OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to develop a computer model that accurately predicts myocardial fractional flow reserve (FFR) from angiographic images alone, in patients with coronary artery disease. BACKGROUND Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) guided by FFR is superior to standard assessment alone. FFR-guided PCI results in improved clinical(More)

The initial colonization, byStaphylococcus aureus, of the catheter damaged aortic valve and aorta of the rabbit, was examined by light and electron microscopy at 15 min, 3 h and 24 h post inoculation (PI). At 15 min PI, the majority of bacteria (80%) were located on the lateral surfaces of the thrombic vegetations while 20% were attached directly to the(More)

Die Wirksamkeit des 1-(2-(γ-Pyridyl)-ethyl)-2-methyl-5-nitroimidazols (Panidazol) aufEntamoeba histolytica wurde mit derjenigen des Emetins und des Metronidazols verglichen. Panidazol erweist sich in vitro als ein starkes amöbezides Mittel und ist gegen die induzierte Leberamöbiasis des Goldhamsters hochwirksam.
Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) peripheral stents are commonly used for the treatment of diseased femoropopliteal arteries (FPA). However, cyclic deformations of the vessel, induced by limb movements affect device performance and fatigue failure may occur. Stent strut fracture has been described in the literature, and is implicated as a potential causative factor in(More)
