Boston Scientific ’s drug-coated balloon succeeds in femoropopliteal segment at one year

Data from Boston Scientific‘s (NYSE:BSX) Ranger SFA trial showed that treatment with its drug-coated balloon succeeded in the femoropopliteal segment after one year and resulted in greater rates of patency, with fewer interventions, compared to standard balloon angioplasty. The results, which were published this month in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions, demonstrated that both groups of patients – those treated with Boston Scientific’s Ranger DCB and those treated with standard balloon angioplasty – experienced similar quality-of-life improvements over the course of 12 months.

Purpose of review Pulmonary hypertension in sarcoidosis is a well known entity. Sarcoidosis-associated pulmonary hypertension (SAPH) incurs substantial morbidity and mortality. This review examines recent literatures published on epidemiology, prognosis and therapeutic management in SAPH. Recent findings Several registries have been published between 2017 and 2020. The consensus conclusion – SAPH is a harbinger for poor prognosis. Several factors were noted for predicting adverse outcome in SAPH like reduced 6-min walk distance and diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide. Given its adverse outcome, experts have n...

Purpose of review The present review provides an update on treatment of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH), a rare form of pulmonary hypertension characterized by precapillary pulmonary hemodynamic parameters with chronic thrombotic occlusion of the pulmonary vasculature. Recent findings Pulmonary thromboendarectomy (PTE) remains the recommended treatment for patients with surgically accessible disease. Recent data suggest that patients preoperatively bridged with medical therapy may have improved outcomes but further research is needed. Riociguat improves hemodynamics, right ventricular function, q...

Authors: Al Balushi A, Oliveira C, Patsalides A Abstract A 47-year-old live kidney-donor woman presented with headaches and blurred vision. Neuro-ophthalmological examination demonstrated papilledema and right eye inferior nasal defect. Brain MRV showed no sinus thrombosis but solitary right venous sinus draining the torcular Herophili to right jugular bulb. Lumbar puncture revealed elevated CSF opening pressure of 40 cm H2O with normal composition. She was diagnosed with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). She did not tolerate medical management and declined CSF diversion surgery. Cerebral angiograp...

A 27-year-old male patient suffering from dizziness and right amaurosis was diagnosed with Takayasu arteritis. Computed tomography angiography showed that all the supra-aortic arteries were occluded except an aberrant right subcalvian artery. The patient underwent drug coated balloon dilatation at the lesion of right common carotid artery and performed well after the procedure. Six months later, The patient ’s symptoms have not recurred and computed tomography angiography showed right carotid artery remain patency.

We present the results of a patient-level meta-analysis of the two currently completed and core-lab adjudicated prospective trials of Jetstream atherectomy system (Boston Scientific) in femoropopliteal in-stent restenosis (FP-ISR) and compare the findings to a published, prespecified 6-month performance goal of target-lesion revascularization (TLR) with angioplasty alone. METHODS: The JETSTREAM-ISR (n = 29 patients; n = 32 lesions) was a two-center feasibility study that evaluated Jetstream atherectomy in FP-ISR. The JET-ISR (n = 60 patients; n = 60 lesions) was a 10-center investigational device exemption study that e...

In this study, we examined the association of vitamin D status with high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1)-mediated pathways (HMGB1, receptor for advanced glycation end products [RAGE], and Toll-like receptor-2 and -4 [TLR2 and TLR4]) in neointimal hyperplasia in atherosclerotic swine following bare metal stenting. Yucatan microswine fed with a high-cholesterol diet were stratified to receive vitamin D-deficient (VD-DEF), vitamin D-sufficient (VD-SUF), and vitamin D-supplemented (VD-SUP) diet. After 6 months, PTCA (percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty) followed by bare metal stent implantation was performed in the...
