New data provide “another argument” for the use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in below-the-knee (BTK) interventions. This is according to Michael Lichtenberg (Arnsberg Vascular Center, Arnsberg, Germany), who presented one-year outcomes from the PRESTIGE pilot study at the Leipzig Interventional Course (LINC) 2022 (6–9 June, Leipzig, Germany).
Cagent Vascular has announced the expansion of its product offering to include larger balloons to treat superficial femoral and popliteal arteries in the above-the-knee (ATK) segment.
Shockwave Medical and Genesis MedTech Group announced today that they have successfully obtained approval from China’s National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) to market and sell the Shockwave intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) system with the Shockwave C2 coronary IVL catheters and the Shockwave M5 and S4 peripheral IVL catheters in China.
New long-term data from the SAFE-PAD (Safety assessment of femoropopliteal endovascular treatment with paclitaxel-coated devices) study were presented today as late-breaking clinical research at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions (SCAI) 2022 Scientific Sessions (19–22 May, Atlanta, USA). The analysis found no meaningful difference in survival between patients treated with a paclitaxel drug-coated device and those treated with a non-drug-coated device for up to six years after the index procedure, regardless of the patient’s mortality risk and device type.
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions (SCAI) has released a position statement outlining competencies for endovascular specialists who provide care for chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI).
iVascular has announced the initiation of its first trial with the new generation covered stent iCover—the iliCo study. The study has the objective of evaluating the safety and effectiveness of iCover for the treatment of de novo aorto-iliac atherosclerotic lesions in patients with symptomatic arteriopathy of the lower limbs.
Medtronic announced new randomised controlled data demonstrating the sustained and superior performance of IN.PACT AV drug-coated balloon (DCB) compared to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) through 36 months, with no difference in mortality. The data was presented as a Podium 1st at the 2022 Charing Cross (CX) Symposium in London, UK.
New long-term data presented at the 2022 Charing Cross (CX) Symposium (26–28 April, London, UK) demonstrate the safety of Biotronik’s Passeo-18 Lux paclitaxel drug-coated balloon (DCB) for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in infrainguinal arteries.
The preliminary results from a clinical trial assessing a restorative haemodialysis access graft have shown promising early puncturing, patency and safety data. These findings from an ongoing first-in-human study of the Axess graft (Xeltis) are being presented for the first time by trial investigator Matteo Tozzi (University of Insubria, Varese, Italy) today at the Charing Cross Symposium (CX 2022; 26–28 April, London, UK and virtual).
Cleaning and low-level disinfection (LLD) effective against bloodborne pathogens are safe and sufficient procedures for disinfecting ultrasound transducers used in percutaneous procedures—this is according to an intersocietal position statement recently issued by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM).
The third-generation Anaconda endograft (Terumo Aortic) provides “high technical success” and “satisfactory” five-year aneurysm exclusion and clinical success rates, a French multicentre prospective observational study (EPI-ANA-01) has found.
