- R. McKay
- Journal of the American College of Cardiology
- 1 February 1991
Between December 1, 1986 and October 30, 1987, balloon aortic valvuloplasty was performed in 492 patients with aortic stenosis (mean age 79 +/- 8.4 years) enrolled in the Mansfield Scientific Aortic… Expand
Neurological Events Following Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement and Their Predictors: A Report From the CoreValve Trials
- N. Kleiman, B. Maini, +9 authors J. Popma

This study aimed to develop finite element (FE) models of human TVs from multi-slice computed tomography images to investigate chordal forces and leaflet stresses and strains. Expand
Comparison of outcomes and safety of "facilitated" versus primary percutaneous coronary intervention in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
Recent studies have documented that use of "facilitated" percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) may be harmful. In-hospital… Expand
Impact of Famotidine Use on Clinical Outcomes of Hospitalized Patients With COVID-19
INTRODUCTION: To compare outcomes in patients hospitalized with coronavirus (COVID-19) receiving famotidine therapy with those not receiving famotidine. METHODS: Retrospective, propensity-matched… Expand
CT image-based engineering analysis of transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
Despite the increased global experience with transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), there remain 3 major adverse events. Aortic rupture ([Fig. 1]), coronary artery obstruction ([Fig.… Expand
Finite Element Analysis of Patient-Specific Mitral Valve with Mitral Regurgitation
- T. Pham, Fanwei Kong, +5 authors Wei Sun
- Materials Science, Medicine
- Cardiovascular engineering and technology

Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is a significant complication of left ventricular dysfunction and strongly associated with a poor prognosis. In this study, we developed a patient-specific… Expand
Finite element analysis of annuloplasty and papillary muscle relocation on a patient-specific mitral regurgitation model
Objectives Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is a significant complication of left ventricle (LV) dysfunction associated with poor prognosis and commonly treated by undersized ring annuloplasty.… Expand
Treatment of intracoronary thrombus with local urokinase infusion using a new, site-specific drug delivery system: the Dispatch catheter.
- R. McKay, D. Fram, +6 authors D. Waters
- Catheterization and cardiovascular diagnosis
- 1 October 1994
BACKGROUND The presence of intracoronary thrombus significantly increases the risk of conventional balloon angioplasty because of a high incidence of abrupt closure, distal embolization, and… Expand
