The goal of the study is to evaluate long term durability and hemodynamic effect of implanted stents in the aortic arch and in pulmonary artery branches.

Durability of Implanted Intravascular Stents
Hemodynamic Effect of Implanted Intravascular Stents

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Evaluation of Implanted Aortic Arch and Branch Pulmonary Artery Stents Durability and Function

Further study details as provided by Rambam Health Care Campus:

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: July 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2012
Detailed Description:

Patients who underwent trans-catheter implantation of balloon expanded stents in the aortic arch and in branch pulmonary arteries will be evaluated by physical examination with blood pressure values measurement of upper and lower limbs.

Echo-Doppler cardiography will be performed for flow velocity analysis. Zoomed fluoroscopy will be performed and recorded in two orthogonal views to evaluate stent integrity or stent fracture.

It is our intention to include 20 patients in this study from our follow-up clinic.


Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 80 Years   (Child, Adult, Senior)
