TCT 2019 | MODEL U-SES: More Devices for High Risk of Bleeding and Short DAPT

Courtesy of SBHCI. This study tested the safety of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after only three months of bioresorbable polymer sirolimus DES implantation (Ultimaster). Secondary end point was following with P2Y12 inhibitor monotherapy after the first 3 months compared with aspirin.  It included 1695 patients treated with sirolimus eluting Ultimaster receiving 3-month DAPT. After the

TCT 2019 | EVOLVE Short DAPT: Only 3-month DATP in High Risk Bleeding

Courtesy of the SBHCI. This study used the thin strut everolimus eluting stent with ultrathin abluminal bioresorbable polymer coating chromium platinum stent, basically the Synergy stent. Drug release and polymer degradation within four months facilitate endothelization and would allow a shorter DAPT. Presented during the scientific sessions of TCT 2019, this study included 2009 high

TCT 2019 | Onyx ONE: Durable Polymer vs. Polymer-Free Stent with Only One Month of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy

Courtesy of the SBHCI. This is the first randomized study comparing a durable-polymer drug-eluting stent (zotarolimus-eluting stent Onyx) and a polymer-free drug-eluting stent (biolimus-A9-coated stent BioFreedom), with only one month of dual antiplatelet therapy in patients at high risk for bleeding. Onyx ONE was a study conducted at 84 sites that randomized 1:1 2000 total patients at

Drug eluting Stents vs. Drug Coated Balloons for In-Stent Restenosis

The rationale behind the decision to not add another layer of metal to the artery sounded attractive and this was what paved the way for drug coated balloons as an alternative strategy to treat in-stent restenosis. “We’ve already got a stent in place, we only have to dilate and leave the drug” is what we
