64-Detector CT angiography in renal artery stent evaluation: prospective comparison with selective catheter angiography.
PURPOSE To prospectively assess the diagnostic accuracy of 64-detector computed tomographic (CT) renal artery (RA) angiography for the evaluation of RA in-stent restenosis (ISR) by using selectiveExpand

Implantation depth measured by 64-slice computed tomography is associated with permanent pacemaker requirement following transcatheter aortic valve implantation with the Core Valve(®) system.
BACKGROUND Patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) are at increased risk for post-interventional conduction disturbances leading to pacemaker (PM) implantation. We analyzedExpand

Cardiac Computed Tomography-Derived Left Atrial Volume Index as a Predictor of Long-Term Success of Cryo-Ablation in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation.
Patients with symptomatic, drug-refractory atrial fibrillation (AF) are frequently treated with catheter ablation. Cryo-ablation has been established as an alternative to radiofrequency ablation butExpand
