Andrew Holden (Auckland, New Zealand) provides perspective on the first results from the Disrupt PAD III observational registry that were presented at the Charing Cross International Symposium 2019. This large registry is designed to evaluate the use of Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL; Shockwave) in the treatment of calcified arteries beyond the […]
The 2019 Charing Cross Symposium (CX; 15–18 April, London, UK) featured an in-depth highlight session on the paclitaxel controversy. […]
Paul Hayes (Cambridge, UK), Frank Arko (Charlotte, USA) and Fabio Verzini (Turin, Italy) discuss the Valiant Navion™ (Medtronic) live thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) case at Charing Cross 2019, which demonstrated the use of the new CoveredSeal proximal configuration.
Hayes talks about the accuracy of the device’s deployment around the thoracic […]
The CX Innovation Programme showcased technological developments happening in all areas of the Charing Cross Symposium: acute stroke, aortic, peripheral, venous, vascular access, and wound care. Additionally, a new “Dragons’ Den” winner was crowned.
In the first talk of the session, Lindsay Machan (Vancouver, Canada) talked about the lessons he had learnt from being a founder […]
New MIMICS-2 trial data show helical stents provide durable treatment of diseased femoropopliteal arteriescxsymposium2019-09-06T16:12:16+01:00
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.
Principal investigator Timothy Sullivan (Minnesota, USA) presented the two-year findings at this year’s Charing […]
Endovascular repair matches open surgery for treatment of men with complex but low-risk aortoiliac disease using self-expanding covered stentscxsymposium2019-04-18T17:16:33+01:00
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 […]
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 […]
Using EndoAnchors to fix and seal endovascular aortic grafts is safe and effective for short-neck abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) patients, two-year data from the ANCHOR global registry have shown. Frank Arko (Charlotte, USA) presented the findings yesterday at CX Symposium in a podium first session, […]
As part of Wednesday’s CX Vascular Access Workshop in the Pillar Hall Learning Centre, there was a section of the programme on drug-coated balloon trial updates which ended with a panel discussion on whether peripheral vascular disease data is applicable to vascular access. The discussion […]
Yesterday, during the Aortic Podium 1st session, Fabio Verzini (Turin, Italy) reported that endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) with an iliac branch endoprothesis (Gore) is safe and effective. He added that the procedure was associated with improved quality of life in the short term and […]
For the first time, the Charing Cross (CX) audience has been able to experience an array of virtual reality live cases in both the peripheral and aortic programmes. The virtual reality live streaming in 360° video, accompanied by a running commentary by the operator, provided a […]
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 […]
Across the globe, vascular recruitment is struggling. This was the reason why delegates convened in the Upper Auditorium yesterday afternoon for a CX Highlight Session dedicated to the topic, where representatives from three continents explained exactly how and why the vascular specialty is experiencing this […]
Despite what current guidelines denote in addition to the emergence of data supporting the early intervention of venous ulceration, Alun Davies (London, UK) put forward that the recommendations are consistently being ignored, and highlighted that: “Urgent action is required to improve referral pathways between primary […]
CX Executive Board Members Gunnar Tepe and Thomas Zeller introduce the CX Special Session which aims to give the last word on paclitaxel and work with the vascular community to find the way forward.
Watch the video below, and see the final CX 2019 programme here.
Since the publication of Katsanos et al’s meta-analysis in the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA), the science and support for paclitaxel-releasing devices in the legs is an unfolding story.
A CX 2019 Highlight session will feature two hours of independent review of the data and in-depth debate and discussion.
Abstract Submissions for CX 2020 are now closed
The CX Abstract Board is calling for senior and trainee doctors in the vascular and endovascular field to submit their abstracts for presentation at the Charing Cross Symposium (21–24 April 2020, London, UK).
