Angioplasty, Balloon: Use of a balloon catheter for dilation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of BALLOON DILATION in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, CORONARY is available.Catheterization: Use or insertion of a tubular device into a duct, blood vessel, hollow organ, or body cavity for injecting or withdrawing fluids for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. It differs from INTUBATION in that the tube here is used to restore or maintain patency in obstructions.Angioplasty, Balloon, Coronary: Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.Balloon Occlusion: Use of a balloon CATHETER to block the flow of blood through an artery or vein.Elastic Modulus: Numerical expression indicating the measure of stiffness in a material. It is defined by the ratio of stress in a unit area of substance to the resulting deformation (strain). This allows the behavior of a material under load (such as bone) to be calculated.Intra-Aortic Balloon Pumping: Counterpulsation in which a pumping unit synchronized with the patient's electrocardiogram rapidly fills a balloon in the aorta with helium or carbon dioxide in early diastole and evacuates the balloon at the onset of systole. As the balloon inflates, it raises aortic diastolic pressure, and as it deflates, it lowers aortic systolic pressure. The result is a decrease in left ventricular work and increased myocardial and peripheral perfusion.Gastric Balloon: An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.Coronary Vessels: The veins and arteries of the HEART.Penile Prosthesis: Rigid, semi-rigid, or inflatable cylindric hydraulic devices, with either combined or separate reservoir and pumping systems, implanted for the surgical treatment of organic ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION.Equipment Design: Methods of creating machines and devices.Stents: Devices that provide support for tubular structures that are being anastomosed or for body cavities during skin grafting.Coronary Angiography: Radiography of the vascular system of the heart muscle after injection of a contrast medium.Angioplasty: Reconstruction or repair of a blood vessel, which includes the widening of a pathological narrowing of an artery or vein by the removal of atheromatous plaque material and/or the endothelial lining as well, or by dilatation (BALLOON ANGIOPLASTY) to compress an ATHEROMA. Except for ENDARTERECTOMY, usually these procedures are performed via catheterization as minimally invasive ENDOVASCULAR PROCEDURES.Angioplasty, Laser: A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).Coronary Disease: An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels.Cryotherapy: A form of therapy consisting in the local or general use of cold. The selective destruction of tissue by extreme cold or freezing is CRYOSURGERY. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)Recurrence: The return of a sign, symptom, or disease after a remission.Angioplasty, Balloon, Laser-Assisted: Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.Constriction, Pathologic: The condition of an anatomical structure's being constricted beyond normal dimensions.Arteriosclerosis: Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of ARTERIES of all sizes. There are many forms classified by the types of lesions and arteries involved, such as ATHEROSCLEROSIS with fatty lesions in the ARTERIAL INTIMA of medium and large muscular arteries.Stroke: A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)Arteries: The vessels carrying blood away from the heart.Elasticity: Resistance and recovery from distortion of shape.Regional Blood Flow: The flow of BLOOD through or around an organ or region of the body.Rupture: Forcible or traumatic tear or break of an organ or other soft part of the body.Atherosclerosis: A thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of ARTERIES that occurs with formation of ATHEROSCLEROTIC PLAQUES within the ARTERIAL INTIMA.Arteriosclerosis Obliterans: Common occlusive arterial disease which is caused by ATHEROSCLEROSIS. It is characterized by lesions in the innermost layer (ARTERIAL INTIMA) of arteries including the AORTA and its branches to the extremities. Risk factors include smoking, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, and HYPERTENSION.Saphenous Vein: The vein which drains the foot and leg.Graft Occlusion, Vascular: Obstruction of flow in biological or prosthetic vascular grafts.Veins: The vessels carrying blood away from the capillary beds.Coronary Artery Bypass: Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.Vascular Patency: The degree to which BLOOD VESSELS are not blocked or obstructed.Vasoconstriction: The physiological narrowing of BLOOD VESSELS by contraction of the VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE.Carotid Arteries: Either of the two principal arteries on both sides of the neck that supply blood to the head and neck; each divides into two branches, the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.Chills: The sudden sensation of being cold. It may be accompanied by SHIVERING.Aorta, Thoracic: The portion of the descending aorta proceeding from the arch of the aorta and extending to the DIAPHRAGM, eventually connecting to the ABDOMINAL AORTA.Vasomotor System: The neural systems which act on VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE to control blood vessel diameter. The major neural control is through the sympathetic nervous system.Rabbits: The species Oryctolagus cuniculus, in the family Leporidae, order LAGOMORPHA.

Surgical transluminal iliac angioplasty with selective stenting: long-term results assessed by means of duplex scanning. (1/1972)

PURPOSE: The safety of iliac angioplasty and selective stenting performed in the operating room by vascular surgeons was evaluated, and the short- and long-term results were assessed by means of serial duplex scanning. METHODS: Between 1989 and 1996, 281 iliac stenotic or occlusive lesions in 235 consecutive patients with chronic limb ischemia were treated by means of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) alone (n = 214) or PTA with stent (n = 67, 23.8%). There were 260 primary lesions and 21 restenosis after a first PTA, which were analyzed separately. Stents were implanted in selected cases, either primarily in totally occluded arteries or after suboptimum results of PTA (ie, residual stenosis or a dissection). Data were collected prospectively and analyzed retrospectively. Results were reported in an intention-to-treat basis. Clinical results and patency were evaluated by means of symptom assessment, ankle brachial pressure index, and duplex scanning at discharge and 1, 3, 6, and every 12 months after angioplasty. To identify factors that may affect outcome, 12 clinical and radiological variables, including the four categories of lesions defined by the Standards of Practice Committee of the Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, were analyzed separately. The statistical significances of life-table analysis of patency were determined by means of the log-rank test. RESULTS: There were no postoperative deaths or amputations. Local, general, and vascular complications occurred in 2.1%, 1.3% and 4.7% of cases, respectively (total, 8.1%). The mean follow-up period was 29.6 months. The cumulative patency rates +/- SE of the 260 PTAs (including 55 PTAs plus stents) were 92.9% +/- 1.5% at 1 month, 86. 5% +/- 1.7% at 1 year, 81.2% +/- 2.3% at 2 years, 78.8% +/- 2.9% at 3 years, and 75.4% +/- 3.5% at 5 and 6 years. The two-year patency rate of 21 redo PTAs (including 11 PTAs plus stents) was 79.1% +/- 18.2%. Of 12 predictable variables studied in the first PTA group, only the category of the lesion was predictive of long-term patency. The two-year patency rate was 84% +/- 3% for 199 category 1 lesions and 69.7% +/- 6.5% for 61 category 2, 3, and 4 lesions together (P =. 02). There was no difference of patency in the stented and nonstented group. CONCLUSION: Iliac PTA alone or with the use of a stent (in cases of occlusion and/or suboptimal results of PTA) offers an excellent long-term patency rate. Categorization of lesions remains useful in predicting long-term outcome. PTA can be performed safely by vascular surgeons in the operating room and should be considered to be the primary treatment for localized iliac occlusive disease.  (+info)

