BACKGROUND The predictors and clinical significance for stent fracture (SF) in drug-eluting stents (DES) remain unknown. We identified procedural factors leading to SF and its clinical consequences in DES. METHODS Percutaneous coronary interventions were performed on 3,920 patients with DES over 12 months. In-stent restenosis (ISR) of DES was observed in(More)
CASE A 43-year-old female presented with sudden onset of palpitations, chest pain, and shortness of breath associated with hypoxemia. A helical computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest revealed a large saddle pulmonary embolism. Intravenous tPA relieved the shortness of breath and improved the hypoxemia. Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter (TrapEase, Cordis(More)
We compared three methods: arteriovenous anastomosis, doxorubicin administration, and combination of anastomosis and doxorubicin, with the intention of designing a simple, stable model of chronic heart failure. Twelve dogs were divided into three groups of four. One group received carotid-jugular anastomosis (Ana series), another group received anastomosis(More)
CONTEXT The American College of Cardiology guidelines consider elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) without on-site surgical backup (OSB) a Class-III indication. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine the safety of elective PCI without OSB. DESIGN The study is a prospective analysis of a cohort of patients who underwent elective PCI(More)
The effects of electrical stimulation (ES) on arteriogenesis (the opening of preexisting collaterals) and angiogenesis (formation of new capillaries) were studied after acute bilateral hind limb ischemia was induced via bilateral femoral artery excision in a rabbit model. The study evaluated the rabbit hind limbs' normal response to acute ischemia and to(More)
