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 […]
