What to Know About Peripheral Artery Disease —and Its Connection to Diabetes
When we think of clogged arteries, most of us think about the heart. “But buildup of fatty plaques can happen in any artery, including those that carry blood away from the heart,” says Dr. Samuel Kim, a preventive cardiologist and lipidologist at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York. The arteries that branch out and feed into our arms and legs make up the bulk of what we call peripheral arteries. And the narrowing in these vessels is referred to as peripheral artery disease (PAD), a common condition in which the legs or arms don’t receive sufficient blood flow. “Interestingly, arteries in our legs and...

Non-Invasive FFR Gets Boost from Medtronic
FFRangio was developed by CathWorks, an Israeli company, and was approved by the US FDA in 2018, and a year later by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Japan. The pivotal study that led to FDA approval, FAST-FFR, showed that angiography-derived FFR was highly accurate when compared with pressure-wire FFR. This week Medtronic announced that it was investing $75 million in the company, co-promoting its use, and has an option to acquire CathWorks for $585 million, once certain milestones are met.