Plaque area increase and vascular remodeling contribute to lumen area change after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the femoropopliteal artery: an intravascular ultrasound study. (2/1972)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to assess the change in lumen area (LA), plaque area (PLA), and vessel area (VA) after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the femoropopliteal artery. METHODS: This was a prospective study. Twenty patients were studied with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) immediately after PTA and at follow-up examination. Multiple corresponding IVUS cross-sections were analyzed at the segments that were dilated by PTA (ie, treated sites; n = 168), including the most stenotic site (n = 20) and the nondilated segments (ie, reference sites; n = 77). RESULTS: At follow-up examination, both the PLA increase (13%) and the VA decrease (9%) resulted in a significant LA decrease (43%) at the most stenotic sites (P =.001). At the treated sites, the LA decrease (15%) was smaller and was caused by the PLA increase (15%). At the reference sites, the PLA increase (15%) and the VA increase (6%) resulted in a slight LA decrease (3%). An analysis of the IVUS cross-sections that were grouped according to LA change (difference >/=10%) revealed a similar PLA increase in all the groups: the type of vascular remodeling (VA decrease, no change, or increase) determined the LA change. At the treated sites, the LA change and the VA change correlated closely (r = 0.77, P <.001). At the treated sites, significantly more PLA increase was seen in the IVUS cross-sections that showed hard lesion or media rupture (P <.05). No relationship was found between the presence of dissection and the quantitative changes. CONCLUSION: At the most stenotic sites, lumen narrowing was caused by plaque increase and vessel shrinkage. Both the treated sites and the reference sites showed a significant PLA increase: the type of vascular remodeling determined the LA change at follow-up examination. The extent of the PLA increase was significantly larger in the IVUS cross-sections that showed hard lesion or media rupture.  (+info)

Intraoperative transoesophageal echocardiography as an adjuvant to fluoroscopy during endovascular thoracic aortic repair. (3/1972)

OBJECTIVES: To define the utility of intraoperative transeophageal echocardiography (TEE) during endovascular thoracic aortic repair. DESIGN: Retrospective study. MATERIALS: Five patients underwent six transluminal endovascular stent-graft procedures for repair of thoracic aortic disease. METHODS: After induction of anaesthesia, a multiplane or biplane TEE probe was placed to obtain views of the diseased aorta. Both transverse and longitudinal planes of the aortic arch and descending thoracic aortic segments were imaged. The aortic pathology was confirmed by TEE and the proximal and distal extents of the intrathoracic lesion were defined. Doppler and colour-flow imaging was used to identify flow patterns through the aorta before and after stent-graft deployment. RESULTS: Visualisation and confirmation of the aortic pathology by ultrasonography was accomplished in all patients. TEE was able to confirm proper placement of the endograft relative to the aortic lesion after deployment and was able to confirm exclusion of blood flow into the aneurysm sacs. CONCLUSIONS: TEE may facilitate repair by confirming aortic pathology, identifying endograft placement, assessment of the adequacy of aneurysm sack isolation, as well as dynamic intraoperative cardiac assessment.  (+info)

Effect and outcome of balloon angioplasty and stenting of the iliac arteries evaluated by intravascular ultrasound. (4/1972)

OBJECTIVES: To document the mechanism of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and stenting of the iliac arteries, and to relate the effect to patency. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-seven stenotic iliac arteries were examined by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and arteriography before and after PTA, and after stent deployment (n = 16). The patients were followed prospectively by duplex scanning at 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months after the intervention. RESULTS: The effect of PTA was established by both compression and stretching with the major contribution arising from stretching. There were differences in the effect of PTA dependent on plaque morphology: in homogeneous eccentric lesions, stretching contributed significantly more than compression to the luminal gain, while stretching and compression contributed equally in concentric or heterogeneous plaques. Stenting of the arteries had no effect on the free luminal area as measured by IVUS. The primary 1-year patency rate was 72%. The patency was related to the free luminal area and diameter and the heterogenicity of the plaque as evaluated by IVUS. The arteriographic measurements did not have any predictive value. CONCLUSION: IVUS was able to document the effect of PTA and stenting in the iliac arteries, and predict the outcome. The luminal gain and reduction in degree of stenosis seemed to be accomplished primarily by stretching of the arteries and to a lesser extent by plaque compression. Stenting did not change the IVUS measurements. Patency was related to the size of the free lumen and the heterogenicity of the plaque.  (+info)

Antegrade visceral revascularisation via a thoracoabdominal approach for chronic mesenteric ischaemia. (5/1972)

