Treatment of Recurrent In-Stent Restenosis with Drug-Eluting Stents: 10-Year Outcomes

Treatment of Recurrent In-Stent Restenosis with Drug-Eluting Stents: 10-Year Outcomes

In-stent restenosis (ISR) remains the main limitation in the percutaneous treatment of coronary artery disease, with a prevalence between 5% and 10% after implantation of latest-generation drug-eluting stents (DES). Therapeutic recommendations for it include the implantation of a new DES and the use of drug-coated balloons (DCB). The rate of recurrent ISR ranges from 10%

AGENT-IDE: Drug Coated Balloons for Instent Restenosis

Drug eluting stents (DES) have improved considerably over the years, reducing the initial indices of instent restenosis (ISR) by roughly 5-10% a year in USA. However, DES failure might lead to neointimal hyperplasia and neoatherosclerosis, which increases the chance of developing chronic and acute coronary syndromes.  Drug coated balloons (DCB), which administer anti-proliferative agents with

Recurrent Revascularization at 10 Years after Percutaneous Treatment of DES In-Stent Restenosis

In stent restenosis (ISR) continues to be the main limitation to the percutaneous treatment of coronary artery disease, with 5 to 10% prevalence after new generation DES stenting. Guideline recommendations for this intervention include new DES stenting and the use of drug coated balloons (DCB). Recurrent ISR stenting rate ranges between 10 and 40%, and

TCT 2023 | ISAR-DESIRE 3: 10-Year Results

In-stent restenosis (ISR) remains the primary limitation of percutaneous treatment for coronary artery disease. The strategy to address this limitation involves the use of drug-eluting stents (DES) or drug-coated balloons (DCB), both of which have proven to be effective and safe therapeutic alternatives. Despite current recommendations, treating ISR continues to be a challenge, and clinical

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

Comparative Study of Two Drug Coated Balloons: Angiographic and Clinical Outcomes

The incidence of in-stent restenosis (ISR) requiring repeat revascularization ranges between 5% and 10% of PCI patients receiving new generation drug eluting stents (DES). This is why the current European guidelines on myocardial revascularization recommend treating ISR with drug coated balloons (DCB) with class I recommendation, level of evidence A. DCB are mostly coated with

ISAR Score: Can We Predict the Need for Repeat PCI in DES Restenosis?

Score to predict the risk of repeat PCI in DES restenosis. With the use of drug eluting stents (DES) instent restenosis (ISR) has seen a significant reduction vs. bare metal stents (BMS) restenosis.  The main cause of DES failure is ISR. This entity is difficult to manage because of its high recurrence and reintervention risk.

Arterial Patency in Femoropopliteal Disease with Drug-Eluting Balloons

Follow-up of drug-coated balloon angioplasty in femoropopliteal disease in a real-world population. Using drug-releasing devices has decreased the rate of restenosis in obstructive femoropopliteal lesions compared with conventional balloons or conventional stents (bare-nitinol stent, BNS). Both in the placement of BNS and of drug-eluting stents (DES) there is a mechanical risk of stent fracture or

Should We Use Drug Coated Balloons in Patients with Multivessel Disease?

Recent studies have shown that a drug coated balloons (DCB) based approach resulted non inferior when compared against drug eluting stents (DES) only approach in patients with instent restenosis and de novo lesions in small vessel disease. So far, two international consensuses have reported the use of DCB is feasible and safe to treat native

Stent Revascularization in Femoropopliteal Disease: An Analysis of Clustered Randomized Trials

A study compared pooled data of claudication and critical ischemia patients treated with stenting vs. by-pass surgery in femoropopliteal disease. The main objective of revascularization in femoropopliteal disease is to improve the quality of life and functional capacity of claudication patients who did not respond to medical treatment, and to save the affected limb in
