  • arterial
  • Tourniquet equivalents In the same way that external compression tourniquets reduce or eliminate arterial blood flow, aortic cross clamping has the same effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • Schaper summarizes the status-2009 knowledge of coronary collateral transformation in a recent review: "Following an arterial occlusion outward remodeling of pre-existent inter-connecting arterioles occurs by proliferation of vascular smooth muscle and endothelial cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • arch
  • Features that make stent placement more difficult include significant aortic arch tortuosity, thrombus containing lesions, occluded carotid artery, heavily calcified vessels, symptomatic patients and very tortuous and twisting vessels. (wikipedia.org)
  • induce
  • Therefore, the aim of this study was to test the hypothesis whether an intravenous (i.v.) formulation of sodium sulfide (Na 2 S) would induce neuroprotective effects during porcine aortic balloon occlusion-induced spinal cord I/R injury using a human-like porcine model of ubiquitous arteriosclerosis.

  • myocardial
  • After balloon removal there is also a risk of 'embolic shower' from micro clots that have formed on the surface of the balloon, and can lead to peripheral thrombosis, myocardial ischemia, hemodynamic decompensation, and late pseudoaneurysm. (wikipedia.org)
  • dilation
  • A number of other steps may or may not be performed, including the use of a cerebral protection device, pre- or post-stent balloon dilation and cerebral angiography. (wikipedia.org)
  • mitral
  • If one of the heart valves is affected, this may cause dysfunction, such as mitral regurgitation in the case of left-sided coronary occlusion that disrupts the blood supply of the papillary muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • Mechanical failure of the balloon itself is also a risk which entails vascular surgery to remove under that circumstance. (wikipedia.org)
  • The device and the balloons were then developed for commercial use between 1967 and 1969 heart surgery by William Rassman, M.D. at Cornell Medical Center and were manufactured by Datascope Corporation in 1969. (wikipedia.org)
  • occlude
  • The balloon (102) is preferably filled with a partitioned resilient material (104) to permit varying diameters of the balloon and occlude body passageways having varying diameters and curvatures. (google.de)
  • This CO2 balloon system was tested on model aortas with inline fluid flow and pressure monitoring to determine the maximum pressure the balloons could occlude. (uwo.ca)
  • method
  • 8. The method as specified in claim 1 wherein said balloon further comprises a flexible outer shell disposed about said resilient material. (google.de)
  • wall
  • monocytes and polycytes migrate to the vascular wall, which has, as a result of the occlusion, become permeable to the blood's cellular components. (wikipedia.org)
