Over the last decade, it has become clear that myocardial depression, like vascular dysfunction, is typical of human septic shock. Human septic myocardial depression is characterized by reversible biventricular dilatation, decreased ejection fraction, and decreased response to fluid resuscitation and catecholamine stimulation (in the presence of overall(More)
Carotid artery stenting is an alternative to carotid endarterectomy for patients at high risk for surgery for carotid artery stenosis. Although unfractionated heparin is routinely used, there are no published data evaluating the optimal activated clotting time during carotid stenting. In a retrospective analysis of 605 patients who underwent carotid(More)
Balloon entrapment during coronary angioplasty is a rare but potentially disastrous complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), described during both angioplasty alone, as well as with stents. This report describes the case of an entrapped stent-balloon within an extremely calcified proximal left anterior descending artery (LAD) lesion, and(More)
In multiple clinical trials, patients who received drug-eluting stents instead of plain stents during percutaneous coronary interventions had rates of restenosis that were lower by roughly one half to three fourths, depending on how restenosis was defined and on the population studied. These stents will likely be used more and more as their indications(More)
