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.

It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.Pulmonary Valve Stenosis: The pathologic narrowing of the orifice of the PULMONARY VALVE. This lesion restricts blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE to the PULMONARY ARTERY. When the trileaflet valve is fused into an imperforate membrane, the blockage is complete.Ischemia: A hypoperfusion of the BLOOD through an organ or tissue caused by a PATHOLOGIC CONSTRICTION or obstruction of its BLOOD VESSELS, or an absence of BLOOD CIRCULATION.Ultrasonography, Interventional: The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.Renal Artery Obstruction: Narrowing or occlusion of the RENAL ARTERY or arteries.

(From Dorland, 28th ed)Myocardial Reperfusion: Generally, restoration of blood supply to heart tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. Reperfusion can be induced to treat ischemia. Methods include chemical dissolution of an occluding thrombus, administration of vasodilator drugs, angioplasty, catheterization, and artery bypass graft surgery. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.Collateral Circulation: Maintenance of blood flow to an organ despite obstruction of a principal vessel.

The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.Myocardial Ischemia: A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart.

Treatment of in-stent restenosis with excimer laser coronary angioplasty versus rotational atherectomy: comparative mechanisms and results. (1/46)

BACKGROUND: Atheroablation yields improved clinical results for balloon angioplasty (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, PTCA) in the treatment of diffuse in-stent restenosis (ISR). METHODS AND RESULTS: We compared the mechanisms and clinical results of excimer laser coronary angioplasty (ELCA) versus rotational atherectomy (RA), both followed by adjunct PTCA; 119 patients (158 ISR lesions) were treated with ELCA+PTCA and 130 patients (161 ISR lesions) were treated with RA+PTCA. Quantitative coronary angiographic and planar intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) measurements were performed routinely. In addition, volumetric IVUS analysis to compare the mechanisms of lumen enlargement was performed in 28 patients with 30 lesions (16 ELCA+PTCA, 14 RA+PTCA). There were no significant between-group differences in preintervention or final postintervention quantitative coronary angiographic or planar IVUS measurements of luminal dimensions. Angiographic success and major in-hospital complications with the 2 techniques were also similar. Volumetric IVUS analysis showed significantly greater reduction in intimal hyperplasia volume after RA than after ELCA (43+/-14 versus 19+/-10 mm(3), P<0.001) because of a significantly higher ablation efficiency (90+/-10% versus 76+/-12%, P = 0.004). However, both interventional strategies had similar long-term clinical outcome; 1-year target lesion revascularization rate was 26% with ELCA+PTCA versus 28% with RA+PTCA (P = NS). CONCLUSIONS: Despite certain differences in the mechanisms of lumen enlargement, both ELCA+PTCA and RA+PTCA can be used to treat diffuse ISR with similar clinical results.  (+info)

METHODS: Ninety-six consecutive patients successfully treated with ELCA within 141 stents were included in a six-month clinical and angiographic follow-up. RESULTS: During follow-up there was one sudden death and one patient with documented myocardial infarction. Angina pectoris classified as > or = Canadian Cardiovascular Society II reoccurred in 49 patients. Follow-up angiography was obtained in 89 patients (93%) with 133 stents. Quantitative coronary angiography revealed a mean diameter stenosis of 77 +/- 10% before intervention, 41 +/- 12% after laser treatment and 11% +/- 12% after adjunctive percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (p < 0.001). Six months after ELCA the mean diameter stenosis had increased to 60 +/- 26% (p < 0.001). A > or =50% diameter stenosis was present in 48 patients (54%); in 24 of these patients diameter stenosis was > or =70%. Total occlusions occurred in an additional 10 patients (11%). There was a trend toward an increased recurrent restenosis rate in patients with diabetes mellitus and long lesions or total occlusions (p = 0.059). Forty-eight patients (50%) received medical treatment after six months. Reinterventions were necessary in 30 patients (31%), and coronary artery bypass surgery was performed in 17 patients (18%). Event-free survival was 50%. CONCLUSIONS: Excimer laser angioplasty for in-stent restenosis was associated with a high incidence of recurrent restenosis in this group of patients, suggesting that this technique is unlikely to reduce recurrent in-stent restenosis and that other approaches are necessary.  (+info)

