Incidence and Predictors of reCurrent Restenosis After Drug-coated Balloon Angioplasty for Restenosis of a drUg-eluting Stent: The ICARUS Cooperation

Conclusions In the largest cohort to date of individuals with angiographic surveillance after DCB angioplasty for DES restenosis, we demonstrated that recurrent restenosis occurs in approximately 1 out of 5 patients. Predictors of recurrent restenosis are increased lesion length and small vessel size.

A 40-something male presents to the stabilization room for evaluation following head on motor vehicle collision (MVC).  Pt was reported restrained driver, hit at city speeds,  with + airbag deployment.The MVC was unquestionably caused by the other car, not by this driver.The patient complained to EMS of chest pain and a prehospital EKG en route was concerning for STEMI.The patient was at all times hemodynamically stable, without evidence of any profuse bleeding.He had an ECG recorded on arrival to the ED:Anterior and Inferior STEMI with diffuse hyperacute T-waves. This ECG really can't be anything else. ...

CONCLUSION: The Arch V SUPERA-LUX study is the first trial to evaluate whether SUPERA stent implantation and drug-coated balloon use can provide superior protection against restenosis compared to traditional angioplasty, bare metal stents and stent grafts in recurrent cephalic arch stenosis. Initial pilot results are encouraging but longer follow-up is required to truly test this technique. TRIAL REGISTRATION: This study is registered on ClinicalTrials.gov NCT03891693.

An 80-year-old woman developed a recurrent critical limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI) of the right lower limb after a popliteal artery (PA) recanalization with retrograde puncture of the peroneal artery (PR). The angiography showed the PA restenosis and an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) at the previous peroneal retrograde access site. After the PA angioplasty, the AVF was identified through selective contrast injections in multiple projections. A coronary balloon-expandable covered stent was deployed at the AVF site with complete resolution of the AVF.

AbstractPaclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) treatment guided by fractional flow reserve (FFR) is safe and effective for de novo coronary lesions. It is unknown whether the instantaneous wave-free ratio (iFR), an alternative measure that does not require the administration of adenosine, will offer benefits similar to those of FFR in de novo lesion treatment with PCB. Baseline, post-balloon and 9-month angiographical parameters were obtained from 116 lesions of 104 patients. The cutoff value of iFR after balloon angioplasty used to define functionally nonsignificant residual stenotic lesions was 0.86 and they were subdivided int...

This study compared 9-month angiographic and physiologic results in patients with high bleeding risk and de novo coronary lesions treated with either paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) or bare-metal stent (BMS). Patients and methods A total of 40 patients (40 lesions) with high bleeding risk who underwent successful balloon angioplasty with fractional flow reserve (FFR) after balloon angioplasty more than 0.80 were randomized 1: 1 to treatment with PCB versus BMS. Dual antiplatelet therapy was limited to 1 month after the procedure. Results Baseline clinical and lesional characteristics were well balanced between the tw...
