BACKGROUND Stenting has been demonstrated to be superior to balloon angioplasty in de novo focal lesions located in large native vessels. However, in small vessels, the benefit of stenting remains questionable. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 381 symptomatic patients with de novo focal lesion located on a small coronary segment vessel (<3 mm) were randomly(More)
— This paper deals with the 3D reconstruction of sparse data in X-ray rotational imaging. Due to the cardiac motion, the number of available projections for this reconstruction is equal to four, which leads to a strongly under-sampled reconstruction problem. We address thus this illness problem through a regularized iterative method. The whole algorithm is(More)
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare cause of acute coronary syndrome occurring predominantly in young women without any cardiovascular risk factors, especially during the peripartum and early postpartum period. Here, we report a case of a 28-year-old pregnant woman who was found to have an isolated distal SCAD of the left anterior(More)
BACKGROUND Patient selection for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) remains a major concern. Indeed, despite promising results, it is still unclear which patients are most and least likely to benefit from this procedure. AIMS To identify predictors of 6-month poor clinical outcomes after TAVI. METHODS Patients who were discharged from our(More)
As part of French health reform, French physicians were computerised by the end of 1998. A specific Intranet network will be used to communicate medical data between the health professionals. The objectives of the CARDIOMEDIA project were to develop and evaluate the feasibility of a coronary multimedia data record stored on an optical card and communicable(More)
