BACKGROUND Results from randomized controlled trials (RCT) concerning cardiac and renal effect of remote ischemic preconditioning(RIPC) in patients with stable coronary artery disease(CAD) are inconsistent. The aim of this study was to explore whether RIPC reduce cardiac and renal events after elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS AND(More)
The microstructure and tensile response of amorphous ZrCu and nanocrystalline Cu multilayered thin films, with sharp or graded interfaces, are examined and analyzed. The extracted tensile properties of the multilayered films can be compared with the predicted values based on the iso-strain Rule of Mixture model. The multilayered films with graded(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the procedural feasibility and early clinical outcomes of percutaneous balloon aortic valvuloplasty (PBAV) in patients with severe aortic stenosis, who were considered transiently unsuitable for surgical aortic valve replacement (sAVR) and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). METHODS Between March 2011 and January 2014,(More)
Objective: To investigate the safety and feasibility of sheathless transfemoral aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Methods: In this prospective study, we enrolled 23 patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) who were inoperable or at high-risk for surgical aortic valve replacement operation in Fuwai hospital From September 2012 to June 2015.