OBJECTIVES: It has been suggested that patients with chronic visceral ischaemia are elderly and emaciated hence they may not tolerate antegrade visceral revascularisation via a thoracoabdominal approach. There are no studies to support this assumption. The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of this approach for the treatment of chronic visceral ischaemia. METHODS: Between 1988 and 1996, 10 patients underwent antegrade visceral revascularisation for chronic visceral ischaemia via a thoracoabdominal approach and were followed-up for a mean of 40 months. Eight patients were treated with aorto superior mesenteric artery bypass and implantation of the coeliac axis in the graft and two patients with aorto superior mesenteric bypass alone. Graft patency was monitored with duplex scanning. RESULTS: There were no postoperative deaths in this series. Two patients developed postoperative pulmonary infections and required intubation for a short period of time. All patients were discharged after a mean of 17 days (range 7-38). Follow up with duplex scanning revealed that all grafts were patent. One patient developed a high grade anastomotic stenosis which was followed by recurrence of the symptoms. This was dilated on three occasions by balloon angioplasty within a period of 17 months. On the last occasion a stent was placed and since the patient remains asymptomatic. CONCLUSIONS: Antegrade visceral revascularisation via a thoracoabdominal approach is a durable and effective method of relieving symptoms of chronic visceral ischaemia. The low morbidity in this series justifies larger studies in order to establish the true incidence of complications.  (+info)

Outcome of the first 100 femoropopliteal angioplasties performed in the operating theatre. (6/1972)

OBJECTIVES: To examine the factors influencing outcome and restenosis in an initial series of 100 infrainguinal angioplasties. DESIGN: Prospective study of angioplasties of the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries performed over a 42-month period. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred consecutive angioplasties in 96 patients performed in the operating theatre between January 1993 and June 1996 were followed prospectively with clinical, ABI, and duplex assessment. Forty-four procedures were for disabling claudication and 56 for critical ischaemia. Stents were deployed in 30 limbs. RESULTS: Angioplasty was successful in 84 of 100 limbs. Cumulative patency of the entire group at 3, 6, 12 and 18 months was 78%, 60%, 53%, and 49% respectively, while excluding initial failures, gave patencies of 95%, 69%, 63%, and 58%, respectively. Claudicants with a 1-year patency of 64% did significantly better than patients with critical ischaemia (44% p < 0.05). Angioplasties performed during the initial 21 months had a 1-year patency of 42%, while those performed in the final 21 months had a 74% patency (p = N.S.). The patency for stented arteries was 66% vs. 49% for angioplasty alone (p = N.S.). The 2-year limb salvage rate was 91% in patents with critical ischaemia. Forty-six per cent of restenoses were asymptomatic. CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that while angioplasty is useful in treating infrainguinal arterial disease, there is a learning curve, resulting in a high restenosis rate for occlusive and multilevel disease, while concomitant placement of stents may be beneficial.  (+info)

Managing Budd-Chiari syndrome: a retrospective review of percutaneous hepatic vein angioplasty and surgical shunting. (7/1972)

BACKGROUND: The role of percutaneous hepatic vein angioplasty in the management of Budd-Chiari syndrome has not been well defined. Over a 10 year period at our unit, we have often used this technique in cases of short length hepatic vein stenosis or occlusion, reserving surgical mesocaval shunting for cases of diffuse hepatic vein occlusion or failed angioplasty. AIMS: To review the outcome of angioplasty and surgical shunting to define their respective roles. PATIENTS: All patients treated by angioplasty or surgical shunting for non-malignant hepatic vein obstruction over a ten year period from 1987 to 1996. METHODS: A case note review of pretreatment features and clinical outcome. RESULTS: Angioplasty was attempted in 21 patients with patent hepatic vein branches and was successful in 18; in three patients treatment was unsuccessful and these patients had surgical shunts. Fifteen patients were treated by surgical shunting only. Mortality according to definitive treatment was 3/18 following angioplasty and 8/18 following surgery; in most cases this reflected high risk status prior to treatment. Venous or shunt reocclusion rates were similar for both groups and were associated with subtherapeutic warfarin in half of these cases. Most surviving patients in both groups are asymptomatic although one surgical patient has chronic hepatic encephalopathy. CONCLUSION: With appropriate case selection, many patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome caused by short length hepatic vein stenosis or occlusion may be managed successfully by angioplasty alone. Medium term outcome is good following this procedure provided that anticoagulation is maintained. Further follow up is required to assess for definitive benefits but we suggest that this should be included as a valid initial approach in the algorithm for management of Budd-Chiari syndrome.  (+info)

Follow-up results of transvenous occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus with the buttoned device. (8/1972)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this presentation is to document results of buttoned device (BD) occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in a large number of patients with particular emphasis on long-term follow-up in an attempt to provide evidence for feasibility, safety and effectiveness of this method of PDA closure. BACKGROUND: Immediate and short-term results of BD occlusion of PDA have been documented in a limited number of children. METHODS: During a six-year period ending August 1996, transcatheter BD closure of PDA was attempted in 284 patients, ages 0.3 to 92 years (median 7) under a protocol approved by the local institutional review boards and FDA with an investigational device exemption in U.S. cases. RESULTS: The PDAs measured 1 to 15 mm (median 4) at the narrowest diameter; 20 were larger than 8 mm and 10 larger than 10 mm. They were occluded with devices measuring from 15 to 35 mm delivered via 7F (N = 140) or 8F (N = 144) sheaths. Successful implantation of the device was accomplished in 278 (98%) of 284 patients. The Qp:Qs decreased from 1.8+/-0.6 (mean+/-SD) to 1.09+/-0.19 (p < 0.001). Effective occlusion defined as no (N = 167 [60%]) or trivial (N = 79 [28%]) residual shunt was achieved in 246 (88%) patients. All types of PDAs, irrespective of the shape (conical, tubular or short), size (small or large) or length (short or long) of the PDA and previously implanted Rashkind devices, could be occluded. Follow-up data, 1 to 60 months (median 24) after device implantation, were available in 234 (84%) patients. Seven (3%) patients required reintervention to treat residual shunt with (N = 2) or without (N = 5) hemolysis. Actuarial reintervention-free rates were 95% at 1 and 5 years. There was gradual reduction of actuarial residual shunts and were 40%, 28%, 21%, 14%, 11%, 10%, 6% and 0% respectively at 1 day, 1, 6, 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60 months after device implantation. Incorporation of folding plug over the button loop in 10 additional patients produced immediate and complete occlusion of PDA. CONCLUSIONS: This large multiinstitutional experience confirms the feasibility, safety and effectiveness of buttoned device closure of PDAs. All types of PDAs irrespective of the shape, length and diameter can be effectively occluded. Incorporation of folding plug over the button loop produces complete PDA occlusion at the time of device implantation.  (+info)

