The last word on the paclitaxel controversy
The meta-analysis of Katsanos et al in JAHA suggests the need for a reappraisal of paclitaxel-coated balloons and paclitaxel-eluting stents. CX 2019 will carry out an in-depth independent review of the benefits of paclitaxel in reducing restenosis versus the concerns of increased mortality raised by Katsanos. An open discussion will follow in front of a number of key regulatory bodies including the FDA, MHRA and BPharm.