Clinical and angiographic outcome in patients with in-stent restenosis and repeat target lesion revascularisation in small coronary arteries. (3/46)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical and angiographic outcome in patients with in-stent restenosis in small coronary arteries and repeat target lesion revascularisation. DESIGN: Patients with in-stent restenosis in coronary arteries < or = 2.85 mm were eligible for the study and underwent target lesion revascularisation. Clinical and angiographic variables were assessed during a six month follow up period. RESULTS: 73 patients with 79 lesions were treated by percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (47%), excimer laser angioplasty (25%), or restenting (28%). The mean (SD) reference diameter before target lesion revascularisation was 2.12 (0.5) mm. Procedural success was achieved in all cases, but 57% of the patients had restenosis after six months. The rate of further restenosis was higher with laser angioplasty (78%) than with restenting (47%) or balloon angioplasty alone (49%, p < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Treatment for in-stent restenosis in small coronary arteries is feasible and safe, with a second restenosis rate comparable to large coronary artery series. The strategy of target lesion revascularisation influences further in-stent restenosis, with an increased rate with laser angioplasty compared with restenting and repeat dilatation alone.  (+info)

Treatment of in-stent coronary restenosis with excimer laser angioplasty. (4/46)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of excimer laser coronary angioplasty (ELCA) with adjunctive balloon angioplasty in patient with in-stent restenosis. METHODS: ELCA was performed in 20 patients of instent restenosis. All patients were symptomatic and had class III-IV angina. ELCA was performed with the Spectranetics CVX-300 System. The laser catheter of Vittesse C (concentric) and E (eccentric) with diameter of 1.4-2.0 mm was used. RESULTS: Laser catheter crossed all stenotic stents without difficulty. The lesion length was 4.6-51.2 mm, mean 20.7 +/- 13.7 mm, including 14 lesions > 10 mm. Laser treatment alone increased minimal lumen diameter (MLD) from 0.3 +/- 0.3 mm to 1.4 +/- 0.3 mm (P < 0.0001) and improved the diameter stenosis from 88.8% +/- 10.0% to 46.0% +/- 8.0% (P < 0.0001). Adjunctive balloon angioplasty further increased minimal lumen diameter to 2.3 +/- 0.7 mm and reduced diameter stenosis to 14.2% +/- 8.2% (P < 0.0001). At follow-up (1-17 months, mean 8.9 +/- 5.7 months), 17 (85%) patients had remained asymptomatic, 3 (15%) patients had mild to moderate exertional angina, 1 (5%) patient received CABG. CONCLUSION: ELCA with adjunctive percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is an efficient and safe technique to debulk tissue in the patient with in-stent restenosis. The incidence of procedural related complication was low and ELCA may be used as a good method for in-stent restenosis treatment.  (+info)

Coronary flow velocity and disturbed flow predict adverse clinical outcome after coronary angioplasty. (5/46)

OBJECTIVE: Laminar flow becomes disturbed at high velocities, reducing shear stress and augmenting vascular inflammation and proliferation, processes that are pivotal in restenosis and atherogenesis. We hypothesized that disturbed blood flow after coronary angioplasty is associated with adverse long-term clinical outcome. METHODS AND RESULTS: The cineangiograms from 97 patients undergoing laser-assisted coronary angioplasty were analyzed. Coronary blood flow velocity, the residual lesion dimensions, and the Reynolds number (an index of disturbed flow) were measured by using a frame-counting technique and quantitative coronary angiography. Cox proportional hazards were used to assess the relative risk of adverse events (target-vessel revascularization, myocardial infarction, or death) over a mean 2.5 years after the index procedure. There were 41 adverse events during 245 patient years of follow-up (17% per year of follow-up). The risk of an adverse event was increased for patients with a high flow velocity (>250 mm/s; relative risk 2.5, 95% CI 1.3 to 4.7) or a high Reynolds number (>200) at the stenosis inlet (relative risk 2.1, 95% CI 1.1 to 4.1) at the end of the procedure. Adjustment for other factors did not alter these results. CONCLUSIONS: High Reynolds numbers, indicating disturbed blood flow after coronary angioplasty, increase the risk of adverse clinical events, potentially through shear-stress-related molecular mechanisms that promote restenosis and atherogenesis.  (+info)

