated by stent dislocation into the substantially narrowed iliac artery without accompanying signs...
- Variations in cardiac procedures related to physician recommendations and hospital characteristics. // Biomedical Market Newsletter;12/14/2011, Vol. 21, p1
The article reports that how Physician preferences and hospital characteristics influence the type of procedures performed on heart blockages which leads to significant variations in rates of bypass, stent or angioplasty procedures. Researchers analyzed the ratio of percutaneous coronary...
