Outcomes of the Use of Drug Coated Balloons in the Treatment of De Novo Coronary Lesions

Drug coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty offers a novel strategy for treating coronary artery disease. Studies assessing this strategy have shown clinical outcomes comparable to drug-eluting stents’ (DES) in patients with in-stent restenosis and de novo disease in small vessels. However, evidence for the use of DCB in large coronary vessels is limited. This observational, retrospective study DCB

Drug-Coated Balloons (DCB): Sirolimus vs. Paclitaxel in De Novo Lesions in Small Vessels

The use of drug-coated balloons (DCB) offers the advantage of avoiding permanent stent implants, thus reducing the incidence of in-stent restenosis (ISR), neoatherosclerosis, and late in-stent thrombosis. Additionally, the use of DCB reduces the duration of dual antiplatelet therapy. Current evidence supports the use of DCB for ISR treatment (Class I) compared with drug-eluting stents
