BACKGROUND: Although chronic total occlusions are encountered frequently in patients with coronary artery disease, an effective strategy to deal with them has yet to be devised. Various new guidewires have been designed in an attempt to negotiate chronic occlusions successfully. The authors have...
BACKGROUND: Although several shortterm animal models of stunning and hibernation have been studied extensively, it has been difficult to produce a consistent animal model of chronic hibernation. The aim of the present study was to develop a nonsurgical porcine stent model of coronary stenosis in...
it is unknown which is the most effective and safest delivery strategy for therapeutic myocardial angiogenesis. The enhancing effect of direct intramyocardial injection of angiogenic factors using either open-chest or catheter-based approaches on collateral function has been reported to occur in...
Fibrinolytic therapy is a proven approach for achieving reperfusion of occluded coronary arteries during myocardial infarction, resulting in reduced mortality and preservation of ventricular function. The amount of myocardial muscle loss is proportional to the duration of ischemia. Bleeding...
BACKGROUND: Coronary stents have been used with increasing frequency and in increasingly complex coronary lesions for the treatment of symptomatic coronary artery disease. A new stainless steel coronary stent, the R Stent, has been designed to provide maximum flexibility for tracking and high...
There are compelling reasons for cardiologists to undertake a more global approach to patients with peripheral vascular diseases: atherosclerosis is a 'systemic' disease frequently causing both coronary and peripheral vascular problems in the same patient; coronary artery disease is the most...
BACKGROUND: The DUET Study is a multicenter prospective efficacy and safety evaluation of the ACS MULTI-LINK DUET coronary stainless steel balloon-expandable stent. AIMS: The primary objective was to determine the one-month incidence of MACE (major adverse cardiac events). The secondary...
The application of g -radiation in coronary arteries is a promising new technique for the treatment of in-stent restenosis. This is the first case in which the 5 F. delivery catheter of the Beta-Cath system was advanced through the struts of a stent, previously deployed in an adjacent branch,...
