Abstract of the year: RENOVA trial results show stent grafts keep access sites open significantly longer than angioplasty alone NEW ORLEANS, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Highlights Dialysis patients benefit from minimally invasively placed stent grafts, which keep access sites open longer, according to RENOVA trial 12-month results. Stent grafts keep dialysis access sites open 2 1/2 times longer than balloon angioplasty. Nearly 400,000 people undergo dialysis every...

STREAM trial: Treatment with tenecteplase before hospital transfer benefits some A clot-busting therapy may benefit some heart attack patients who cannot have immediate angioplasty, according to research presented today at the American College of Cardiology's 62nd Annual Scientific Session. "Drug therapy before transfer is at least as effective as [angioplasty], and an urgent catheterization was avoided in two-thirds of patients," said Frans Van de Werf, MD, PhD, professor of cardiology...

Study suggests on-site surgery services unnecessary for patient safety in non-emergency angioplasty Non-emergency angioplasty performed at hospitals without on-site cardiac surgery capability is no less safe and effective than angioplasty performed at hospitals with cardiac surgery services, according to research presented today at the American College of Cardiology's 62nd Annual Scientific Session. Emergency surgery has become an increasingly rare event following percutaneous coronary...

The first multicenter study of hybrid revascularization shows that the emerging procedure for treating coronary artery disease has a similar rate of major adverse events in the first year, compared with percutaneous intervention (stenting). Hybrid revascularization is a minimally invasive blend of coronary bypass surgery and stenting. It has been described as a "best of both worlds" strategy for treating multi-vessel coronary artery disease. Surgeons avoid opening the patient's sternum,...

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...
