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

Ultrathin Stents Shown Safe and Effective in Real World Patients

Ultrathin drug eluting stents (60 µm) had been shown beneficial vs. thin-strut stents in terms of target lesion failure (TLF) at 2, 3 and 5 years in randomized studies, but they had not been yet assessed in “real world” patients.  The BIOFLOW VII is a prospective, multicenter study including 556 “real world”patients with a total

PICCOLETO-II: Drug-Coated Balloons in Small Vessels

Use of drug-coated balloons vs. drug-eluting stents in small caliber vessels. The constant advancements in coronary device technology have significantly reduced complication rates (such as that of restenosis). However, there are gaps where a high number of undesirable events prevail, such as small vessel disease (SVD), for which, in previous studies up, the rate of

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.

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

BIODEGRADE: Does Stent Design Affect Long-Term Clinical Results?

Recent studies have shown that drug-eluting stents with biodegradable polymer and ultrathin struts are safe and effective, including low rates of stent thrombosis. This is why researchers conducted the BIODEGRADE (Biomatrix and Orsiro Drug-Eluting Stents in Angiographic Result in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease) study, which showed the non-inferiority at 18 months of ultrathin biodegradable polymer

What Is the Best Strategy for Moderately Complex Femoropopliteal Lesions?

At present, PCI is the preferred treatment for femoropopliteal lesions and drug coated balloons (DCB) have shown good performance. However, they have not yet been shown superior to bare-metal stents (BMS).  This study compared randomized trials IN.PACT SFA I/II and IN.PACT JAPAN including 288 patients vs. the prospective Complete SE and DURABILITY II with 483

ELUVIA: DES en territorio femoropoplíteo con lesiones complejas

IN.PACT Study | Should We Start Using DCBs More Frequently in Cases of Femoropopliteal Disease?

With the new devices (drug-eluting balloons [DEB], drug-eluting stents [DES], and atherotomes) percutaneous treatment is becoming the first line of approach for femoropopliteal disease, especially when dealing with not very long total occlusions. Randomized studies and registries on the use of drug-coated balloons (DCB) in femoropopliteal disease are currently available, but their evolution beyond 2

Left Main Coronary Artery PCI Using State-of-the-Art Zotarolimus-Eluting Stents

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to the left main coronary artery (LMCA) with drug-eluting stent implantation is currently a major challenge due to the size of the vessel, the compromise of a bifurcation lesion in important branches, and the potential risk of complications. Available information on LMCA PCI comes from studies where DES stents were implanted
