BACKGROUND: Intracranial aneurysms may be difficult for endovascular treatment due to size, fusiform shape, or wide neck. In such patients, intracranial stents are used to support the coils in the aneurysm sac, or they may be used as a sole stenting technique to divert the blood flow without coils. The ...

To describe variations in the shape, orientation, and length of the branches of multi-branched thoracoabdominal stent grafts. The branches were constructed in situ by attaching a covered stent (Fluency Plus Tracheobronchial Stent Graft; Bard Peripheral Vascular, Tempe, Ariz) to each of four caudally-oriented cuffs on custom-made stent grafts. Pre- and ...

The sole stenting technique has emerged as a new tool for the management of intracranial aneurysms. However, several concerns have emerged about the long-term behavior of intracranial stents, particularly their safety and efficacy. We present the first case of an intracranial aneurysm intentionally treated with the sole stenting technique. After ...

Evaluations of stents by MDCT from studies performed at single centers have yielded variable results with a high proportion of unassessable stents. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of 64-MDCT angiography (MDCTA) in identifying in-stent restenosis in a multicenter trial. The Coronary Evaluation Using Multidetector Spiral ...

Image-based computational fluid dynamics provides great promise for evaluation of vascular devices and assessment of surgical procedures. However, many previous studies employ idealized arterial and device models or patient-specific models with a limited number of cases, since the model construction process is tedious and time-consuming. Moreover, in contrast to retrospective ...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary artery stenting without a long vascular sheath has a special significance, particularly for children with low body weight. Using only a short sheath often permits the implantion of a stent of the correct size; moreover, it improves access to peripherally located stenoses. The aim of this paper is ...

Narrowing of the iliac artery is a common presentation of systemic atherosclerosis. With the recent development of invasive techniques, angioplasty and stenting offer excellent results for fixing limb ischemia of aorto-iliac arteries. However, despite novel interventional approaches and constantly increasing experience, complications such as distal embolization, stent migration, acute or ...

An apico-aortic conduit (AAC) is an alternative therapy in patients with aortic valve stenosis and severe concomitant disease. We investigated whether it is feasible to create an apico-aortic conduit off-pump with a newly developed, stent-based coring- and cannulation-device in the animal model. A new self-expandable, stent equipped and hooked prosthesis ...

Since the introduction of the retrograde technique, the success rate of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has increased significantly in patients with suitable anatomy. To our knowledge, retrograde recanalization of a CTO from the abluminal side of a previously placed stent has not been reported. We describe ...

There have been notably higher rates of restenosis with stents used to restore blood flow to many stenosed peripheral arteries compared with their coronary counterparts. The mechanical environment of arteries such as the femoral and popliteal (and the stent fracture that this can cause) has previously been identified as a ...

Chronic constrictive pericarditis can result in extrinsic compression of coronary arteries during diastole. We present one such case wherein the coronary compression and the resultant cardiac ischemia developed late after surgical pericardiectomy, and treatment with intracoronary stenting was unsuccessful. Issues pertaining to management of this rare condition are discussed and ...

Intracoronary undeployed stent embolization occurring during percutaneous coronary intervention is an infrequent complication. Published data indicate that without stent retrieval, the outcome is unfavourable. The present report describes a case in which failure to retrieve an undeployed embolized stent from the mid right coronary artery was managed conservatively with acetylsalicylic ...

Most commonly, coronary artery aneurysms are secondary to atherosclerosis, but cases have been reported in patients who have vasculitis or tissue disorders, and in patients who have undergone interventional procedures. However, over the past few years, an increasing number of cases of coronary artery aneurysms after drug-eluting stent implantation have ...

In the present report, we describe a unique case of very late stent thrombosis with a bare-metal stent that occurred more than a decade after stent implantation. Potential explanations for the late stent thrombosis are non-compliance to aspirin, late acquired malapposition of the stent, progression of atherosclerosis or in-stent restenosis. ...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the role of aortic stent-graft implantation in managing aortobronchial fistula (ABF). METHODS: A search of the Medline, EMBASE, and Cochrane databases for studies reporting on ABF treated with stent-grafts from 1996 to 2008 retrieved 44 articles with data on 82 ABFs. Most (57 ABFs) were published in ...

Coronary stent thrombosis is a rare but life-threatening event after percutaneous revascularization. We report an in-vivo documentation of the pathologic process in the setting of a very late thrombosis within a bare-metal stent, showing eosinophil infiltrates. Interestingly, our case indicates that eosinophil infiltrates might not be a peculiarity of late ...

Current carotid stent designs and their attributes like scaffolding to reduce plaque prolapses and embolization, flexibility, adaptability and conformability to the vessel vary largely. Knowing that differences in behaviour due to stent design exist, especially due to the open cell design (which show high flexibility and therefore adaptability to the ...

In-stent restenosis or occlusion has been frequently reported as a complication after angioplasty and stenting in vertebral arteries. Reopening chronic in-stent occlusion in cervical arteries with endovascular techniques has not been reported. Here we describe a case with stent implantation in the origin of right vertebral artery. The stent was ...

We present findings from a 59-year-old male patient who presented with coronary artery disease and refractory angina. Ten years prior, the patient had been implanted with 5 bare metal stents (BMS); he arrived with non-specific ST-T wave abnormalities. Angiographic data revealed a totally occluded right coronary artery at the level ...

Stents are commonly used for the treatment of occlusive artery diseases in carotid arteries. Today, there is a controversial discussion as to whether duplex sonography (DS) displays blood velocities (BV) that are too high in stented areas. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of stenting on ...

A 5-year-old child with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) was noted to have left pulmonary artery stenosis after Glenn shunt placement. Therefore, a stent was implanted into the left pulmonary artery to relieve stenosis. After redilatation of the pulmonary artery stent, wheezing, fatigue, asymmetric bronchial sound, and desaturation was noted. ...
