Device Effectiveness for Femoropopliteal Artery Disease Treatment: Analysis of K-VIS ELLA Registry

Endovascular treatment of lesions in femoropopliteal territory (FPA) has become the main therapeutic option, seeing as it is less invasive and has faster recovery. It has used different devices, such as conventional bare metal stents (BMS), balloon angioplasty (POBA), and drug coated balloons (DCB), as well as drug eluting stents (DES). However, real world data

Simplified Rapid Intravenous Hydration for the Prevention of Contrast-Induced Nephropathy in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing coronary angiography are at increased risk of developing contrast-associated acute kidney injury (CA-AKI), which is associated with increased mortality. According to current guidelines, the standard treatment for preventing CA-AKI in patients with moderate to severe CKD is long-duration peri-procedural intravenous hydration with saline solution. This standard hydration is

BASIL-2: Revascularization of Infra-Popliteal Territory in Patients with Critical Lower Limb Ischemia

Results of infrapopliteal territory revascularization in critical limb ischemia. Compared against the general population, patients suffering from critical lower limb ischemia (CLI) not only experience seriously limited quality of life, but also face a significant higher risk of death and amputation.  Specifically, the optimal treatment for these patients remains uncertain. This uncertainty was sparked by

EuroPCR 2023 | New Renal Denervation Devices Show Promising Results

The Netrod System study included 205 patients with uncontrolled essential hypertension while taking two drugs (nifedipine and hydrochlorothiazide), who were randomized 2:1 to denervation or sham control. All subjects had undergone renal angiography before randomization. Renal denervation was done using the Setrod System device. Mean patient age was 50 years old, and 16% of subjects were female.

EuroPCR 2023 | More Evidence in Favor of Renal Denervation

This study included 219 patients with uncontrolled essential hypertension who had received at least two antihypertensive drugs. All of them underwent a renal angiography and were randomized to the renal denervation group or the control group. Denervation was performed using the SyMapCath I catheter and the SYMPIONEER S1 generator/stimulator. Mean patient age was 45 years old, and

Drug Coated Balloons: Link between Femoropopliteal Lesion Calcification Grade and Clinical Outcomes

At present, the use of drug coated balloons (DCB) in femoropopliteal territory is more and more frequent. However, when it comes to treating moderate to severe calcification, the evidence is still limited.   Using a peripheral artery calcification scoring system (PACSS) has been associated to clinical outcomes after DCB angioplasty for femoropopliteal lesions. The system categorizes
