A novel skin dose monitor was used to measure radiation incident on maximal X-ray exposed skin during 135 diagnostic and 65 interventional coronary procedures. For the diagnostic studies (n = 135), mean skin dose was 180 +/- 64 mGy; for PTCA (n = 35), it was 1021 +/- 674 mGy, single stents (n = 25) 1529 +/- 601 mGy, and multiple stents with rotational(More)
An 82-year-old woman undergoing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty experienced perforation of the terminal portion of the left anterior descending coronary artery caused by guidewire trauma. The coronary artery perforation was successfully closed using a vascular occlusion system consisting of individual thrombogenic coils delivered to the site.(More)
Fast pulsed magnets with ferrite yokes are used in CERN’s SPS accelerator for beam injection, extraction and excitation for tune measurements. The impedance of the ferrite structures can provoke significant beam induced heating, especially for beams with high peak currents as for LHC operation, even beyond the Curie temperature. The expected heating in the(More)
SPS beam impedance is still one of the worries for operation with nominal LHC beam over longer periods, once the final configuration will be installed in 2006. Several CERN SPS kickers suffer from significant beam induced ferrite heating. In specific cases, for instance beam scrubbing, the temperature of certain ferrite yokes went beyond the Curie point.(More)
BACKGROUND Before the "era" of optimal stent deployment, very few data concerning multiple stents in a single coronary artery showed restenosis rates up to 60%. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the 6-month outcome of patients receiving multiple Palmaz-Schatz stents (> or =2 stents) in a single coronary artery compared to those receiving single stents. METHODS(More)
The SPS LSS4 fast extraction system will serve both the anti-clockwise ring of the LHC and the CERN Gran Sasso Neutrino project (CNGS). CNGS requires 2 fast extractions of 10.5 microsecond long batches, 50 milliseconds apart. Each batch will consist of 2.4 × 10 protons at 400 GeV. These intensities are factor of 10 above the equipment damage limit in case(More)
