... include recent surgery, history of intracranial hemorrhage, thrombocytopenia, recent stroke, uncontrolled hypertension, or arterial puncture at a noncompressible site. The presence of these factors would favor transfer for PCI. 5 A 23-year-old man presents with "neck pounding" that occurs without...

.... There is no evidence of chamber enlargement, hypertrophy, or ischemia. This is a normal ECG. Interpret this ECG. What ECG findings would concern you during a preoperative evaluation? The preoperative ECG should first be assessed for any unstable cardiac conditions that would preclude elective surgery...

... regarding the role of FDG PET/CT for nonacute or suspected lower graft infection, 76 patients (a total of 96 prosthetic grafts) who did not require urgent surgery were enrolled. Patients with fulminant sepsis, anastomotic abscess, bleeding or prosthesoenteric fistula were excluded. The results showed...

... cells circulating in blood may contribute to the arterial remodeling that occurs after angioplasty and after bypass graft surgery. 58 Normal endothelium inhibits vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. 52 The specific function of vascular smooth muscle cells in atherosclerosis is unclear...

... Tissue-engineered vascular grafts blood vessels of small caliber are actively being investigated. 205–207 Vascular cells have been applied onto tubular resorbable polymer scaffolds and matured in vitro in a bioreactor prior to in vivo implantation. 208 Exposure to pulsatile physical...

... FIGURE 5-34 Vascular graft healing. (A) Schematic diagram of pannus formation, the major mode of graft healing with currently available vascular grafts. Smooth muscle cells migrate from the media to the intima of the adjacent artery and extend over and proliferate on the graft surface...

... from the ventricle, the compliance of the vascular system and kinetic energy imparted must also be considered: the impedance of the vascular system (commonly, but less accurately referred to as aortic impedance). Compliance reflects the capacity of the vascular system to accept the volume of ejected...

.... Anticoagulation is useful to prevent thrombus extension, while thrombolytic therapy or surgery can restore perfusion. In other studies, reteplase appears to be as equally effective as t-PA or urokinase with comparable recanalization rates and clinical outcomes and bleeding complications. 388 , 389...
