Endovascular repair matches open surgery for treatment of men with complex but low-risk aortoiliac disease using self-expanding covered stents

2019-04-18T17:16:33+01:00

Michele Antonello

Endovascular repair shortens hospital stay and has comparable outcomes to open surgery when balloon-expandable covered stents are used to treat low-risk male patients with complex aortoiliac lesions, new data show. Michele Antonello (Padua, Italy), described some of the study’s key results during a presentation at […]

0.018-inch drug delivery platforms are as effective as 0.035-inch devices

2019-09-06T16:14:14+01:00

Andrew Holden

Interventionists can confidently use lower profile drug delivery platforms, based on data that shows 0.018-inch guidewire devices are non-inferior to 0.035-inch guidewires. In a Podium 1st presentation at Charing Cross (CX) Symposium on Thursday, Andrew Holden (Auckland, New Zealand) said: “At 90 days, we can […]

EVAR funding threatened, while strategy for safe, cost-effective repair is “just around the corner”

2019-04-18T09:59:05+01:00

The durability of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is in the limelight as the UK vascular community awaits the final aortic aneurysm guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), set to go against widespread endovascular practice in recommending open repair over EVAR. In May […]

Ambulatory treatment can be offered to high-risk patients too

2019-09-06T16:31:54+01:00

Office-based lower extremity arterial interventions are feasible, safe, and cost-effective, and provide high levels of patient satisfaction. Enrico Ascher (Brooklyn, USA) presented data that “challenges the dogma that high-risk patients should not be offered office-based endovascular infrainguinal arterial procedures”. He was providing a US perspective on ambulatory interventions at CX Symposium 2019.

Ascher cited studies that […]
