Disease relevance of Angioscopy


High impact information on Angioscopy

  • In conclusion, intraoperative angioscopy provides visual assessment of luminal patency and anastomotic anatomy [6].
  • Changes in coronary plaque color and morphology by lipid-lowering therapy with atorvastatin: serial evaluation by coronary angioscopy [7].
  • OBJECTIVES: Changes in coronary plaque color and morphology by statin therapy were evaluated using coronary angioscopy [7].
  • Six patients suspected of having acute PE, 6 suspected of having chronic PE, and 4 with PPH diagnosed by pulmonary biopsy underwent percutaneous pulmonary angioscopy [8].
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) gas has proved to be a safe intraarterial contrast agent, and it may have advantages over saline solution as an infusion medium for angioscopy [9].

Associations of Angioscopy with chemical compounds


Gene context of Angioscopy

  • Angioscopy of the inferior vena cava: preliminary observations in cases with involvement by neoplasm. Work in progress [15].
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: adequacy of CEA was assessed intraoperatively by angiography in 1004 (77%), by angioscopy in 299 (22%), and by duplex scan in two patients (1%) [16].
  • Further insights into the mechanisms of action of the TEC were made from studies using percutaneous angioscopy and intravascular ultrasound [17].
  • Evaluation of the feasibility and utility of angioscopy in the hemodynamic correction (French acronyms is CHIVA) of primary varicose veins disease [18].
  • Angioscopy allows their correction peri-operatively and has the potential to reduce peri-operative stroke [19].
