BACKGROUND Endovascular revascularization of chronic total occlusion (CTO) of the iliac arteries is rapidly becoming first-line treatment, with surgical aortofemoral bypass procedures reserved for failure of endovascular treatment. Percutaneous subintimal recanalization is the most common endovascular revascularization technique for CTO of the iliac(More)
PURPOSE To present the techniques for endovascular treatment of thrombosed filter-bearing inferior vena cavae (IVCs), along with short-term clinical and imaging follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 45 consecutive patients (17 females and 28 males), aged 19-79 years (mean age of 49 years), who had IVC filter placement complicated by symptomatic(More)
ALI = acute limb ischemia, APSAC = antistreplase, MTD = mechanical thromboembolectomy device, PAT = percutaneous aspiration thromboembolectomy, pro-UK = prourokinase, RPA = reteplase, r-UK = recombinant urokinase, SK = streptokinase, STILE = Surgery versus Thrombolysis for Ischemia of the Lower Extremity [study], tPA = tissue plasminogen activator, TOPAS =(More)
Eustachian valve (EV) endocarditis is extremely rare and often difficult to diagnose. An extensive review of the English literature has shown no report of EV endocarditis as a complication of the automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD). A rare case is reported following AICD placement that was diagnosed by clinical findings of sepsis and(More)
Interpenetrating polymer networks of polyurethane and vinyl monomers such as polyacrylamide, polyvinyl pyrrolidone, poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) and poly(methyl methacrylate) were implanted intramuscularly in rabbits. Attempts were made to correlate the morphological aspects of the interpenetrating polymer networks to their histological response. A(More)
