- Transapical transcatheter aortic valve implantation without prior balloon aortic valvuloplasty: feasible and safeâ€ . Conradi, Lenard; Seiffert, Moritz; Schirmer, Johannes; Koschyk, Dietmar; Blankenberg, Stefan; Reichenspurner, Hermann; Diemert, Patrick; Treede, Hendrik // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;Jul2014, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p61
OBJECTIVES Currently, preimplant balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) is considered a prerequisite for successful subsequent transapical transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TA-TAVI) using balloon-expandable devices. However, cerebral embolization has been shown to originate at least in part...
- Clinically Silent Atrial Septal Defects with Evidence for Cerebral Embolization. Harvey, John R.; Teague, Steve M.; Anderson, Jerome L.; Voyles, Wyatt F.; Thadani, Udho // Annals of Internal Medicine;Nov86, Vol. 105 Issue 5, p695
Discusses the prevalence of interatrial shunting in young patients with recent stroke and normal cardiac examinations. Number of patients who underwent cardiac catheterization; Criteria used to prove the diagnosis of paradoxical embolization.
- Repetitive Paroxysms of Supraventricular Tachyarrhythmias Triggered During Pediatric Cardiac Interventions: Suppression After Short Infusion of Amiodarone. Mazić, U.; P.Berden; Podnar, T. // Pediatric Cardiology;Nov/Dec2004, Vol. 25 Issue 6, p684
Arrhythmias are the most common major complications encountered during pediatric cardiac catheterizations. This report describes the management of repetitive paroxysms of supraventricular tachyarrhythmias triggered by catheter manipulation during interventional procedures in two children. After...
- Posterior cerebral circulation infarct following cardiac catheterization and balloon angioplasty... Easley, R. Blaine; Lastra, Carlos // Clinical Pediatrics;Sep1997, Vol. 36 Issue 9, p535
Presents the case of a pediatric patient experiencing posterior cerebral infarction following cardiac catheterization and balloon angioplasty. Signs and symptoms; Risk factors; Diagnosis; Neurological changes in the patient; Clinical management.
- Case study: Closure of a patent foramen ovale without surgery following stroke. Duff, Diane // AXON/ L'AXONE;Winter2007, Vol. 28 Issue 2, p42
The article discusses the case of a 52-year-old man whose patent foreman ovale (PFO) was closed without surgery by using a septal occluder for stroke prevention. A PFO is described as an opening normally present in the septum between the atria during the prenatal period that fails to close at...
- MASSAGE THERAPY FOR PATIENTS UNDERGOING CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION. Okvat, Heather A.; Oz, Mehmet C.; Ting, Windsor; Namerow, Pearila B. // Alternative Therapies in Health & Medicine;May/Jun2002, Vol. 8 Issue 3, p68
Examines the effects of massage therapy for patients undergoing cardiac catheterization. Reduction of anxiety following catheterization procedure; Interference of hemodynamic stability; Relief of stress and pain.
- CHAPTER 1: HEMODYNAMIC RECORDING TECHNIQUES. // Invasive Cardiovascular Review Manual & Workbook;2008, preceding p1
Chapter 1 of a book about hemodynamics and cardiac catheterization is presented. It discusses several techniques for hemodynamic recording. The components of the recording system are the fluid filled catheter, the coronary manifold, stopcocks and electronic devices attached to the transducer....
- CHAPTER 7: VENTRICULAR FUNCTION. // Invasive Cardiovascular Review Manual & Workbook;2008, preceding p1
Chapter 7 of a book about hemodynamics and cardiac catheterization is presented. It provides information on disorders in the ventricular function of the heart. It attributes the enlargement of the ventricles to stress of valvular and myocardial diseases. Among the factors that alter the...
- CHAPTER 8: CARDIOMYOPATHY. // Invasive Cardiovascular Review Manual & Workbook;2008, preceding p1
Chapter 8 of a book about hemodynamics and cardiac catheterization is presented. It discusses the symptoms and diagnosis of cardiomyopathy. Heart failure of unknown origin and loss of contractility are some of the primary features of dilated cardiomyopathy. It mentions speculation that...
