Prospective randomized trial of laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy versus duodenal stenting for malignant gastric outflow obstruction
BackgroundWe prospectively compared laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy with duodenal stenting as a means of palliating malignant gastric outflow obstruction.MethodsA total of 27 patients with malignantExpand

Antiplatelet and antithrombotic treatment after transcatheter aortic valve implantation - comparison of regimes.
OBJECTIVES We compared procedural and follow-up complications of TAVI patients based on the type of antithrombotic treatment used (single-antiplatelet [SAPT] vs dual-antiplatelet [DAPT] vs warfarin).Expand

Prognostic impact of pre-existing right ventricular dysfunction on the outcome of transcatheter aortic valve implantation.
AIMS Right ventricular dysfunction is a well recognized adverse prognostic factor in patients undergoing surgical aortic valve replacement. The prognostic significance of right ventricularExpand

Use of troponin to diagnose periprocedural myocardial infarction: effect on composite endpoints in the British Bifurcation Coronary Study (BBC ONE)
Background Periprocedural myocardial infarction (PMI; ESC/ACC type 4a) is diagnosed on the basis of elevation of cardiac enzymes more than three times the 99th centile upper reference limit. RecentExpand

Long-term follow-up of elective chronic total coronary occlusion angioplasty: analysis from the U.K. Central Cardiac Audit Database.
BACKGROUND Chronic total occlusion (CTO) is common, being reported in 18% to 30% of patients undergoing coronary angiography. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is usually performed to relieveExpand

Poor mobility predicts adverse outcome better than other frailty indices in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation
Surgical risk scoring systems are poor at predicting outcome in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Frailty indices might more accurately predict outcome. Aims: ToExpand

Rapid pacing using the 0.035‐in. Retrograde left ventricular support wire in 208 cases of transcatheter aortic valve implantation and balloon aortic valvuloplasty
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) are now well established percutaneous procedures. These procedures almost always require bursts of rapidExpand

Clinical outcomes with 6 months dual antiplatelet therapy after implantation of biolimus-A9 drug eluting coronary stents.
INTRODUCTION Duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) following drug eluting stent (DES) implantation remains poorly defined. Endothelialisation of biodegradable polymer biolimus-eluting stentsExpand

Comparison of the Effects of Incomplete Revascularization on 12-Month Mortality in Patients <80 Compared With ≥80 Years Who Underwent Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.
Although randomized trial data suggest that complete revascularization improves outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the impact of differing revascularization strategies inExpand
