BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Abciximab has been shown to significantly reduce thromboembolic complications of coronary artery stenting. A prospective, randomized study was performed to test whether abciximab has comparable beneficial effects in carotid artery stenting. METHODS Seventy-four consecutive patients undergoing elective stenting of the carotid artery(More)
Patients with symptomatic > or = 60% (n = 134), asymptomatic > or = 80% (n = 143), and asymptomatic progressive > or = 60% (n = 25) internal carotid artery stenosis underwent stenting and were followed clinically and by Doppler-assisted duplex imaging for 27.1 +/- 15.6 months. Stroke and death from stroke occurred within 30 days after stenting in 4.7% of(More)
A 65-year-old man was scheduled for pacemaker implantation for symptomatic sick-sinus-syndrome (SSS). He suffered from multiple drug-allergies and allergies to several metals like quicksilver and titanium. Gold-coated pacemaker generators and polyurethane leads are effective in avoiding allergic reactions to pacing system components. Therefore, we decided(More)
BACKGROUND Growing evidence suggests that poor coronary blood flow after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is associated with unfavorable clinical out-come. We retrospectively evaluated data from our single center "real world patients" database of patients undergoing primary PCI to determine differences in clinical and angiographic patterns(More)
