- Percutaneous Transcatheter Closure of a Paravalvular Leak in a 20-Month Old Child. Stein, Elizabeth; Sable, Craig; Donofrio, Mary; Slack, Michael // Pediatric Cardiology;Jan2011, Vol. 32 Issue 1, p113
The article presents a case study of a 20-month old boy who was referred to the cardiac catheterization laboratory due to closure of a large prosthetic mitral valve paravulvar leak. It says that periprocedural transesophageal echocardiography and angiography were conducted wherein results showed...
- Cath Lab Reports: Look Beyond The Numbers. Wysocki, Lucy // RN;Oct2006, Vol. 69 Issue 10, p45
The article answers a question regarding the significance of the catheter laboratory results when a near-complete blockage in one artery poses less of a threat to a patient than a lesser blockage in another. The threat is defined not just by the size of the blockage, but by which artery is...
- Determinants of Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction by Ultrafast Computed Tomography. McMillan, Robert M.; Rees, Michael R. // Angiology;Mar1988 Part 1, Vol. 39 Issue 3, p203
Twenty-seven patients had left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) measured by catheterization, single-plane angiography, and ultrafast computed tomography (cine CT). Twelve patients (mean age sixty-two years) had LVEF measured by use of the cine CT long-axis view LAV), and 15 patients (mean...
- Radial Artery Catheterization for Percutaneous Vascular or Coronary Interventions: An Innocent Procedure? Paraskevas, Kosmas I.; Anastasakis, Eleftherios; Andrikopoulou, Maria; Mikhailidis, Dimitri P. // Angiology;Jan2010, Vol. 61 Issue 1, p5
The author reflects on the significance of radial artery catheterization for coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). He states that in catheterization an acute inflammatory reaction takes place, which induces local edema and intima-media thickening. He adds that the...

- ANEURYSMS OF THE PULMONARY ARTERIES. Gould, Lawrence; Reddy, C.V. Ramana; Chang Sing Yang // Angiology;Feb1977, Vol. 28 Issue 2, p119
A case of bilateral pulmonary artery aneurysms is presented. Serial cardiac catheterizations over an 8-year period showed remarkably little hemodynamic change. Thus there may be a long period of clinical and hemodynamic stability in this condition.
- "Wire-Target" Technique for Precise Vascular Access. Hamzeh, Rabih K.; Danon, Saar; Shah, Sanjay; Levi, Daniel S.; Moore, John W. // Texas Heart Institute Journal;2009, Vol. 36 Issue 4, p321
Herein, we describe a technique that facilitates percutaneous vascular access when the traditional method of achieving access is unsuccessful. For multiple reasons, gaining access to small vessels in pediatric patients is sometimes difficult. In instances of atrial, ventricular, or great...
