BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Monopolar radiofrequency (RF) treatment is used by physicians to heat skin and promote tissue tightening and contouring. Cosmetic fillers are used to soften deep facial lines and wrinkles. Patients who have had dermal fillers implanted may also benefit from or are candidates for monopolar RF skin tightening. This study examined the(More)
BACKGROUND The alexandrite laser selectively targets melanin and hemoglobin. We used the alexandrite laser with variable pulse widths to treat facial telangiectasia. METHODS Nineteen patients were enrolled in this study, which consisted of two parts: a series of test spots over a range of pulse durations (3-80 ms) and treatment over a larger area based on(More)
AIMS A recent study demonstrated that intracoronary near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) findings in non-target vessels are associated with major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE). It is unknown whether NIRS findings at non-stented sites in target vessels are similarly associated with future MACCE. This study evaluated the association(More)
AIMS The present study explores the feasibility of telestenting, wherein a physician operator performs stenting on a patient in a separate physical location using a combination of robotics and telecommunications. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients undergoing robotic stenting were eligible for inclusion. All manipulations of guidewires, balloons, and stents were(More)
BACKGROUND Neoatherosclerosis is an emerging phenomenon in which lipid-rich plaques (LRPs) develop within pre-existing stents. This study was undertaken to describe near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and intravascular ultrasound findings in pre-existing stents and to compare NIRS findings in pre-existing stents, in which an increased lipid signal has been(More)
