TAVI improves heart function and exercise capacity German researchers report success with transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in patients with low-flow, low-gradient aortic stenosis–a special form of aortic stenosis that is difficult to treat. Results published in the April issue of Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, the peer-reviewed journal of the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), show that while all-cause mortality was high...

Sleep deprivation does not disturb interventionist performance A single-center study found that percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures performed during the middle of the night do not adversely affect the safety and effectiveness of procedures performed the next day by the same operator. Findings now available in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, a journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions...

Female gender not an independent predictor of mortality post-PCI New research shows that women undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), also known as angioplasty, exhibit more co-morbidities and cardiovascular risk factors than men. Risk-adjusted analyses have now indicated that, in the contemporary era, gender is not an independent mortality predictor following PCI according to the study now available in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, a journal published by...

New research shows that elevated levels of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) or I (cTnI) in patients who had angioplasty indicate a higher risk of all-cause mortality and long-term adverse events such as heart attack. Routine monitoring of these protein levels following nonemergent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) could improve long-term outcomes for these patients. Details of the analysis are available online in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, a peer-reviewed journal of The...

(Ivanhoe Newswire)"”Researchers say doctors should consider using catheterization as a treatment tool for children with heart defects. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), at least one-half million children in the U.S. suffer from some form of cardiac problem. Researchers now say catheterization should be considered as an option for some of these pediatric patients. A catheter is a flexible tube inserted through a narrow opening into a blood vessel. It can be used to...

Doctors should consider using catheterization as a treatment tool in addition to its established role in diagnosing children with heart defects, according to a new American Heart Association scientific statement. A catheter is a thin flexible tube inserted into a blood vessel and used in procedures such as angiography, in which physicians use the catheter to inject dye into the arteries near the heart to illuminate the vessels via X-ray technology. It can also open a valve, enlarge a narrow...

Coronary Angiography
2013-07-29 11:05:01

A coronary angiography, also known as a coronary catheterization, is a procedure that gives both visual and tactical access to coronary circulation and blood filled chambers of the heart for both diagnostic and interventional purposes. It is one of many diagnostic tests used in cardiology. More specifically, coronary catheterization recognizes occlusion, stenosis, thrombosis or aneurismal enlargement of the walls of the coronary arteries; heart chamber size; heart muscle contraction...

  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.'
