revascularization

(re'vas?kyu-la-ri-za'shon) [ re- + vascularization]
Restoration of blood flow to an organ. This may be done surgically or by removing or dissolving thrombi occluding arteries, esp. coronary or renal arteries.

cerebral revascularization

The surgical restoration of blood flow to the brain, e.g., with an operation to bypass a blockage in the carotid or cerebral arteries.

hybrid coronary artery revascularization

An invasive treatment for multivessel coronary artery disease in which the patient undergoes both minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass of the left anterior descending artery and stent placement into the right coronary artery or the circumflex artery.

percutaneous myocardial revascularization

Transmyocardial revascularization.

transmyocardial revascularization

Abbreviation: TMR
The use of a laser to bore tiny channels directly through the wall of the heart in an attempt to bring oxygen-rich blood from the left ventricular cavity to areas where the heart muscle is oxygen-deprived, or ischemic. TMR is an alternative to coronary bypass surgery or angioplasty, esp. in patients with complex plaques that would be difficult to reach with standard interventions or in patients who have already undergone many other procedures without effect.
Synonym: percutaneous myocardial revascularization
