Endarterectomy For Isolated Atherosclerotic Lesions Of The Politeal Artery

In the endovascular era, angioplasty has grown a large place in the treatment of peripheral artery disease. Few studies have been focused in short atherosclerotic lesions of the popliteal artery itself, which remain for many surgeons a critical zone for the technical approach decision. We herein describe simple techniques of popliteal endarterectomy for the treatment of short popliteal occlusive disease.

Authors: Costa Moreira A, Sousa A, de Ribamar Costa J, Costa R, Damiani L, Campos Neto C, Maldonado G, Sousa JE Abstract BACKGROUND: We sought to develop a risk score to estimate the risk of major adverse cardiac event (MACE) occurrence during the in-hospital and long-term follow-up periods after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. METHODS: This score was developed and validated in a single-center database encompassing all consecutive patients treated with DES between 2007 and 2014 (n = 4061). For the development of the score, we analyzed all patients treated bet...

This study enrolled patients who underwent Rotablator (Rota group) and those who did not (Non-rota group) between January 20 10 and 2014 December at 12 hospitals. A total of 67 limbs and 68 lesions in 65 patients were included (Rota group; 54 limbs and 55 lesions in 52 patients, Non-rota group; 13 limbs and 13 lesions in 13 patients). In the Rota group, a technical success rate was 94.5% with a complication rate of 1.8%, and all lesions underwent subsequent postdilatation following the adjunctive use of Rotablator, and approximately half of above-the-knee lesions underwent stent implantation. The Rota group had a significa...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIntravascular imaging has been increasingly incorporated into endovascular practice. The goal of this review is to explore the contemporary technologies used to perform intravascular imaging as well as the evidence supporting their use in the diagnostic assessment and treatment of peripheral vascular disease.Recent FindingsAlthough intravascular imaging has been more extensively studied in the coronary vasculature, there is a growing body of literature studying its use in other vascular territories. There are unique advantages and disadvantages for the two most commonly employed imaging modalities ...

CONCLUSION: Lesion preparation with AngioSculpt™ scoring balloon represents a safe and effective tool in the treatment of complex femoropopliteal lesions. In this retrospective analysis, AngioSculpt™ scoring balloon angioplasty did not significantly improve vessel patency- both when used as an adjunctive in preparation for stenting and as stand-alone treatment. A prospective study is needed to further investigate the scoring balloon treatment options. PMID: 32036430 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

MD+DI has taken a hard look at the private medtech sector and developed this list of 20 private companies we will be paying particularly close attention to in the new year. It was not an easy task. There are so many interesting private companies in the industry right now that we started with a much longer list and whittled it down to the 20 companies that stood out most to us. So without further ado, here are the 20 companies that made the cut: 4C Medical is developing the AltaValve, a transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) platform designed to address mitr...

MedTech analysts continue to keep a watchful eye on the private sector. Needham &Co.'s Mike Matson recently called attention to five private medical device companies he finds interesting, adding to three previous lists the analyst published earlier this year. Matson was not the only medtech analyst keeping tabs on up and coming private companies in 2019. In January, Canaccord Genuity's Jason Mills highlighted 16 potentially disruptive medtech companies in the private sector. Here are the five companies Matson most recently highlighted. 7D Surgical:...
