INTRODUCTION Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is increasingly used in cardiac arrest (CA). Adequacy of carotid and coronary blood flows (CaBF, CoBF) and coronary perfusion pressure (CoPP) in ECMO treated CA is not well established. This study compares femoro-femoral (FF) to femoro-subclavian (FS) ECMO and intraaortic balloon counterpulsation(More)
This paper describes an evaluation framework that allows a standardized and quantitative comparison of IVUS lumen and media segmentation algorithms. This framework has been introduced at the MICCAI 2011 Computing and Visualization for (Intra)Vascular Imaging (CVII) workshop, comparing the results of eight teams that participated. We describe the available(More)
The patient is a 57-year-old non-diabetic woman admitted for stable angina caused by tight stenosis of a diagonal branch. This lesion was predilated with a paclitaxel-eluting balloon (2.5 × 20 mm, Sequent, B Braun Mesungen AG, Germany) at 8 atm for 3 min after which a 2.25 × 28 mm bare-metal stent (Trimaxx; Abbott Vascular Redwood City, CA, USA) was(More)
BACKGROUND Left dominant arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (LDAC) is a rare condition characterised by progressive fibrofatty replacement of the myocardium of the left ventricle (LV) in combination with ventricular arrhythmias of LV origin. CASE PRESENTATION A thirty-five-year-old male was referred for evaluation of recurrent sustained monomorphic ventricular(More)
A novel method is reported for simultaneous registration of location (axial direction) and orientation (circumferential direction) of two intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) pullbacks of the same vessel taken at different times. Monitoring plaque progression or regression (e.g., during lipid treatment) is of high clinical relevance. Our method uses a 3D graph(More)
