New Data for IN.PACT Drug-Coated Balloon Show Sizable Advantage Over Standard PTA in Peripherals

Dual presentations, made at the 2018 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) and the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) annual meetings in San Diego and Lisbon, showed significant superiority of Medtronic's IN.PACT Admiral drug-coated balloon (DCB) over standard Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty (PTA).

ConclusionThe Freeway Stent Study shows that the usage of DEB as a restenosis prophylaxis seems to be safe and feasible. The 12-month follow-up results give a clear sign in favor of the DEB group.

Abstract BACKGROUND: A recent summary-level meta-analysis comprising randomized, controlled trials (RCTs) of femoropopliteal paclitaxel-coated balloon and stent intervention identified excess late mortality in the paclitaxel-treated patients. METHODS: We evaluated the safety of the Stellarex drug-coated balloon (DCB) for femoropopliteal artery disease with an independently performed meta-analysis of patient-level data from all patients in the Stellarex femoropopliteal clinical program. To compare mortality after DCB or uncoated percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), we aggregated data from 2 RCTs compri...

Randomized controlled trials have shown that drug-coated balloons (DCBs) provide superior results compared with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for the treatment of femoropopliteal artery disease. However, these trials have generally included short lesions, few occlusions, and small sample sizes. The present study was an individual-level pooled analysis of duplex ultrasonography (DUS) core laboratory-adjudicated and clinical events committee-adjudicated IN.PACT Admiral DCB subjects across two randomized controlled trials and two single-arm prospective studies to characterize the safety and effectiveness of DCB compared with PTA.

CONCLUSION: Our technique of retrieval may be suitable for cases of balloon rupture with a circumferential tear during percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. The technique enables less invasive retrieval and continuation of the percutaneous transluminal angioplasty thereafter. PMID: 31434523 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the infrainguinal arteries was the first endovascular technique for improving lower extremity circulation. The procedure involves the inflation of a balloon-tipped catheter in stenotic or occluded vessels to improve perfusion and to increase downstream blood flow. New techniques are frequently compared with the results of PTA, making valid and robust PTA data essential. Our objective was to identify papers that present PTA outcomes and to perform a systematic review.

Authors: Mustapha JA, Brodmann M, Geraghty PJ, Saab F, Settlage RA, Jaff MR, Lutonix BTK Study Investigators Abstract OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that a drug-coated balloon (DCB) could improve treatment efficacy while maintaining safety when compared with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for the treatment of atherosclerotic infrapopliteal arterial lesions. METHODS: A total of 442 patients with angiographically significant lesions were randomized (2:1) to DCB or PTA. The primary safety and efficacy endpoints were freedom from major adverse limb events and perioperative death (MALE-POD) at 30 days, an...

Abstract Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is a routine procedure for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease. However, its main limitation is late restenosis occurring at a 1-year rate of 6%-60%. Restenosis arises from injury to the arterial wall including overstretching, compression and rupture of the atherosclerotic plaque during balloon inflation. It is hypothesized that better long-term angioplasty results are observed if atherosclerotic plaques are removed rather than compressed and fractured. Laser angioplasty is one method to remove atherosclerotic plaques. We discuss the principles of laser...
