This pamphlet is a French translation of "Angioplasty of the Legs (Balloon Procedure)" pamphlet 1296. Angioplasty of the legs is done to open blocked arteries in the leg. It may be done to delay or stop you from having bypass surgery (surgery to help blood get around a blockage). This pamphlet explains: when angioplasty is done, steps of the procedure, what a stent is, risks, how to prepare for surgery and what recovery will be like after surgery.

Abstract
This book provides a balanced presentation of the fundamental principles of cardiovascular biomechanics research, as well as its valuable clinical applications. Pursuing an integrated approach at the interface of the life sciences, physics and engineering, it also includes extensive images to explain the concepts discussed. Cardiovascular biomechanics encompasses the relationship between the mechanics of the cardiovascular system and biological function in health and disease, and it is increasingly recognised that normal function and diseases involve a complex interplay between biology and mechanical forces. With a focus on explaining the underlying principles, this book examines the physiology and mechanics of circulation, mechanobiology and the biomechanics of different components of the cardiovascular system, in-vivo techniques, in-vitro techniques, and the medical applications of this research. Written for undergraduate and postgraduate students and including sample problems at the end of each chapter, this interdisciplinary text provides an essential introduction to the topic. It is also an ideal reference text for researchers and clinical practitioners, and will benefit a wide range of students and researchers including engineers, physicists, biologists and clinicians who are interested in the area of cardiovascular biomechanics.

Your varicose veins have been injected with a special medication during a treatment called sclerotherapy. This medication causes a blockage in your varicose veins. This forces the blood to go around the blockage and travel through nearby healthier veins, increasing blood flow in your legs. This pamphlet gives specific directions to prevent blood clots from forming in your healthy veins. Mild side effects and a list of symptoms that require immediate medical attention are provided.

However, for people who are too ill or who have other medical problems, your health care team may recommend the TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve intervention) procedure instead.

However, for people who are too ill or who have other medical problems, your health care team may recommend the TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve intervention) procedure instead. During a TAVI procedure, an aortic valve is implanted through a catheter (flexible tube). This pamphlet explains getting ready for admission to the hospital, getting ready for your stay in the hospital, preparing ahead for going home, what to expect on the day of your procedure and during and after the TAVI, getting ready for discharge, and going home.

Vous apprendrez comment vous préparer pour l’implantation de l’appareil. Les soins que vous recevrez durant les premières 24 heures suivant la chirurgie y sont décrits, de même que les activités à éviter au cours des six à huit semaines qui suivront. Vous devrez porter un bracelet MedicAlert®. Les mesures pertinentes à prendre si vous recevez un choc sont précisées, de même que les soins se rattachant à l’incision et les signes d’infection. Il est aussi question de l’utilisation des appareils électriques. Appelez le 911 si vous ressentez les symptômes suivants : impression d’évanouissement imminent, étourdissements, palpitations ou battements de cœur très rapides.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet, 0241, "Living with your implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)". This device finds and corrects dangerously fast heart rates that start in the bottom part of the heart. Topics include: how your heart beats, common symptoms, what an ICD is and how it works, and different treatment types. You will learn how to get ready to have the device inserted. Your care during the first 24 hours after surgery is described as well as activities to avoid in the next 6-8 weeks. You will need to have a MedicAlert® bracelet. The appropriate action to take if you ever receive a shock is given. Care of your incision and signs of an infection are listed. The use of electrical equipment is discussed. Call 911 if you have any of the following symptoms: feeling faint, dizziness, heart fluttering, or heart racing.
