BACKGROUND Identification of men harbouring insignificant prostate cancer (PC) is important in selecting patients for active surveillance. Tools have been developed in PSA-screened populations to identify such men based on clinical and biopsy parameters. METHODS Prospectively collected case series of 848 patients was treated with radical prostatectomy(More)
Prostate cancer remains a significant health problem worldwide and is the second highest cause of cancer-related death in men. While there is uncertainty over which men will benefit from radical treatment, considerable efforts are being made to reduce treatment related side-effects and in optimising outcomes. This article reviews the development and(More)
AIMS To establish success and complication rates of excimer laser coronary atherectomy (ELCA) in a contemporary series of patients with balloon failure during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of both chronic total occlusions (CTO) and lesions with distal TIMI 3 flow. METHODS AND RESULTS We identified 58 cases of balloon failure treated with(More)
BACKGROUND The controversies concerning possible overtreatment of prostate cancer, highlighted by debate over PSA screening, have highlighted active surveillance (AS) as an alternative management option for appropriate men. Regional differences in the underlying prevalence of PSA testing may alter the pre-test probability for high-risk disease, which can(More)
OBJECTIVES Drug-eluting stent (DES) implantations with low final cross-sectional area (CSA) are associated with adverse clinical outcomes. However, there is no guidance to facilitate optimal stent deployment (SD). The stent optimization (STOP) study was performed to assess DES routine postdilatation (PD) following implantation with intravascular ultrasound(More)
Very late stent recoil is a rare albeit recognized phenomenon leading to subsequent in-stent restenosis. Angiography alone may not be adequate in making the diagnosis, and intravascular imaging with optical coherence tomography (OCT) is far superior in confirming the diagnosis and guiding subsequent management. We describe a case with interesting coronary(More)
