BACKGROUND The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate the tolerance of rapid right ventricular pacing (RRVP) compared with that of the traditional methods of hypotension used during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). METHODS From January 2002 to December 2012, we retrospectively included all the patients treated with TEVAR by(More)
A stereotaxic frame, compatible with digital subtraction angiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging, is described along with a set of software programs that run in an independent imaging computer system, as well as in the computers associated with each modality. Plexiglas plates fastened to the sides of the frame contain fiducial(More)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) offers a non-invasive method to visualize the intracerebral structures. Coupled to a compatible stereotactic frame and software, MRI can be used to determine the coordinates of intracranial targets. Coordinates of the anterior commissure, posterior commissure, targets and intercommissural distance were obtained from positive(More)
Machine perfusion (MP) of kidney graft provides benefits against preservation injury, however decreased graft quality requires optimization of the method. We examined the chronic benefits of MP on kidney grafts and the potential improvements provided by IGL-1 solution. We used an established autotransplantation pig kidney model to study the effects of MP(More)
Radiation-induced stenosis of the carotid artery is considered a challenging entity for direct revascularization. We performed a carotid artery stenting for a radiation-induced stenosis using a transapical approach on an asymptomatic 63-year-old male patient. Transapical approach, which is often used for cardiac surgery, was not yet described for the(More)
Consecutively to drastic changes which occurred in cerebral imagery techniques, we have developed a stereotactic apparatus and system based on the integration of several new techniques allowing visualisation of the brain: tomodensitometry (TDM), digital subtraction angiography (DSA), magnetic resonance (MR) and positron emission tomography (PET).
