PURPOSE To assess primary success and safety of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and/or stenting of innominate artery lesions and to compare its 30-day stroke/mortality level with the literature data. METHODS A total of 72 patients (77 stenoses, five recurrent, 58 symptomatic and 39 female) with seven innominate vessel occlusions, nine subocclusive(More)
PURPOSE To assess primary success and safety of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and/or stenting of ostial/proximal common carotid artery lesions (pCCA) and to compare its 30-day stroke/mortality level with the literature data for surgical options. METHODS A total of 147 patients (153 stenoses, 6 recurrent) (71 female; 121 left) with(More)
Intraaortic balloon pump (IABP) is being used in cardiac surgery in an increased ratio. IABP therapy involves considerable risk, mainly vascular complications, postoperative bleeding and infection can represent danger. Between 1999 and 2004 out of 4443 open heart surgery operations we have performed intraaortic balloon pump treatment in case of 75 patients.(More)
Percutaneous endovascular treatment (transluminar balloon angioplasty with or without stent implantation) of innominate artery lesions has become the treatment of choice prior to surgery in the past decades. Authors present the diagnostics, treatment and follow-up of two patients as examples from their largest series in the literature. A 74-year-old male(More)
OBJECTIVE Stenting is the preferred, minimally invasive treatment for innominate artery (IA) stenosis or occlusion. Stent fractures in the IA have not been assessed in larger cohorts. In this retrospective study, we examined the frequency and risk factors of IA stent fractures. METHODS The final analysis included 32 patients (15 women; mean age, 59.4 ±(More)
