Eleven cases with 13, incidentally found coronary-pulmonary fistulous communications were discovered out of about 11,000 diagnostic coronary angiograms performed in different patients, over the period 1968 to 1989. These patients were followed-up for an average period of 4.4 years (range 2-11 years). The majority had a fistulous malformation originating(More)
Phlebography of the internal spermatic vein was performed on 87 patients. In only two cases were slight complications (fever and chill) recorded after the examinations. The patients felt only a little discomfort during the examination. They did not have to be hospitalized before or after the examinations. In a few cases we saw sufficient values distally, at(More)
PURPOSE Directional atherectomy is an endovascular interventional technique for excision and removal of obstructive arterial lesions. To evaluate whether atherectomy would provide better results than conventional balloon angioplasty (BA) in symptomatic femoropopliteal disease, a prospective randomized study comparing the early and late outcomes of these(More)
The results of balloon angioplasty (BA) and atherectomy (AT) with the Simpson atherocath, were compared in a randomised prospective study. Thirty-one patients were randomised to one of these methods for the treatment of symptomatic stenotic or occlusive lesions in the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries. One patient died after randomisation but(More)
PURPOSE This study involves a prospective randomized trial comparing clinical and angiographic results of balloon angioplasty (BA) and Simpson directional atherectomy (DA) in patients with short lesions in the femoropopliteal artery causing symptoms of intermittent claudication. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-five patients were treated with BA and 38 with(More)
PURPOSE To assess the merits of clinical examination, color-flow duplex ultrasound (US), and arteriography in the follow-up of patients who have undergone femoropopliteal artery recanalization for occlusive disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS Recanalization of the occluded femoropopliteal artery was attempted in 62 patients. Follow- up included clinical(More)
Purpose: To evaluate the role of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) before and after directional atherectomy (DA) in the treatment of femoropopliteal artery stenosis. Methods: In 12 patients with 16 stenoses IVUS was performed before and immediately after an angiographically successful DA. This was defined as a diameter reduction (DR) ≤ 50%, which was(More)
