Drug-Coated Balloons in Infrapopliteal Disease: Much Ado About Nothing

Drug-Coated Balloons in Infrapopliteal Disease: Much Ado About Nothing

The revascularization of tibial arteries in patients with critical lower limb ischemia using drug-coated balloons vs. conventional angioplasty resulted in comparable long-term outcomes in terms of both safety and efficacy. Paclitaxel exposure was not related to a higher risk of amputation or all-cause mortality at 5 years (which is the good news for much questioned drug-coated

Felling Reassured with Paclitaxel Coated Devices in Peripheral Artery Disease

This big analysis shows rapid absorption of paclitaxel coated devices for PCI in femoropopliteal territory, which reassures us about its alleged association to increased mortality. In fact, survival, amputation-free survival and cardiovascular events rate resulted better with paclitaxel coated devices in the treatment of chronic limb ischemia.  This study emphasizes the difference that might exist

Seguridad de los balones con paclitaxel en enfermedad vascular periférica

Safety of Paclitaxel-Coated Balloons in Peripheral Vascular Disease

Everybody keeps wondering whether drug-coated balloons can actually increase mortality. If that is the case, there is an even harder question in need of an answer: what would be the physiopathology for such increase in mortality? As a lukewarm message, the US Food and Drug Administration recommended a special informed consent form when these devices

Drug Coated Balloons vs. Drug Eluting Stents in Primary PCI

There might come the time when we are finally able to leave nothing behind, at least in the context of primary PCI. The REVELATION study, soon to be published in J Am Coll Cardiol Intv, has shown that paclitaxel coated balloons resulted non inferior to drug eluting stents (DES) in terms of FFR (fractional flow

New FDA Updates on Paclitaxel Device Outcomes

A new FDA letter confirms late mortality signal with paclitaxel eluting stents and paclitaxel coated balloons in peripheral territory. Even though this recently published letter confirms data, there are no new recommendations on the use of these devices. After careful consideration of their own analyzis outcomes and a 2-day discussion of an advisory panel especially

Mortality and Paclitaxel Devices, Data Are Aligning

5 years ago, several prospective randomized studies confirmed paclitaxel coated balloons were safe and effective in femoropopliteal territory. However, a recently published meta-analysis of heterogeneous studies including both paclitaxel coated balloons and drug eluting stents has linked these devices to mortality. In addition, higher doses were associated to higher mortality, both at 2 and 5

EuroPCR 2019 | EFFPAC: New Peripheral Paclitaxel Coated Balloons, Efficacy with no Sign of Mortality

Paclitaxel coated balloons in peripheral territory have been under the spotlight for alleged increased mortality, which even though not observed in this study, experts insist, calls for new studies with enough statistical power. Compared against plain balloon angioplasty, paclitaxel coated balloons resulted in improved patency and less revascularization at 24 months in superficial or popliteal

REVELATION: Balones liberadores de droga en infartos con supradesnivel del segmento ST

EuroPCR 2019 | REVELATION: Drug Coated Balloons in ST Elevation MI

Drug coated balloons in the context of ST elevation acute myocardial infarction seem safe and feasible under certain circumstances. This single center study is the kickoff to keep studying the possibility of “leaving nothing behind” after primary PCI. This small randomized study revives drug coated balloons to be used particularly instead of stents in young

Los DES de última generación presentan mejores resultados en puentes venosos que los DES antiguos y BMS

Drug-Eluting Stents vs. Balloons While Paclitaxel Is in the Eye of the Storm

Even after the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an alert on paclitaxel devices in patients with femoropopliteal artery disease, which caused the interruption of a few ongoing studies, reality indicates that the efficacy of these devices has been proven and that they are still used. The increased mortality observed in the meta-analysis that

FDA Alert on Drug-Coated Balloons and Stents in Femoropopliteal Artery Disease

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an alert on the potential long-term risk of paclitaxel-coated balloons and paclitaxel-eluting stents in patients with femoropopliteal artery disease. This agency is evaluating signals of increased long-term deaths among patients with femoral or popliteal artery disease treated with paclitaxel-coated devices in a recent study.   In