To determine whether balloon angioplasty can provoke arterial vasoconstriction independent of platelet aggregation and neurogenic input, we studied the spontaneous vasomotor effects of balloon dilatation in isolated, perfused whole-vessel segments of rabbit aorta and pig carotid artery. Freshly dissected rabbit thoracic aortas were mounted in a muscle bath-perfusion chamber, perfused with physiologic saline solution at 70 mm Hg, and allowed to equilibrate. The proximal or distal half of the aortas were dilated with either a "large" (5 mm, 31-51% stretch beyond relaxed diameter) or a "small" (4 mm, 5-16% stretch) balloon angioplasty catheter with the other half of the vessel serving as the control. A similar series of experiments were performed in pig carotid arteries using "large" (6 or 8 mm, 48-90% stretch) balloon catheters. The spontaneous vasomotor effects of balloon angioplasty were examined with long-axis, high-frequency ultrasonic imaging combined with computerized edge detection image ...
A balloon angioplasty catheter having a balloon head assembly carried at the distal end of an elongated catheter body. The balloon head assembly includes an inflatable balloon envelope and a perfusion lumen extending through the balloon envelope to provide a blood flow passage during inflation of the balloon envelope. In a preferred embodiment, the perfusion lumen is formed by a helical member having spaced coils encapsulated with a flexible material. A discharge lumen is formed by a projecting tip, the tip being integrally formed with the balloon envelope. Discharge orifices are provided through the tip sidewall. In a preferred embodiment, the side discharge orifices are elongated in the general direction of perfusion flow through the balloon head. The invention also encompasses means for facilitating discharge of perfused blood through the discharge orifices. This is accomplished by valving perfusate flow through the discharge lumen.
Home » Balloon angioplasty. Balloon angioplasty (Science: cardiology) use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, angioplasty, transluminal, percutaneous coronary is available. coronary angioplasty is accomplished using a balloon-tipped catheter inserted through an artery in the groin or arm to enlarge a narrowing in a coronary artery. Coronary artery disease occurs when cholesterol plaque builds up (atherosclerosis) in the walls of the arteries to the heart. angioplasty is successful in opening coronary arteries in 90% of patients. 40% of patients with successful coronary angioplasty will develop recurrent narrowing at the site of balloon inflation. ...
Technical success was 85% and 100% in balloon angioplasty and stent insertion, respectively. Clinical success was achieved in 78% of balloon angioplasties and in 100% of stent insertions. At 1, 5, and 10 years after balloon angioplasty, patency rates were 87%, 82%, and 68% respectively, and the rates of stent patency were all 100%. Portal vein size measured during the operation of patients with and without recurrence were 19±4.2 mm and 19±3.0 mm (P = 0.956), respectively. The balloon size of patients with and without recurrence were 11±1.95 mm and 14±1.66 mm, respectively (P = 0.013), when balloon angioplasty was performed after stenosis diagnosis ...
This study provides evidence that the proximal, angiographically normal reference segment remodels both favorably and unfavorably after balloon angioplasty in this atherosclerotic rabbit model. Late lumen size at the proximal reference site was not determined by neointimal plaque formation, defined as histologically determined intima plus media areas, but was related to the external elastic lamina area, suggesting that arterial remodeling occurs in the proximal reference site after angioplasty. The degree of remodeling in the proximal reference site positively correlated with the amount of neointimal plaque formation at that site. The change in lumen size at the proximal reference site from immediately postangioplasty to 4-week follow-up decreased as late loss increased. There was no difference in proximal reference site diameters at the time of angioplasty; however, reference site diameters were smaller in the restenotic group than in the nonrestenotic group at 4 weeks after angioplasty. ...

In our series the repeat revascularisation rate for restenosis was similar in dialysis and non-dialysis patients. This suggests that dialysis does not affect the clinical restenosis rate when coronary stenting is performed, or when a stent-like result is obtained after balloon angioplasty. The rate was half that reported previously, which has ranged from 47-81%.9-15 In the study by Schoebel and colleagues,5 the six month clinical restenosis rate was 65% in dialysis patients, compared with 37 (9)% following balloon angioplasty (v 21 (10)% in our study). This suggests that residual stenosis is the main predictive factor of restenosis after PTCA, in accordance with previous studies.21-23 In our study dialysis patients with stent-like results had the same clinical restenosis rate as dialysis patients with coronary stenting. However, owing to the small number of patients, this needs to be confirmed in a larger prospective study. In the Benestent II study (second Belgium-Netherlands stent study), ...

Renal artery stenosis (RAS) caused by atherosclerotic changes of the renal arteries has become a concern as a cause of end-stage renal failure. Percutaneous balloon angioplasty with or without endovascular stenting is an increasingly accepted procedure at the expense of classical approaches such as aortorenal bypass and other types of surgery. Renal percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting (RPTAS) represent the first therapeutic choice; however, there is doubt regarding the satisfactory long-term outcome for primary RPTAS. Currently, there is no clear evidence whether or not RPTAS prevents further progressive renal function decline because comparisons between interventional randomized studies and medical therapy are still lacking. Despite the fact that the use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) may be a potential cause of acute renal failure, clinical data suggest that ACEI therapy is associated with better survival in patient with RAS. In our case, the use of ACEIs ...

