Weighing Transradial and Transfemoral Access for Acute Coronary Syndrome Patients Part 2
Weighing Transradial and Transfemoral Access for Acute Coronary Syndrome Patients Part 2 VIDEO
Making the transition from transfemoral to transradial access may provide longterm benefits for acute coronary syndrome patients, but changing years of training to the newer method also figures to be a longterm project for the cardiac community.
Weighing Transradial and Transfemoral Access for Acute Coronary Syndrome Patients VIDEO
For patients with acute coronary syndrome there has been one longstanding treatment method which doctors have used for many years. In recent years interventional cardiologists have been looking at whether a fresh approach might be best for this patient group.
New Facility Looks to Streamline Training for Medical Testing VIDEO
The field of medical technology is constantly expanding and changing requiring new equipment to be used in a variety of ways. That effort has been brought under one roof at Massachusetts General Hospital thanks in part to the efforts of one generous and appreciative patient.
Preventive Angioplasty: Safe for Most STEMI Patients
Preventive angioplasty may be the next big thing. In a study presented at the American College of Cardiology meeting in San Diego, CA, researchers recommended complete revascularization of constricted arteries in patients who had a STEMI heart attack.
Bivalirudin Trial Shows Less Bleeding
Patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing angioplasty who got the anticoagulant bivalirudin (Angiomax/Medicines Company) had significantly lower rates of bleeding complications and death than controls, according to a Dutch study.
Public Reporting of PCI and its Affect on Patient Care Part 2 VIDEO
The reporting of PCI results is not a common practice for many reasons, and while some states require it of their doctors, there could be both medical and political barriers standing in the way of it becoming a nationwide program.
Public Reporting of PCI and its Affect on Patient Care VIDEO
With New York and Massachusetts leading the way laws requiring public reporting of PCI results were recently expanded to Washington State as well. A recent study looked at the risks and benefits of other states starting similar programs.
DAP Guidelines and Whether Change is Needed VIDEO
The use of dual anti platelet therapy is popular among cardio patients but questions remain of how long that therapy should continue after a cardiac event.
Improving Imaging in Myocardial Diseases VIDEO
As technology improves, so does the ability for doctors to better view their patients from a variety of angles as part of their overall care. This is also true in cardiology when treating patients with myocardial diseases.
