ELUVIA: DES en territorio femoropoplíteo con lesiones complejas

The Long Marathon of Ultrathin vs. 2nd Generation Thin-Strut DES

After 2.5 years of non-stop racing, ultrathin-strut drug-eluting stents (DES) reached the finish line before 2nd generation thin-strut DES. The advantage was in terms of clinically justified lesion revascularization, while rates of infarction, stent thrombosis, cardiac death, and all-cause death were similar. After failure at trying to create new generations of DES based on drugs

Novel DES Technology Promises to Become the Next DES Generation

The novel technology of drug-eluting stent Supreme was designed to synchronize antiproliferative drug release and leave a base behind to promote healing. Accelerated endothelial healing after antiproliferative drug release may limit the long-term inflammatory response. This multicenter, single-blind study included 1600 patients who were randomized 2:1 to receive drug-eluting stent Supreme vs. a classic permanent-polymer everolimus-eluting

EuroPCR 2021 | CASTLE: Orsiro vs Xience Guided by Intravascular Imaging

According to the CASTLE trial, the Orsino stent—a biodegradable, ultrathin, sirolimus-eluting stent—provides the same results at 12 months as Xience in angioplasty guided by intravascular imaging. This research was presented at the virtual EuroPCR 2021 Congress. Previous studies (BIOSTEMI and BIOFLOW V) showed that Orsiro was superior to Xience in reducing target-lesion revascularization. However, the reason behind this

EuroPCR 2021 | Ultrathin Struts Consolidate as Next DES Development

According to this recent meta-analysis of randomized studies, ultrathin strut devices are associated with lower rates of target vessel failure vs. 2nd generation drug eluting stents (DES). This advantage was driven by fewer clinically justified reinterventions.  This study was published in the European Heart Journal and simultaneously presented at EuroPCR 2021 Scientific Sessions. Ultrathin struts

EuroPCR 2021 | FUTURE II: Bioresorbable Scaffolds Reloaded

A new sirolimus-eluting bioresorbable scaffold with far thinner struts resulted non inferior to the Xience as to the end point of angiographic in-segment late loss (LL) powered for noninferiority testing. Even though this is a small study with angiographic end points, it might be the first step towards the return of bioresorbable scaffolds.  Read also:

Xience Receives CE Mark for Short and Ultrashort DAPT Schemes

Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) one month after angioplasty with Xience stent was approved in Europe for patients with high risk of bleeding.   The CE Mark approval comes after studies Xience 28 and Xience 90 are published. Immediately after authorization, Abbot was fast to announce what they consider to be the shortest approved scheme with the most

Biodegradable Polymer Myth Also Debunked for ACSs

During TCT 2020 a preview of the results of the comparison of drug-eluting stents (DES) with biodegradable-polymer vs. durable-polymer in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) was presented. The fine print and the final paper for HOST-REDUCE-POLYTECH-ACS are now published, and they lower the expectations set on biodegradable polymers. In patients with ACS undergoing angioplasty, biodegradable-polymer

Last Bastion of Bare Metal Stents Finally Falls

Multiple studies have shown the safety and efficacy of drug eluting stents (DES) in patients with high risk of bleeding. Only one last bastion of bare metal stents (BMS) was left standing: vein grafts.  With controversial evidence and different physiopathology, many still argued against DES in saphenous vein grafts.  This multicenter study randomized patients with
