BACKGROUND Drug-coated balloon angioplasty (DCBA) was shown to be superior to standard balloon angioplasty (POBA) in terms of restenosis prevention for de novo superficial femoral artery disease. For in-stent restenosis, the benefit of DCBA over POBA remains uncertain. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred nineteen patients with superficial femoral artery(More)
Fragestellung. In dieser randomisierten, plazebokontrollierten und doppelblinden Studie sollten die Effekte von Harpagophytum procumbens (Teufelskralle) auf sensible, motorische und vaskuläre Mechanismen von Muskelschmerzen untersucht werden. Neben der klinischen Wirksamkeit und Verträglichkeit wurden durch experimentell-algesimetrische Methoden mögliche(More)
OBJECTIVES Atherosclerosis of iliac arteries is widespread. As inflow vessels, they are of great clinical significance and increasingly being treated by endovascular means. Most commonly, stents are implanted. BACKGROUND So far, due to a lack of comparative data, no guideline recommendations on the preferable stent type, balloon-expandable stent (BE) or(More)
PURPOSE To investigate nitinol stent treatment of superficial femoral artery (SFA) lesions and the impact of different risk factors on the need for clinically driven target lesion revascularization (TLR) in a large, real-world population of claudicants. METHODS Patients presenting with symptomatic SFA stenosis >70% were consecutively enrolled in the(More)
PROBLEM This randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled study was intended to investigate the effects of Harpagophytum procumbens (Devil's Claw) on sensory, motor and vascular mechanisms of muscle pain. In addition to clinical efficacy and tolerability, possible action mechanisms were analysed by means of experimental algesimetric methods. METHODOLOGY(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate differences in radiation exposure of the operator depending on the type of catheterization lab procedure. BACKGROUND Invasive cardiologists and angiologists are exposed to long-term, low-dose occupational radiation. Increased workload and specialization require more detailed knowledge of the extent and cause of the(More)
AIMS Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) have been available on the European market since November 2011. The ASSURE registry aims to investigate the safety and efficacy of the Absorb everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold in a real-world setting. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients with de novo coronary artery disease were consecutively enrolled(More)
