Trial shows BD balloon compares well with angioplasty for CLI

BD (NYSE: BDX) today touted the results of a clinical trial that showed “statistically significant safety equivalence” between its Lutonix 014 drug-coated balloon (DCB) and a standard angioplasty catheter (PTA) in treating narrowed or obstructed arteries below the knee. The trial’s primary safety endpoint—freedom from composite all-cause death, above the ankle or major reintervention of the treated limb through 30 days—was met in both the proportional and binary and Kaplan Meier analyses of patient survival following a medical procedure. BD presented the trial results during a late-breaking clinical trials session at the Vascular Interventional Advances (VIVA) conference in Las Vegas.

Dysfunction of different components within continuous-flow (CF) left ventricular assist device (LVAD) systems may cause adverse cardiovascular and end-organ sequelae. Outflow graft obstruction is a recognized type of LVAD component dysfunction. Ten patients were admitted and treated for LVAD outflow graft obstruction. Two of these patients subsequently developed recurrent outflow graft obstruction requiring reintervention; however, each reoccurrence was at a different site than the original obstruction. Thus, a total of 12 cases of obstruction were analyzed. The most common reasons for hospital admission were low flow LVAD...

Authors: Watanabe S, Oda J, Nakahara I, Matsumoto S, Suyama Y, Hasebe A, Suzuki T, Tanabe J, Suyama K, Hirose Y Abstract Mechanical thrombectomy using a retrograde approach is performed for tandem occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA). In our patient, a guiding catheter was easily passed by the stenosed lesion despite severe stenosis at the ICA origin. Therefore, we aimed to recanalize the occlusion of the terminal ICA without angioplasty for the stenosed lesion. When contrast was injected, a massive extravasation of contrast from the C2 portion of the ICA was observed. It was speculated that the bleeding ...

The first interventional procedure in neonates was described in 1966 by W.J. Rashkind [1]. He reported a trans-catheter balloon atrio-septostomy in a new-born with transposition of the great arteries {S,D,D}. Although the first description of an interventional procedure was in a neonate with a congenital heart disease, the ulterior development of interventional cardiology in this field has been rather limited compared to that in adults with coronary or structural heart diseases. Since the first description of coronary balloon angioplasty by Gruntzig in 1977, millions of PCI have been performed around the world.

One of the main causes of chest pain is a blockage of blood flow down the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that deliver oxygenated blood to our heart muscle to allow it to beat. Depending on how fast the blockage forms, it is labeled as either a stable or unstable blockage. Unstable blockages occur quickly when an atherosclerotic plaque ruptures within the coronary artery and a clot forms on top of it. The clot, along with the plaque, can obstruct blood flow, deprive heart muscle of oxygen, and lead to a heart attack. This is called an acute coronary syndrome, and it frequently requires a minimally invasive procedure c...

Endovascular interventions are commonly utilized for treatment of femoropopliteal peripheral artery disease. The relative efficacy of these interventions remains unclear. A Bayesian network meta-analysis was performed comparing 5 endovascular treatment modalities: balloon angioplasty (BA), bare metal stent (BMS), covered stent (CS), drug coated balloon (DCB), drug eluting stent (DES) for femoropopliteal peripheral artery disease. The primary efficacy endpoints were freedom from target lesion revascularization (TLR) and primary patency at 12 months.

Semin intervent Radiol 2020; 37: 207-213 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1709207There is no consensus for the treatment of a tandem occlusion (TO) in a patient presenting with an acute ischemic stroke. In this review article, we will focus on the controversial treatment strategies for TOs. First, we will discuss treatment options including retrograde, antegrade, and delayed approaches. Second, the role of carotid stent placement versus balloon angioplasty for the extracranial occlusion will be presented. Third, anticoagulation and antiplatelet regimens for the treatment TOs published in the literature will be reviewed. Finally, we wil...