Angioplasty, also known as balloon angioplasty and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), is a minimally invasive, endovascular procedure to widen narrowed or obstructed arteries or veins, typically to treat arterial atherosclerosis. A deflated balloon attached to a catheter (a balloon catheter) is passed over a guide-wire into the narrowed vessel and then inflated to a fixed size. The balloon forces expansion of the blood vessel and the surrounding muscular wall, allowing an improved blood flow. A stent may be inserted at the time of ballooning to ensure the vessel remains open, and the balloon is then deflated and withdrawn. Angioplasty has come to include all manner of vascular interventions that are typically performed percutaneously. The word is composed of the combining forms of the Greek words ἀγγεῖον angeîon "vessel" or "cavity" (of the human body) and πλάσσω plássō "form" or "mould". A coronary angioplasty is a therapeutic procedure to treat the stenotic ...

PCB has been used for BMS-ISR because previous studies have shown that PCB angioplasty is safe and effective in treating BMS-ISR (1). Although PCB is now widely used, there are few reports on intracoronary imaging of the drug-coated neointima after PCB angioplasty. In the current report, slow-flow phenomenon after PCB angioplasty was observed, and OCT and CAS nicely revealed drug-coated neointimal plaque after PCB angioplasty. To our knowledge, this is the first report of the case that slow-flow phenomenon occurred after PCB angioplasty and drug-coated neointimal plaque was evaluated by OCT and CAS. It was reported that PCB angioplasty was associated with diminished endothelial-dependent vasomotor function (2) and acute decrease in coronary flow reserve (3). In these cases, the slow-flow phenomenon after PCB angioplasty was partly caused by an impaired microvascular response as a result of drugs. In addition, CAS revealed white granular materials that might indicate undissolved drugs on the ...

Apparatus and method are described for delivery of a treating element, such as a radiation source, through a catheter to a desired site in the vascular system of a patient, such as a coronary artery, for inhibiting the formation of scar tissue such as may occur in restenosis following balloon angioplasty. The apparatus includes an elongated flexible catheter tube having proximal and distal end portions, with a lumen extending therebetween, and a diameter sufficiently small for insertion in to a patients vascular system. One or more treating elements, such as a capsule or pellet containing radioactive material, is positionable within the lumen and movable between the proximal and distal end portions under the force of liquid flowing through the lumen. A method for using such apparatus, including a method for using such apparatus simultaneously with a balloon angioplasty procedure, is disclosed.
At the time of the initial reporting of results from NASCET and ECST, the first large multicenter randomized clinical trial comparing an endovascular approach to CEA for symptomatic patients with carotid stenosis was also initiated. In the CAVATAS (Carotid and Vertebral Artery Transluminal Angioplasty Study), 504 patients were randomized to carotid balloon angioplasty (with 26% stent use) versus CEA. The risk of death and ipsilateral stroke at 30 days and 3 years was comparable between the 2 strategies, with a higher risk of cranial nerve palsy (8.7% CEA vs. 0% angioplasty, p , 0.0001) but lower risk of restenosis at 1 year (4% CEA vs. 14% angioplasty, p , 0.001) with CEA (29). Despite the lack of randomized controlled trial data demonstrating the superiority of carotid stenting over balloon angioplasty in reducing restenosis, carotid stenting was increasingly undertaken, as it enabled the treatment of arterial dissections and addressed immediate elastic recoil after balloon angioplasty. ...

Laser thermal-assisted balloon angioplasty (LABA) was prospectively applied in the treatment of 56 atherosclerotic femoropopliteal occlusive lesions in 51 consecutive patients. All procedures were performed in the operating room using a neodynium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser source, and patients were evaluated for immediate and long-term hemodynamic and clinical improvement. Technically successful recanalization was achieved in 82% of cases, with 57% of all patients (32 of 56) obtaining early hemodynamic and clinical improvement. Long-term clinical success (by life-table analysis) was obtained by only 22.5% at 6 months, and only 13.5% at 12 months. Patients presenting with intermittent claudication did significantly better than those presenting for limb salvage (p = 0.01), and trends toward improved outcome were noted for short versus long lesions as well as for patients with "good" versus "poor" distal runoff (NS). Procedure-related morbidity occurred in 14%, and there was one ...

A balloon angioplasty is a medical procedure in which a balloon is used to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels of the heart, known as coronary arteries. A long, slender tube called a catheter with a deflated balloon on its tip is passed into the narrowed artery segment. Then the balloon is inflated and the narrowed segment widened. Then the balloon is deflated and the catheter is removed.. ...
We included nine trials of 4433 participants. Odds ratios for mortality after stenting compared to balloon angioplasty at 30 days, 6 and 12 months were 1.16 (95% CI 0.78 to 1.73), 1.27 (95% CI 0.89 to 1.83), and 1.06 (95% CI 0.77 to 1.45). At 30 days, 6 and 12 months odds ratios for reinfarction after stenting compared to balloon angioplasty were 0.52 (95% CI 0.31 to 0.87), 0.67 (95% CI 0.45 to 1.00), and 0.67 (95% CI 0.45-0.98) and odds ratio for target vessel revascularization after stenting compared to balloon angioplasty were 0.45 (95%CI 0.34 to 0.60), 0.42 (95% CI 0.35 to 0.51), and 0.47 (95% CI 0.38 to 0.57).

