The Selectra system appears to be very promising in terms of balancing flexibility and firmness, which will allow easy access to the coronary sinus
interventions are being used with an increasing frequency in cardiology practice.
Comparison of coronary sinus
morphology in patients with and without atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia by intracardiac echocardiography.
Both of these patients had previous attempts to implant cardiac resynchronization therapy that failed, due to the challenges and limitations of implanting left heart leads through the coronary sinus
For all ten patients, we needed less than fifteen minutes from femoral vein puncture to safe insertion of the PICSO([R]) catheter into the coronary sinus
," said Prof.
The PICSO([R]) citation appears in a paper, "Recent Advances and Patents on Coronary Sinus
Perfusion Devices for Treatment of Heart Disease",published in the current issue of Recent Patents on Biomedical Engineeringandauthored by Kiyotaka Fukamachi, M.
A Technique for Aortic Valve Replacement on the Beating Heart with Continuous Retrograde Coronary Sinus
Perfusion With Warm Oxygenated Blood.
Four main routes of stem cell delivery methods have been reported in cardiac stem cell therapy studies: antegrade intracoronary infusion, direct endocardial injection, retrograde coronary sinus
infusion and transepicardial injection (1-4).
VIENNA, Austria -- Miracor Medical Systems GmbH announced today the successful first-in-man clinical outcome for its PICSO([R]) (Pressure-controlled Intermittent Coronary Sinus
Occlusion) System, designed to improve acute coronary syndrome (ACS) revascularization following primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Several studies reported different delivery methods including transepicardial, transendocardial, intracoronary or retrograde coronary sinus
We report a middle aged patient who presented with symptomatic complete heart block, in whom a large non coronary sinus
of valsalva aneurysm was detected incidentally during routine echocardiography and was considered the unusual cause of heart block in that patient.
SOV aneurysm usually originates from the right coronary sinus
(70%-90%), followed by the noncoronary sinus (10%-25%) (Fig.
All unexpired lots of the Rapid Exchange (RX), Over-the-Wire (OTW), and Coronary Sinus
(CS) versions of the product have been recalled due to the potential for excess material to be present within the inner lumen of the distal catheter tip.
The right coronary artery (RCA) arises from the anterior coronary sinus
and the left coronary artery (LCA) from the left posterior aortic sinus.
Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is an uncommon complication of bicuspid aortic valve and more so those arising from the left coronary sinus
are the rarest.
