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.

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.
When a modified surgical technique was used to gently remove sections of leg veins used in coronary artery bypass surgery, the grafts were less likely to become blocked and fewer people had a recurrence of heart-related chest pain, according to new research published in Circulation.
Medical management of type B aortic intramural haematomas is associated with low early mortality but a 19% risk of aortic-related intervention—primarily for proximal descending thoracic aneurysms, researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, USA, have found.
