Multicenter intravascular ultrasound validation study among heart transplant recipients: outcomes after five years.
OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the validity of first-year intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) data as a surrogate marker for long-term outcome after heart transplantation. BACKGROUND Cardiac allograftExpand

Intracoronary stenting without anticoagulation accomplished with intravascular ultrasound guidance.
BACKGROUND The placement of stents in coronary arteries has been shown to reduce restenosis in comparison to balloon angioplasty. However, clinical use of intracoronary stents is impeded by the riskExpand

Hydrophilic polymer emboli: an under-recognized iatrogenic cause of ischemia and infarct
With the increased use of percutaneous intravascular diagnostic and therapeutic devices, there is potential for embolization of materials introduced into the vasculature. We report nine cases ofExpand

Assessment of intermediate severity coronary lesions in the catheterization laboratory.
The management of intermediate coronary lesions, defined by a diameter stenosis of 40% to 70%, continues to be a therapeutic dilemma for cardiologists. The 2-dimensional representation of theExpand