Revascularisation rate: 83.2% of patients with femoropopliteal lesions who were treated with Zilver PTX did not require revascularisation after four years. In comparison, 69.4% of patients treated with acutely successful percutaneous transluminal angioplasty or provisional bare metal stent placement did not require revascularisation.. ...
According to his study-"Stent graft vs. balloon angioplasty for failing dialysis-access grafts"- published in the New England Journal of Medicine, anatomic success with the stent graft compared to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty was 94% and 73% respectively. At six months, Haskal explained, binary restenosis was 27.63% for the stent graft and 77.61% for angioplasty.. He also noted that the 12-month reintervention rate to maintain patency was 1.9% for the stent graft and 2.4% for angioplasty. The 12-month index of patency function was 5.3% for the stent graft and 4.4% for angioplasty, for access circuit primary patency it was 24.1% and 10.3%, and for treatment area primary patency it was 4.7% and 24.8% respectively. The latter was statistically significant (p,0.001).. "Results of the study exceeded our expectations, and that is a boon for dialysis patients," said Haskal. "Dialysis is very demanding, and anything that prevents access sites from failing and reduces the need for invasive ...

Balloon angioplasty plays a major role in lower extremity revascularization and will likely be an essential technique in the foreseeable future. Drug-coated balloons have shown promise and will prompt renewed interest in the angioplasty mechanism and how it may be optimized (11-13). In arteries that are obstructed by atherosclerotic plaque, balloon angioplasty increases the vessel lumen diameter by causing dissection. Post-PTA dissections are uncontrolled arterial injuries that are usually manifested by longitudinal tears creating tissue flaps of varying degrees of severity that are visible angiographically. When post-PTA dissection produces a suboptimal result in current practice, the only reasonable option available is stent placement to secure the dissection flap and ensure the integrity of the lumen. Contemporary SFA stent trials conducted primarily in TASC A and B lesions have a stent bailout rate of 35% to 50% in patients randomized to balloon angioplasty (14,15). The more challenging ...
Surgical backup is required for non-emergency angioplasty because, in rare instances, the procedure has led to a tear in a vessel or closing of an artery rather than opening it.
Angioplasty (also called percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, or PTA) is a procedure in which a thin, flexible tube called a catheter is inserted through an artery and guided to the place where the artery is narrowed. Once the tube reaches the narrowed artery, a small balloon at the end of the tube inflates for 20 seconds to 3 minutes. The pressure from the inflated balloon presses the fat and .

A pioneering procedure that saved the life of a kitten with a rare and potentially fatal heart condition could transform the way similar cases are treated in future. In what is believed to be a world first for feline medicine, surgeons from North Downs Specialist Referrals in Surrey successfully performed keyhole surgery on a kitten with a double-chambered right ventricle - a rare condition - meaning it had a severe obstruction on the right side of the heart. Until now, the condition could only be corrected with open-heart surgery. Sylvie recuperating after the successful pioneering cutting balloon angioplasty operation. Image: North Downs Specialist Referrals. The procedure was performed by cardiologist João Loureiro, who believed the kitten was too frail to withstand open-heart surgery, so opted for a keyhole procedure that has historically only been used in dogs, on account of felines having such small hearts. To conduct the cutting balloon angioplasty, Mr Loureiro and fellow cardiology ...
A dilating guide wire for use in percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTCA) has a very small outside diameter which permits it to be used with a PTCA catheter for treatment of tight stenoses in the coronary arteries that cannot be treated by conventional PTCA catheters alone. The dilating guide wire is small enough to pass through the through lumen of the PTCA catheter and extend beyond the distal tip thereof for predilating the stenosis to permit subsequent crossing and dilation by the PTCA catheter. Means may be provided for selectively imparting an axial force to the balloon of the dilating guide wire to cause axial stretching thereof, thereby reducing its profile and facilitating withdrawal of the balloon of the dilating guide wire back into the PTCA catheter. This may be accomplished through manual actuation of a control knob attached to the core, or in another embodiment, automatically through permitted limited movement of the core relative to the outer tubing of the dilating guide wire as the

Articles, see p 2218 and p 2227. Peripheral artery disease affects ,200 million individuals worldwide, and those with exertional leg discomfort, rest pain, and tissue or limb loss have significantly impaired functional status and quality of life. Despite their lower associated risk of repeat revascularization, open surgical procedures have been largely supplanted by endovascular intervention for symptomatic peripheral artery disease given the lower associated morbidity and mortality.1 Although standalone plain-old percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) was previously the standard endovascular strategy for these patients, high procedural failure and restenosis rates led to the development of new therapeutic technologies.2 Stent implantation improved procedural success,3 and a recent meta-analysis of randomized trials suggests that bare metal stenting (BMS) results in half as much restenosis as PTA. Nevertheless, restenosis after femoropopliteal BMS occurs in up to 37% of patients within 12 ...

A study conducted by researchers at UConn and Hartford Hospital found that a little-used treatment option for heart attack patients reduces the risk of death by 61 percent. The study is the only one to date to demonstrate the benefits of administering a low dose of a clot-busting drug before treating patients with balloon angioplasty. Nearly one million heart attacks occur each year in the U.S. Clot-busting drugs and balloon angioplasty are currently the two main alternative treatment options for opening a blocked artery. Balloon angioplasty, an emergency procedure that opens a blocked artery and restores optimum blood flow to and from the heart, is generally the treatment of choice. However, only larger medical centers tend to have the capacity to perform the procedure 24 hours a day. That leaves smaller hospitals faced with the choice of whether to keep heart attack patients and treat them with clot-busting drugs only, or to delay care long enough to transfer the patients to larger medical ...

