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 ...

N2 - From January 1979 to March 1984, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) was used to treat 148 limbs of 135 Mayo Clinic patients with occlusive arterial disease of the lower extremities. The procedure was technically successful in more than 95% of the attempts. The outcome was clinical improvement in 89 limbs and no improvement in 40 limbs; in 19 limbs, PTA was technically successful but the patient was dismissed from the hospital and lost to follow-up before the extent of improvement could be determined. Mean ankle/brachial pressure indices increased after PTA in those with clinical improvement but not in those without improvement. Clinical improvement was less likely to follow PTA in patients with advanced age, ...
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.
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 ...

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 ...

Results NIA and SI of BA with angioplasty were significantly decreased compared with angioplasty group (p,0.001). Serum VEGF level significantly increased 7 days after balloon injury both in angioplasty group and BA group. The increase range in BA with angioplasty group was higher than that of the angioplasty group (p,0.01). The serum VEGF level 7 days after injury had linearly negative correlation with SI. In the second experiment, arterial neointima hyperplasia reached delsummit at 28 days in the angioplasty group and 14 days in the BA with angioplasty group. Neointimal and media area of BA with angioplasty at different times (14th, 28th, 45thday) were significantly decreased compared with angioplasty group (p,0.001). The rate of PCNA positive cell increased statistically in BA with angioplasty group than in angioplasty group at 14th day (p,0.01).

The variable distention angioplasty balloon assembly, for insertion into a blood vessel, comprises an inner elongated, inflatable balloon having a distal portion, a proximal portion and an intermediate portion therebetween and defining therein a first chamber. The inner balloon has a first Youngs modulus. The outer elongated, inflatable balloon has a distal portion, a proximal portion and an intermediate portion therebetween positioned around the inner balloon and defines between the balloons a second chamber. The outer balloon has a second Youngs modulus. The inner balloon is substantially enclosed by the outer balloon, and the first Youngs modulus of the inner balloon is less than the second Youngs modulus of the outer balloon. The first chamber of the inner balloon and the second chamber of the outer balloon define a variable dilation structure for dilating an anatomical stricture. The dilation structure with variable characteristics has a first diameter and pressure characteristic curve defined

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. ...

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.. ...

The data confirmed the indications from previous study results at one, two and three years in terms of:. Primary patency: Patients treated with Zilver PTX demonstrated 75% primary patency in the superficial femoral artery. This compares to 57.9% patency for patients with provisional bare metal stent placement in the study.. Restenosis reduction: Four-year restenosis was reduced by 41% with the paclitaxel coating in the head-to-head comparison of provisional paclitaxel-eluting stent placement vs. bare metal stent placement.. 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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
