BACKGROUND The TAXUS NIRx stent (Boston Scientific Corp) provides local delivery of paclitaxel via a slow-release polymer coating. The TAXUS I trial was the first in-human experience evaluating safety and feasibility of the TAXUS NIRx stent system compared with bare NIR stents (control) (Boston Scientific Corp) for treatment of coronary lesions.

BACKGROUND Percutaneous aortic valve replacement is a new emerging technology for interventional treatment of severe aortic valve stenosis in surgical high-risk patients. This study was intended to provide a summary of the development and current safety and efficacy status of the self-expanding CoreValve Revalving prosthesis. METHOD AND RESULTS Between(More)
AIM Transcatheter aortic valve implantation has become an alternative to surgery in higher risk patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis. The aim of the ADVANCE study was to evaluate outcomes following implantation of a self-expanding transcatheter aortic valve system in a fully monitored, multi-centre 'real-world' patient population in highly experienced(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to assess the impact of permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation on clinical outcomes among patients undergoing transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). BACKGROUND TAVI is associated with atrioventricular-conduction abnormalities requiring PPM implantation in up to 40% among patients treated with(More)
The evolution of the eFinance Market presents new and changing requirements on web server farm architecture. Web server farms built during the boom years of the web were designed to provide service to a very large number of users, where each request however placed relatively little load on the system. Further , the requests displayed a large amount of(More)
OBJECTIVES The feasibility of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in patients with a failing surgical aortic bioprosthesis has been reported from single centres. We present results from a multi-centre feasibility study in such patients followed for 1 year after TAVI. METHODS This study evaluated 18 patients undergoing implantation with the(More)
