New APERTO AVF RCT data show DCB reduces restenosis significantly more than high-pressure balloon alone

Matteo Tozzi (Varese, Italy) discusses new data from the APERTO AVF study, the first randomised trial in China to compare the safety and efficacy of the APERTO drug-coated balloon (DCB; Cardionovum) with a high-pressure [...]

Comprehensive innovation programme gives insights into the technologies of the future

Yesterday, the CX Innovation Showcase reviewed technological developments happening in all areas of the Charing Cross (CX) symposium: acute stroke, aortic, peripheral, venous, vascular access, and wound care. Additionally, a new “Dragons’ Den” winner [...]

New MIMICS-2 trial data show helical stents provide durable treatment of diseased femoropopliteal arteries

New data from the MIMICS-2 trial show the BioMimics 3D stent, which mimics natural vascular curvature, remains safe and effective for patients with symptomatic atherosclerotic disease of the femoropopliteal arteries two years after implantation. [...]

Multicentre dataset reveals the added value of diffusion-weighted imaging in TEVAR practice

Novel data from the Stroke from Thoracic Endovascular Repair (STEP) collaborators has provided insight into current practice of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), and the future role of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) in [...]

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

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. [...]
