Paclitaxel-coated device consensus update
Chairing:   TBA
Moderator:   TBA
In January 2020, a new meta-analysis published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR) suggested a higher risk of death or amputation in chronic limb-threatening ischaemia patients when paclitaxel-coated balloons are used in infrapopliteal arteries. This follows a previous meta-analysis, published in December 2018 in the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA), suggesting higher mortality in femoropopliteal disease patients treated with paclitaxelcoated devices. CX 2020 will dedicate a special session to distil the science from the hype, and tease out the evidence from the opinion - all the while keeping patients, and their physicians, front and centre. This special session will include input from the world-class CX Faculty, the regulatory bodies and from our expert audience.