Objective To determine whether better vena cava (SVC) stent implantation is more advanced than balloon angioplasty for relieving SVC stenosis. SVC stenosis (33%). There have been 108/210 (51%) sufferers with balloon dilation (Group A) and 102/210 (49%) with stent implantation (Group B). Re-intervention within six months of the original involvement was more prevalent in Group A in comparison to Group B [Group A = 31/40 (77.5%); Group B = 5/22 (22.7%)]. The odds-ratio for re-intervention within six months of the original process of balloon vs. stent, is certainly 7.3 [95% CI: (2.91, 22.3), < 0.0001]. Furthermore, during the initial six months after an involvement for SVC stenosis the percentage of sufferers with stent implantation that continued to be free from re-intervention was considerably greater than after balloon angioplasty (log-rank check, < 0.0001). Neither age group nor fat was from the dependence on re-intervention significantly. Conclusions SVC stent implantation works more ...
Since the mid 1990s wire mesh stents have become a standard part of the angioplasty procedure. Unfortunately, these wire cylinders (stents) irritate the smooth muscle cells of the artery walls causing these cells to grow aggressively (to proliferate). This growth is an effort by the body to cover up the foreign metal that has just been introduced into the artery by the surgeon. This should not be surprising. Whenever an irritating alien material is placed in the body, cells grow around it in order to isolate the unfamiliar substance, which the body perceives as potentially harmful. The growth of the muscle cells (and blood clots) eventually closes 20% to 41% of the arteries containing these metal mesh stents.8 Furthermore, the use of stents results in no better survival than angioplasty alone7,9-and remember angioplasty does not improve the chances of living longer.3,4 If only treatments could be developed to stop these cells from growing. Scientists had to look no further than cancer therapy to ...

A balloon angioplasty is when a catheter is inserted through an artery and guided to the place where the artery is narrowed. Depending on which artery is being treated, a stent may be inserted during the angioplasty.
Information on coronary balloon angioplasty and stents. Angioplasty and stent placement is a non-surgical procedure performed to relieve narrowing or obstruction of the arteries to the muscles of the heart.
An angioplasty is a surgical procedure done to unblock or widen a blood vessel. It is commonly done on the coronary arteries that carry blood to the heart.. During a typical angioplasty procedure, the doctor will insert a thin tube called a catheter into an artery in the patients groin or leg. Using an X-ray screen to guide them, the doctor will maneuver the catheter through the arteries until they reach the blocked coronary artery.. The doctor inserts a very thin guidewire through the catheter to or across the blocked and narrowed section of the artery. They then insert another catheter containing an uninflated balloon over the guidewire to the blockage. The doctor inflates the balloon, and it pushes the plaque and other deposits causing the blockage against the arterys walls. Depending on the size and extent of the blockage, the doctor may inflate the balloon several times..

The balloon comprises at least one relatively thin section formed between inner and outer surfaces of the balloon, and at least one relatively thick section formed between the inner and outer surfaces. The balloon may be formed from a balloon preform that similarly comprises at least one relatively thin section and at least one relatively thick section. The shape of the balloon preform may be formed, for example, by extrusion. The balloon preform may be placed in a balloon mold having a substantially cylindrical interior surface, and blow-molded to form the finished balloon configuration. The balloon comprises a non-uniform thickness, while comprising a substantially cylindrical outer diameter both after removal from the balloon mold and in an inflated state.
A stent is a wire-mesh tube used to open a coronary artery during angioplasty, a process for the removal or compression of plaque. Their design is of significance for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with stenting. During this procedure, a stent is deployed into the blood vessel by means of a balloon. The expanded stent acts as a scaffold that keeps the blood vessel open.. During this procedure, damage can be inflicted on the artery by both the nonuniform expansion of the stent, as well as by its foreshortening. To check the viability of a stent design, you can study the deformation process under the influence of the radial pressure that expands the stent. With this model you can both monitor the dogboning and foreshortening effects, and draw conclusions on how to change the geometry design parameters for optimum performance.. ...

Wissgott stated, "Restoring blood flow to the legs in patients with critical limb ischaemia is vitally important to their quality of life and survival. We have few treatments that have a demonstrated ability to keep the small arteries below the knee open over 12 months, so these TOBA-BTK results are truly encouraging. These data suggest that repairing arterial dissections following angioplasty below the knee, using the minimal metal design approach of the Tack implant, can keep the treated arteries open and blood flowing.". Patients in the study demonstrated a marked improvement, as measured by the Rutherford classification system. The study data suggest that an increasing number of patients continue to improve, with 75% of patients experiencing a four- or five-step improvement in Rutherford classification from baseline (p,0.0001) at 12 months.. Wissgott continued, "The Tack endovascular system holds much promise for improving the long-term outcomes associated with balloon angioplasty below the ...
RESULTS Recanalization was accomplished in eight patients with intraarterial local thrombolysis; four of these patients had a good clinical outcome. Two factors characteristic of those whose treatment was successful were dramatic improvement of symptoms after partial recanalization achieved within 3 hours of onset and stabilized improvement after subsequent percutaneous transluminal angioplasty or carotid endarterectomy for residual atherosclerotic stenosis at the ICA origin. ...

A method for forming a balloon for a dilation catheter is provided herein. The method includes the steps of: (i) positioning a tube in a preconditioned mold; (ii) expanding the tube in a preconditioned mold to form a parison; (iii) positioning the parison in a balloon mold; and (iv) expanding the parison within the balloon mold to form the balloon. Thus, the tube is initially expanded into a parison in the preconditioned mold. Subsequently, the parison is expanded into a balloon in the balloon mold. Because of this unique manufacturing process, polyester block copolymers can be formed into balloons. Some of these polyester block copolymers could not be formed into a balloon using prior art blow molding processes. The resulting balloon exhibits superior characteristics, including relatively thin and consistent walls, soft texture, low uninflated crossing profile, expansion in a predictable fashion, and good tensile strength.
A dilation catheter suitable for use in medical procedures is provided. The catheter includes a balloon disposed on an elongated tube. The tube is capable of passing fluid between the balloon and the tube for varying the balloon between an inflated expanded condition and a deflated collapsed condition. The balloon includes a longitudinally extending septum which cooperates with the exterior skin of the balloon to separate the balloon into a plurality of substantially equally sized chambers. The septum further cooperates with the balloon to form at least one longitudinally extending channel disposed outwardly of the exterior surface between adjacent chambers of the balloon. The channels allow blood to be perfused past the balloon when the balloon is disposed in a body vessel in its expanded condition.

