- Intracoronary brachytherapy for in-stent restenosis: will it remain a viable therapy? Seong-Wook Park; Myeong-Ki Hong; Seung Jun Oh; Dae Hyuk Moon // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;2004, Vol. 31 Issue 9, p1219
Stent placement has replaced balloon angioplasty as the most commonly performed percutaneous coronary intervention procedure because of its acute and long-term advantages over balloon angioplasty. However, widespreaduse of stents has also led to a new problem, the in-stentrestenosis (ISR). ISR...

Frequent delayed effect of radiation therapy in the region of neck is stenosis of carotid arteries. We report the case of 32 years old man with history of radiation therapy due to Hodgkin lymphoma, and severe stenosis of the right common carotid artery. Stenosis was successfully treated by...
- New route to angioplasty. // Better Homes & Gardens;Jun95, Vol. 73 Issue 6, p62
Reports on Dallas, Tex.-based Baylor University Medical Center's use of the wrist as a new route during balloon coronary angioplasty. Technique used by doctors; Advantages of using the wrist as route compared with using the groin.
- ST-T Alternans and Myocardial Ischemia. Kwan, Tak; Feit, Alan; Alam, Mahmood; Afflu, Ernest; Clark, Luther T. // Angiology;Mar1999, Vol. 50 Issue 3, p217
Previous studies using intracoronary electrocardiography have demonstrated that ST-T alternans can develop during standard balloon coronary angioplasty. Total occlusion with a large amount of myocardium in jeopardy is the postulated prerequisite. In this study, the authors used perfusion...
- Is transfer for primary angioplasty better than on-site fibrinolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction? Choi, Stephen // CMAJ: Canadian Medical Association Journal;9/30/2003, Vol. 169 Issue 7, p695
Provides information on a study that examined whether transfer to a centre with available percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty better than on-site fibrinolysis in the treatment of patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Design of the study; Results of the...
- Electrical and Mechanical Alternans During Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty in a Patient with Acute Myocardial Infarction. Konno, Tetsuo; Araki, Tsutomu; Soma, Ryuichirou; Takimoto, Hiroaki; Tofuku, Yohei; Shimizu, Masami // Angiology;Sep/Oct2004, Vol. 55 Issue 5, p569
The authors report a rare type of cardiac alternans during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in a patient with acute myocardial infarction. Not only ST segment but also QRS alternans were observed on electrocardiogram and were accompanied by mechanical alternans. The...
- Successful Direct PTCA on LAD after First Episode of Acute Myocardial Infarction: Does It Improve Cardiac Function? Asonuma, Hirohiko; Tanji, Yasuhiro; Nakatoh, Hiroshi; Nakajima, Takanobu; Akita, Hirotoshi; Sasaki, Akira; Shoji, Kohjiro // Angiology;Sep1990 Part 1, Vol. 41 Issue 9, p724
Patients who received direct percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) after acute mycardial infarction and maintained potency but with unimproved cardiac function were studied. In 15 patients, the first episode of acute myocardial infarction was caused by a left anterior descending...
- Balloon angioplasty is best. // Medical Device Technology;May2002, Vol. 13 Issue 4, p7
Compares the effectiveness of applying balloon angioplasty with thrombolytic medication on patients suffering from coronary thrombosis in Denmark.
