BackgroundIn the reverse CART technique, a catheter and a wire are positioned on opposite sides of the coronary occlusion. Through different manipulation of the catheter and the wire, the wire is, ultimately, aligned with the tip of the antegrade catheter, crosses the occluded coronary segment, and gets “externalized” converting a CTO in a regular PCI. Unfortunately, it is not always straightforward to cross the retrograde wire into the antegrade catheter tip to externalize the retrograde wire as a mean to convert the re-CART in a conventional PCI.New Device FeaturesThe new de...
MULTI-FUNCTIONAL LINKING AGENT FOR IMAGING AND THERAPY Imaging technologies are uniquely positioned to enhance how localized and metastatic tumors are treated. In cases where surgery is indicated, a novel class of imaging agents which combine radioactive of fluorescent tags can be used to improve tumor visualization in real-time. When cancer has spread throughout the body, a cytotoxic compound can be combined with radioactive label to develop a “theranostic” method to see and treat disease. Tumor-specificity is critical to the success of these approaches and investigators at T...
