In peripheral arterial obstructive disease, more than 50% of all lesions are localized in the femoropopliteal segment and surgical revascularization is the treatment of choice. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is recommended for short lesions, with subsequent stent implantation if the result is sub-optimal or dissections occur after PTA or for(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the intravenous bolus dose of tirofiban with intracoronary bolus dose in primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with regard to in hospital and six months clinical outcomes and peak cardiac enzyme levels. METHODS We retrospectively examined 84 ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients(More)
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using retrograde approach through venous grafts or collateral vessels is a promising option for chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesions in which antegrade crossing is not possible. We describe a successful retrograde balloon dilatation of right coronary artery lesions through a venous graft in a patient with a previous(More)
Insulin is known to stimulate proliferation and migration of vascular smooth muscle cells. As the predominant mechanism of restenosis after stent implantation is neointimal tissue proliferation, one can expect a relationship between hyperinsulinemia and restenosis in these patients. The aim of this study was to determine whether hyperinsulinemia during oral(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare treatment of saphenous vein graft (SVG) lesions with paclitaxel-eluting (PES) and sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) in daily practice with regard to short- and long-term clinical outcomes. METHODS Between August 2002 and September 2006, a total of 71 patients with SVG lesions who were implanted PES or SES(More)
Several clinical parameters and noninvasive tests have been developed to identify patients under the risk for sudden cardiac death (SCD). The microvolt T-wave alternans (MTWA) test is a noninvasive diagnostic method based on the measurement of subtle (microvolt) beat-to-beat alternation of the T-wave on the surface electrocardiogram and used for risk(More)