Atherosclerosis is a form of arteriosclerosis in which the inner layers of artery walls become thick and irregular because of deposits of fat, cholesterol and other substances. This buildup is called plaque and can cause arteries to narrow, reducing the blood flow through them. Eventually plaque can erode the wall of the artery and diminish its elasticity. Plaque deposits can rupture, causing blood clots to form at the rupture that can block blood flow or break off and travel to another part of the body. This is a common cause of heart attack or ischemic stroke. ...

An electromechanical system which may be used in conjunction with spinning catheters, such as those which have differential cutting burrs, includes an electric prime mover which attaches to an advancer assembly. The advancer assembly has an off-axis drive and apparatus for loading a catheter unit, which is driven through a catheter engagement coupling. The catheter assembly can also include one or two lumens with access ports at the advancer assembly, whereby medicines may be injected or pressure readings may be obtained from the vessel.
Implanting a stent does not require open surgery. The doctor inserts a catheter into an artery in your arm or leg, similar to the balloon angioplasty procedure. A specially designed catheter delivers the stent to the narrow area in the artery. The stent is expanded, flattening the plaque against the artery wall and holding the artery open with a mesh tube. The catheter used to deliver the stent is then removed, but the stent stays in your artery permanently to maintain healthy blood flow.. Benefits:. ...

Atherectomy led to better postprocedural luminal dimensions but was similar to angioplasty for 6-month outcomes in left anterior descending coronary arteries. Coronary atherectomy, endoluminal stenting, and laser angioplasty are alternative interventions to balloon angioplasty (PTCA) for the percutaneous revascularization of obstructive CAD. They were developed because of the persistent unacceptably high restenosis rate (30% to 50%) associated with PTCA. The Coronary Angioplasty versus Excisional Atherectomy Trial (CAVEAT) by Topol and colleagues and the Canadian Coronary Atherectomy Trial (CCAT) by Adelman and colleagues are important because they are the first randomized trials to compare PTCA with an alternative intervention device. In fact, only 2 other randomized trials with PTCA have been reported: the Angioplasty Compared to Medicine (ACME) trial in patients with single-vessel disease and the Randomized Intervention Treatment of Angina (RITA) trial comparing PTCA with bypass graft ...

Case Description This study reports the case of an Asian man in his 50s who had motor aphasia and right-side weakness caused by pseudo-occlusion of the left ICA. After medical treatment, he underwent a staged angioplasty. After the first stage of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, anterograde blood flow to the left ...
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a potentially curable condition [1]. The current treatment of choice for CTEPH is pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) in patients who are considered candidates for surgical therapy. However, some CTEPH patients have thrombotic disease that affects the distal segmental pulmonary artery branches, while others have major medical co-morbidities which make them less than optimal candidates for surgical PEA. So, what are the alternatives when there is an inadequate response to medical therapy with pulmonary vasodilating agents such as Riociguat? Angioplasty has been performed in most vascular beds with excellent results since Dr. Andreas Gruentzig paved the way for balloon angioplasty. However, experience with angioplasty in the pulmonary vasculature has been mostly limited to pediatric patients with congenital pulmonary artery stenosis.. A group from Boston had explored the possibility of performing pulmonary angioplasty to treat patients with CTEPH ...
The majority of the patients (n = 19) presented with symptomatic arm, breast, and facial swelling; and 6 patients presented with dialysis-access dysfunction and venous-line hypertension. The etiology of CVSO was before central venous catheter in all but 2 patients. Venography showed 19 cases of stenosis (4 stenoses of superior vena cava, 3 brachiocephalic, 10 subclavian, and 2 axillary veins) and 6 occlusions of the superior vena cava. After percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and primary stent angioplasty, there was an immediate regression of symptoms and arteriovenous fistula preservation in 21 cases; 4 patients received a new arteriovenous fistula after interventional treatment. No procedural major complications or patient deaths occurred. During the follow-up period, we recorded a primary patency rate of 95%, 80%, and 70%, respectively, at 6, 12, and 18 months; and a secondary patency rate of 100%, 95%, and 90%, respectively, at 6, 12, and 18 months. In conclusion, endovascular treatment ...
The present study is the first to demonstrate that a continuous supply of tissue kallikrein by way of gene transfer suppresses neointima formation in balloon-injured artery. Balloon angioplasty resulted in decreased endogenous rat tissue kallikrein expression. Expression of recombinant human tissue kallikrein at the injured site results in significant reduction of intima/media ratio and neointima formation, and time-dependent increases of cAMP and cGMP levels. Icatibant, a bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist, abolished both the protected effect of kallikrein on arterial thickening and the increases in cAMP and cGMP levels. Kallikrein gene transfer also suppresses the proliferation of VSMCs in vitro. These results suggest that inhibition of neointima formation in injured artery after kallikrein gene delivery is mediated by kinin with subsequent activation of second messengers such as cAMP and cGMP in blood vessels. These findings provide important insights into the role of the vascular ...
Recent data on carotid artery stenting have been encouraging, and technologies and studies on the horizon also seem promising. However, good outcomes are dependent on the experience of the operator and on appropriately selecting patients. In this Q&A, Chris Metzger, MD, shares his thoughts on recent studies and on best practices for performing carotid artery stenting. Dr Metzger is an interventional cardiologist at the Wellmont CVA Heart Institute in Kingsport, Tennessee, and he will be speaking on this topic at the International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) in Hollywood, Florida.. Are there any changes in recent data or technology advances that you want to highlight?. I am very excited that the newest data supplements the safety, durability, and effectiveness of carotid stenting. The CREST 10-year data were published and showed that carotid stenting was at least equivalent to carotid endarterectomy at 10 years in terms of preventing strokes and keeping the carotid artery open. ...
