Effect of recombinant ApoA-I Milano on coronary atherosclerosis in patients with acute coronary syndromes: a randomized controlled trial.
CONTEXT Although low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) increase risk for coronary disease, no data exist regarding potential benefits of administration of HDL-C or an HDLExpand

Coronary flow velocity immediately after primary coronary stenting as a predictor of ventricular wall motion recovery in acute myocardial infarction.
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the pattern of coronary blood flow velocity immediately after successful primary stenting and the recovery of leftExpand

Chronic stent recoil plays an important role in restenosis of the right coronary ostium
ObjectiveThe efficacy of coronary stenting of aorto-ostial atherosclerotic lesions is still unclear. We investigated the frequency and mechanism of stent restenosis at this particular lesion.Expand

Characteristics of atherosclerotic plaque distribution in coronary artery bifurcations: an intravascular ultrasound analysis
Objective Vessel bifurcations are prone to atherosclerotic plaque accumulation. Using volumetric intravascular ultrasound analysis, we investigated atheroma distribution at human coronaryExpand

Independent predictors of restenosis after percutaneous coronary revascularization in haemodialysis patients.
BACKGROUND Percutaneous balloon angioplasty has become a well-established and routine procedure for coronary revascularization of haemodialysis patients with coronary artery disease. However, theExpand

Umbilical Cord Pseudocyst in a Fetus with Trisomy 18
An umbilical cord pseudocyst was detected in the 28th week of gestation in a fetus complicated with growth restriction and polyhydramnios. The combination of cord pseudocysts, growth restriction, andExpand

Percutaneous bare Z‐stent implantation as an alternative to surgery for acute aortic dissection with visceral ischemia
We describe a case of Stanford type B acute aortic dissection causing visceral ischemia. An aortogram showed an hourglass‐like narrowing of the true lumen at the diaphragm with a 60 mm Hg pressureExpand

Distal coronary flow velocity immediately after direct angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction.
To evaluate coronary flow dynamics after direct angioplasty and to define the determinants of flow-velocity variables in the infarct artery, we measured coronary flow velocity in 36 infarct arteriesExpand