Excimer laser-assisted high-flow extracranial/intracranial bypass in patients with symptomatic carotid artery occlusion at high risk of recurrent cerebral ischemia: safety and long-term outcome. (6/46)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to determine safety and long-term outcome of the excimer laser-assisted high-flow extracranial/intracranial (EC/IC) bypass in patients with symptomatic carotid artery occlusion (CAO) at high risk of recurrent stroke. METHODS: In a prospectively collected cohort of 103 patients with symptomatic CAO, 15 patients were selected for excimer laser-assisted EC/IC bypass surgery on the basis of predefined selection criteria: (1) transient or moderately disabling symptoms of focal cerebral ischemia, not symptoms of the retina only; (2) continuing symptoms after documentation of the CAO; (3) evidence of a possible hemodynamic origin of symptoms; and (4) informed consent of the patient. RESULTS: Eleven patients underwent the operation without complications One patient had a severely disabling stroke (Rankin grade 4) 11 days after the operation; the bypass was found occluded on reoperation. Two other patients had a moderately disabling stroke (Rankin grade 3) immediately after the operation. One patient died of myocardial infarction 1 day after surgery. Median follow-up time was 27 months. Of the 11 patients who underwent the operation without complications, 1 died 17 months after the operation of a brainstem stroke, and another patient had a new stroke ipsilateral to his CAO 10 months after the operation but without a change in Rankin grade. CONCLUSIONS: The excimer laser-assisted high-flow EC/IC bypass operation is a potentially promising procedure in patients with symptomatic CAO and a presumably high risk of recurrent stroke, but the procedure carries a definite risk. This risk is probably related not only to the procedure itself but also to the selection of patients.  (+info)

Treatment of in-stent restenosis with excimer laser coronary angioplasty. (7/46)

Diffuse in-stent restenosis remains an important problem in percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). In this trial, we studied the early and mid-term outcomes of excimer laser coronary angioplasty (ELCA) on diffuse in-stent restenosis. ELCA was performed in 23 patients (19 males). The mean length of the lesions was 14.3 +/- 3 mm and the mean age was 58 +/- 7 years. The minimal lumen diameter (MLD) was measured by on-line quantitative coronary angiography. Before the procedure, MLD was 0.9 +/- 0.4. The Q/non-Q-wave myocardial infarction (MI), coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), PTCA, and mortality were recorded during the procedure and at 6 months follow up. The fluence of laser emission was 45 mj/m2 and the repetition rate was 25 pulses per second. Adjunctive balloon angioplasty was performed in all of the cases at a mean 7 +/- 2 atm pressure. The procedure was successfully performed in all of the cases. Type-B dissection developed, after ELCA in 1 patient (4%). Perforation, death, cerebrovascular accidents, emergency CABG, PTCA or Q/non-Q wave myocardial infarction were not observed. MLD was 0.9 +/- 0.4 mm before ELCA, 1.8 +/- 0.9 mm (P<0.05) after ELCA, and 3.1 +/- 0.7 mm after PTCA. At 6 months follow up, there were 2 (8.7%) Q-wave myocardial infarctions and 2 (8.7%) recurrent anginal pain cases. Control angiography was obtained in 20 cases (87%). Control angiography was not accepted by 3 patients. Their maximal exercise test was negative. Angiographic restenosis was observed in 6 cases (30%). The rate of target lesion revascularization (TLR) was 5 of 23 (22%) in the patients treated with ELCA. It is concluded, ELCA is a safe and efficient debulking technology for treating diffuse in-stent restenosis.  (+info)

Intracoronary ultrasound predictors of adverse outcomes after coronary artery interventions. (8/46)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine the association between qualitative and quantitative lesion characteristics as assessed by intracoronary ultrasound imaging and adverse outcomes after coronary artery interventions. BACKGROUND: Restenosis and other adverse outcomes after coronary artery interventions may be difficult to predict from clinical or angiographic data. Intracoronary ultrasound imaging provides additional data that could prove useful. METHODS: Immediately after successful coronary artery interventions (angiographic residual stenosis < or = 50%), 69 patients underwent intracoronary ultrasound imaging. Images were assessed qualitatively for plaque composition and topography and for dissection. Quantitative data included measurement of minimal lumen diameter, lumen area, plaque area and percent area stenosis at the treatment and adjacent reference sites. Adverse outcome was defined as death, coronary bypass surgery, myocardial infarction or angiographic restenosis. RESULTS: Of the 69 patients, 1 died, 3 had bypass surgery and 1 had a myocardial infarction before planned 6-month repeat catheterization. Two patients were lost to follow-up study. Of the remaining 62 patients, 56 (90%) agreed to follow-up catheterization and 25 (45%) of the 56 had restenosis. Thus, 30 patients had an adverse outcome and 37 had no adverse event. The incidence of dissection detected by ultrasound imaging after an intervention was significantly greater in patients with than in those without a subsequent adverse event (63% vs. 35%, p < 0.05). The severity of dissection also appeared to be related to outcome (p < 0.05). Other qualitative and quantitative variables were not significantly different between the two patient groups. CONCLUSIONS: Dissection, as assessed by intracoronary ultrasound imaging after a coronary artery intervention, can identify patients at increased risk of subsequent adverse events. Additional studies are warranted to explore whether such imaging may allow modification of interventional procedures to improve outcome.  (+info)
